A new indoor children’s play area with a twist opens Saturday, Sept. 20, 2014, in the heart of one of L.A.’s most charming and diverse neighborhoods for families, Atwater Village.

“Our separately curated environments allow parents time to relax or catch up on work, while kids play in a brand-new space and are supervised by our amazing playroom staff.”

WHAT: The Great Escape Club celebrates its grand opening
WHO: Los Angeles-area families with kids in search of fun and parents in search of a relaxing moment
WHEN: Sunday, Sept. 20, 2014, 10 a.m.–6 p.m.
WHERE: The Great Escape Club, 3197 Glendale Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90039
WHY: The traditional playroom experience is fun for kids but often leaves parents’ and caregivers’ enjoyment out of the equation. The Great Escape Club meets the needs of L.A. families in multiple new ways, offering not only a creative and safe environment for children to explore, but also a haven for adults to relax, find their focus, and socialize—in a dedicated space, designed to inspire tranquillity and help parents re-energize. Children enjoy their own adventure in the separate indoor play space, where they are cared for and attended to by highly qualified “Escape Artists.”

The Great Escape Club flips the idea of a traditional playroom for children by taking parents’ needs and desires into equal account. “If you never thought a playroom could also provide a sense of calm and a space to be productive, come take a tour and meet our Escape Artists,” said Great Escape Club creator and co-owner, Jay Tanner. “Our separately curated environments allow parents time to relax or catch up on work, while kids play in a brand-new space and are supervised by our amazing playroom staff.”

Parents and caregivers can choose to stay in the comfortably modern, well-appointed adult environment, where they might socialize with other parents in the common room, enjoy a latte, and use the workspace to accomplish whatever is on their to-do list for the day. Or, sign up for one of The Great Escape Club’s daily spa-like offerings, such as restorative yoga, reiki and more.

While they recharge, children experience their own adventure in a sparkling-new, contemporary playroom with exploration stations dedicated to art and creativity, plus interactive Kinect games that promote brain development and exercise. An array of traditional indoor playroom toys allows kids to explore and play for as long as parents need to unwind.

The Great Escape Club is also an ideal venue for celebrations and birthday parties. Experienced staff handle everything, from set-up to entertainment to clean-up, making for a stress-free party that’s unforgettable for children and adults alike. Party hosts simply arrive at the club, ready to have fun and make lifelong memories. Party packages fit a range of budgets, and custom theme parties are also available.

Centrally located in the heart of Atwater Village, The Great Escape Club is a children’s playroom and parental retreat that offers an elevated experience for both kids and adults. Developed by L.A. parents with decades of experience in the creative and family care-giving fields, The Great Escape Club’s creators responded to a need common among the millions of busy families in Los Angeles for a trusted local destination where children can play and grow, while parents find restoration and relaxation.
