Inside the bizarre secret underground men's club for the super rich

An exclusive secret cellar which plays host to some of the richest men on earth has become the hot topic of discussion in Germany thanks to its mysterious and bizarre existence.

The newly-opened Contenance Club in Munich can be found deep below the city's streets in a location not even known by its members. Remarkable, considering VIP membership to the elite club, which includes pick-up from a private jet, costs up to an eye-watering $1.6 million.

Anyone who wishes to part with that kind of money is given a random meeting point before being blindfolded and led underground.

The extravagant 300 square metre location comprises of several rooms where guests are fed copious amounts of caviar and prime Kobe beef, while the champagne appears to endless.

But its most controversial talking point appears to be its policy on women. They are strictly banned inside the premises, unless they work there of course.

Any female wanting to work at the club however must adhere to a strict set of rules, which leaves only a small amount of women suitable for the job.

Despite this, its developer Walter Dietrich revealed the women are respected within their workplace.

"The women are fine with us, no one is groped like Harvey Weinstein," he said.

The club's owner, known only as Michael, revealed to Vice their concept is to exclude the masses.

"[Normal people] complain too much. I don’t want anyone in here who just sits in the corner all night drinking Coke and looking sour," he said.

The club is believed to have around 200 members and the cheapest membership begins at $80,000.
