Historic members-only club founded in 1887 which harks back to a by-gone era of British colonial style and fabulously rich mining magnates. Nowadays the club is open to all sexes and races (so long as they obey the smart dress code) and hosts regular non-members events such as theatre performances, lunches and concerts. It's worth keeping an eye out for these events for the chance to glimpse the building's fabulous interiors.

Highlights include the well-stocked gun-room, the beautiful entrance hall with an impressive stained glass dome and grand staircase, the vast mahogany-panelled bar (said to be the longest in Africa) where beer is still served in tankards, the exceptional library, and the billiards room decorated with the taxidermied heads of dozens of African animals.
