Since opening the first Soho House in a Georgian townhome in London’s namesake bohemian neighborhood nearly three decades ago, the members’ club for creatives has expanded its concept. Now you’ll find hotels on both sides of the pond—plus Asia and soon-to-open Soho House São Paulo in Brazil. While a good chunk of the houses are in major cities like New York, Paris, and Hong Kong, Soho House has popped up in more unexpected places, like a private island in the Caribbean and the English countryside. While the signature design thread is consistently strong throughout, each spot knows how to make the most of its locale. From beach clubs to rooftop pools suspended over the city, here are eight of our favorite Soho Houses around the globe.
In the Spanish city known for striking Gothic and Modernism buildings, Soho House Barcelona feels right at home. The 18th-century building has become a popular gathering spot for locals thanks to the buzzy rooftop plunge pool overlooking Marina Port Vell. The fifth-floor club level is one of the most expansive we’ve seen in the collection, with plenty of communal tables, cozy nooks, and private areas to cowork or meet for Mediterranean-influenced fare. The first-floor gym has also become a wellness hub in the city, outfitted with tons of state-of-the-art machines, a spin room with indoor cycling workout classes, and a private fitness room overlooking the palm-lined port where you can book a group HIIT or circuit training session—some of which are complimentary for members.
The unofficial meeting place during annual events like Art Basel, 49-room Soho Beach House—the brand’s first beach house—takes over a 1940s tower on Miami Beach’s main drag, Collins Avenue. The blue-striped daybeds lining the centerpiece pool fill up fast—especially on the weekend—but there are plenty of other places to sprawl out and soak up some sun, from the lounge chairs on the private beach to the eighth-floor rooftop terrace and plunge pool.
Inspired by upstate New York’s cabin culture, the rustic-chic Soho Farmhouse sprawls across 100 acres in the English countryside, about a two-hour drive from London. The 114 rooms range from wooden cabins with standing tubs and four-poster beds to a four-bedroom farm cottage and the property’s original farmhouse. An escape from city living, the estate is car-free (except for vintage Porsches) and has everything from a stable with ponies to infrared sauna cabins and four Japanese onsen-style baths sunken into the lake.
The newest New York club is in one of the best locations in town—on the Brooklyn waterfront between the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges. While it doesn’t have rooms, you’ll still want to spend the evening going from sunset drinks on the outdoor terrace to wood-fired pizza or fire pit-grilled branzino in the dining room. Take time to stroll through the architecture-themed art collection, which includes vintage photographs of DUMBO by Steven Siegel and paintings by the likes of Turkish-American abstract artist Hayal Pozanti and UK-based Alex Hartley.
With its opulent, restored interiors, Venetian-style frescoes, and original bones as a 19th-century palazzo built by a Genoese merchant, Soho House Istanbul is definitely one of the most luxurious in the collection (there’s even a traditional marble Turkish hammam). Club Boheme takes a cue from the original French bistro in London that feels very much plucked out of Paris (think wood-paneled walls, plush armchairs, and an extravagant chandelier hanging overhead). The 87 bedrooms also mix Turkish touches like vintage carpets and antiques with industrial-chic exposed concrete walls and mid-century modern furniture.
Wake up to views of the Arabian Sea from one of the 38 rooms at the 11-story townhouse on Juhu Beach. Nearly 90% of the furniture was sourced locally from markets or vintage sellers (picture block-printed fabrics from Rajasthan, vibrant Indian tiles, and walls covered in reclaimed sleeper wood). The majority of the 200 pieces of art placed throughout are by South Asian artists, and even the rooftop pool looks like a work of art, clad in colorful patterned tiles and playful, domed cabanas.
When an island has been called a place where “billionaires go to escape millionaires,” you know you’re in for a treat. The ritzy reputation refers to the three-square-mile private island’s exclusive locale (you’ll need a puddle jumper or private charter from Barbados or Saint Vincent)—Soho Beach House Canouan is very much barefoot luxury. Get ready to spend your days lounging under thatched umbrellas on the sand, sipping cocktails at the beach shack-like bar, or on the jetty, which doubles as a dreamy setting for a private dinner.
Latin America’s first Soho House opened in Mexico City this year. A historic casa in the nucleus of trending CDMX neighborhood Colonia Juárez, expect several bars (one of them is a tequila bar), plus restaurants and an idyllic pool.
