Sustainable Storefront With Demo Kitchen

800 SqFt


Welcome to SOMMwhere, an intimate oasis in the heart of the Lower East Side. Transport yourself and guests to this tranquil locale conveniently located on Ludlow between Hester and Grand. It is a perfect venue for a range of aesthetically-driven events including product launches, editor events, culinary events, wine tastings, fundraisers, intimate gatherings & commitment ceremonies, fashion showrooms, yoga workshops, meditation retreats, photo shoots, and more.

Conceived by creative director Fatima Fazal, SOMMwhere is a stylish and sustainable escape. The 1,200 SF flexible space offers clients elevated features including curved and mirrored walls, arched doorways, a natural wood & concrete kitchenette, a private dressing room, and an unexpected wet-room with built in bench and waterfall shower. Within the kitchenette, clients are provided with elegant ceramic dishware, a complimentary zero waste coffee bar, and an under-counter stainless steel fridge and dishwasher. The most distinctive feature is its massive glass facade swivel door that invites the outside in and allows for direct sidewalk access.

SOMMwhere welcomes all vendors as well as offers in-house catering packages that draw from the local and award-winning restaurants that call the LES home. Additional in-house services include: On-site creative direction, branding (including custom neon), staffing, event photography, and access to private chefs for private dining experiences. SOMMwhere also gives back to its community by actively donating event décor, unused food and products to local partners.
