This California Members-Only Club Is An Artful Retreat

A members-only social club, The Park Club California, has opened in Costa Mesa on the garden level of Center Tower, joining such vibrant landmarks as the Segerstrom Center for the Arts and South Coast Repertory, as well as the Orange County Museum of Art and South Coast Plaza.

The club was designed by Venice-based interiors firm Studio Collective, whose goal was to “embody the vibrancy of the local art scene,” says the firm’s partner and design director, Adam Goldstein. “Our mission was to weave the rich cultural fabric of the club’s surroundings into its DNA.”

The entrance will feature exhibitions of California artists, while the interiors offer a welcoming retreat with custom furnishings in a natural palette. Along with the Monet Restaurant, helmed by Chef Daniel Hohng, and the Palm Bar, eight unique spaces can host private meetings and special events.

The club’s programs will include pre- and post-theater gatherings, supper club concerts, art receptions, culinary tastings and wine dinners.
