Club Wembley opens ‘exclusive members club’

Club Wembley has opened the latest exclusive members’ facility at Wembley Stadium in London, England, in the form of the One Twenty Club.

Guests entering the new facility will pass through a sculptural oversized angular canopy before ascending an illuminated staircase, past a double storey oak-panelled wall.

Club Wembley said the lounge area has been designed to be ‘evolutionary’, with features including small furniture clusters and swivelling chairs.

The bar area boasts a brass chandelier that floats up to the exposed panelled petrol ceiling, while the restaurant has a ceiling lattice that Club Wembley said breaks the traditional grid system.

KSS Group, which worked with Club Wembley on the project, said: “Refurbished by Portview Fit-Out, One Twenty is the finest offering from Club Wembley delivering a unique concept unseen in sport, providing the next era of luxury and subtle extravagance.”

The club was used for the first time during Sunday’s Community Shield match between leading English Premier League football club Arsenal and Chelsea.

Victor Moses had put Chelsea ahead just after half-time in front of a crowd of 83,325, but Sead Kolašinac equalised for Arsenal later on in the second-half, sending the match to a penalty shoot-out.

Arsenal went on to win 4-1 on penalties after Theo Walcott, Nacho Monreal, Alex Oxlaide-Chamberlain and Olivier Giroud all converted their spot-kicks.

Gary Cahill was the only Chelsea player to score from the spot, as teammates Thibaut Courtois and Alvaro Morata missed the target.
