Our Los Angeles readers will be pleased to hear that a new space has opened up in town – dedicated to custom motorcycle aficionados and enthusiasts. BMW and ‘The House Of Machines’ are collaborating on the latter’s new space in Los Angeles. BMW Motorrad will add to the overall vintage vibe, by displaying models from its ‘Heritage’ line, as part of the interior decor.

BMW RnineT - The House Of Machines, LA

The House of Machines was founded by coffee & beer innovator Brad Armitage, fashion designer Paul van der Spuy and entrepreneur Drew Madacsi. The trio were drawn together by their zeal for two-wheels – with a mission to create something original.

“We’ve combined things we really dig and think others would like too.”

This is the third venue the three partners have opened – with first in Cape Town, South Africa and the second in Niseko, Japan. The LA venue; in the Arts District, held its launch event on the 29 November 2017 and will be open in December.

The formula for the venues is simple – the finest of everything that the founders enjoy. Great music & entertainment, coffee & beer, cool motorcycle gear and the most important ingredient of all – bikes. A winning formula, not too dissimilar to the UK’s very own Bike Shed.


The LA venue will house a bar and shop offering the latest motorcycling gear and clobber including threads from THoM [the in-house brand].  In addition there’s a workshop where punters will be able to get their hands dirty, working on their machines.
