White's is a gentleman's club situated in St James's Street, London, United Kingdom. Founded in 1693, it is the oldest and also widely considered one of the most exclusive gentleman's club in London.

  • Der White’s Club ist einer der ältesten und renommiertesten britischen Clubs. Seine Wurzeln hat er im 1693 gegründeten chocolate house Francis Whites in der Londoner St. James Street. Nachdem dieses 1711 ausgebrannt war, richtete Johann Jacob Heidegger im Lokal eine Ticketverkaufsstelle für seine Bälle und Maskeraden ein, die bald zum Treffpunkt der gehobenen Londoner Gesellschaft wurde. Als Club im eigentlichen Sinne fungiert der White’s indes erst seit 1736. Innerhalb der St. James Street zog er mehrfach um, bis er sich schließlich 1778 in dem Regency-Bau auf Nr. 38 niederließ. 1811 baute Martindale das berühmte Bogenfenster ein, das dem White’s seine unverwechselbare Fassade geben sollte.
