It’s redo time for Hooray Henry’s in West Hollywood, the British party spot run by the h.wood Group (SHOREbar, Bootsy Bellow’s, Blind Dragon). If you’ll recall, Hooray pushed a ‘posh London apartment party’ theme into the old The Beverly space last summer, which included a variety of trinkets, trophies and British mod accents, and sported a semi-private upstairs for those in the know.
Following a none-too-subtle Thanksgiving week drop, the new party spot has truncated its name (it’s HENRY’S only now) and rethought the overall concept.
Part of the reason for the switcheroo has to do with h.wood Group’s newish partnership with Hakkasan, which is of course known for creating lavish, curated nightlife experiences in their own right.
Now that the dynamic duo is running smoothly, they both thought it proper to drop the overtly British theme in favor of a more nourish black and white vibe. Shining black booths play the middle between low white pergolas and wood flooring, while a private art exhibit room offers a bit of colorful flash along with its exclusivity.
Of course, the usual HENRY’S party scene still applies, which means plenty of bottle service and high-end DJs working one end of the room. Along with the upcoming arrival of Blind Dragon, h.wood continues its stranglehold on the West Hollywood club/lounge scene, though this time with a bit of a revamp.
HENRY’S soft-opened on Wednesday, November 26.
