Soho House Gets a Bigger House to Hold All Their Houses

The Shoreditch House in London

Last week we were overly excited about the future opening of Soho House Chicago. But before the private members club/boutique hotel opens in the Windy City, Soho House is expected to first open in Mumbai this June and then in Istanbul in 2013.

And it turns out all this globe-trotting expansion is probably due to a major investment from grocery store billionaire Ron Burkle who recently bought a 60 percent share in the company.

Soho House hotelier Nick Jones wrote about the news to Soho House members saying:

'Though we've had a number of interested parties table offers for Soho House in the last few years, I believe that Ron shares our vision, and provides us with the backing to expand and improve our clubs whilst remaining true to our original ethos.'

Hotelier of the Year: Nick Jones of Soho House Hotels

It's what you've been waiting all year for--The 2010 HotelChatter Awards! We'll be bringing you the best and worst of the year all day today and part of tomorrow. Agree or disagree with our picks? Air your thoughts in comments below.

With our usual staple of hoteliers just kicking back and relaxing (see below), we were hard pressed to find someone actively expanding his or her hotel collection. Then we remembered:

Bayside Room

At last! After gazing at sketched renderings for months, we finally have photos of the rooms at Soho Beach House to ogle.

Founding members of the latest "House" were treated to a soft opening on Tuesday night, and we're told that the hotel and Cecconi's restaurant will open to the public on October 11. (We're not finding rooms available at all in October, however. Perhaps the 50 hotel rooms are already sold out or maybe there's a glitch in the online rezzie system.)
