With August in full swing, our Houses around the world have hosted an exciting line-up of events – and there’s more to come. This week’s standout moments included two highly anticipated One Night Only dinners in celebration of Babington House’s 25-year anniversary, an epic performance from Kaytranada in Paris, Pride celebrations in Brighton, and more.
Read on to get a glimpse of the action.
Wasted Collective: beach clean-up and conversation, Cities Without Houses Singapore
Last month, our Cities Without Houses Singapore team collaborated with Wasted Collective, a brand that crafts footwear from at least 90% waste material, for a beach clean-up. The event was hosted on East Coast Beach as part of their curated Neighbourhood Clean-Ups.
One Night Only: Ana Ortiz, Babington House
As part of our 25th anniversary celebrations, Babington House hosted local chef Ana Ortiz, the co-director of Country Fire Kitchen, a restaurant that she runs from Somerset with her husband Tom Bray. Set in the Walled Garden, guests enjoyed a special asado feast, which Ortiz cooked in the same style as the food at her restaurant.
Sound Sessions: Kaytranada, Soho House Paris
A year after his epic set during Fashion Week, Canadian DJ and producer Kaytranada returned to our Parisian House for a closing party in the Cabaret Room. French DJ Lorkestra warmed up the crowd, before Kaytranada took over the decks and kept everyone dancing all night.
A night with Factor’s collection, Cities Without Houses Atlanta
Launched in 2020, Factor’s is known for its bespoke tailoring practices, and last week the unisex brand brought its latest capsule collection to Cities With Houses Atlanta members. Guests enjoyed playing pool, listening to classic records and sipping Tip Top cocktails while they shopped.
One Night Only: Lyle’s, Babington House
Chef James Lowe of Lyle’s, a Michelin-starred restaurant in London’s Shoreditch, joined us at Babington House for a One Night Only dinner as part of our 25th anniversary celebrations. The four-course menu featured Gazpacho with melon and anise hyssop, Lobster with trombetta courgetti, and cocktail pairings from No. 3 Gin.
Pride at Brighton Beach House
Brighton Beach House celebrated Pride with an exciting line-up of live music, dancing and entertainment. From house and disco beats by DJ Bestley to live performances by queer collective Polyglamorous and dance music duo NIMMO, the House was one big party. Plus, DJ Jodie Harsh headlined the night with an unforgettable set.
Riddim ‘n’ Rum, Soho House Toronto
For the third year in a row, our House in Toronto closed out Caribana with Riddim ‘n’ Rum, a day party that brought island vibes to the city, and gave members and friends a taste of carnival culture. There were speciality cocktails, signature takeaways, and sounds from Toronto and Montreal’s best DJs.
