The show opened with Dave Stewart (pictured) (co-owner of the Hospital Club) recounting the story of how he and his friend Paul Allen (co-founder of Microsoft) explored a derelict hospital in Covent Garden, decided to buy it and then jumped through countless hurdles to open it as a hub for creativity.
