Take a Spin on the Tilt-o-Whirl of Exclusivity That Is Ludlow House

Here's what to expect from the Soho House's new Lower East Side spinoff.

Three years after filing a liquor license application for 139 Ludlow Street, the Soho house team is almost ready to cut the ribbon on Ludlow House, a members-only social club in a former funeral home. As you may recall, construction on this building sent an army of rats into the dining room of Mission Chinese Food.

The space has several dining and drinking paddocks. One of them is the Living Room, which is a lounge with a breakfast bar. Another is Lou's Kitchen & Bar, which has an "all-day American-Italian menu." And finally, Ludlow House contains a rooftop area called Ducked Up. On the homepage, this is described as "a vegetarian Asian restaurant also serving crispy duck."

The Soho House team is now hiring service staff for these dining and nightlife venues. Curbed NY notes that membership starts at $1,000 for people under 27 years of age who only want to access to Ludlow House. Three other membership packages are also available — if you fit the bill — including access to the other Soho House venues around the globe. The membership page explains that the club is looking for people that share a "creative soul."
