Good news for beautiful people who can already get into any place they want. Gwyneth Paltrow is backing a new hot spot in Los Angeles that will offer some public space as well as an area for club members only.
The report states that architecture firm Gensler is providing designs for the 132,000-square-foot building that is being backed by the same actress seen in such movies as “Shakespeare in Love” and the “Iron Man” franchise.
As noted, the designs need to be approved, so this is for the moment a building based solely in optimism and possibility.
However, you only need take a look at the European chapter of the club that will welcome Los Angeles elite: London’s Art Club.
Membership in that particular London haunt ranges from £1000 a year with a £1000 joining fee to a “Full Membership” that goes for £2000 with a £2000 joining fee.
And this very site will see something of a west coast chapter stick ever so gingerly into the L.A. skyline.
However, even if you have the money you still need to be invited into the club, according to Fox News. So it’s kind of like a super, secret tree house that only the cool kids get to access.
Thanks for bringing up bad childhood memories, Paltrow.
Now that same kind of exclusivity comes to Hollywood, sitting in the same space that welcomed so many with sexual curiosities into the Hustler store.
Once completed, there will be a mix of space for those with member’s access as well as those people who walk the streets anonymously.
The report states that the massive building will also have retail space for those regular humanoids with only a passing interest in arts, literature and the finer things in life.
Founded in 1863, the Art’s Club’s website explains the impetus behind the private affair: “This Club is instituted for the purpose of facilitating the social intercourse of those connected with, or interested in Art, Literature or Science.”
Now the club might be for members, but you can live vicariously through its Twitter feed:
That’s right. Sometimes Luther himself shows up to DJ.
Someday in the future, if all goes according to plan, you can walk down Sunset, look up at the immediate skyline and wonder what all the Hollywood elites are up to.
Like any other night, really.
