Brody House is a renowned boho-chic arts hotel and boutique accommodation that was established in 2009 in Budapest, Hungary by William Clothier and Peter Grundberg who co-founded BrodyLand - a creative concept that encompasses several creative hospitality venues in Budapest as well as an international membership community.

The Brody membership is an active global community of positive and, typically, creative, innovative or artistic people. The Club is affiliated with 17 private arts and social clubs around the world including The Groucho Club in London, The Hospital Club in London, The Spoke Club in Toronto.

Under Soviet rule and communism, private members clubs all but disappeared in Budapest, but the establishment of the likes of Brody House marks the return of such establishments in the region. Brody House has attracted considerable media attention for its creative design, bohemian club life style and famous and noteworthy arts, media, music and film visitors and members. It is featured in numerous music videos including: ‘Down’ by Balazs Feher and ‘Fuzzy Fuzzy’ which was produced by Oasis producer Owen Morris.

Brody House is named after Hungarian writer Sandor Brody. Brody House was formerly an annex to the Hungarian Parliament located next door before it was relocated in 1896 to its current location on the banks of the Danube (Hungarian Parliament Building). Since the building housed the pioneering gynaecologist Dr Tauffer, the Hungarian prime minister Miklos Kallay and other noteworthy city mayors as well as illustrious writers, musicians, film and music producers.
