Anticipated for more than four years, Soho Warehouse in the Arts District is finally slated to open to members at the end of month.
“Designed for the eastside of LA’s creative community,” the former musician’s rehearsal space now features a glamorous rooftop with a bar, terrace, and swimming pool; a couple restaurants; another bar; communal areas; and 48 hotel room-like “bedrooms” that include use of the Warehouse’s new gym.
The original loading dock has been transformed into a leafy garden planted with “olive trees, winding jasmine and comfortable seating” shielded by shell-pink umbrellas.
The company unveiled the first photos of the spaces, designed by an in-house team, today.
Standard annual membership for the warehouse location will start at $2,160. Founder-level members will get to go in on September 30, but all other members will have to wait until October 14.
Soho Warehouse is located at Santa Fe Avenue and Bay Street, a few blocks south of Seventh Street, in the southern section of the Arts District. Right next door, a big mixed-use complex with 110 live-work units, retail, and restaurant space is planned by LA-based Bay Capital Fund. A block away, a nine-story office and retail project is in the works.
Soho House is not exactly trailblazing in this neighborhood—the entire Arts District is being transformed by projects proposed, in-progress, or recently opened. Globally renowned architects Herzog & de Meuron and Bjarke Ingels are each working on projects planned for the blocks just east of the Los Angeles River.
