The Southgate Club



The Southgate Club is a private members club and venue, situated in the heart of Southgate. The Club is run by its members for the benefit of members and the wider local community, who are welcome to share our facilities. 





Southgate Club can trace its roots back nearly two hundred years. Our club building is one of the oldest in Southgate; part of the Southgate Circus Conservation Area and recognised by English Heritage. The building was originally built for the Southgate Reading Room in 1820 and it was Sir Thomas Lipton, the founder of Liptons Teas who secured the freehold of the building for the club and for the people of Southgate in the 1850s. Two centuries on, we are still providing a friendly place for local people of all ages to meet, relax, socialise and feel part of the local community.


What does Southgate Club have to offer to members?


We have a licensed bar, where members can enjoy drinks and refreshments at favourable prices; entertain guests; watch games and matches with members and friends; join in a game of chess, cribbage darts, snooker or pool or just enjoy some quiet time on weekday afternoons, which are normally less busy.  In years gone by the club hosted many exhibition snooker matches, including Alex Higgins, Dennis Taylor and Doug Mountjoy.


If you are potentially interested in becoming a member of Southgate Club, a membership form can be downloaded from our website here. Your membership will need to be endorsed by two of our committee members, but don't let this formally hold you back.


Membership is only £60 a year, equivalent to £5 a month. Our membership runs from January to December;  but members can join at any time during the year, paying a pro rata rate. In addition, members receive discounts on tickets for events held at the club, as well reductions on room hire fees.


What does Southgate Club have to offer to the wider community?

Our licensed bar and function room are available for hire at reasonable prices.


Our function room, which has its own access from Crown Lane, hosts a wide range of private and public events, including comedy nights, including the Electric Mouse Comedy Nights on the first Friday of every month and the renouned Legendary Fortnight Club, where top comedians come to try out their new material;



as well as live music and tribute nights. 



Details of forthcoming events, which are open to all can be found on our website. Sign up to our mailing list for details of events at the club.


Weekly groups, including Slimming World and Line Dancing.


Birthdays, weddings and other social gatherings. You can take responsibility for your own catering, using our small kitchen, or else we can introduce you to our caterer, who has provided catering and refreshments for many engagements at the club.


The Southgate Club is a useful space for meetings and corporate events (including conferences, exhibitions & social gatherings); used by local businesses and those from further afield; due to our close proximity to Southgate Station.


We welcome inquiries fro charities looking to host events.
