Archive Seeds and The Alchemist warm up The Astor Club LA’s grand opening
If you had doubts about the state of cannabis culture in 2024, The Astor Club’s bicoastal launch from New York to LA will put them to rest.
The dankest club in high society was packed for its grand opening in Los Angeles on January 13. The private, members-only cannabis lounge made a name for itself in lower Manhattan by appealing to every type of cannabis connoisseur—unique genetics, pop-up brand activations with limited drops, and unforgettable vibes. And now, the cannabis community in LA has a new safe, sociable smoking haven.

On the evening of the grand opening, cannabis from Wonderbrett and tunes by The Alchemist smoked out the two-story space. Infused soda company Mary Jones took over the rooftop with an offering of new, bubbling flavors.
Astor Club members gain access to coveted cultivars and hard-to-find weed offerings year-round. Depending on the seas, rare finds include hash from Uncle’s Farm, the inventor of piatella, Moonbow from Archive, and even The Ten Co.’s coveted Zushi lineup.
The space is co-owned by the mainstay cannabis brand Viola, founded in 2011 by former NBA player Al Harrington. Where else besides The Astor Club LA can stoners shoot hoops on a working basketball court? Celebrity sightings abound at both New York and LA locales of The Astor Club.
