The Hospital Club London is a private members club for people in the creative industries. It houses a television studio, screening room, live performance space, restaurant, lounges and gallery over seven floors. The club is at 24 Endell Street, Covent Garden, London on the site of an 18th-century hospital.
The Hospital Club London was founded by Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen through his investment company Vulcan Inc. and musician David A. Stewart (formerly of the band Eurythmics), producer and Founder of Weapons of Mass Entertainment.
As its name suggests, for many years the building was home to St Paul's Hospital, first established in 1749.
In 2014, the club received a zero rating for food hygiene after an inspection found mouse droppings in kitchens, prompting worries of cross-contamination.
In 2015, The Hospital Club received a five-star rating by the Foods Standard Agency.
The venue's 2,700 square feet (250 m2) television studio is located two floors below ground level, and when it opened in 2003 was the first high-definition television studio in the UK. A grid height of 4.4 metres (14 ft) and a size of 61 feet x 44 feet, roughly equivalent to that of Television Centre's TC2, means it is well used for programme production.
The studio can accommodate an audience of approximately 200 people sitting or standing. It was recently upgraded, with particular focus on the sound production room which was upgraded in conjunction with Solid State Logic.
