Union History

The Union Club was set up 25 years ago by ex North Sea oil rigger Pete Cross and Chef Carolyn Dawson.

The building was rescued from semi-dereliction (the previous tenant had set fire to it) and, after lashings of TLC from a crew of family, friends and waitresses to be - the doors were thrown open to members in September 1993

The club grew slowly, but steadily, through its youth, and now, more than two decades later, it has become an established Soho institution that is unique in its style, food and ethos.

In 2015 the club acquired the 4 storey neighbouring premises next door and expanded into this warehouse style space in September 2016, to create a dynamic new events space.

The Union team are headed up by former model Michala Cutting, who has been GM and 'Mother Goose' for the last 16 years.

Michala came to the Union after many years at the coal face of London hospitality and eventing; working with Conran, Novelli and Christina Ong on numerous flagship projects.
