Exactly one week ago my day started with these pretty and delicious Poached Eggs and Smashed Avocado on Toast, not a bad start, uh? I was at The Hospital Club, a private members club in Covent Garden for an exclusive bloggers’ event with my friend Chiara of Ma Che Davvero.
The Hospital Club is a private club and creative hub in the heart of London that aims to offer a working and networking environment to professionals in the creative industries. The club doesn’t only provide a space, they also discover the best creative talent, and produce, publish and celebrate their work.
The Hospital Club houses seven floors of versatile spaces and facilities including a private members’ club, an award-winning events company, a TV studio, an exhibition gallery, a screening room, a live performance space and is home to many of London’s top cultural events. [Official Website]
I had been to The Hospital Club once many years ago during London Film Festival (my dream when I moved to London was to work in the film industry) so I was very excited to receive an invitation to visit the club again last week. Together with other food and fitness bloggers, I had the pleasure to experience the Hospital Club’s new breakfast menu which is dedicated to health and ‘fuelling creativity’.
The menu looks (and tastes) amazing, featuring a lot of fresh fruit and yoghurt dishes as well as different eggs styles.
Runny poached eggs on toast. Yum!
Fresh fruit juices and smoothies.
Papaya, pomegranate, yoghurt, pumpkin and sunflower seeds.
Avocado on Toast, Poached Egg, Salmon.
Pastries…just because you deserve a sweet treat too!
The Hospital Club is now open to the public for the first time, since they opened 15 hotel rooms that can be booked also by non-members. If you don’t have a membership to one of London’s coolest private members clubs, you can still enjoy their facilities, food and creative atmosphere.
In January 2015 the Club opened its doors to fifteen new bedrooms, sumptuously fitted out with leathers, velvets, warm woods and stained glass by Russell Sage Studios. [Official Website]
We had a tour of the new luxury bedrooms after breakfast and I was blown away by how amazing they look, whether it was the suite or the smallest room of the range. As part of The Hospital Club’s Art programme and its commitment to supporting emerging artists, each bedroom was curated by a different contemporary artist, so they each have a unique feel.
The suite features a lounge room, a large bathroom with bathtub, a bedroom and terrace. At £580 per night it’s also out of my budget sadly… :(
I loved the small room, because it still looked fantastic with all the retro details and furniture (and REN Cosmetics products!) like in the suite, but it comes at a much more affordable price of £180 per night.
Considering this is central London (literally few minutes walk from Covent Garden) and that you get access to the private members club’s facilities, well the price is not bad at all. If I were travelling to London for work, then I would choose The Hospital Club over a soulless corporate hotel. Wouldn’t you?
