Soho House was founded in London in 1995 as a home from home for people working in creative fields, and has since become an exclusive crew of clubs from the UK to Berlin, Istanbul, Barcelona, New York, West Hollywood, Miami, Chicago and Toronto.
Membership to Soho House definitely has its privilege, but entertaining most of all – Soho House has become the most important club in Hollywood — a high-wattage magnet for A-listers and dealmakers. When Soho House made its Hollywood debut nearly ten years ago, there were some who doubted its longevity. Yes, the club’s previous incarnations, in London and New York, had been very successful. And everyone loved the sweeping view from the balcony. But would Hollywood really line up for membership in an office-tower club started by a few anonymous Brits (Nick Jones), and more locations thereafter? Yes and yes. Soho House membership policies focus on creativity “above net worth and job titles” with “studied resistance to ostentation…[and] cultivated status signifiers,” and favor moral values over financial success.
Not all Soho Houses included hotel stays (or “bedrooms” as they call them), but now that there are 20 locations around the world, Soho House & Co offers places to stay in the UK, Europe and North America. They have bedrooms, apartments, lofts and cabins, at the beach, in the city and in the countryside, for short and long stays. The options are listed here.
