The Founders

The Founders

h Club was founded by Paul Allen and Dave Stewart. The story goes that Paul and Dave were having a drink in Covent Garden one night when they spotted a boarded-up building, the former St Paul’s Hospital. They hatched a plan to revive the building and transform it into a hub of creativity – full of people, ideas, music and life – and in 2004, The Hospital Club was born.

Now in its second decade, the Club has gone from strength to strength, with the creation of the new charitable h Club Foundation, its commitment to sustainability, the h Club 100 awards, the Club Art programme and much more.

Full Time Receptionist Chef de Partie Cocktail Bartender Lounge & Restaurant Waiting Staff

Paul G Allen

Paul Allen has a question. And if you ever meet him, you’ll hear him ask it more than once: What should exist?

What if we don’t have to accept the world as it is? What if there is more to know? What if we played the long game for the future, instead of pursuing short-term rewards?

Asking “what should exist?” is Paul Allen’s world. It was the question he asked as a sci-fi and music-loving kid growing up in the outskirts of Seattle, designing plans for a rocket to take him to Mars. It was what guided him as the co-founder and idea broker for Microsoft, the company that set off the personal computing revolution. And it’s what has led him to spearheading a range of efforts from commercial space travel to brain science research to artificial intelligence breakthroughs. Every direction he pursues starts from the very same place—a relentless belief in possibility and the desire to open up the future.

It is this guiding principle that spurred him into creating The Hospital Club.  He wanted to create a space that would harness and support the creative process; that would become a home from home for others who also ask the question: What should exist?

Through his relentless pursuit for innovation, Paul has made his mark across the world. His passion, curiosity, energy and drive have transformed the way we live, learn and do business. He is one of America’s top philanthropists, a bestselling author and producer of award-winning films and  documentaries..
