Cardholders of The Platinum Card® from American Express are likely familiar with the issuer’s popular Platinum House initiative. Amex has opened pop-up Platinum Houses in places ranging from Coachella to Art Basel and more. Now, the Platinum House is going international.

In time for London Fashion Week, the first international Platinum House will be open in London between Thursday September 13, and Sunday, September 16. The temporary Platinum House will be located at the former site of Central Saint Martin’s College at 12-48 Southampton Row.

Cardholders can expect live music performances, complimentary food and beverage offerings, beauty services, access to an official London Fashion Week after party and more. While Amex has still yet to release tickets, most of which will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, they will eventually be available on American Express’ Platinum House site. If you’re interested in attending one of the ticketed events, you’ll want to check back on the page to be sure you get ahold of one.

The London Platinum House opening is a nice addition from Amex, expanding its benefits to a more international audience. As of time of publication, the landing page for the Platinum House remains pretty sparse. But once details are loaded onto the page, you’ll want to act quick if you’re interested in the first-come, first-served events.

The card currently comes with a welcome bonus of 60,000 points after you spend $5,000 in the first three months.
