Exciting news from The Herald this week – the globally renowned Soho House is planting its luxurious roots in Glasgow.

Planning on a strategic expansion, both domestically and internationally, Soho House is all set to unveil its maiden venture in Scotland. This elite club will nestle in a four-storey, heritage-rich city centre property, offering its members an unparalleled blend of exclusivity and luxury.

Sneak peek of what awaits at Soho House Glasgow:

What’s the Buzz around Soho House?

Established as a sanctuary for the creatively-inclined, Soho House has long been the go-to spot for innovators to unwind, network, and flourish. Inaugurated by the visionary Nick Jones in 1995 in Soho, London, it was pitched as the quintessential “creative’s retreat.” From there, its reach has ballooned, now boasting over 175,000 global members with a staggering 95,000 hopefuls on the waiting list.

Beyond its members, Soho House is celebrated for its eclectic offerings – from chic restaurants and tranquil spas to functional workspaces and plush cinemas. The brand’s footprint spans significant metropolises like New York, Rome, Hong Kong, and Berlin. And the expansion march continues with soon-to-open venues in Mexico City, Portland, Sao Paulo, and a planned debut in Manchester by 2024.

Soho House Glasgow’s Historic Locale

An architectural gem awaits Soho House in Scotland. The George Street’s erstwhile Parish Halls building, a majestic red sandstone construction from 1900, will house the new venue. Designed by the illustrious Thomson & Sandilands, this Edwardian Baroque masterpiece offers panoramic views of the Glasgow City Chambers.

This refurbishment aligns with the ambitious £100 million Love Loan urban development initiative, aimed at reimagining George Square’s north-eastern edge.

What’s on Offer?

Soho House Glasgow promises an enriching experience for those in the creative realm. Members can look forward to an array of dining, mingling, and relaxation spaces, crowned with a picturesque roof terrace.

A recent event held atop The Schoolhouse building in Kinning Park saw the city’s creative luminaries, including Jamie Genevieve, Barrington Reeves, and Sanjeev Kohli, get an early taste of the luxury that awaits, complete with a gourmet three-course dinner curated by Soho House’s UK Executive Chef, Nathanial Tofan.
