SIMON Cowell spent an evening at an exclusive London members-only club.
The music mogul, 61, showed off his tan in a chic charcoal suit with a button-up white shirt as he made his way to The Arts Club in Mayfair.
X Factor judge Simon returned to London last month with partner Lauren Silverman and their seven-year-old son Eric.
He traveled to Mayfair on Tuesday night in a black Royls Royce, a fitting entrance to the club whose annual membership will set you back £ 2,500.
Founded in 1863, members of the Arts Club are those working or interested in art, architecture, fashion, film, literature, music, performance, photography, science, theater and television / media.
After his decadent night out, Simon donned a disposable face mask to board his chauffeured ride and packed a pack of menthol cigarettes.
It seems that Simon started smoking again after trying to quit smoking several times.
In 2013, he tweeted that he had “cut down on smoking” and was using an electronic device.
Then, when his son Eric was born in 2014, he tried to give up – but ultimately decided to make his house a “smoke-free zone”.
Then, in October 2017, he was rushed to hospital after fainting and falling at his home in London while going to get milk.
He then vowed to take better care of himself and told Now magazine he was cutting back to two cigarettes a day.
Since then he has followed a mostly vegan diet and has managed to keep 20 pounds in weight.
Simon recently said he was “fitter than ever” after breaking “his spine to pieces” in a horrific bicycle accident last year.
The X Factor boss passed out from the pain of breaking his back when he fell from his electric scooter last August.
But Simon admitted he was “lucky” he broke his back because it meant he “didn’t catch Covid”.
The music mogul said his injury made it impossible for him to travel, but admits it was a “good thing” as it reduced his chances of catching coronavirus.
Simon was left almost paralyzed when he fell off his electric bike at his home in Malibu last year.
The X Factor judge also explained that the damage could have been much more deadly.
Speaking to promote America’s Got Talent, he said, “I was within a millimeter of cutting my back in half, so I consider myself lucky.

Speaking of America’s Got Talent, Simon may have stepped out to the Arts Club to celebrate he is expected to cash in £ 10million with an AGT residency in Las Vegas, according to reports.
The 61-year-old is said to have signed a lucrative deal with the city’s Luxor hotel, which will see the winner of the show and other performers take the stage twice a week.
If it turns out to be a hit with paying bettors, the partnership could last for many years and also see artists from the UK version of the show appear.
A source said the Mirror: “We’re opening America’s Got Talent in Vegas at Luxor this year. And Vegas and Got Talent is where they want to end up. We had a fantastic conversation with MGM who owns the Luxor. And we’ve agreed to do it, so it’s happening this year.
