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.
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 formality 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.

Our monthly tribute evenings are class acts and are often a sell out. Book early and invite your friends for a fun evening with your favourite music
