The best known among the old existing clubs are in St. James's Street — Brooks's, White's, Boodle's, Arthur's, and the Cocoa-tree. There are other important, and even more palatial club-houses here than these, such as the New University, the Conservative, and the Devonshire. The lofty front and fine semi-ecclesiastical portal of the New University is in striking contrast with the old Cocoa-tree house, and the characteristic courtyard of the adjoining hotel; as is also the entrance-hall of the Junior Army and Navy, with the unpretentious portals of White's.
