New private members' club Dorsia to launch in South Kensington

New private members' club and restaurant, Dorsia, will open its doors later this September. Located in a Georgian townhouse in South Kensington, this new development will hold three venues under one roof: a private club and bar together with a stand alone restaurant that will be open to both members and the public. Named after the fictional restaurant in the film American Psycho, Dorsia was founded by Nick Andreen and Fraser Carruthers - both formerly of members club Boujis.

In the wake of a £2.4 million refit overseen by interior designer George Rose, the building has been completely refurbished with period features restored. The basement has been transformed into a private members’ club that is itself divided into several very different and eclectically designed spaces. The ground floor hosts the members only bar, while the 40-seater restaurant is located on the first floor. In charge of Dorsia’s kitchens is Alexander Baillieu and mixologists and multi award-winners Thomas Gillgren (Sketch) and Fredrik Olsson (Kosmopol) will provide Dorsia’s cocktail menu.
