White's is a gentlemen's club in London, England. Founded in 1693, it is the oldest and also widely considered one of the most exclusive gentleman's club in London. Both Lord John Grey and his elder brother Harold Grey are members of this club.

History

The club was originally established at 4 Chesterfield Street, off Curzon Street in Mayfair, in 1693 by an Italian immigrant named Francesco Bianco as a hot chocolate emporium under the name Mrs. White's Chocolate House. Tickets were sold to the productions at King's Theatre and Royal Drury Lane Theatre as a side-business. White's quickly made the transition from teashop to exclusive club and in the early 18th century, White's was notorious as a gambling house and those who frequented it were known as "the gamesters of White's." Jonathan Swift referred to White's as the "bane of half the English nobility. Whilst the club does not have members' accommodation, facilities include a private dining room and a billiards room.[1]
