Word on the street is that Soho House will open its Ludlow Street branch today at noon. New members will gain access to the premises at that time. The inaugural had been pushed back from a target earlier this month. Good luck.
The debut of Ludlow House comes after a final construction push over the last several weeks that saw a bevy of activity at 139 Ludlow. New sidewalks, exterior fixtures, clipboard-carrying folks running to and fro, and tons of garbage. It capped a lengthy three-year campaign, from project conception to completion.
As previously reported, several venues live within the four-story Ludlow House. There’s Lou’s Kitchen & Bar, a “club bar with open kitchen” that will serve an all-day American Italian menu; the Velvet Room and the Dark Room are clubs within the club that also double for “private screenings”; lastly, the covered rooftop garden is to boast a “vegetarian Asian restaurant” called Ducked Up. Of particular note, however, is the fact that no booze is permitted outside on the terrace. That was a stipulation of its liquor license.
Membership pricing starts at $1,000 for the most basic (I.e. Limited) plans for those under the age of 27.
