The Oyster Club is a business and social network based in central London. As well as it being a monthly drop in drinks event, it is the umbrella brand for three separate membership clubs; 


The Black Pearl Club,the most unstuffy and unpretentious dinner club in London,with after dinner speakers,


The Cultured Pearl Club, an art, history, literature or philosophy based evening salon,


The Seed Pearl Club, a breakfast meeting with the added value of a workshop.



The Black Pearl Club is the most senior level of all the clubs. Past speakers have included Dorothea Hodge (Chief advisor to the leader of the House of Lords) Rachel Elnaugh (BBC TV's first lady dragon and founder of Red Letter Days, Mike Southon (author of The Beer Mat Entrepreneur) Paul Blanchard, PR expert and regular TV presenter and John Bird (founder of The Big Issue). Next up we have Jonathan Aitken, Camila Batmanghelidjh (founder of Kid's Company), Andy Lopata (described by the media as "Mr Networker") and Lord Jeffrey Archer. 

The Cultured Pearl Club is open to everyone who is keen to expand their knowledge within an interactive and welcoming forum. Past topics have included The History of the Dandy, The Femme Fatal in art of the 19 & 20 C,  How Eastern Sexuality has been Transported to the West via the Hippie Movement, The Life of Oscar Wilde, and An Exploration on the Kiss. Next up we have "The Secrets we Keep," followed by the Pre Raphaelites. 

The Seed Pearl Club is for those who wish to kick start their day with a collaborative and dynamic discussion on various ways to move business up a level and a workshop delivered by a guest speaker. Past topics have included Mediation Techniques, 9 Laws of Social Media, NLP Stress Relief, The History of Chiropractic, Positive Argument Techniques and How to get your Invoices Paid on Time.




The Oyster Club is not a referral driven network, we do not stand up and pitch, wear badges or make demands for leads. We are all about developing strong deep rooted relationships, built on trust and sharing good times together. When people feel that they belong, feelings of support and a desire to help fellow Pearls naturally follows suit. We also welcome members from the same industries as we find that more often than not they collaborate and/or pass business to each other. 

Everyone is warmly welcome to come and try an event. Following a visit, please note that membership is strictly by invitation and only if we feel that joining will be of mutual benefit.
