Stop Everything and Look at These Mindblowing Videos of Soho House Istanbul

  Site Where: Beyoglu, Istanbul, Turkey

Sometimes a property comes along that is so mindblowingly different, superlatively amazing and completely unique that all you can do is let that mouth of yours fall unattractively open. This is one of those times.

Seriously, we just found footage of the new Soho House Istanbul. And all we can say is, if you thought the existing Soho House properties are good, you ain’t seen nothing yet.

It’s going to be the biggest property so far, with a whopping 87 bedrooms, Cecconi’s restaurant with “courtyard garden”, two – yes, two – rooftop pools (of which one at least is overlooking the Bosphorus, according to the video) and a nightclub, as well as the screening room, gym and Cowshed spa you’d expect.

But by far the best bit is the building itself: Palazzo Corpi in Beyoğlu, built in 1882 for a Genoese family, and then taken over (uh, quelle surprise?) by the US consulate 25 years later – the first US-owned diplomatic premises in the world (more on the US links here #history). Look at this video we stumbled on (ok, we didn't stumble, we were doing a pretty thorough stalking job on the property) – and be prepared to be wowed. (Sorry, privacy settings mean it's viewable but not embeddable.)

Your Early Christmas Present: Soho House Farmhouse Will Open In June

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: Great Tew, Oxfordshire
December 2, 2014 at 8:25 AM | by | Comments (0)

When news broke over the summer of a Soho Farmhouse hotel in Oxfordshire, we predicted it’d be a couple of years off, given that they had to build the thing from scratch.

We were wrong: Soho House Farmhouse will be opening in June 2015!!! #squeal #swoon #reconfiguresadventcalendarimmediately.

The evidence? This job advert for an HR manager we found browsing the Soho House website this weekend.

It doesn’t divulge much more info – it’ll be “in the heart of” the 125 acre Great Tew Estate, the log cabins (rooms) will be “spread around lakes”, while there will be two larger properties for groups, the Cottage and the main farmhouse. It looks like there will be a screening room, the Electric Barn, as well as the Boathouse pool and, of course, the Cowshed spa. It sounds heavenly. No word on rates, but Soho House properties are generally pretty reasonable for what they are - even for non-members like us (REMEMBER: you don't have to be a member to stay, however many shifty people 'offer' to 'help you' with membership in the comments).

Inside The Soho House Chicago, Not Just for Members Only

A few weeks ago, Soho House opened their newest, exclusive hideaway in Chicago. We finally went to check it out for ourselves and we think, this might just be the one of the best hotels in Chicago.

The property has 40 bedrooms, three restaurants (all open to the public), a private cinema and a retro-styled gym with a vintage boxing ring and aerial yoga classes. Soho House is also located on a back street in the West Loop neighborhood behind the hottest restaurant precinct in town. (Since you can clearly work off whatever you ate the night before, there's no reason not to take a few steps to some of the eateries found on Randolph Street.)

Checking In On: The Soho House Chicago

The Soho House Chicago has been open for a week now and since we're still, um, working on our Chicago travel plans, we thought we'd do a cursory check of recent internet reactions.

The hotel surprisingly lacks a TripAdvisor page, so we're unable to find out the nitty gritty details of like quirky elevators or loud vents or issues with WiFi. But here's what we've gleamed about the new hotel from both the mainstream media and the (probably more important) social media:

New York Times: There's a custom, on-site boxing ring coming soon.

New York Post: Nine different products from Cowshed line the showers.

Eater Chicago: Go inside the Chicken Shop and Pizza East, both London-based restaurants that have spun off to Chicago.

Chicago Mag: The "ultra-indulgent" treatment from the Cowshed Spa is actually just a pedicure.

The Only Thing Better Than A Soho House Hotel: A Soho Farmhouse Hotel

July 31, 2014 at 8:30 AM | by | Comment (1)

Just when you thought Soho House was all about quietly colonizing the world, with Chicago on track to open next month, comes the welcome news that it’s not neglecting its origins. No, not the forthcoming City of London property, but something much better – another English country house hotel to rival Babington House.

We told you back in March that the Soho House Chicago would be opening in August and well, wouldn't you know? The Chicago spinoff of the London members-only club--with hotel rooms attached--is actually opening next month, on August 11 to be exact.

Located in the West Loop nabe in an old warehouse that was once home to the Chicago Belting Factory, the Soho House Chicago will now offer 40 rooms, ranging in sizes Small, Medium and Medium Plus.

The small rooms, which are going for $240 a night on opening night, start at 300-sq.ft. and include free WiFi; complimentary tea, coffee and homemade biscuits; and Cowshed products in the bathroom. The website also says a hair straightener will be included with the hair dryer. Score one for the curly-haired ladies out there.

The Medium rooms offer 450-sq.ft. of space while the Medium Plus rooms bump up to a generous 650-sq.ft of space with a bathtub in the bathroom. (The other rooms only have showers.) Rates for these rooms are going for $350 on opening night. Sadly, there are only illustrations of the rooms online and not real photographs. Hopefully, we can get some of those for you to peep real soon.

This is excellent news. We just got word that Soho House Chicago will open in August. Last time we dished on this exclusive, London-based chain we expounded on the coolness of West Loop location. Here are some more details about the property:

There will be a scant 40 guest rooms (told you it was exclusive) on the building's third and fourth floors. The rooms, a press release tell us, will be "comfortable" and "airy," and they'll have rainforest showers and products from Cowshed. Rates start at $160, and bookings will be available this spring.

The Next Soho House London Will Be Here

Go To The Hotel's Web 
  Site Where: 27 Poultry, London, United Kingdom
January 3, 2014 at 9:06 AM | by | Comment (1)

On a list of ambitious expansion plans – taking the original private members club as far as Mumbai – Soho House will be increasing its footprint in home base London too. And a serious increase it is: taking over the immense former Midland Bank building on Poultry, just off of Bank. That puts Soho House – founded as a private members’ club “for those in the film, media and creative industries” – right in the heart of banker / lawyer land.

The Grade-I listed building’s fifteen minutes of fame, mentioned pretty much everywhere, came and went in the sixties, as a backdrop for the James Bond film “Goldfinger”. Most reports also talk about 255 rooms, but the architect’s website speaks of “184 luxury suites of varying sizes”. Not quite the same as the intimate Dean Street Townhouse, is it?

Oh, The Places Soho House Will Go

November 21, 2013 at 9:34 AM | by | Comment (1)

Since its beginning as a members-only club in London that you probably couldn't get into, Soho House has come a long way -- from New York to Miami, Toronto, Berlin and more -- becoming a touch more welcoming in the process.

It was just a couple of weeks ago that we heard rumors of Soho House opening up a new hotel in what used to be the BBC Center in London. Now we hear that there are confirmed plans for a different hotel in another part of the city: in, well, the City (that's London's financial district).

Time for a quick round-up of Soho House's heady expansion plans, we think.

Will Soho House Open a New Hotel at the Old BBC?

Where: Wood Lane, London, United Kingdom, W12 7RJ
November 8, 2013 at 4:09 PM | by | Comment (1)

Now that Soho House have made their move on the hot Chicago hotel scene (as well as that of Mumbai, Barcelona, Toronto and Istanbul ... and a new club on New York's Lower East Side), rumor has it they may be turning their attention back home -- to a new London location.

The Evening Standard reports that Soho House hotelier Nick Jones is negotiating with property developer Stanhope for a boutique hotel and club with a rooftop swimming pool at the site of what used to be the BBC Centre in West London -- Stanhope bought the site for £200 million when the BBC moved the location of their headquarters in March this year.

It's All About Location at the Upcoming Soho House Chicago

Where: 113-125 N. Green St., [map], Chicago, IL, United States, 60607

Facing Randolph Street from the rooftop at Soho House Chicago: to the left under the orange awning is Nellcôte with Little Goat across the street at right. Let the chow down begin!

Last January when we shared that the private member boutique Soho House would be coming to the white-hot Chicago hotel scene (watch out, don’t touch!), there was some talk from Crain's Chicago Business about whether the hotel would have trouble drawing guests to its West Loop location -- what it called a "non-traditional neighborhood" for a Chicago hotel.

Despite the location, we had no doubt from the get-go about the potential hotness of Soho House Chicago, based entirely on what we know about the collection. “The Soho House experience is so covetable, if you will,” we wrote, “that luxe scenesters--especially A-list celebrities as well as high-profile artists--will seek out the patented private haven, wherever it may be. We know we will.”

There's more: we recently spent time in the West Loop neighborhood and there's every reason to believe the West Loop location is going to be downright killer -- as hot if not hotter than the likes of the new Hotel Lincoln in unexpected Lincoln Park.

Soho House Toronto to Open This Fall Followed by Mumbai, Chicago, Istanbul and Barcelona

May 29, 2012 at 8:49 AM | by | Comments (0)

Earlier this year, we were excited over the discovery of the future Soho House Chicago but it turns out that Soho House Hotels will expand faster and further than we initially thought.

The company announced yesterday (while we were on vacation, naturally) that the Soho House Toronto will open this fall on Bishops Block in recently restored building from the 1880s. BlogTO.com reports that the house will open on Adelaide Street across from the soon-to-open Shangri-La Hotel on Adelaide St. W.

Soho House, which has always operated pop-up spots during the Toronto International Film Festival, plans to install a rooftop bar, a library, a house kitchen and pantry bar and a main lounge area, named the Pretzel Bell Bar Lounge (after the tavern that originally occupied the space, according to BlogTO.) Sadly, it doesn't look like there will be any hotel rooms here. Booo.
