What a view. Our Los Angeles Clubhouse is now open.
Exciting news. We’ve just opened a brand new Virgin Atlantic Clubhouse at Los Angeles International Airport, Terminal 2.
After 18 months of planning and development, we now have the perfect space for customers to relax, take in the views and indulge in delicious food and drink before they fly, welcomed by our new Clubhouse Manager Tiina Sauri.
Our new Clubhouse puts a distinctly Southern Californian spin on the warmth and individuality Virgin Atlantic is known for. Just like our award winning JFK and Newark Clubhouses, New York-based Slade Architecture (sladearch.com) designed it in collaboration with our in house design team.
The LA Clubhouse reflects the city’s warm sunsets, laid back lifestyle, mountain backdrops, flowing surf and sculpted surfaces. From the reception area, the calm, cleansing environment envelops you, sheltering you from airport bustle. Then you get a peek of the lounge area as the sculpted Corian®* and copper ‘flow wall’ guides you intuitively inside.
This flow wall then creates a diagonal backdrop to continuous views of aircraft, runways, the iconic LAX Theme Building, Hollywood hills, Hollywood sign and mountains beyond.
We’ve commissioned unique art pieces to anchor two ends of the triangular lounge space. In the east corner, digital media artist Diana Reichenbach has created a beautiful immersive media installation, then in the northern area you’ll find a hand drawn wall by British artist, Vic Lee. “My work is a mix of typography, passion, charm and beautification. I call it wall tattoos. Bespoke expressions to illuminate and elevate, smile and lose yourself in.”
The design in detail
The flow wall also defines the lounge areas, furnished to offer our customers different seating and socialising options:
· Rear Window is what we call the north glass-lined corner, where you’ll find custom-designed sculpted couches: relaxed seating with a view.
· At Eat Drink Man Woman, the flow wall forms the copper lined bar, which features natural Californian produce and the iconic Virgin Atlantic bar service. Seating here ranges from classic Walter Knoll Turtle chairs to a surfboard-inspired counter, sculpted from layers of bamboo.
· At the apex of the space, bamboo-lined walls and ceilings with leather banquets frame the Diana Reichenbach installation, forming a warm, intimate getaway. It’s the perfect place to enjoy a delicious, fresh, California-inspired meal, created with Hinoki & the Bird, one of LA’s most innovative restaurants.
We're so excited to have opened our Clubhouse doors and look forward to welcoming passengers into our new space.
The very first Virgin Hotel in Chicago was designed to create a sweeping sense of innovation, style and home. Guided by Virgin’s culture of fairness and personalized treatment, this is more than a lifestyle hotel – it’s an entirely new way to stay over.
We are pleased to annouce our newest partner, Rocketmiles, a hotel booking website and app that awards 500 to 5,000 Flying Club miles per night, for stays at thousands of properties worldwide. And as a welcome offer, you'll receive 3,000 bonus miles on your first booking with Rocketmiles.
