Wine Room Refurbishment

CLIENT: The Carlton Club
VALUE: £128,000
DATE: February 2019

The Carlton Club is one of London foremost members club and was founded in Georgian London in 1832. The club’s wealth and standing were such that they moved to a specially designed premises on Pall Mall in 1835. Unfortunately, during World War II this premises took a direct hit during the blitz and was destroyed. The club now resides at their current Georgian town house at 69 St James Street, London which is architecturally important and Grade II listed.


Quinn (London) Limited, referred to herein as QLL, were employed to convert a Grade II listed former library into a wine room at the Carlton Club.

  • Demolition of existing structure within the basement room, including the suspended ceiling and bookcases
  • Installation of suspended ceiling systems (proprietary and unit/ modular)
  • Full mechanical and electrical upgrade, including the installation of air conditioning
  • Internal redecoration and installation of cabinetry for the wine display
  • Restoration of windows, doors and skirting board
  • Alteration and landscaping of the rear terrace.

All works were carried out in a live environment, so we had to take precautions to prevent noise and dust. We liaised closely with the client to ensure that all disturbances were kept to a minimum. QLL actively engaged with the Carlton Club’s members to phase and sequence the works to minimise impact and disruption to members.

The project was finished to the highest of standards and has resulted in QLL being directly appointed to deliver further works at the Carlton Club, including the refurbishment of the main Cabinet Room.
