KPMG To Shut Private Members' Club

KPMG appears to be facing a financial squeeze, as it is preparing to shut down its private members’ club in Mayfair and move staff to Reading as part of efforts to trim £100m in costs.

The Telegraph reports that KPMG is exploring plans to close the five-storey townhouse at 20 Grosvenor Street, which boasts a rooftop terrace, restaurant and private meeting rooms.

Known as Number Twenty, the facility was set up only four years ago to entertain clients.
