We’re celebrating 20 years in North America, and you’re invited
From new openings to landmark events, the month of September is all about giving back to the members who've made the past two decades of Soho House in the US

Since 2003, when we opened our first House in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District, we’ve expanded to 14 Houses in North America’s most important cities, from LA and Miami to Nashville and Austin. Soho House Toronto celebrates its 11th year this month, while Chicago turned nine in August. Our base of trailblazing members has expanded too, with a host of creatives across the country forming the network that makes our Houses truly unique.
To celebrate two decades of imagination and innovation in North America, we’ve launched a series of initiatives across the month of September. In addition to our USA 20 campaign, we’re marking the significant milestone with a host of special events, including the Soho House Awards, which took place for the first time at DUMBO House in New York. Watch this space for more.
This month, we will open Soho House Mexico City, with Soho House Portland coming later in the year and Soho House São Paulo to follow soon after. But why are we doing all of this? The short answer is: for the people who make Soho House in North America so special. Without you, our extraordinary members, we would be nothing.
Soho House in North America is so many things, to many people, in many places. In West Hollywood, we are a place for members to meet and innovate. In Nashville, we are a safe space for the drag community, who increasingly find themselves under fire. And in New York, we are a cornerstone of the city that never sleeps: we are a hive of connection for creative leaders at Meatpacking; a downtime destination with a killer view at DUMBO; and at Ludlow House, we are a unique urban retreat.
‘We have gorgeous Houses in some incredible cities and locations, but the members are what make each location special,’ says Soho House Chief Membership Officer, Markus Anderson. ‘Twenty years ago, few North Americans knew of us. New York was the obvious first stop, but the road hasn’t always been a smooth one. Two decades on, it remains a home for the incredible creatives that call Gotham City home.’
So why not sit back, grab a Soho Sunset (our new signature Stateside cocktail) and dive into our month-long USA 20 campaign, which will celebrate everything about Soho House in North America, from our members to our Houses.
