Soho House's original incarnation in London was an irreverent response to gentleman's clubs, known for their twin demons of good breeding and bad food. Los Angeles, a city without a dress code, is the ideal place for this nouvelle,co-ed gentleman's club. Serving French-California cuisine by chef Matthew Armistead until 1 a.m., it's known for its dangerously braised veal chops. Perched on the top two floors of a 14-story building on Sunset Boulevard, at the base of the hills of West Hollywood, this outpost of the private members club is defined by its 180-degree views of Los Angeles. It almost gives the illusion of being above the smog. A great escape, and, according to Spacey, "one of the best Soho Houses going."
