While private member clubs are popping up across the country (Chateau Marmont, Zero Bond, Casa Cipriani, among them), one of Los Angeles’ newer ones, The Britely, brings some maximalism to the picture. Designed by Swedish architect Martin Brudnizki (responsible for the Instagram famous pink powder room at Annabel’s in London), the social club – which sits atop the Pendry West Hollywood hotel on Sunset Boulevard – is full of feathers ostrich, pastel roses and Art Deco gilding.
“To bend the spirit of old Hollywood,” says Brudnizki, “we used materials such as the antique mirror, high-gloss woodwork, monochrome marble and brass while statement chandeliers recall the sets of productions and emblematic shows. By mixing these details with navy blue and dusty pink color palettes, we have succeeded in creating spaces that overlap the old and the new in a unique way.
It is “a fusion of brilliant ideas, luminous design and luminous palettes”, declares general manager Estelle Lacroix. “A luxury destination with dynamic spaces for productivity, well-being and celebration, The Britely offers the best of Los Angeles: diverse thinking, great cuisine, relaxed yet stylish comfort, and a bit of fun.”
With access to of them Restaurants Wolfgang Puck, The Britely also offers a rooftop pool, gym, spa, screening room and, of course, bowling alley. And as COVID restrictions disappear, there will be extensive cultural programming with events such as movie screenings, comedy nights, music productions, conversations, and more. The property’s amenities combined with its festive design deliver the perfect dose of golden age glamor for members at the perfect time.
