CB3 to Consider Soho House 2-Story ‘Garden’ Expansion on Ludlow Street

Before Ludlow House, July 2014

Open for exactly two years, Ludlow House is primed for major expansion on its namesake street. The members-only club proposes demolition of the south-adjacent building – Libation will close imminently – to make way for its Ludlow Garden concept.

As previously reported, Ludlow Garden would occupy the ground and cellar levels of the new two-story building at 137 Ludlow Street. The main floor would include a 37-table restaurant as well as a rear garden covered by a retractable roof, offering patrons an external seating area; the basement would house a soundproofed recording studio and extra bathrooms for Ludlow House.

Meanwhile, there are two more public meet-and-greet sessions with Ludlow House regarding its plans – today and tomorrow from 2pm to 6pm.

Community Board 3 will hear the Soho House pitch at its SLA subcommittee meeting next month (June 18). The application is for an alteration of their full liquor license.
