The Sloane Club started life as part of a late Victorian redevelopment on an old 18th Century site in Chelsea known as Hans Town. The buildings with their red brick gables and fine detailing were in the style dubbed 'Pont Street Dutch' and were enviably near the many fashionable milliners, mercers and glove-makers lining Sloane Square.
The Service Women's Club was founded for serving and former lady officers of the Armed Forces in World War II, before becoming The Helena Club for ladies, established in the early 1960s by a lady-in-waiting to Princess Marie Louise.
Gentlemen were admitted during the following decade and by 1976 it had become The Sloane Club. While the exterior has remained unchanged, the interiors have undergone extensive refurbishment and has expanded to include a number of self-contained apartments.
