In true Wanderlust fashion, the producer of the world's largest yoga lifestyle events is set to open a massive studio in the heart of Hollywood. Taking over cult-favorite yoga studio Golden Bridge's former digs at 1357 North Highland Avenue, Wanderlust Hollywood will offer one-stop wellness similar to DTLA's The Springs, hosting a 10,000-square-foot oasis filled with yoga classes, meditation sessions, DIY workshops, retail, live performances, a café, and even a members-only speakeasy.
Expected to open this July, Wanderlust tells us that the space will be a whopping three levels: the first floor will host a 1,200 square-foot studio for musically-scored yoga and meditation ($23 drop-in, $105 five-class card, $199 ten-class card, $169 monthly unlimited); the second floor will host a members-only (pricing available upon request) speakeasy called "The Library" where members can chill, drink coffee or wine, and gain exclusive access to the rooftop deck; the third floor will feature fully-equipped men's and women's changing rooms, showers and locker facilities. There will also be a gallery with rotating art, a retail store with yoga apparel and wellness goods by local vendors, and a 3,800-square-foot event space called "The Greatest Place."
For health foodies, the Wanderlust Café will be curated by award-winning chef Seamus Mullen and will offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner, in addition to "on-the-go food and drinks with a range of gluten-free and vegan options. Expect to enjoy a fair trade, organic and espresso bar, in-house vegan desserts, salads, sandwiches, curated dry goods and more in the indoor and outdoor café with a lushly landscaped patio."
Last but not least, here's what Wanderlust Hollywood's Facebook page has to say about the area's annoying parking situation that constantly irked Golden Bridge yogis: "We have considered parking and plan to staff our lot with an attendant and rent additional parking from neighboring businesses." YES.
Wanderlust Hollywood will be open Monday through Sunday from 6am to 10pm.
Update (July 6th, 9:56am): Wanderlust has updated their pricing details. Above are the accurate fees.
