Actress To Open Private Club in Venice

Club membership will cost $2,000 a year.

Anjelica Huston will convert her Venice home into a private social club, the New York Post reported on Monday.

The actress, best known for her roles in Prizzi’s Honor and the Addams Family, listed her 13,775-square-foot Venice home in September of 2010 for $18 million. The home has not sold, and Huston announced she will turn it into private club called the Venice Social Club. It will charge people $2,000 a year for membership, which will include a farm-to-table restaurant, a gallery, screening room and cultural programs, according to the New York Post

The home was built in 1994 by her Huston’s late husband Robert Graham. The home is comprised of two buildings, a three-bedroom home and an artist building. Both structures have high ceilings and ample lighting, and there is a lap pool with abundant outdoor seating for potential club guests. 

The home is located on Windward Avenue between Pacific Avenue and Speedway.

Yea THAT is exactly what Venice needs - more Hipsters that care more about themselves then genuine art.

Well I guess it's first they care for themselves, THEN art. Is the order so important?

Another bad idea in a history of bad ideas on that poor property. This secondary attempt to recoup her investment will also fail and very probably before they finish a club logo design. This embarrassment on historic Windward has only one destiny; donation to the City with a tax write-off. It may yet serve the arts but on a non-profit basis. Best solution? Parking structure.

I walked by this on Saturday and the side entrance was open and I peeked in. I knew something was up. I think she should turn it into a members only surf hostel. Cheap digs for pro surfers. No Jews allowed! Ha.
