Yes, Soho House is a members-only club, but if you live in LA for even a summer, you’ll end up at their West Hollywood location eventually. Just don’t let anyone tell you this bi-level rooftop is for actually getting work done - it’s not. It’s for well-dressed rich kids with underwhelming IMDb pages to stand around on Friday nights and lie about how many auditions they went on this month. It’s a soul-crushing atmosphere to be sure, but one that can be mitigated by sliding up to the bar, ordering a shockingly well-made gin martini, and judging the sh*t out every person you recognize from yesterday’s callback.
