The proposed Quay Club is being launched by developer Gary Landesberg and the Waney family – also the owners behind popular hot spot The Arts Club, in Mayfair. The building will be made from aluminium and house a bar, restaurant, private dining area, members’ lounges and guest accommodation, a gym, treatment studio and open terrace overlooking Middle Dock. The top floor features an open roof terrace.
Adamson Associates, the architects behind the Quay Club have started that: “The vision for the club is to be globally the most desirable and inspirational private members’ club for the urban professional. Upon the successful launch, the aim is to create sister clubs in the key financial centres of the world — with Dubai, New York, Singapore and Shanghai shortlisted.” If planning permission is granted you can expect the club to open, in early 2018.
The owners, are also intending to build a West Coast outpost of Mayfair's Arts Club. The 132,000-square-foot nine-storey building (designed by architectural firm Gensler) will (if planning to granted) replace the landmark Hustler Hollywood store on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles. The site will host a creative office space and a gallery on its first four floors, with the remaining upper floors devoted to the club. The fifth floor will contain a dining terrace, screening room and a gym; the sixth floor would house 15 guest rooms for members; the seventh floor would host an eatery, another terrace, and a lounge for members. On the eighth floor, there will be a “Japanese/Latino” restaurant. The club will also feature a glamorous rooftop, with a pool and yeet another terrace and a private helipad. It will also offer an underground parking garage with room for 220 cars, which can be accessed from Hilldale Avenue.
