Your ultimate guide to hiring a space at Soho House
Whether you’re looking to host a party, meeting, wedding or supper club, we have just the place
Wednesday 12 October 2022 By Anastasiia Fedorova
Soho House was created as a place where people can come together. Our dining rooms, club spaces, bars, cosy living rooms and spacious lofts have seen a great number of parties and drink receptions, supper clubs and lunch meetings that just can’t help but run late into the afternoon. For something extra special, we’ve opened up our Houses to those who’d like to host an event of their own.
With a choice of 20 sites and 60 different spaces in the UK, we’ve got the right size and atmosphere for a plethora of events – whether you’re after an intimate spot for a dinner party or planning a big celebration. Our private event spaces can host up to 350 people, with bespoke options for sound, lighting and decor.
Spaces can be hired by both members and non-members for work and play, day and evening occasions.
All you have to do is submit your request, however bespoke. But first, check out some of our private hire options below.
Meetings and presentations
Soho House meeting spaces are equipped with all the latest technology you might need for video calls and presentations, while still retaining the level of comfort and design you can enjoy around the Houses. With catering options and a steady supply of coffee, it’s the ideal environment to get things done. There are locations to choose from all around London: Loft spaces at Soho Works Shoreditch and 180 House or large meeting rooms at White City House, to name just a few.
Inherently designed to accommodate members’ 24/7 lifestyle, Soho House locations are great for organised away days. Start with a coffee on the terrace followed by a brainstorming session, a light lunch and a walk to get some inspiration. Then, host a round of talks, before grabbing drinks to finish off the day’s achievements. Babington House in Somerset, Soho Farmhouse in Oxfordshire or Brighton Beach House on the coast each have a unique character and facilities.
Panel talks and screenings
Discussions and screenings are just the thing for thought-provoking social gatherings and events that bring a community together. At Soho House, we have four screening rooms to choose from: White City House and Babington House, Redchurch Street and Electric Cinema Portobello. Featuring plush comfy seats, cashmere blankets and a fully equipped bar, they can accommodate between 30 to 80 people. Large Houses like 180 House and White City House also have event spaces for presentations and talks for bigger audiences.
Lunches and dinners
Hosting a lunch or dinner is truly a form of art. With all the meticulously planned out details and warm welcoming atmosphere, it could be intimate or extravagant, quiet or roaring with a celebratory spirit. Our classic dining rooms at Soho House 40 Greek Street, Dean Street Townhouse, or Electric House will leave your guests with plenty of memories to take home. Feeling generous? Hire out the spacious Glasshouse at Soho Farmhouse.
We can accommodate all types of requests, so get in touch and our team will find the right space for you
Parties and drinks receptions
Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, an anniversary, a new career milestone, an opening, or having a yearly gathering of colleagues, supporters and collaborators, we can help you find a suitable space for it. Soho House Lofts at 180 The Strand, White City or Brighton Beach House are multifunctional event spaces that can be hired separately or together as a takeover. Our spacious, signature designed rooms are ideal for hosting drinks, dinners and ambitious gatherings for up to 200 or 300 people. Little House Mayfair is also available to hire as a full House takeover on Sundays, while Kettner’s is ideal for a Champagne afternoon. The options are endless – read more about hosting your party at Soho House here.
Whether you prefer a classic countryside wedding or something with a contemporary flair, Babington House is our ultimate favourite. It has a variety of rooms for hire, including The Log Room for an intimate dinner by the fireplace, and The Orangery for a larger gathering, with scenic grounds and the Walled Garden to share a few glasses of Champagne. These days, the happy yet admin-heavy occasions come in all shapes and sizes (take these six couples who tore up the wedding rule book) – but we’re here for them all.
