Earlier this year, photographs of Taylor Swift and Matty Healy at a New York private club spread on social media, leading the pop singer to cancel her membership. Yet, this venue, along with others around the world, continued to be a hangout spot for famous figures such as Alicia Keys and Bill Gates throughout the years. So, we created an overview for six of these places in the list below.
6. Casa Cipriani (New York)
Despite going under the spotlight for the aforementioned Swift-Healy incident, the club located in a Beaux-Arts-style building in Lower Manhattan holds a 4,000-person waiting list, as mentioned by Fortune. The club offers a restaurant, jazz cafe, and a rooftop with a New York view to its customers, including Ryan Reynolds, Alicia Keys, and Chrissy Teigen.
5. Yellowstone Club (Montana)
According to its website, Yellowstone Club is the only private mountain ski resort with a range of activities like skiing, golf, and dining. Additionally, its ‘World Membership’ program collaborates with institutions such as St. Andrew’s golf course in Scotland and gives access to yachts and Gulfstream jets. Some of its members are rumored to be Bill Gates, Tom Brady, Ben Affleck, and Justin Timberlake.
4. San Vicente Bungalows (Los Angeles)
While its facilities go from a restaurant and pool to event spaces and guest rooms, San Vicente Bungalows in Los Angeles protects the privacy of members with strict rules forbidding smartphones in the venue. Reportedly, it often welcomes figures like Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Zoë Kravitz, Sydney Sweeney, Dakota Johnson, and Jamie Lee Curtis.
3. Silencio (Paris)
Established by American filmmaker David Lynch, this club regularly hosts celebrities, including Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Lindsay Lohan, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Although the place mostly serves artists, it opens its doors to the public after midnight.
2. Annabel’s (London)
Known for its Rococo-style design, the club at 46 Berkeley Square hosted many names, from Lady Gaga and Drake to Naomi Campbell and Kate Moss, throughout its 60-year history. According to the rumors, it even welcomed Queen Elizabeth II at some point.
1. Zero Bond (New York)
Settled in an area of 20,000 sq ft in New York, Zero Bond made the news when Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran came together there after a long time. But it also created a customer profile including celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Gigi Hadid, and Blake Lively throughout the years. The club reportedly offers an Assouline library, a screening room, $10 million worth of art, an omakase room, and a bar to its members.
