Imagine an aristocratic manner in London being taken over when the parents aren’t home, that is exactly what you will feel once inside the chic establishment. This has been the type of ‘live-animation meets raw fairy-tale’ concept that John Sofio, of Built Inc., has mastered. John Terzain of h.wood.group is the visionary, curator, and owner of Hooray Henry’s, and Sofio has designed and brought Terzain’s concept to life.

"H.wood.group sets themselves apart from other hospitality/nightlife “clubs” by creating more of a concept lounge” says Terzain. “We create moments in time, an experience for our customers who become our friends and family."

Hooray Henry’s is the newest addition to the h.wood. groups’ roster. The lounge consists of many unique details such as: brass detailing, equestrian lamps, british-chic décor, 3-D handmade projection wall above the DJ Booth, deep blue automotive paint lines the highly detailed wall and ceiling panels. The detailing of the booths are inspired by the Rolls Royce Silver Shadow and the bathrooms are reminiscent of the 1960’s underground London mod scene. Simply put Hooray Henry’s has been described as "an across-the-pond manner soiree gone gloriously off the rails".
