The Redbury Hotel will be renovated and transformed into h. Club LA, an extension of London’s The Hospital Club. The property will offer 36 bedrooms, three dining venues with multiple bars, rooftop restaurant, outdoor pool, tea room, music studio, screening room and space for live performances.
The Redbury Hotel in Los Angeles is set to become a members-only club aimed at the creative class, Curbed LA reported.
The building will be renovated and will open in early 2018 as h. Club LA, the “debut” extension of London’s The Hospital Club, “giving members access to an international network of creatives,” the club said in an announcement. The hotel’s groundfloor restaurant Cleo is staying put, Curbed reported.
H. Club in Hollywood will offer 36 hotel-style bedrooms available to club members and the public. Hotel guests will get a temporary membership to the club, and have access to all the member amenities:
- three options for food with “sustainable and locally sourced ingredients”
- a rooftop restaurant
- multiple bars
- an outdoor pool
- a tea room
- coworking space
- a music studio
- a screening room
- space for live performances (this one can be enjoyed by guests and members)
The Hospital Club was co-founded in 2004 by Paul Allen, a co-founder of Microsoft. (The London Club’s original location is housed in the former St. Paul’s Hospital in Covent Garden, hence the name.) In June 2016, a company owned by Allen bought the Redbury for $41 million, Curbed reported.
The club, catering to creatives with money, will be situated in the heart of Hollywood, where companies including Netflix and Viacom have set up shop, Curbed reported.
“Big names are moving into the area. I have been astonished by the level of development. It’s like it’s on the cusp of something exciting that is about to explode and we want to be part of that,” a rep for the Hospital Club told the Los Angeles Times. The Redbury will close in July, the Times reported.
If that timeline sticks, h. Club LA will open ahead of another members-only club poised to open in Los Angeles: Soho Warehouse, the Arts District outpost of Soho House, Curbed reported.
