Why Soho House?
An international hotel chain and a member’s only club, the Soho House in Mumbai is Asia’s first. Started first in Soho, London, the hotels and member only clubs are now open to public and pride themselves on catering to the ‘creative soul’.
Overlooking the Arabian Sea and located in a breezy 11-storey building , the Soho House Mumbai offers its patrons a rooftop pool & bar, a stocked library, a 34 seat cinema hall and a restaurant ‘Cecconi’s as well as 38 hotel rooms. The hotel room and the restaurant are both open to non-members, unlike other facilities offered here.
“The unique feel comes in the shape of block-printed fabrics from Rajasthan; handwoven cane furniture; environmentally sustainable, sari-coated lampshades; and some 200 art pieces by mostly South Asian artists, including Bharti Kher and Subodh Gupta.” Time magazine wrote.
Soho House is a beautiful sprawling property and if you live in Mumbai, you should definitely give the place a visit. The natural vibe and the unique grandeur of the place is worth experiencing.
