CLAS­SIC CROCKFORDS

There are ex­clu­sive, lux­u­ri­ous and re­fined clubs, and then there is Crockfords

Sharp Magazine Middle East (English) - - Crockfords -

LO­CATED in the heart of ex­clu­sive May­fair, “Crockfords was es­tab­lished in 1828 by Wil­liam Crock­ford and is the world’s old­est gen­tle­man’s club,” ex­plains Tony Pearce, Man­ag­ing Di­rec­tor of In­ter­na­tional Mar­kets for Gent­ing UK. “It is time­less, so­phis­ti­cated and dis­creet; and at­tracts a truly in­ter­na­tional clien­tele.”

To­day, Crockfords stays true to its orig­i­nal vi­sion of splen­dour and el­e­gance, fit for royalty, diplo­mats

and the aris­to­cratic elite. Club Di­rec­tor Tom Mol­loy com­ments: “We pride our­selves on our world-class cre­den­tials for de­liv­er­ing ex­cep­tional ser­vice and at­ten­tion to de­tail through­out all facets of the club and with­out ex­cep­tion.”

As part of the ded­i­ca­tion to de­liv­er­ing ex­cep­tional cus­tomer ser­vice to its val­ued Mid­dle Eastern mem­bers, Ahmed Hafez is the ded­i­cated Cus­tomer Re­la­tions Ex­ec­u­tive re­spon­si­ble for VIP Mid­dle Eastern mem­bers at Crockfords.

“It is my role to fos­ter and build re­la­tions with our VIP clien­tele,” Hafez ex­plains. His lin­guis­tic skills, cus­tomer knowl­edge and ex­pe­ri­ence of Mid­dle Eastern cul­tures and cus­toms is key to en­sur­ing that each and ev­ery VIP re­ceives a per­son­alised ex­pe­ri­ence each and ev­ery time they visit.

“Ev­ery day has a new chal­lenge and I en­joy work­ing with our mem­bers to en­sure that they have a mem­o­rable ex­pe­ri­ence. I look for­ward to wel­com­ing you,” he says.

As part of the per­son­alised ser­vice, Hafez and his team have ac­cess to a num­ber of pre­mium events from the UK’S so­cial and sport­ing cal­en­dar of­fer­ing mem­bers an op­por­tu­nity to en­joy the very best in Bri­tish hos­pi­tal­ity.

Fol­low­ing a re­fur­bish­ment to sev­eral rooms last year, Crockfords pro­vides a haven of lux­ury, tran­quil­lity and calm for its mem­bers, with its sooth­ing colour pal­ette and plush fur­nish­ings. Mem­bers can en­joy the fa­cil­i­ties 24 hours a day and ben­e­fit from a pri­vate smok­ing ter­race and a pent­house suite.

As you would ex­pect, Crockfords has a world-class restau­rant with an ex­ten­sive menu of de­lec­ta­ble in­ter­na­tional cui­sine that in­cludes Mid­dle Eastern, Ori­en­tal and Euro­pean dishes, all cooked to per­fec­tion us­ing the fresh­est and finest in­gre­di­ents avail­able. Din­ner can be served in the stun­ning din­ing room, com­plete with Wedge­wood ceil­ings and stun­ning chan­de­liers or in a pri­vate room if re­quired. Crockfords also boasts one of the most en­vi­able wine cel­lars in Lon­don.

“Along with ex­cep­tional cui­sine and ser­vice, our mem­bers can en­joy the high­est lev­els of com­fort and lux­ury,” ex­plains Chris Relph, Vice Pres­i­dent In­ter­na­tional Mar­ket­ing. “I can say with com­plete con­fi­dence that your ex­pe­ri­ence at Crockfords will be un­par­al­leled and we are proud to be the club of choice for the world’s elite.”
