Following on the recent TikTok trend, here are the cosy corners to embrace your serene, calm, hungover or unhinged self

We all have those strange solitary moments sometimes. Eating your lunch staring into the distance, quietly dissociating in the parked car, sneaking into the local Soho House in your cosy trackpants hoping you could just sit in the corner undisturbed. These moments often pass unnoticed – but thankfully now we have #mousemoments to mark them.  

To clarify, the idea of mouse moments first emerged on TikTok to define that ‘sad or introspective moment when you are forced to eat alone’. The video that sparked the trend appeared on YouTube back in January, titled ‘Mouse eating M&M’s with peaceful music for 10 minutes. (He will keep you company and be your friend)’. It had a huge emotional resonance: people comparing it to a sad kid eating lunch alone or ‘POV: your dad eating alone after everyone else already finished and left the table.’ But a mouse moment is more than just a sad snack. Type the hashtag in and you’ll see a gallery of strange private moments – a spark of realness, an escape from the daily grind, sometimes even a gesture of self-care. 

As all Soho Houses are created to be a ‘home away from home’, don’t hesitate to bring your mouse moments when you visit. Whether you’re suffering from a party season hangover, need a break from work, or want to eat a Dirty Burger curled up alone on a comfy sofa, here are the perfect #mousemoments spots around the Houses.

The post-party mouse moment

Soho House Berlin 


Designed in the Bauhaus style, Soho House Berlin is great for decompressing and relaxing after a big night out. The Store X Studio is a warehouse-style chilled sanctuary where one could just watch the hours go by with a coffee, some snacks and local DJs providing the soundtrack.

The hygge-infused mouse moment
Soho House Copenhagen 


Mouse moment, but make it Nordic in our first Soho House in Scandinavia, which opened this summer. Located in a former Danish customs house and ferry terminal, the building resembles a curved ocean liner. Embrace the calming grainy-blue colour, a waterfront view and a perfect spot on a vintage leather sofa.

The fireside mouse moment
Babington House


The ideal seasonal combo of a mouse moment and a cosy getaway: chill by the fire at the Babington House Library, accompanied by some food prepared with vegetables and herbs from the Walled Garden.

The inner-city mouse moment
180 House 


Need an escape in the middle of London? 180 House is gloriously spacious and has 1970s-style boxy sofas to sink into. Nothing like occupying the whole eight-seater by yourself with a Picante in hand.

The waterside mouse moment
Soho House Amsterdam


There is plenty to choose from in the canalside House in the Dutch capital: a large club space, Cecconi’s, the Cowshed spa and a rooftop terrace with a pool. But maybe make your mouse moment extra by booking a bedroom and chilling in a super king-size bed or a copper bathtub.
