SoHo House Coming To WeHo

The members only SoHo House with locations in London and New York, is set to open its doors in 2010 on the Sunset Strip's west end. The proposed A-list members club will be housed at 9200 Sunset Blvd. in the Luckman Plaza office building and at the tip of posh Beverly Hills residential areas. The penthouse will offer 360 degree views of LA and the Hollywood Hills with over 10,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor space.

Nearby residents complain that the club will bring the paparazzi, loud music, and traffic jams. Others believe the club will create jobs, provide a private escape for celebrities, and generate business for struggling local restaurants. {Personally, the area is a bit "dead." It seems the only nearby happening spots are the Rainbow and the Roxy, if they're even considered happening anymore. This little pocket could use a little revamping and action.}

$1,400 will get you an annual membership at the SoHo House New York. For additional fees, members may spend the night in "bedrooms" boasting names like Playpen, Playhouse, Playground, and Playroom. Rooms start at $405 per night. The Meatpacking District club also offers a rooftop pool, tranquil spa, and various rooms like The Library and The Drawing Room to hang out or rent out for private parties.

I heard the news report on this while we were in Napa over the weekend!!! My first thought: Sam Jones pretending to be some pretentious Brit and crashing the rooftop pool at Soho House NY!!!! I'm so thrilled it will be across the street from my gyno and dentists offices. Hopefully I can get a rooftop shot while in my dentist chair, since it overlooks the rooftop! Weho could use a little action - the Rainbow days are plain old tired. Thanks for the post!
