Setting

Steps from the Strip

Soho House Holloway’s West Hollywood setting is one of neon-drenched strips and Golden Age cinematic glitter, but step inside and you’ll travel back to an LA of the Fifties and Sixties: the geometric perfection of the Stahl House, the yellows and oranges an enchanted David Hockney adopted from the landscape, Ed Ruscha’s Pop modernism, and dusty desert hues. Fresh artworks meet you at every turn, and House parties (gigs, salsa classes, paint-and-drink meets, DJ sets) keep the eras’ flares of creativity sparked. The rooftop has resonant views, bedrooms are visions of vintage finds, and every day a bar trolley rolls by for free drinks: a snapshot of the past you’ll absolutely have a blast in. 

Please note, if you are not a Soho House member, you have the option to add a 12-month Soho Friends membership to your booking for $130. Public rates are also available.

At the hotel

Roof terrace, club, library and co-working space, free fluff-and-fold service, free WiFi. In rooms: Smart TV, Marshall Bluetooth speaker, Roberts radio, minibar with pre-mixed signature cocktails, coffee-maker with Grind capsules, tea-making kit, hair-straightener, full-size Cowshed products.

Our favourite rooms

While parts of the hotel nod to the peppier Pop stylings of the likes of Hockney and Ruscha, bedrooms have a more sun-bleached, aged-Polaroid-picture feel to them, with beach-y hues, weathered wooden floors, locally made tapestries and furnishings inspired by or from the 1950s to 1970s. They’re similar in style (although from the Medium up you get a bath tub, some in the bedroom), but each has a unique work by either photographer Dan Siman-Tov, illustrator Dominique Labaki, and mixed-media artist Elizabeth Ibarra.

Packing tips

Bring whichever creative outlet brings you the most joy: a sketchbook, notepad, knitting… And, if you decide to log on for work, remember that laptops are only allowed in certain areas at certain times.

Also

The Big Accessible room has ample space and a roll-in shower for guests with mobility issues.

Children

Kids can stay and reception can help book babysitting, but little ones might cramp your style a bit in this cool Hollywood hangout.

Sustainability efforts

It’s reassuring to know that Soho House are working to deliver an environmental impact strategy across their sites. With 2030 goals set to enhance and standardise recycling programmes and responsible food-waste management at every outpost of the member’s club globally. They also work with local suppliers selected for their like-minded responsibility. In the kitchen, there’s scrutiny around how Soho House sources coffee, cocoa and palm oil, as well as sustainable seafood and responsibly reared meat. Expect greater choice of meat-free dishes and seasonal ingredients whenever practical. Measures to assess Soho House’s carbon footprint and reduce emissions are ongoing.

Food and Drink

Top Table

As an LA look-out, the rooftop does a sterling job, but we also like the handsome red-wine-leather booths in the restaurant, and the frisson of fun in the courtyard.

Dress Code

'Pop' goes your wardrobe.

Hotel restaurant

Soho House is very well travelled, and having residences from LA to Berlin to Mumbai means they have a repertoire of favourite dishes to choose from, all of which are represented on Holloway’s menu. There’s prawn toast with thousand-island dressing from SH Hong Kong, hamachi crudo with a yuzu-truffle dressing from Soho Farmhouse, comforting butter chicken with bhajis from SH Mumbai and cacio e pepe from SH Rome. Plus, some club classics (a dirty burger, steak Béarnaise), and some Holloway signatures (burrata with figs, honey and chilli; persimmon-arugula salad with a squeeze of lemon and scattering of pumpkin seeds). And, on the rooftop, you can imagine you’re in the Med, or – more specifically – Miami with small meze plates from Mandolin Taverna, SH’s popular Floridian eatery. 

Hotel bar

Sweet mother of mid-century modernism – there are no bad angles in the hotel’s club bar and sitting room, with their warm wood panelling, mint-green terrazzo flooring, a cache of vintage chairs and velvet sofas that thrifters would kill for, and lush native-to-LA greenery. There are even discreet old-school phone booths, added so that members could make calls and stick to the club’s ‘no smartphones’ policy, but which also make you feel like you’re in a Fifties spy movie. To make the most of LA’s sunny disposition, sidle up to the long marble-topped bar in the open-air courtyard for a round of knock-out refreshing Eastern Standards (vodka or gin with limes, cucumber and mint), or pick a Picante de la Casa (tequila with fresno, agave, cilantro and lime) to pair with the sweeping views on the roof terrace (decorated with a vibrant mural by Jessalyn Brooks). And it’s not just drinking that goes down here – live music frequently rings out in all parts, and you might find yourself making ceramics, salsa dancing or at a paint-and-drink party. But for those who want to sip CBD-infused soda in peace, there’s the restful Hague-blue library.

United States

A part of West Hollywood’s big personality, but tucked away on relatively low-key Holloway Drive (close to Soho House West Hollywood), Soho House Holloway is well-placed for Melrose Avenue shopping and Sunset Strip bar-hopping.

Planes

LAX (Los Angeles International) is the closest airport, about an hour’s drive from the hotel. Transfers can be arranged on request.

Trains

If you’re riding in on an Amtrak train, it’ll stop at the striking Mission Moderne-style Union Station, a 40-minute drive away. Before you hop in a taxi, see if there are any events taking place. And – believe it or not – LA has a Metro.

Automobiles

For conquering LA’s urban sprawl, a set of wheels will be essential, especially for branching out into other neighbourhoods. There’s a car park in the hotel ($45 a vehicle, each night; $16 for day visitors) basement and a valet service.

Worth getting out of bed for

A city by itself in the dead – or rather, very much alive – centre of LA, West Hollywood is a ride, with legendary and often infamous bars and clubs along the Sunset Strip, monied Melrose Ave and Beverly Hills, historic gay haunts along Santa Monica (hi, Boystown), and trashier punkier Fairfax. Get the more touristy sights out of the way first: Take a leisurely stroll along the Walk of Fame, pausing at TCL Chinese Theatre to see celeb hand imprints and costumed characters. At the east end lies the Hollywood Palladium, but during the day head south for a tour of the Hollywood Forever Cemetery’s famous tombs and the Paramount Pictures Studio Tour. Then double back down Melrose where the serious shopping starts; find pre-loved couture at Decades and Resurrection, punkier pieces at Posers, and edgier designers at geometric marvel Maxfield – and Paul Smith’s pink box of a shop is always good for the ‘gram. You’ll need to drive for bougie-r boutiques and your Pretty Woman moment on Rodeo Drive, but the Grove in Fairfax is a more fun experience with green spaces and even a little tram, movie theatres, and lively events amid the luxe labels. If you’re feeling Soho House Holloway's love of art, then visit the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the LA Art Box (where content is produced as you browse), Jeffrey Deitch for intriguing installations and the Artspace Warehouse, which sells works at non-VIP prices. There’s also the MAK Center For Art and Architecture (itself in a lovely modernist number by RM Schindler), but you could just drive through WeHo and into the hills; on the way you’ll see the ​​Lloyd Wright House and Studio, the Storer House (another Wright build), Greystone Mansion, and the iconic Stahl House. The One Archives gives you a grounding in the city’s LGBTQ+ history, or you could dive on in, attending drag brunch or bingo at Hamburger Mary’s, bearded cabarets at Stache, and the Abbey for Musical Mondays. Soothe sore heads the next day with a hike in Runyon Canyon Park, or Griffith Park, a 20-minute drive away. This is home to the Hollywood sign, a challenging uphill hike, but with searing, hazy, city-wide views if you make it to the top.

Local restaurants

You’re in perhaps the most Hollywood part of Hollywood here so dining often comes with blockbuster bills and hard-to-get reservations, but you needn’t pull the ‘Don’t you know who I am?’ card to dine well here. Sushi Ginza Onodera’s omakase (the only option here) is a feast of very pricy and fresh fish, but you won’t feel short-changed; the fatty tuna is some of the city’s best. At Mexican Madre, spicy takes on mole-slathered chicken thigh or pork ribs, lamb barbacoa marinated in dried chilli and avocado leaves, and carne asada with grilled cactus are washed down with various margaritas and frosés. AOC is a deeply romantic wine bar, laced with greenery inside and out, where dishes are given the same consideration as the drinks, with bacon-wrapped, parmesan-stuffed dates; delicate salads (chicory with windrose apples, Asian pear, buttermilk and mint); duck stuffed with sausage, apple, dates and walnuts. For citrussy ceviches (scallop and blood orange, halibut with black mint and tiger’s milk, seabass with tarami-yuzu dressing), and unique Peruvian plates (filet mignon cooked in a red-wine-soaked cloth with huacatay sauce, wild prawns with pistachio salsa, miso-glazed octopus skewers with ninja radishes), roll up to the leafy terrace at Rosaliné.

Local cafés

LA is king of the kitsch-y cool hangout. Take Tail o’ the Pup, a hot-dog stand shaped like a hot-dog, which even serves hot-dogs in a bun shaped like a puppy – what’s not to love? And then there’s Norm’s, built in the Jetsons-esque Googie architectural style. Stop in anytime (it’s open 24/7) for cheese melts and chicken tenders, stacked sandwiches and bulky burgers, all manner of breakfast foods and a rootbeer float. And Pink’s hot-dogs is a Barbie-fied spot with a wall of signed photos from satisfied celebs.

Local bars

Ok, so, you’re unlikely to end your night in Tommy Lee or Axl Rose’s hotel rooms, or go on a bender with Leo’s ‘pussy posse’ these days, but the Sunset Strip can still throw horns. Whisky-a-Go-Go, where the Doors and Stooges took the stage, is legendary; the Rainbow Bar & Grill was home to the ‘Hollywood vampires’ (a largely nocturnal celebrity drinking club formed by Alice Cooper); and the Viper Room is infamous (for gangster meets, drugs to the gills and secret high-stakes poker games) but its off-the-rails rep is part of the fun. Chateau Marmont’s bar is a celeb-magnet still, but go there to take your seat among Hollywood history under the butterfly-dotted ceiling, in the glow of scarlet-shaded lamps. Plus the drinks – classic cocktails or those off the secret menu – are actually very good. And the art deco Tower Bar has hosted anyone who’s anyone (John Wayne, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor…) and continues to do so.

Anonymous review

Every hotel featured is visited personally by members of our team, given the Smith seal of approval, and then anonymously reviewed. As soon as our reviewers have returned from this love letter to mid-century art in West Hollywood and unpacked their Leica in a leather pouch and eye-wateringly expensive scarf from the Row, a full account of their artistic and acquisitive break will be with you. In the meantime, to whet your wanderlust, here's a quick peek inside Soho House Holloway in Los Angeles…

‘I prefer living in color,’ said painter David Hockney, one of the inspirations behind Soho House Holloway, a Soho House outpost amid WeHo’s salacious strips, iconic attractions and so-money-honey shopping centres. We agree, and we also like living in places that look like a Vogued-up version of the Bewitched set; the SH design team have outdone themselves, scavenging for velvet couches and important chairs, hauling in marble slab tables and native greenery galore, and installing dark-wood panelling, mint-green terrazzo and terracotta crazy-paved floors, and a space invasion of quirky chandeliers and light fittings. It’s the sort of place you could imagine Hockney, Bruce Nauman, Ed Ruscha and the like hanging out in after a booze-plus night on Sunset Strip; adding to throwback detailing are ld-school phone booths (due to the club’s Smartphone ban) and a drinks trolley wheeled out to your room at happy hour for a free classic or custom cocktail. But, it doesn’t live in the past, art from 40 creatives born, living or trained in LA is displayed throughout, bands take to the terrazzo or courtyard terrace to kick off musical nights, and the terrace with its hazy waves of LA ‘hoods stretching out in all directions, is a conduit for classes, workshops and art-fuelled hangs. Soho House Holloway might not be Pop bright, but it’s captured Hollywood’s hazy-crazy magic in full color.
