is a not-for-profit members’ club devoted to giving London’s homeless or long-term unemployed the skills and experience they need to get back into work.
We are proud to be a part of this mission, offering practical support to the club’s Employment Academy, where people are now training and getting practical work experience towards earning City & Guilds qualifications in Hospitality.
Our vision for the House of St Barnabas is to help create a future were lasting employment is a reality for those affected by homelessness and social exclusion.
The House itself is a Soho gem. Fine, early Georgian rooms, decorated with intriguing art-works (many of which have been created or donated by members) offer playful, stylish spaces for dining, drinking or just relaxing with friends.
The ambience is London Gentleman’s Club meets modern art gallery, with intimate dining rooms, a classic club bar and a bright and spacious garden for al fresco dining and drinking. The garden, surrounded by centuries old brick walls and decked in greenery, is one of Soho’s great secret spaces.
The menu ranges from traditional mains such as rib-eye steaks and braised rabbit crusty-puff pie to seafood linguine and pan-fried seabass.
There’s a passageway that leads into the exquisite Chapel Of St Barnabas, home to London’s Macedonian Orthodox Community. When services are being held at the weekend, you will hear the voices of the St Michael & All Angels Choir coming from this secluded 17th Century Chapel,
