Industrial charm, poolside afternoons and live gigs – your journey to Music City starts here

Monday 15 August 2022   By Anastasiia Fedorova

Nashville is pretty legendary. Wherever you are in the world, the name immediately evokes the rich history of country music, cowboy boots and the warm neon lights of late-night bars. Still, there is much more to Nashville than its globally-renowned delights: a bourgeoning art movement, independent stores, a contemporary food scene – and, of course, the comfort and the buzz of Soho House Nashville – to name but a few. 

Recently, supermodel and musician Karen Elson talked us through her 15-year love affair with the city, citing its warm community feel, abundance of ‘closet musicians’ and Honky Tonks (country music bars) as personal highlights. Like many Nashville residents and guests, she agrees the Southern staple has ‘big city energy’, but still possesses the warm and relaxed pace of a smaller town. This happy medium is what makes Nashville a perfect destination: whether you’re keen to kickstart the party, soak up the local history or chill by the pool, Music City is the place to do it, making a trip to Soho House Nashville mandatory.

Located in a former sock factory – built in the early 1900s and known for producing hosiery for astronauts travelling to the moon – the House reflects both the city’s industrial and music heritage. Here’s a look at all it has to offer: including three indoor and outdoor performance spaces, a pool, garden, fully-equipped gym and screening room.

Architecture and interiors 


The House design was influenced by the European creative movements of the first half of the 20th century, including Bauhaus-inspired geometric patterns, with bold industrial finishes and bespoke fixtures that pay homage to the building’s history. In a nod to the building’s original verdigris copper doors, light teal tones run through the House, creating a rich colour connection throughout the spaces. 
The Club – complete with 360 central bar connecting the inside with the outdoor terrace – and Sock Room (which hosts music, live entertainment and members’ events) are the House’s main spaces. Both feature bespoke pieces of furniture and incorporate designs from local artisans, such as the lamps in the Sock Room that are made from industrial machine parts from the old factory. 
And let us not forget the summer gem – an outdoor swimming pool with pistachio-coloured sun loungers and a designated restaurant and bar.

The bedrooms 


Each of the 47 bedrooms – which range in size from cosy to large, over three floors – is decorated with an oversized chandelier and an industrial metal work screen that separates the main space and the bathrooms. Designed to feel welcoming, they feature woven tapestries made with bespoke, locally-designed fabric crafted specifically for the House. Oh, and did we mention the extra-comfy beds with grand headboards in velvet, leather, or fabric and burlwood? Perfect for those lazy morning afters when you’ve been hitting the local bars the night before.
