PRODUCT: Ludlow Red expertly blends blackberry, violet, black pepper, dandelion, and fig vinegar for a dark and silky sip with your evening meal.
ABOUT: Proteau is a new non-alcoholic botanical aperitif created by John deBary, the former Bar Director for the Momofuku restaurant group, and former bartender for the celebrated neo-speakeasy PDT (Please Don’t Tell). After years of working in some of the world’s most renowned bars and restaurants, John challenged himself to create a non-alcoholic drink that had the same level of culinary intrigue as those with alcohol. Based on his years of research into spirits, amaros, and fortified wines, John scoured NYC’s markets and spent months developing recipes. From this comes Proteau, a harmonic convergence of terrestrial botanicals from all over the globe that present a balanced arrangement of bitter, floral, and fruit notes with every sip.

This Fall, The AllBright, the members’ club that celebrates and champions women, opened its doors to the US sisterhood with the launch of its first stateside club. With style and elegance integrated throughout the clubs, The AllBright West Hollywood is aptly located on LA’s Melrose Place.
Following another round of funding, reaching $18.8M, as well as the success of their two London-based clubs and digital network in the UK, AllBright is set to continue accelerating its growth with the latest US launch, bringing a compelling new proposition to the local market.
The AllBright is the first female member’s club to offer both physical spaces and a complimentary digital learning platform, The AllBright Academy, in the USA. Additionally, as an extension of the physical spaces, AllBright launched the first female-only digital community, AllBright Connect. The always-on platform is a global online sisterhood of like-minded women, that offers support and guidance to all. From London to LA, this unique resource allows women to connect with one another and find inspirational content, job opportunities and courses.
Situated on Melrose Place, The AllBright West Hollywood spreads across three floors, with stand-out, elegant interiors by renowned female designer Brigette Romanek and an incredible array of artworks by female artists, sourced by AllBright’s in-house art curator Beth Greenacre.
AllBright celebrates and champions women to inspire change in one another. The clubs offer a unique environment for women and their guests (be it male or female) to connect, take inspiration from and socialize with one another in a beautiful, welcoming environment. AllBright co-founder, Debbie Wosskow OBE stated, “Since launching AllBright, we have grown rapidly into a destination brand for women from all sectors. AllBright has galvanized a strong and dynamic community of like-minded women and we are excited about growing this community further with the launch of our LA Club as we continue to grow the global footprint of our business.”
“Our launch in LA, signifies a significant landmark for our business. After only 18 months since launching in the UK, the demand from women to bring the AllBright concept stateside has been remarkable. Whilst our physical spaces are renowned as aspirational, inclusive environments for women to enjoy from morning through to late night, our complimentary digital learning and networking platform AllBright Connect truly sets us apart,” AllBright co-founder Anna Jones added.
AllBright was founded in 2017 by Debbie Wosskow OBE, Founder of LoveHomeSwap, Evening Standard Entrepreneur of the Year 2018 and member of the Mayor of London’s Business Advisory Board and Anna Jones, former CEO of Hearst UK (overseeing 24 global brands including Harpers’ Bazaar, Cosmopolitan, and ELLE) and board member of the Creative Industries Federation.
AllBright opened its first AllBright Club in London in March 2018, swiftly followed due to membership demand by the launch of the second Mayfair Club in 2019. Both Clubs provide elegant spaces to host the AllBright community of brilliant, like-minded women, creating a unique environment to connect, create and collaborate. Beautiful, carefully designed spaces for driven, inspiring women with men welcome as guests and encouraged to join in and change the conversation.
Alongside the physical Clubs, AllBright Connect offers access to a complimentary digital learning academy and networking platform. The AllBright Academy offers tailored digital courses aimed at providing women with the tools they need to achieve their goals and build confidence along the way. The AllBright Academy champions an immersive, digital, cohort-driven curriculum with an outstanding line-up of specialist experts with dynamic and inspirational course content. It’s the ideal place for women of every age, every stage, whether a founder or not, to build and grow their careers.
