The Twenty Two is a cultural space dedicated to the art of lingering. Designed for the creative, the curious and the non-conformist, we are London’s westside hideaway.
We encourage our Patrons to use The Club at The Twenty Two (“The Club”) as a place of study as much as a social space.
These rules (the "Rules") are to ensure our Patrons and their guests treat each other with respect in The Club and to oversee the handling of applications and memberships, which will allow The Club to be enjoyed by all. The Twenty Two shall curate a Committee (“The Committee”) to embody and enrich The Club and its philosophy; and to uphold these Rules.
PART A – MEMBERSHIP AND PAYMENT
1. PATRONS OF THE TWENTY TWO
A Patron of The Twenty Two is any person who has a current Membership of The Club. All Patrons agree to be bound by these Rules and any further rules or regulations as amended by The Club, from time to time. It is your responsibility to r check our website regularly to ensure that you are aware of the latest up to date version of our Rules, as you shall be bound by them.
Patrons shall be responsible for ensuring that their guests are aware of and honour these Rules and will be held personally responsible for their guests’ conduct and any transgressions at all times. A failure to ensure that your guests follow all Club Rules and conduct themselves in an appropriate manner whilst on The Club’s premises may result in the suspension or termination of your membership.

Once the Patron App has been successfully downloaded, the Patron will be guided through the required steps to complete your membership.

Any memberships at risk of suspension or termination will be reviewed at our monthly Committee meetings and notified to you, where appropriate.
