Atlanta-based private membership club, business incubator, and think tank The Gathering Spot is expanding to Los Angeles having built up approximately 5,000 members of entrepreneurs and creators. The Gathering Spot Co-founder Ryan Wilson told What Now Los Angeles Monday that the club’s first L.A. location will open at 5211 W Adams Boulevard by the second quarter of 2021.
Located in the West Adams neighborhood, the 19,000-square-foot property was acquired with a 12-year lease, starting in March 2021.
There are plans for an in-house restaurant, but the concept has not yet been finalized, though it will be operated by the club itself.
Wilson and T.K. Petersen founded The Gathering Spot in Atlanta, Georgia in 2016. Based at 384 Northyards Boulevard NW, the price of membership costs $2,000. No prices have been set yet for the L.A. outpost.
In August 2015, sister site What Now Atlanta reported that the founders of The Gathering Spot filed a building permit application for the build-out of a 21,291-square-foot project in Atlanta’s The Northyards development, at 384 Northyards Boulevard. Later that year, in December, the members-only club announced a partnership with Atlanta restauranteur Doug Foley to open WYE Restaurant and Bar.
A similar concept, but for female entrepreneurs only, called Chief, is opening its forthcoming L.A. outpost soon.
