With pink onyx sinks, gold swan-shaped taps and a ceiling of silk roses, it is not your usual nightclub toilet.

In fact, the ladies’ loo at the exclusive Annabel’s nightclub in Mayfair is so over-the-top that it has almost become a pilgrimage site.

Well-heeled guests have taken to posting pictures on Instagram of them posing among the powder room’s plush fittings, surrounded by gilt and marble and even a statue.

The Berkeley Square club reopened in March after a major revamp that involved relocating from the basement at No 44, where it opened in 1963, to a Grade I-listed Georgian house at No 46.

It boasts three floors of extravagantly decorated rooms, a well-stocked wine cellar and a lavish outside area in the styled of a traditional English country garden.

The club was founded by entrepreneur Mark Birley and named after his wife, the future Lady Annabel Goldsmith. 

The current joining fee reportedly ranges from £250 to £1,250, with the annual subscription costing up to £2,750.

In 2007, clothing and restaurant tycoon Richard Caring bought Annabel’s in a reported £95million deal. 

Last year he hired two socialite aristocrats to sift through the list of the club’s 7,000 members and remove those ‘who are not really cool’.
