To ensure the safety and well-being of both our members and teams, we are implementing all the appropriate health and safety measures in line with government regulations.
Keeping you safe
To keep everyone safe and healthy, our team members will be wearing appropriate protection while at work, and you will notice screens installed at the member desks.
We have increased disinfection and cleaning of all high-contact surfaces, including tables, bars, and door handles.
If you’re feeling unwell
If you or your guest are feeling unwell, please do not visit the House.
On arrival, we ask you to use hand sanitiser provided by us, which is also available throughout the House.
In the House
We have rearranged areas in the House to ensure that there is more space for you, and facilitated one-way traffic wherever possible.
Paying your bill
The Houses are cashless, so please ensure you pay by card or via House Pay, which can be activated in the SH.APP. For more information on House Pay, click here
Member check-in and guests
House Visits are required for visiting a rooftop with a pool. You can book time slots to visit the House directly through the Events section on the SH.APP. At this time, we will not be able to permit access to the Roof for members without a House Visit.
It’s important that we know who is spending time at our Houses, so you will need to register your guests directly through the ‘Invite a Guest’ function in the SH.APP.
To ensure we can accommodate as many members as possible under the new social-distancing guidelines, you are only permitted to bring one guest to the House. Extended guest lists will not be possible at the moment. We will notify you as soon as this changes.
Children count as your plus-one unless they have child membership.
Restaurant reservations are now available via the SH.APP for tables of up to six people.
