Soho house group are known for their unique blend of cool club and hot hotel, gathering like-minded creative types together in one place. The latest offering is Soho House Istanbul, a members’ club and hotel, in the arty Beyoğlu district. The 87 room hotel will occupy the grand Palazzo Corpi, originally built for a Genoese family in 1882 and metamorphosing into the US consulate 25 years later. There will also be club lounges, a Cecconi’s restaurant with a courtyard garden, two rooftop pools, a gym, a large screening room, a night club, event spaces, and a Cowshed spa. Sho house say, 'As with all our Houses, our aim in Istanbul will be to assemble a local community of members that have something in common: namely, a creative soul'. Traditionally Soho House members are gleaned from creative fields, such as film, fashion, advertising, music, art and media, no doubt the Istanbul membership will be much the same.
