The gentlemans’ club

Pleased as I am with Soho house, I kind of like the idea of old school social club, like Phoenix Nights, or those places with old men playing pool in Stoke Newington. How do you get involved in that sort of thing? Where are those clubs?

I need somewhere else good to play pool, that isn’t the Elbow Room*… And maybe jam. Like Buena Vista.

* not that there’s anything wrong with that. But variety, y’know?
