Soho House
Ladies Who Lunch Series
"Keeping Up Appearances"
Our new "Ladies Who Lunch" series for Soho House begins with an in depth look at "Keeping Up Appearances." In a town where an inordinate amount of emphasis is placed on appearances, you want to put your best self out there at all times. From the clothes you choose to your grooming habits and the language you use, all of these choices reflect your aspirations. In this first session, we'll tackle such subtle, but universal codes from good posture and grooming to non-verbal language and distracting mannerisms. Contact us for more info or call SHWH to reserve your space today!

Summer has arrived! Time to toss those all-consuming calendars, lounge in your leisure wear, and embody an air of calm and ease for the next few months. Whether jet-setting to exotic locations or enjoying a stay-cation while still at work, summer is a frame of mind anyone can adopt. It offers us an opportunity to slow down and recharge to ensure we are well-rested and ready to hit the ground running come fall. 

We're thrilled to kick off this summer with a new series program for adults at Soho House West Hollywood. Each month will focus on a particular set of modern manners tackled in our book with topics ranging from Keeping Up Appearances to Unsocial Media. For the younger set, we are pleased to offer our annual Manners Boot Camp as a fun and educational alternative to normal summer fare. We are also excited to introduce our Summer Manners Hiking Series combining an outdoor experience that moves the body while expanding the mind. 

Along with these original programs, we are pleased to offer a range of courses for all ages from the college campus to the corporate sector. Our always popular Modern Manners programs will add polish and smooth out any ruffled feathers.  Finally, take advantage of early registration for Season 8 of our Let's Dance Cotillion at the Beverly Wilshire - A Four Seasons Hotel in January 2017.
