Club Rules

In cultivating a cultured lifestyle, Le Beau Monde® brings together like-minded women, creating a collective that generates value for modern society through shared experiences and endeavours.

The following rules and regulations have been established to ensure a safe, respectful, and enjoyable environment for all members. Adherence to these rules is mandatory for membership in Le Beau Monde®.



All members are bound by the rules and regulations of The Club.

Membership is non-transferable and granted to individuals rather than couples or corporations.

The election of Members shall be at the absolute discretion of the General Committee.

No candidate for Membership under 25 years of age shall be eligible for Membership.



All discussions and events organised by the Club are conducted under the Chatham House Rule. This means that information shared at the Club shall not be attributed to any individual or organisation without their express consent. Members shall respect this rule and not share information in a way that could compromise the privacy and confidentiality of other members.



Members are permitted to capture photos and videos at Le Beau Monde’s activities and events, provided they do so discreetly and ensure that no other member is visible in the content. Members shall also ensure that any social media postings related to The Club are discreet and do not feature other members and their guests without their express consent.

This policy safeguards the exclusive nature of Le Beau Monde® and fosters a respectful atmosphere for all members to enjoy.

The Club activities and events shall be a place for enrichment, relaxation, and community, and all members shall be mindful of others and respect their space at all times. Mobile phones must be kept on silent to avoid disrupting the atmosphere of any activity or event organised by The Club.



Le Beau Monde® upholds a sophisticated atmosphere by requiring members and their guests to adhere to a specific dress code. Attire such as flip-flops, shorts, gym wear, sportswear, ripped jeans, baseball caps, hooded jumpers, beachwear, crop tops, fleeces, visible underwear, and overly revealing outfits are not accepted. This dress code ensures that the environment remains refined and comfortable, maintaining the distinguished character of the club for all members and guests to enjoy.



Members are welcome to bring one guest to a Salon ten times a year unless otherwise stated for an event. Please find more details here.

The relevant Member must always accompany their guest, for the duration of the event. Members are ultimately responsible for the behaviour of their guests.



Le Beau Monde® enforces a strict no-solicitation policy for all members, guests, and partners. This policy prohibits any solicitation of financial contributions or products and services for both personal and professional reasons. By maintaining a solicitation-free environment, the club ensures that members can focus on fostering meaningful connections and enjoying the enriching experiences offered, free from unwanted distractions or pressures.



Members are expected to respond to other members should they make contact. The ethos of our network is open communication among fellow members. Warnings shall be given should members be continuously unresponsive.

Members both in person and online should be respectful of individual views and avoid any discussions regards religion and politics.
