SoHo House Coming To Thoroughly Gentrify The Arts District
SoHo House has plans to open a second private club in Los Angeles, this time in the Arts District. There have been a lot of 'this is it' moments when it comes to the gentrification of downtown Los Angeles' Arts District. That giant mixed-user no starving artist could ever afford to call home; the dog park where you have to pay rent; and the new Cafe Gratitude, to name a few. However, nothing says this neighborhood is gentrified quite like a private members-only club that will likely cost something like $1,800 per year.
Though the exact location of the new club hasn't been revealed, it is an 80,000 square foot warehouse space that will be called SoHo Warehouse when it opens next year, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Its amenities will include a lounge, a gym, a rooftop pool and studio rooms for members to stay for short periods of time. There will be no event spaces, and they'll be cracking down on the number of guests.
The new club is in response the WeHo location hitting its membership capacity, as well as part of a worldwide expansion of the brand.
