Move over, Soho House. There’s a new British club in town, and it’s looking a lot like WeWork for the crème de la crème of the creative arts.

Paul Allen, the co-founder of Microsoft, will transform his Redbury Hotel in Hollywood into the first U.S. outpost of his London social club, Hospital Club, or the h.Club. 

He paid $41 million for the Vine Street property and will pour more than $10 million into its redevelopment, the Los Angeles Times reported. It will reopen in April 2018, and will feature a screening room, recording studio, performance space, and lounges.

Members will be able to network and collaborate on creative projects, according to Hospital Club’s chief executive, Sue Walter. There will also be a rooftop restaurant with a desert garden and two addition dining spaces, as well as a swimming pool and a gym.

The hotel portion of the Redbury will be reduced to 36 rooms from the current 57. It will close in July for renovations. [LAT]Cathaleen Chen
