A new membership club is headed towards Melrose Place, adding to the number of private clubs popping up in Los Angeles.
AllBright West Hollywood, a private club geared towards working women, is planning on opening up a 9,000-square-foot location in West Hollywood, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Designed by Brigette Romanek, the members club will have dining spaces, a rooftop deck and beauty services. It will be women’s-only, but will allow men to enter the premises. (That’s unlike the Wing, a co-working spot that is currently under investigation for refusing to allow men inside.)
AllBright was founded by Anna Jones and Debbie Wosskow in London. They launched their first club in the fashionable Bloomsbury district there in March, and plan on opening a second location in Mayfair soon.
Membership at the club will cost $2,100 annually, with a $300 initiation fee. For women 29 and under, the fee drops to $1,100 per year.
It is scheduled to open sometime next summer.
AllBright is the latest private club to step onto the crowded scene in L.A.
Hotelier Jeff Klein is planning on opening the San Vicente Bungalows later this year. Invitation-only membership there will cost $4,200 annually for folks over 35. Nearby, a London-based firm has teamed up with VE Equities to develop the Arts Club on the Sunset Strip. Voters will get to decide on the final fate of the contested project in a March election.
There is also a Soho House in the neighborhood. The club, also on Sunset Boulevard, charges $2,800 annually for access to all its locations around the world. [HR] – Natalie Hoberman
