The Los Angeles Athletic Club (LAAC), the City’s first private club, announces the completion of phase two of its highly-anticipated $10 million-dollar renovation. The Club is set to appeal to a new wave of downtown denizens by merging its rich history with a contemporary new look. On May 15, LAAC unveiled their world-class women’s locker rooms. LAAC is also debuting five new meeting rooms on the fourth floor by renowned interior designer Tracy Beckmann.
The project represents a major upgrade in the club’s 138-year history and focuses on the fourth, fifth and sixth floors of the 12-story building, which encompasses athletic, social, and meeting spaces, along with three floors of hotel rooms. By year’s end, the club will be ready to unveil the final round of renovations to the sixth floor, including a unisex spa area and treatment rooms with a multi-purpose salt room that offers yoga, meditation and halo therapy. There will also be a barber shop, nail salon and the historic poolside lounge and dining area re-imagined as the Plunge Cafe.
