In 2002, Paul G. Allen reopened the doors of the old St. Paul's Hospital in London's celebrated Covent Garden neighborhood, revealing a new state-of-the-art, 60,000 square foot creative hub. The Hospital Club is now one of London's most important creative communities, providing a professional and social hub to those working in the film, television, music, advertising, contemporary art and design, publishing and journalism, interactive media, theatre and fashion industries.
The Hospital Club houses a high-definition television studio, music recording facilities, art gallery, screening room, meeting and private dining rooms, and a private members' club with cocktail bars and an excellent restaurant.
The Hospital Club is a creative hub offering the creative community the environment and facilities they need to create, connect and collaborate. Recent initiatives to create opportunities, offer guidance and recognise achievements include the hClub100, the Creatives in Residence program and partnerships with organisations ranging from the British Film Institute to the Design Museum, and from BAFTA to the British Fashion Council. The Hospital Group Ltd. represents the first investment by Paul Allen in the UK.
