1. Best for culture: Soho House Istanbul
2. Best for nightlife: Soho Beach House Miami
When it comes to sun-drenched getaways, Soho Beach House Miami is the ultimate go big or go home. Located in a restored historic Sovereign Hotel dating back to the 1940s, the design of the House is inspired by the Cuban Art Deco heritage of the era. It’s all about merging the indoor and outdoor: expansive spaces flowing from street-facing entry to the pool, garden, and ocean. The bedrooms feature tiled floors, leather armchairs and raw concrete beams softened with patterned textiles and jewel-toned velvet sofas. And in the Ocean rooms, you’ll find floor to ceiling windows and large terraces with sea views. Rooftop sunsets are a must: Ocho on the eighth floor has a bar and plunge pool to round off the experience. Miami Art Basel, which runs from 1 to 3 December, is also around the corner – so get booking now.
3. Best for seclusion: Soho Beach House Canouan
If you prefer a paradise-like secluded location to Champagne-fuelled art parties and busy cities, we get you. Soho Beach House Canouan sits on a small island in St Vincent and the Grenadines, a 50-minute flight from Barbados. Set on Grand Bay Beach in the heart of Canouan, the House has 40 bedrooms, a restaurant, a deli, a boutique, and a fitness studio. The sheer existence here is bliss: the endless azure waters, the greenery, the pristine beach… Plus, all your favourite Soho House features still in place: from emperor-size beds to chilled Picantes.
4. Best for art spotting: Holloway House, Los Angeles
Opened in 2020, Holloway House is our third members’ club in Los Angeles – but it’s a truly special one. It offers an escape into the world inspired by LA’s mid-century art scene. The interior draws from the Southern California landscape and the art movement in the 1950s and 1960s, including artists such as Ed Ruscha and David Hockney. Imbued with warm tones of sand and stone, as well as bright accents of burgundy leather, the environment is both inspiring and calming.
5. Best for partying: Soho House Tel Aviv, Jaffa
Tel Aviv draws endless visitors by way of its vibrant cultural and party scene, architectural heritage and the steady growth of its creative industries. Soho House Tel Aviv, Jaffa is located in a turreted building dating back to 1883. The House overlooks the Mediterranean Sea and is a perfect starting point for exploring the city. There is plenty to discover within the club, too: an outdoor dining and lounge space dotted with 300-year-old olive trees and a bespoke curve-edged swimming pool, as well as an events space hosting gigs and DJ sets. Curious for more? Here’s your 24-hour guide to Tel Aviv.
6. Best for food: Soho House Barcelona
Whether you’ve been a dozen times or you’re heading to Barcelona for a one-off break, it’s a place that can (and should) be discovered time and again. Also, feel free to stop exploring for a second and just chill, enjoy the sunshine, and get to know the local creative scene. Soho House Barcelona is situated within an 18th-century building in the city’s Gothic Quarter overlooking Marina Port Vell – so you’ll get the best of both the city and the wide-open sea. The decor was inspired by classic Catalan design, with gothic architecture influences, double-height vaulted ceilings and bedrooms with a contemporary rustic look. Don’t forget to take a trip to Little Beach House Barcelona in the sleepy bay of Garraf for an extra dose of sun and sea away from the city buzz.
