Fuelling Creativity at The Hospital Club

The other day I asked my fellow bloggers on Twitter what was their favourite time of day to write…I got all sorts of answers from first thing in the morning to 12 o’clock at night! I’m actually very routine about when I write. I wake up, publish a blog post and send it out across my media channels. Then I fuel up on porridge and coffee, reading a few people’s latest blog posts while I have my breakfast and then when I suitably energised at about 11am, I write my latest post.

It’s definitely in the morning when I’m feeling at my most creative as come afternoon I’m ready for a nap ๐Ÿ˜‰

So when I was offered to ‘fuel my creativity’ at a fancy private members club, I eschewed my usual routine and headed down to The Hospital Club for the morning.

The Hospital Club is a private members’ club in the heart of Covent Garden. It’s a fabulous multi-faceted space dedicated to members of creative industries. I’d been invited along with a whole group of bloggers to sample their new healthy breakfast menu and check out their brand new hotel rooms! Funnily enough I’ve been there before, to host a book club back when I was working in publishing and later I returned for a job interview.

The menu was pack with healthy choices including fruits, eggs and a whole range of slow-pressed juices….

 

Plus a few treats too!

 

I know it’s not the most exciting thing in the world but I always start my day with a bowl of porridge. It really fills me up and gets my brain in gear for writing blog posts. I’m actually really fussy about my porridge, as I’ve had some really horrible watery bowls full but this was lovely and creamy without being too watery. Trust me, I’m porridge connoisseur ๐Ÿ˜‰ My favourite is actually the simple one that you can buy from Pret, it’s soooo creamy but it’s less than 3% fat.

Now I’m not going to lie…I did get food envy when I saw what my neighbour was having…

Smoked salmon is my ‘treat’ breakfast but such treats are strictly reserved for birthdays and holidays and as I had a dinner out that night, I stuck to my healthy oats.

Suitably fuelled we were taken on a tour of the new extension in the club which includes fifteen bedrooms.

 

We were first taken to see one of the suites, and it was truly gorgeous, I would have happily moved in there!

 

The club has always maintained a strong association with the art world and each room features the work of different contemporary artists.

 

There was so much detail in the room and I loved the way that the club put a unique on the usual hotel amenities….
With things like the brain power tool kits….

 

And the cheeky erotic mini bar….

 

 

 

We were also told about the daily cocktail trolley at 7pm each evening. The guests can enjoy a their own personal bar man mixing drinks in the room!

We were then guided around some of the other rooms which are available in four categories: small, medium, large and suite.

 

All of which included similar quirky details and state of the art amenities.
Best of all, you don’t even need to be a member to stay and guests will have full access to the club including the screening room, gallery and all the members events.
After a lovely morning spent fuelling my creativity, I trundled off home feeling inspired enough to write this blog post ๐Ÿ™‚

    It looks lovely! That's the only bad thing about working full-time and blogging, you can't attend events that are on during the mornings and daytime ๐Ÿ™

    • Ahhh…that is a shame :(. This one did start at 8.30 so some people popped in before work in order to fuel up!
      Lots of love,
      Angie

  • That looks lovely! I love the lamp with the rope stand. very cool!

    • Isn't it cool and quirky!
      Lots of love,
      Angie

  • Yesss, a fellow porridge girl! It's the BEST breakfast! My colleagues all laugh at me for asking our tea boy (yes, we have a tea boy, this is Doha…) to microwave my bowl of porridge at work in the morning! I love the quirkiness of this hotel – gorgeous!

    • Literally it will keep me full til around 2 in the afternoon!
      Lots of love,
      Angie

  • I totally missed the creative juices, was too busy papping away. My creative juices are definitely coffee. Or wine. But sadly, I can't drink the latter every time I need to write a blog post! Love porridge too ๐Ÿ˜‰ x

    • I yes, I literally can't do anything without coffee. Wine definitely hinders my flow ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Lots of love,
      Angie

  • Yummy, this looks like breakfast / brunch heaven! My favourite time of day to write is also the morning, preferably after about 5 cups of tea ๐Ÿ˜‰ xxx

    • Yep, I'm such a morning person!
      Lots of love,
      Angie

  • Looks super lovely! I don't have a set time to write. Anytime I can grab a few minutes, really! x

    • I reckon a lot of people do that!

  • Delicious! A luxurious breakfast/brunch is the best morning wakeup there is!
    I tend to not be able to string a sentence until 10, and blog the best later in the evening (which can play havoc with the rest of the next day!) I'd love to be a morning person…

    • Lol! My creativity definitely get weaker as the day goes on!
      Lots of love,
      Angie

  • Your own personal bar man in the room, now that is what I call service! I didn't know the Hospital Club had rooms, I love the bakelite phones. I should really write my posts before breakfast, otherwise life tends to get in the way!

    • I know, it's really personal isn't it! I definitely start to feel drained of all inspiration by around 3pm!
      Lots of love,
      Angie

  • Oh my god, those Creative Juices bottles are the cutest thing ever! During the week I'm usually a porridge gal too, though I don't think I'd have been able to resist that smoked salmon bagel…

    • I know, smoked salmon bagel is my favourite comfort food!! I wish I could have kept a bottle of creative juices!
      Lots of love,
      Angie

  • The attention to detail for their members is superb, I love the creative art the rope light is lovely. I wasn't aware that they did rooms but I love the idea of my own bartender. Porridge is a great way to start the day what was good enough for the three Bears is certainly good enough for me Lucy x

    • The rooms are brand new! Oh yes, I definitely have to have my porridge just right ๐Ÿ™‚
      Lots of love,
      Angie

  • This sounds amazing and the rooms are gorgeous! That bathroom is stunning. The black and white is how I want my kitchen but with gold instead of silver!!

    I'm intrigued to see what was in the erotic minibar!

    Lovely photos madame!

    Katie <3

    • It's a beautifully modern bathroom. The erotic minibar was rather rather 50 Shades…
      Lots of love,
      Angie

  • Looks utterly heavenly! I could get used to a personal bar man as well!
