HISTORY

Established over a decade ago The Manhattan Club started out with a simple concept:

“To collect members with an appreciation of innovative food, fine wine and the world’s best spirits”  – Mark Britton

After cocktail classes, taster menus from Michelin star chefs and an evening of Hennessy cognac and chocolate, The Manhattan Club has grown into an events company which aims to spoil, while educating its members and guests with an array of events built around the foundations of that original concept.
