Nobu, for a stylish take on Miami Beach
Nobu has opened a five-star hotel in Miami Beach, Florida. It’s already one of the Leading Hotels of The World, it’s as elegant and glamorous as one would expect, a landmark Art Deco hotel which offers world-class cuisine and service. For those who love Nobu’s fine food and style, it’s a dream destination—and our Members are invited to stay at exclusive Blue Ribbon rates.
This Nobu property, part of the group started by legendary Japanese chef Nobu Matsuhisa and actor Robert De Niro, is an hotel-within-an-hotel inside the historic Eden Roc on Miami Beach.

Nobu Hotel occupies Eden Roc’s original tower, built in 1956 by celebrated MiMo architect Morris Lapidus. The hotel is at the northern edge of the Miami Beach hotel strip, so it’s busy, but not overcrowded. Nobu’s laidback style extends throughout the 206 guest rooms which feature silver, pale blue, lilac and white hues, plus varied textures chosen by designer David Rockwell. Visitors have all the five-star facilities they could wish—plus Nobu private bar featuring Japan’s most popular sweets and Chef Nobu’s wines and sake, and 24-hour room service from Nobu Miami.

Stunning new natural turquoise necklace
Delightfully bold and vivid, the fabulous new Volonté Necklace can hold the attention from across a room. Our pick of the new international designer Atelier Collection, just arriving in London, it highlights a stunning natural oval turquoise gemstone capped in vintage silver, creating a sensational work of art.
This gorgeous necklace adds a standout finish to everything from a long silk dress to a kaftan, shirt or tee—so versatile, so uniquely attractive, it’s a designer piece you’ll wear often.
At its heart is that high quality natural turquoise from the turquoise mines in America, vivid in colour and beautifully figured with that natural web tracery which makes each piece both artistic and unique. The three turquoise stones are highlighted by four cloisonné rondels like vintage silvery nuts: beautiful, handmade to an ancient craft and decorated with tiny enamel flowers—so subtle, the colours and textures contrasting with and echoing the smooth turquoise gems. The final gem, natural agate, creates a smoky finale, and the necklace culminates in sterling silver links of chain, clasped in sterling silver.
It’s contemporary, with a vintage look that is a pure classic which will never go out of style. It arrives in a smart case for presentation. Necklace length 18in. Code AC19CC04. RRP £500. CCUK £197. Order Volonté Necklace from the Atelier Collection
Smart summer wool-linen jacket, £169
This beautiful new wool-linen jacket makes you want to put away your tweeds and saunter around wearing this, armed with a glass of Pimm’s. It is exceptionally elegant, with a subtle tonal navy check that adds great distinction, it has a beautiful hand feel, soft, smooth and supple, it is cool, it looks and feels made to measure, and you will want to wear it as often as possible.
Contemporary in style yet classical in quality, it is tailored in fine wool (90%) and linen (10%), so it’s cool yet well cut and it looks good all the time (it doesn’t crease like pure linen). It is single-breasted, two-button, fully-lined and with traditional notched lapels, flap pockets and two side vents. As a general rule, the more hand stitching the better—this has hand-stitched borders, pocket flaps and lapels. The collar is strengthened with felt.

The ultimate lobster feast: save £50
We are thrilled with our new arrangement for Members to enjoy these live lobsters. Nothing beats them as a gourmet centrepiece, and these Canadian (Maine) lobsters (Homarus Americanus) are simply the sweetest, most succulent and tender you will taste. Try them them and you will never return to pre-cooked lobster again.
Larger than our own natives, the Canadians have a sweeter taste and those our Tasting Panel tried recently were magnificent: well worth shouting about. These wild lobsters are caught by traditional lobster fishermen off the north-eastern coast of North America and flown straight to our suppliers for the UK’s Michelin-star chefs and five-star hotels—and now, happily, for our Members, who not only benefit from the fabulous quality but also from the Club’s wholesale price.
These live lobsters are easy to cook (about nine minutes’ steaming for this size) and the taste is sublime. You can create any kind of grand dish, but because they are so delicious there is no need to do anything but serve fresh from the pan and still warm with a few sprigs of fresh parsley and a side salad to create a gourmet lunch or dinner centrepiece.
Weights vary between 550 and 660kg per lobster, therefore one lobster per person gives a generous main course. Our suppliers will deliver two live Canadian lobsters direct to your door—you can have as many as you like, in pairs. Usually costing up to £100 each, these fine sea-fresh lobsters are only £47 for our Members including free overnight UK mainland delivery. Enjoy!
Finest Imperial Oscietra Caviar, £49
Our gourmet Members will be delighted with this new caviar: Calvisius Imperial Oscietra is the highest quality after the Royal Oscietra grade. The grains are larger, at 3mm, their colour light, almost golden, a colour that is extremely rare for a pure breed. Delicate, complex, creamy and with a delicious mellow, nutty flavour, this is truly a caviar to delight the connoisseurs.
It comes from the Russian sturgeon acipenser gueldenstaedtii, a species originally native to the Caspian Sea, Black Sea and Azov Sea. This sturgeon can weigh up to 60kg and takes at least 11 years before harvest. It is farmed to the highest standards by Calvisius, a caviar producer renowned worldwide.
This fine caviar is imported by W G White, the UK’s original caviar importers, founded in 1895. The Imperial Oscietra, named Ars Italica, arrives in a golden tin within a silver and black presentation case—an impressive testament to the quality of the contents and a suitably glamorous centrepiece for your table.
The Members’ price for 30g of this superb Imperial Oscietra Caviar is only £49 with free delivery instead of the usual £80. All weights available, saving Members £1,338 per kilo.
Beaujolais at its best: a snip at £129 for 12
This wine is in a different league to everyday Beaujolais. Singled out by the connoisseurs at Decanter as one of their recommended ‘Summer Red Wines to Drink Chilled’ it comes from Dupeuble’s 42ha of 50- 100-year-old vines, made in a natural way with wild yeasts, no sulphur, no fining and no filtering.
The result is a wine of succulent, fresh, vibrant red fruit with wonderful clarity and purity and fine acidity. The flavours are cherry, blackcurrant and raspberry, with hints of cinnamon, lavender and rose. It is medium-bodied, smooth, with lingering length and complexity on the finish.
This four centuries old Domaine, set in the hamlet of Le Breuil in the deep south of Beaujolais terres dorées, has been making wines from Gamay grapes since 1512. Damien Dupeuble runs the domaine today, with the whole family involved—and while much of this part of Beaujolais is dominated by negociants and large-scale producers churning out sub-standard nouveau, Dupeuble is of the quality-driven persuasion more commonly found in the crus to the north. Viticulture on the south-facing 50-100 year old vines is lutte raisonée and every grape here is manually harvested, with only wild yeasts used and no chaptalisation or filtration.
Drinking beautifully now, it makes an excellent match for rich summer foods. Perfect with pork and ham, the Club Tasting Panel found it mouthwatering with Iberico Pluma pork (see the Club Larder
), Mediterranean roast vegetables and herbs. Another of our Tasting Panel raves about it with turkey at Christmas: ‘You’ll pop cork after cork and never be disgruntled. It won’t let you down!. And at the Club price it’s a steal.
Gorgeous pearl and silver Renée Bracelet
Make a statement in this exceptional three-strand natural pearl Renée Bracelet set with Swarovski crystals on sterling silver. This lovely bracelet, just arrived in the new South Seas Pearl Collection, showcases three strands of lustrous round pearls with a central Art Deco inspired design featuring 200 brilliant pave-set crystals and capturing at its heart a single large pearl.
Beautifully handmade by our South Seas jeweller, this is a very desirable bracelet—it has just the right combination of elegance and panache, large enough to catch the eye, yet elegantly capturing the romance and subtlety of pearls.
