How Equinox clubs are designed

Hudson Yards club lounge

This, the 100th location, is also connected to the Equinox Hotel and the Equinox corporate office. The design draws inspiration from the Hudson Yards site and the train terminus, juxtaposing the rawness of the rail yards with the concept of a luxurious sanctuary. Members enter to a 1,500-square-foot lounge with a fireplace, black chrome reflective ceiling, and unadulterated views of Vessel.

Throughout, Kenya Black marble is accented by European Oak wood and copper. Exposed concrete walls tie back to the industrial section of Manhattan that pre-dated the club. Ascending the main stairs, you'll reach a 9,100-square-foot pool deck with 360 degree views—the first of its kind for Equinox.

Lincoln Common

Lincoln Common is Equinox's first new Chicago location in ten years. It's built in Lincoln Park, on the former site of the Children’s Memorial Hospital. While most of the site was cleared, the 1930’s brick-clad boiler house and laundry building were preserved, creating the current entrance and façade of the club.

The reception features a custom 3D brick tile inspired by the exterior, while walnut tones are prominent throughout to create a warm, inviting atmosphere. White marble and brass accents add a modern-yet-timeless quality to the space.


This is the first Equinox in Austin, located in the energetic, exciting South Congress neighborhood. The neon signs are an homage to the ones that dot South Congress Street. The overall aesthetic of the club is gritty, bold, and contemporary.

The Austin club also highlights a connection to nature: The outdoor deck is separated by a movable glass partition to reception which creates a grand entrance and easy access to the open air. In addition, wood elements offset Equinox's signature blackened steel.
