Ratched on Netflix has been getting a fair amount of criticism about everything from its crazy plot to its eccentric characters. But there’s one thing fans and haters can agree on. Ryan Murphy and Evan Romansky’s new series is gorgeous to watch.
If you want to have a mini-vacation centered around Sarah Paulson’s latest show, that’s very much possible. From Lucia State Hospital to the Governor’s bar, here’s where Netflix’s Ratched was filmed.
Where Was Lucia State Hospital Filmed?
Though Lucia is a real town in California, Lucia State Hospital isn’t a real psychiatric facility. The real Lucia is south of San Francisco and north of Santa Barbara, and much like in the show it’s a pretty small place. It’s so small, in fact, it doesn’t have much room for a mental hospital.
Filming the creepy center for torture took place in Los Angeles. The mansion at King Gillette Ranch in Calabasas, California, is the real-life counterpart of Lucia State Hospital. Built for the razor magnate King C. Gillette in 1928, the building was designed by the architect of California’s Golden Age, Wallace Neff. The site is open to the public and available to be rented out for weddings and events. At the moment visitors can explore the park as long as they comply with COVID-19 guidelines, wear face coverings, and don’t use the facility’s park benches or water fountains.
Where Was the Sealight Inn Filmed?
You may not be able to easily explore Lucia State Hospital, but you should have no trouble hanging out where Mildred Ratched spent her quiet hours. The cliffside Seaslight Inn is very much real though its actual name is the Lucia Lodge. Located along the Big Sur coast, rates range anywhere from $250 a night to $400. And yes, the lodge is open right now.
There’s one more real setting in Ratched that fans can explore. Governor George Wilburn’s (Vincent D’Onofrio) favorite bar is actually Cole’s French Dip. Located in downtown Los Angeles, the bar has recently been reopened for dine-in.
