Wanderlust cafe, yoga studio, members-only social club is opening in Hollywood

If you've been longing to do yoga, munch on a kale Caesar salad, sunbathe in a garden, meditate on life for an hour or so and catch up on some reading in a private library, here's your chance to do it all in one space. 

The folks behind Wanderlust Festival, the festival for yoga and music enthusiasts who  appreciate music and an overall sense of well being, are opening Wanderlust in Hollywood. 

It's not to be confused with the "Wanderlust" movie, in which Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston drink drug-laced tea at a hippie commune. 

This Wanderlust is a 10,000-square-foot cafe, yoga studio, meditation zone and members-only social club scheduled to open July 24 at the corner of Highland Avenue and De Longpre Avenue.

When you first walk in, you enter the retail area. This is where you can purchase kombucha, dried beans, pickles, yoga mats and more made by local artisans. In the cafe, there will be grab-and-go pastries from Baked L.A., sit-down meals of chia pudding, avocado on toast, breakfast tacos, a forbidden black rice bowl, seaweeds and mustard greens or garden crudites. 

And you can nibble on your garden crudite inside, or outside on the garden patio, where most of the herbs and greens used in the restaurant are actually grown. 

The cafe is also where you can call ahead to order a grain bowl. The kitchen will have it ready for you to enjoy after your yoga class in a room called the Greatest Place. Here is where you'll find room for 200 yoga mats, and space for other activities to make use of the room's state of the art sound system and lighting.

Think film screenings over dinner, wine tasting, nutrition classes and more. 

A flight of stairs up and you're in the work area, where people can come, plug in their laptops and work on that script they've been meaning to write forever. Towards the back, there's a members-only area for Wanderlust social club members.

Up another flight of stairs and you're in the meditation room. 

Like Soho House, Wanderlust will offer an annual membership, which gives members access to private areas of the space as well as yoga classes and more. If you want to know the price, you'll have to ask. 

Wanderlust will be open daily, and the cafe will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner.
