Espy Sports Luxury Lounge
This past Tuesday, July 12th I was invited to James Goldsteins home for the coveted Espy Sports Luxury Lounge hosted by Talent Resource Group. If you don’t know who Mr. Goldstein is let me introduce you to man, the legend, Mr. Goldstein. James Goldstein — the enigmatic art collector, fashion world fixture and NBA “superfan” — agreed earlier this year to donate his historic $40 million home to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Talent Resources Sports founder David Spencer’s hosting the ESPYs party at the house that includes artworks by James Turrell, Ed Ruscha and Kenny Scharf.
"Designed in 1961 by the architect John Lautner, the house is one of Los Angeles’s most beloved landmarks: it served as a backdrop for films (“The Big Lebowski,” “Charlie’s Angels”), countless fashion shoots (Vanity Fair, Vogue, Dior) and splashy parties (Rihanna’s 27th birthday). Goldstein bought the residence in 1972, working with Lautner and others to renovate it over the years, adding a rooftop tennis court next door and his own nightclub underneath, the appropriately titled Club James. His famous home, which has appeared in films such as “The Big Lebowski” and “Charlie’s Angels: Full Throttle,” has also played host to many private parties and photo shoots over the years since he purchased it in 1972. The space features a lush tropical garden, tennis court (Maria Sharapova shot her last ad for Tag Heuer here; that image now hangs in the balance with her contract), entertainment complex and — most notably — a James Turrell skyspace".

Beneath the most beautiful tennis court in the city is a full private nightclub called Club James, featuring retractable glass walls, floor-to-ceiling TVs, a DJ booth, and outdoor bar and kitchen.
