Time Out launches new members’ club Time Out Black

London is getting a new kind of members’ club. It’s brimming with the capital’s coolest perks, hand-picked events and access to unique experiences: Time Out Black launches today and with an annual fee of £59 the club allows members to enjoy the best of London all year round, meet like-minded people and save money.

Created for film enthusiasts, foodies and experience-hungry urbanists, members of Time Out Black get access to a raft of privileges that go beyond discounts. They will become part of one of London’s greatest film clubs with free movie screenings often in breathtaking venues, free monthly previews from leading documentary producers Dogwoof and reduced tickets for two at The Lexi cinema every Tuesday. Even dining out gets yummier with 50% off for up to four people in nearly 20 of the hottest, hand-picked restaurants across the city.

Additionally, members get tickets for new live music with Sofar Sounds and Woodburner, theatre previews in the West End and comedy every Thursday at Backyard Comedy – all for free. There’s also 20% off London’s best boozy brunch at Hip Hop Brunch and members-only invitations to events like cocktail master-classes and cooking courses with Michelin trained chefs. And what would a London club membership be without a home from home, just much more inspiring than home: the annual fee also includes access to two Soho members’ clubs, Lights of Soho and Phoenix Artist Club.

Time Out Black was created to make all the fun and the best bits of London accessible without breaking the bank. Londoners go out almost five times a month, spending nearly £280, according to a Time Out survey of 7,300 Londoners. Time Out Black can cut these costs by almost a half*.

Sarah Bartlett, CMO Time Out Group, said: “With Time Out Black we wanted to create a unique and new kind of members’ club for Londoners. A club that makes exclusive events others can only dream of and fantastic experiences both more accessible and more affordable. Every single day of the year, our members get to enjoy great value and to meet like-minded people. Time Out has always been about curating the best of the city –Time Out Black really brings this to life.”

Time Out Black is available now through for £59 a year.
