Famed British club manager Robin Birley plans to open a nightclub and hotel at 14-16 East 16th Street, which the Reuben brothers recently acquired.

The Institute for Family Health sold the 37,000-square-foot medical office building near Union Square for $39.5 million earlier this month, as The Real Deal reported. Billionaires David and Simon Reuben, who are the landlords of Birley’s nightclub 5HS in London, are the buyers, according to the New York Post.

5HS is one of London’s best known clubs and reportedly the scene of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s first date. The New York establishment will look different.

“It’s not an outpost of 5 Hertford Street,” a source told the Post. “Any club that Robin opens in New York will be substantially different.”

Birley, son of socialite Annabel Goldsmith and nightclub entrepreneur Mark Birley, also founded a chain of U.K. sandwich shops. He was mauled by a tiger in his friend’s private zoo at age 11, leaving his face disfigured. [NYP]Konrad Putzier
