Forget Obamacare, call off Dr House, London’s hit private members club The Hospital Club is coming to Los Angeles. Founded in 2004 by philanthropist and Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen in a once-derelict hospital in Covent Garden, the club is a dedicated space for artists, entrepreneurs and innovators to connect, create and collaborate.
When it arrives in the home of nip-and-tucks, H.Club LA will evoke the experience of its London inspiration, albeit with a distinctly American flavour. Taking the theme of a Modern Grand Tour of Europe the 36 bedroom club will be set over five floors of spaces designed to host and showcase creativity. They’ve designed three restaurants featuring sustainable and locally sourced menus and a spectacular rooftop restaurant with Hollywood views and a desert garden inspired by the English gardens of film maker Derek Jarman. It will feature an outdoor pool deck, a tea room, bars, gym and wellness facilities in addition to a music studio, screening room and live performance space as well as creative co-working areas for members and guests to enjoy.
Occupying the site of The Redbury on the corner of Hollywood and Vine, the club will be at the centre of Hollywood and will showcase the best of London and LA art and culture and aiming to build a global network of artists across these two capitals of culture.
