dream pad of the moment: the harmony club
built in 1909 in alabama, the harmony club was a full-functioning social meeting place for men. with a beautiful and sweeping view of the alabama river and an impressive total square footage of 20,000 feet, the harmony club was the place to be.
the layout was divided by floor – 1st floor held retail space; the 2nd floor had a men’s lounge and restaurant, fully equiped with pool tables, poker tables, and slot machines; the 3rd floor was the ballroom, the place for many parties and gatherings over the years.
in the 1960s, it disbanded and was left vacant until an industrial designer and architect by the name of David Hurlbut bought it 12 years ago. he bought it for $100,000 – and now lives in the space. he has kept a lot of the original structure and character of the building, which is admirable. i especially love the aged walls throughout!
