Food hygiene ratings[edit]

In 2014, the club received a zero rating for food hygiene after an inspection found mouse droppings in kitchens prompting worries of cross-contamination.[2][3]

In 2015, The Hospital Club received a five star rating by the Foods Standard Agency.[4]

History of the building[edit]

As its name suggests, for many years the building was home to St Paul's Hospital, first established in 1749.

  • 1749 — British Lying-In Hospital opened at 24 Endell Street[5]
  • 1913 — British Lying-In Hospital closed[5]
  • 1923 — St Paul's Hospital moves from Red Lion Square to 24 Endell Street[6]
  • 1992 — St Paul's Hospital closed[6]
  • 1996 — Building purchased by Paul Allen, planning submitted. Local objections to development mean the project stalls for a number of years while a compromise with residents is worked out[1]
  • 2004 — Private members' club, restaurant and recording studio open[7]
