We’re opening Soho House Istanbul, a members’ club and hotel, in the Beyoğlu district at the end of 2014. Soho House will occupy the grand Palazzo Corpi, which was originally built for a Genoese family in 1882 and then became the US consulate 25 years later. In addition to extensive club spaces, it will have 87 bedrooms, 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.
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. The majority of our members work in traditional creative fields, with the film, fashion, advertising, music, art and media sectors, among others, heavily represented.
