  • The Athenaeum is a private members' club in London, founded in 1824. It is primarily a club for men and women with intellectual interests, and particularly (but not exclusively) for those who have attained some distinction in science, engineering, literature or the arts. Humphry Davy and Michael Faraday were the first chairman and secretary and 51 Nobel Laureates have been members. The clubhouse is located at 107 Pall Mall at the corner of Waterloo Place. It was designed by Decimus Burton in the Neoclassical style, and built by the company of Decimus's father, James Burton, the pre-eminent London property developer. Decimus was described by architectural scholar Guy Williams as "the designer and prime member of the Athenaeum, one of London's grandest gentlemens' [sic] clubs". The clubhouse has a Doric portico, above which is a statue of the classical goddess of wisdom, Athena, from whom the club derives its name. The bas-relief frieze is a copy of the frieze of the Parthenon in Athens. The club's facilities include an extensive library, a dining room known as the coffee room, a Morning Room, a drawing room on the first floor, a restored smoking room (smoking is no longer permitted) on the upper floor, and a suite of bedrooms.

  • Le Club Athenaeum (en anglais Athenaeum Club) est un gentlemen's club de Londres. Fondé en 1824, il a accueilli des personnalités connues, comme Humphry Davy, qui en fut le premier président, ou Michael Faraday, qui fut le premier secrétaire. L'établissement de style néoclassique (situé au 107, Pall Mall, au coin de la Waterloo Place) a été conçu par Decimus Burton, alors âgé de seulement 24 ans. Il comprend un portique dorique au-dessus duquel se trouve une statue de la déesse classique de la sagesse, Athéna. La frise en bas-relief est une copie de celle du Parthénon, à Athènes. Au premier étage, on trouve une vaste bibliothèque, une salle à manger connue sous le nom de la salle du café (Coffee Room), la salle de la matinée, un salon. Le club propose également un fumoir nouvellement restauré, où il est interdit de fumer, et une suite de chambres à coucher. Les femmes sont admises depuis 2002. (fr)
