Rumors abound that San Vicente Bungalows may open in Santa Monica, Calif. Hotelier Jeff Klein declined to comment, but had previously confirmed that the team was targeting a Santa Monica opening sometime in 2023, with a New York location set to follow in two years.
Hotelier Jeff Klein plans to expand San Vicente Bungalows, a members-only club, with Santa Monica, Calif. as the next location, the Santa Monica Mirror reported. Gabé Doppelt, the former maître d’ at Sunset Tower in West Hollywood, Calif., is joining the team to help navigate the launch of the new locations.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, sources close to the matter suggest that Klein and his team are in the process of finalizing an address for the new Westside location, with plans for San Vicente Bungalows to take over the third floor and rooftop of a building.
When contacted for comment by the Hollywood Reporter, a representative for San Vicente Bungalows and Klein declined to provide any further details about the planned expansion. However, in a previous interview with the outlet, Klein had confirmed that the team was targeting a Santa Monica opening sometime in 2023, with a New York outpost set to follow in two years, the Mirror reported.
Doppelt, who has previously worked as a high-profile editor for publications such as Vogue and The Daily Beast, is expected to help spearhead membership at all of the new San Vicente Bungalows locations before eventually moving back to New York, the Mirror reported.
San Vicente Bungalows is a private members-only club owned by hotelier Klein, known for its exclusivity and luxurious amenities, the Mirror reported. Founded in 2018, the club is named after the street where it is located in West Hollywood. The original property was a collection of bungalows built in the 1920s, which were transformed into a chic, members-only retreat following a $50 million renovation.
The club offers its members access to a wide range of facilities, including a restaurant, bar, pool, and garden, as well as private event spaces for meetings, parties, and special occasions, the Mirror reported.
Membership to San Vicente Bungalows is highly sought after, with a strict vetting process, the Mirror reported. The club’s membership reportedly includes a who’s who of Hollywood elite, including A-list celebrities, top executives, and other industry power players.
