Inside the LA Athletic Club's Secret Celebrity Blue Room, Now Remodeled and Reopened

Renovations on the fifth and sixth floor spa areas are still in progress (salt cave, anyone?) at the historic Los Angeles Athletic Club, but the club is now unveiling its formerly secret Blue Room, a classy, reinvigorated lounge area with its own cocktail bar on the fourth floor.

Frank Baum, and Walt Disney, a release from LAAC says.
