The Soho House Bangkok opening is just around the corner and we’ve been counting down the days with a series of pre-launch celebrations for our new local members – from a signature preview dinner to a ‘Baan Soho’ pop-up.
The new House, which is located in the former Eugenia Hotel building in the Sukhumvit neighbourhood, will be open to members soon – and our community of creatives in the city has already been growing. Last week, we introduced a line-up of new Committee members from the Thai capital, all of whom expressed their excitement about creating a strong and inclusive network in their hometown. But what exactly is it about Soho House that appeals to their way of life? Soho House Head of Membership and Communications, Lynn Visudharomn, shares five reasons why Bangkokians will embrace its arrival.
1. A place to connect with liked-minded people
‘Even though Bangkok is known for its variety of restaurants and bars around town, there isn’t a dedicated place that focuses on connecting people. Bangkokians are pretty shy in that regard, but Soho House will bring that sense of community to town.’
2. A door for local creatives to connect with a global network
‘Bangkok’s creative scene is so vibrant. We have both emerging and professional talents who have won many awards in the areas of film, advertising, music, fashion, and food and drink. Soho House Bangkok can help people expand their connections by introducing them to a global network of creatives, which can lead to special projects and collaborations. I’m really excited to see what we can make happen in Bangkok.’
3. A platform to present local talents to an international audience
‘Through sohohouse.com, the SH.APP and our print magazine, we can showcase interesting works from our local members to a wider audience.’
4. Exclusive events
‘We’ll be rolling out lots of special events at Soho House Bangkok, including performances, parties, chef’s tables, and health and wellness activities. We want to surprise our members with exclusive events that they wouldn’t expect.’
5. It marks Bangkok as one of the leading cities in the world
‘Being the first Soho House in Southeast Asia, as well as the third Soho House in Asia, this marks a milestone for Bangkok as one of the top cities in the world. We want to bring that “home away from home” feeling to international members.’
