1901 Arts Club is the brainchild of conductor and violinist Joji Hattori. Whilst living in London, he experienced the shortage of centrally located rehearsal and performance spaces for chamber music. With few options between the private living room on the one hand and Wigmore Hall on the other, he decided to fill the void.

As a philanthropic venture, Joji Hattori acquired and painstakingly restored an old schoolmaster’s house at 7 Exton Street in the style of a European Salon. He created a unique venue dedicated to supporting artistic expression and bringing together musicians, artists, and persons who share an appreciation and interest for the arts.

Built in 1901, the house maintains its late Victorian exterior while the Club’s beautifully decorated rooms re-create the intimate ambience of a private residence. With a performance space, meeting room, terrace and licensed bar among its facilities, the venue offers opportunities to make music with colleagues and friends, to meet with like-minded people, and to enjoy informal quality performances of all genres.

Since opening its doors to the public in 2007, 1901 Arts Club has established a reputation as the most intimate and unique event space in central London. It is used by acclaimed artists and renowned organisations to put on recitals and chamber concerts. The venue can be hired by individuals, groups or organisations for events, rehearsals and meetings.

In May 2015, the Hattori Foundation, a registered charity set up by the Hattori Family in 1992, took on the lease and business activities of 1901 Arts Club.

The work of the Club is now an extension to the existing charitable activities of the Hattori Foundation in the world of identifying, supporting and nurturing outstanding young musicians. See the separate Hattori Foundation website for further details about the grants on offer.

From the outside there will be very little noticeable change in the operations of the Club; we’re the same people and we’ll still be offering versatile and unique spaces for events, recitals, rehearsals, auditions, meetings etc., and as the building is now well-known as 1901 Arts Club we’re keeping that as our trading name.

1901 Arts Club is now an activity of the Hattori Foundation (registered charity no. 1014709). ​The Hattori Trust Company Limited (company no. 2749030) is trustee of Hattori Foundation. Registered office: 5 Fleet Place, London EC4M 7RD.
