When my friend Giulia invited me for a bloggers breakfast at The Hospital Club, I was really happy. The club, located in the heart of London – just a few steps away from Covent Garden – it’s one of the most exclusive in the city, with its members coming mainly from the creative and artistic industry. The club doesn’t only provide a working space but encourages, promote and sometimes even produces or showcases the work of the members. In its seven floors you can even find a TV studio, a screening room and a live performance space.
I had been there before for the Olympics opening ceremony – cheering up the ‘parachuting Queen’ – and I was more than happy to come back to have a taste of their amaaa(feel free to add ‘a’s)zing breakfast menu.
As I arrived late I unfortunately missed the juices and pastries heaven that you can see on Giulia’s post, while I chose from the menu some eggs on toast with spinach and a creamy soya cappuccino. I know they’re very ‘basic’ things, but it’s from the basics that you can judge a restaurant. The eggs were perfectly poached and the spinach were deliciously buttery.
We then had a tour of some of the new rooms, recently launched and available for the first time also to non-members. The style of the rooms is beyond cool.
If the suites aren’t affordable for anyone, the smallest rooms are definitely a deal, with some special price starting from just 120 pounds per night (not far from what you spend in a random B&b in Central London). The great thing is, by staying in one of these amazingly cool and super-central rooms you have also access to all the facilities of the club. Pretty cool, huh?
The club promotes an art programme to support emerging artists, so each bedroom is curated by a different contemporary artist. The style is always super cool and slightly 70s, but the feel of each room is totally unique. I definitely fell in love with the one above.
If I were you, next time you come to London I’d remember to have a look at The Hospital Club website. The next big artist may be showcasing upstairs.
