Soho House was founded in London, in 1995, as a private members’ club for those in the creative industries to share ideas, comfort, and workspace. Soho House has since expanded to include locations across Europe and North America, as well as restaurants, cinemas, spas and hotels.
Soho House New York is in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District. Covering six floors, it is built over 45,000 square feet of an old warehouse building. The club offers extensive facilities, among them are the Restaurant, Club Bar, Drawing Room, Pantry Bar, a 44-seat cinema and a heated rooftop pool. In addition, Soho House New York holds 26 bedrooms – each individually designed.
Soho House hasn’t found its claim to fame through its numbers and bespoke spaces alone, however. Here are 5 reasons why Soho House New York will sky-rocket your career long after you have completed your training:
