The Aster, a chic new Hollywood private members club with a boutique hotel vibe, has just opened on Hollywood and Vine

Created by boutique hospitality group, Salt Hotels, this adults-only six-Storey members club and hotel can be found on the iconic Vine Street and Hollywood Boulevard intersection, and features an expansive range of amenities for guests.

There’s a 35-seat screening room, a recording studio, pool, cabaret room, various lounges, gyms, salon and dedicated workspaces. It’s currently in soft launch before a full opening in September.

Named after the native Aster flower which blooms across Los Angeles, the property offers 35 all-suite bedrooms with old-Hollywood-inspired interior decor. Each suite features separate seating and dining areas with signature white oak, 40-inch tables.

In September 2022, the Lemon Grove rooftop opens with indoor-outdoor restaurant, bar and garden, under the direction of award-winning celebrity chef, Chef Marcel Vigneron.  

Hotel suites are available for anyone to book; hotel guests become temporary club members with access to all amenities and events during their stay.

Salt Hotels co-founders David Bowd and Kevin O’Shea say there is no set criteria for membership; their vision is  ‘to welcome a melting pot of personalities from different backgrounds and industries.’

There are no check-in times or restrictive rules regarding laptop or phone usage. Members are invited to work, play, and stay, and take advantage of the club’s extensive event schedule.  

In celebration of The Aster’s launch, Hollywood-born visual artist, Tristan Eaton, has been commissioned to create an imposing mural on the south side of the building. Using the exterior of the members’ club and hotel as a canvas, Eaton installation will pay tribute to the history of Hollywood and its subculture as its foundation, featuring portraits of Sidney Poitier and Judy Garland.

Upon entry, The Aster will welcome visitors with an inviting lobby space complete with grandiose staircase that leads to the decadent Aster Park, with the outdoor pool deck and the indoor lounge space.

Interior decor hints of Hollywood glamour with hues of pink and large palm trees, while the Hollywood Deck offers unobstructed views of the Capitol Records building and Hollywood sign.

“The design is inspired by California, we want to give our members and guests an authentic sense of place whilst offering a calm oasis in the centre of Hollywood to socialise and conduct business. Our sweeping rooftop is inspired by the lemon groves that once dotted the landscape before the development of Hollywood, an agrarian escape from the hustle and bustle of LA.” explains co-founder Kevin O’Shea.

The fifth floor of The Aster is home to The Club Room, open 24 hours per day with an ongoing food and beverage service under the direction of Chef Marcel Vigneron, and the Cabaret Room.  

Membership rates for The Aster $3,600 annually. Rooms rates are from $500 per night. For reservations at The Aster click here.
