HKS to transform Redbury Hollywood into creative studio space

The Redbury Hollywood in California will be transformed into a collaborative space for creative, dubbed as h.Club LA.

London’s Hospital Club will open its second outpost in Los Angeles early next year. The Redbury Hollywood in California will be turned into a collaborative space for creative, dubbed as h.Club LA. HKS Hospitality Group was selected as the project's architect.

The Hospital Club was established in 2004 by Paul Allen, Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist, and musician Dave Stewart.

Planned for the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street, the renovated hotel will have similar elements to The Club’s London property, while incorporating locally-inspired details. Referencing the Modern Grand Tour of Europe, h.Club LA will have five floors of spaces, three dining areas and a rooftop restaurant overlooking Hollywood. That rooftop venue will lead to a desert garden inspired by those of late English film director Derek Jarman.

Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

The hotel will also have an outdoor pool deck, a tea room, several bars, gym and wellness facilities, co-working spaces, a music studio, a screening room and live performance space. Works by local and international artists from the h.Club Art Program will be curated for the property’s 36 bedrooms, as well as the main club spaces.

The original Hospital Club is housed within a converted 18th-century hospital in Covent Garden, which is the source of the project’s name.

Allen acquired the Redbury for $41 million last June, with the 57-key hotel immediately closing to begin its more than $10-million makeover. The hotel’s ground floor restaurant, Cleo, will remain following renovations.
