Albemarle Club

The Albemarle Club is located in Albemarle Street, London, England. As a private club for both male and female members in the nineteenth century, it was somewhat unique. The club was criticized for its members’ progressive view of women’s rights. On 28 February 1895, the club gained notoriety for being the location of the exchange that precipitated the first trial of Oscar Wilde. At this club, John Sholto Douglas, 9th Marquess of Queensberry, handed Wilde the calling card that incited him to charge Queensberry with libel.
