As we continue our celebration of 20 years in the US, we meet some of the people who make our West Coast Houses hubs of creativity

When we consider what makes Soho House so special – our creative, talented and forward-thinking members – it’s little wonder that Los Angeles is home to four of our North American outposts. With bustling art, fashion and food scenes – plus, of course, a rich history of film and TV – the City of Angels is the destination for people who want to be where it’s all happening.

We opened our first LA-based House – Soho House West Hollywood – back in 2010. Little Beach House Malibu, Soho House Holloway and Soho Warehouse in Downtown LA soon followed, each offering members a slice of something different. And, as we celebrate our 20th anniversary in the USA, we thought it was time we shone a light on some of the faces that bring the vibes to each of our clubs across LA.

Read on to meet the members – and find out what makes their local Houses so special to them.

Actor, filmmaker and DJ

How long have you been a member?
‘Since 2016, just over seven years.’

Why is Soho House special to you? And what makes your US House unique?
‘It’s always been at the forefront of cool; members are true tastemakers. It feels like a space to access endless amounts of opportunities. What sets West Hollywood apart is its status as the OG California House; many members have been part of it for years. Walking in, I always feel like I’m reuniting with family.’

How do you spend your time at Soho House? Any standout moments?
‘I embrace Soho House’s full offering – attending screenings, workshops, networking events, and brunches, while also maintaining a regular DJ presence.

‘Meeting my wife stands out as the most incredible and significant moment for me. Another amazing memory is the screening of my first short film, Grimshaw. The gracious WeHo team allowed us to showcase it, followed by a Q&A session sponsored by Peroni. I’ve also had the privilege of DJing at four New Year’s Eve events and countless Halloween parties. These experiences at Soho House West Hollywood have really elevated my DJ career, connecting me with amazing clients and taking my artistic journey to the next level.’
