In 1995 the private club Soho House was born. The first one opened its doors in the Soho neighbourhood in London. More than 20 years later the club has 18 Soho Houses around the world. New York, Miami, Chicago, Berlin, Istanbul, Toronto are some of the cities where you can find a Soho House. The main goal is to create most comfortable homes for their members, people working in the creative industries.
“Unlike other members’ clubs, which often focus on wealth and status, we aim to assemble communities of members that have something in common: namely, a creative soul. The majority of our members work in traditional creative industries, with the film, fashion, advertising, music, art and media sectors, among others, heavily represented.”
There are four types of membership available: Local House, Every House, Under 27 Local House and Under 27 Every House. To become a member you first need to be nominated by two existing Soho House members. The price of membership depends on the typ of membership you are interested in. The local house gives you only access to the nearest house. If you are under 27 years old you have a special discount of 50 % until your 30th birthday. You need to apply before turning 27. Being a private club no cameras or recording devices are allowed on the premises.
