Governed by a small clique of prominent ladies called the “Lady Patronesses,” Almack’s Assembly House was a place to see and be seen in Regency London. Opened in 1765 on King Street, St. James, the club was in direct opposition to the notoriously entertaining masquerade balls hosted by Mrs. Cornely at Carlisle House. The highly coveted “vouchers” of admission were the ultimate sign of acceptance for a well-bred young lady, and the absence of one was akin to social disaster for those dedicated to their position in the ton. Finally, you can secure your very own slot among eighteenth-century London’s high society.
