Ludlow House Proposes ‘Lou’s’ for its Hell Square Garden Expansion

Before Ludlow House, July 2014

Soho House will soon embark on a large-scale expansion project for its Ludlow House entity.

As first reported here, the members-only club proposes to construct the so-called Ludlow Garden at 137 Ludlow Street. Meaning, the current building that houses the Libation bar on the ground floor will likely meet the wrecking ball in due course.

And the restaurant previously mentioned as part of the concept now has a name. According to application materials submitted to Community Board 3, the 41-table concept is called Lou’s. The establishment extends into the rear yard with additional seating, but will be covered by a retractable roof. Of concern to neighbors – this partially-enclosed dining area will be closed off at 10pm during weekdays, and 11pm on weekends. Overall hours for Lou’s are closing times of 2am all days.

Below is a tentative menu, which includes items like burgers, sandwiches, noodle bowls, dumplings, skewers, and pizzas.
