The Hospital Club in London’s Covent Garden is the only private members’ club designed specifically for those in creative industries, and as a member since 2009, it’s been my ‘home from home’ for many years.
Founded by musician Dave Stewart, of Eurythmics fame, and Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft, the Hospital Club opened in 2004, as a hub where creative types could create, connect, and collaborate. Spread over seven floors with stunning interiors including cocktail bars, lounges, a restaurant, 36-seater cinema, TV studio, art gallery, and 15 extraordinary bedrooms, it caters for creative professionals who are looking for something super cool, friendly and collaborative.
As well as being London’s hippest private members’ club, it’s also the perfect space for couples looking for somewhere really stylish and different for their wedding venue.
It boasts a range of versatile spaces each with its own unique style and flavour, as well as a team of chefs and mixologists who can tailor-make and prepare the perfect menu (kosher or just Jewish-friendly!) whatever your theme and budget.
A couple of months ago in January 2015, fifteen sumptuous bedrooms were added to the mix which means that for the first time ever the Hospital Club is opening it’s doors to non-members. The rooms are luxuriously appointed with leathers, velvets, sumptuous woods and jaw-dropping works of contemporary art, and I’m giving one lucky reader and their companion the chance to sneak in, party hard, and crash out in comfort in the Hospital Club’s top suite, complete with dinner in the club restaurant, and breakfast the following morning.
The suite (a.k.a. the crash pad of your dreams) comes complete with a private terrace, separate lounge area, erotic minibar by Holloway Smith Noir, brain power tool kits by the School of Life, insider guides to London, and a 7pm cocktail trolley with your own personal bartender!
For the duration of your stay, you’ll also be able to make full use of all member privileges including the club’s 3D cinema, pool room, cocktails bars, and the enviable schedule of member events.
