It’s home to Drake, Leonardo DiCaprio and Kim Kardashian – and now New York’s Zero Bond has seen Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran reunite there.
But what about the private members’ club housed in a Victorian Gothic building that calls some of the world’s most famous and glamorous A-listers – including Gigi Hadid, who hosted her 27-year-old dinner party there.
Elon Musk threw a party at the celebrity hotspot after the Met Gala in 2021, which was attended by Chris Rock, DiCaprio and Bohemian Rhapsody star Rami Malek, while Kim and Pete Davidson enjoyed their second date at the venue elegant dating.
“Zero Bond feels like you’re in someone’s living room,” Kim explained, according to The New York Times. “(Owner Scott Sartiano) has an amazing way of creating these environments for people to escape the difficult aspects of their professional and personal lives,” added NFL star Tom Brady.
So maybe that’s why close friends Taylor and Ed decided to make the hotspot the scene of their Thursday reunion? Or it could have been due to the luxurious club lounges on two floors, the omakase restaurant or even the library.

The dining experience is what is called in Japanese an “omakese” which roughly translates to “I’ll leave it to (the chef)”.
It’s run by executive sushi chef Ry Nitzkowski, and tasting menus range from $145 to $245, not including truffle, caviar, or wagyu extras.
But that’s not the only delicious dish on offer – diners can enjoy pastas, pizzas, burgers and steaks in the club lounges.
On his instagram page, the club recently celebrated National Caviar Day with a hand-crafted seven-course Petrossian NYC Caviar Tasting Menu by Executive Chef Richard Farnabe paired with specialty champagnes.
Zero Bond, also nicknamed 0 Bond and “oh, Bond”, according to Timeoutopened in 2020. It has a screening room, $10 million worth of artwork and interior decorations by William Sofield, who worked in Gucci stores.
The initiation fee and annual membership prices are $5,000 if you are over 45. The cost drops to $4,000 if you’re under 45, and if you’re under 28, the price drops to $2,700.
Those wishing to join the club would need a letter of recommendation from a current member. The club’s membership committee will then reveal its decision based on “all aspects of the person’s character”.
Describing the club, its website read: ‘Whether you’re meeting a friend for lunch or a drink, arranging a meeting with an investor or going on a date, Zero Bond will have exactly what you need in the setting you want.

“In New York, finding the right balance between living, working and playing can be a challenge. Our homes and offices can only be part of the equation; Zero Bond is the piece you’ve been missing to perfectly complement city life.
He continued: “Although we do not discriminate based on race, socio-economic status or profession, we are very particular about character.
“We will only accept members who demonstrate a high level of integrity and demonstrate an ability to contribute to our Zero Bond community.
“Upon submitting an official application, the Membership Committee will consider and render a decision on acceptance after considering all aspects of the person’s character.”
Speaking to The New York Times, owner Scott Sartiano admitted he had originally looked at the club’s address and considered a hotel, but the building was too small.
So he set up an ‘urban housing and social workplace’ instead – which now apparently has 5,000 people on its waiting list to join.
“There was a void of places to go for sophisticated, successful people who still want to be social at night,” he said.
“The business model of most clubs is basically, ‘How many people can you stack on top of each other? I wanted to do the opposite.
He also said Robb Report magazine: “I’m a New York guy doing a New York version of a London social club.”
“I wanted athletes and actors to mingle with finance, doctors and fashion. It’s about bringing all these people together. I don’t want to favor a single audience. I don’t think that’s cool. I don’t think it’s New York,” he added.

Taylor reunited with close friend and collaborator Ed Sheeran in New York on Thursday after recently wrapping up the North American leg of his Eras tour.
The duo – who have worked on a number of songs together over the years – dined at the members-only Zero Bond social club. They were flanked by security as they exited the celebrity hotspot separately.
Taylor, 33, looked effortlessly elegant as she stepped out of the building in a rust-colored dress with a flowing satin skirt. Her blonde hair was tied in a braid and she sported black platform loafers to match her handbag.
The Anti-Hero singer was decked out in gold jewelry and carried a Louis Vuitton handbag slung over her shoulder. After leaving the hotspot, she walked to a chauffeured SUV parked just outside the facility.
Meanwhile Ed, 32, cut a relaxed figure in a white T-shirt and black skinny jeans. The British hitmaker hid most of her red hair under a cap and wore a hidden necklace under the collar of her shirt.
He strolled down the sidewalk in a pair of Jordan 1 Retro High OG Washed Black sneakers. He was not driven with his buddy as he was seen heading the other way with his security team.
Taylor is enjoying rare downtime after capping the first two North American legs of her Eras Tour with six sold-out shows at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, Calif.
Back-to-back shows saw a number of A-list stars flock to the venue to watch her perform with an estimated 500,000 fans.
The tour kicked off in Glendale, Arizona in March and was scheduled to end in Los Angeles on August 9, but more shows in the United States and Canada are planned for next year. Taylor will travel to South America later this month to perform in Mexico, Argentina and Brazil through November.
