Mantis Group takes over management of the Devonshire Club

UK: London private members’ club Devonshire Club has appointed Steven Cowie as GM after Mantis Group took over management of the property.

Cowie, who worked as a general manager for InterContinental Hotel Group for the past eight years, joined Devonshire Club last month.

Devonshire Club, in the City of London, close to Liverpool Street, has 68 bedrooms, events spaces, walled gardens, several bars and the Number Five restaurant. Non-members can use the club either as a hotel guest or can access the building from Friday evening to Sunday inclusive.

As part of Mantis’ management contract, the club joins the Mantis Collection of properties, which includes boutique hotels, game reserves, eco lodges, chalets and yachts. AccorHotels recently bought a 50 per cent stake in Mantis.

Cowie said: “I’m incredibly excited to be able to announce my new position within Devonshire Club. It’s a beautiful members club and hotel, and like Mantis, I am similar in ethos with the Club. Having observed the developments over the past year, such as the opening of new restaurant Number Five, headed by chef Adam Gray, I really look forward to being part of Devonshire Club’s future.”

Other UK venues in the Mantis Collection are the Draycott Hotel in London’s Cadogan Gardens, the Lord Milner in Belgravia, London, and the Alladale Wilderness Reserve in Ardgay, Scotland.
