SoHo House started in London in 1995, the brainchild of founder and CEO Nick Jones, who wanted a space for people in the film and media worlds to mingle. “Soho House is all about a community of like-minded creative soul people and Brooklyn is where so many have moved over the years,” said Jones. The calendar is filled with member events with the overarching idea to learn something and, possibly, meet someone. Art talks are held in the library and yoga sessions up on the roof.
Dumbo House assimilates nicely into the Brooklyn ecosystem. Everything in the room was carefully curated and designed especially for this location; the menus feature illustrations by a local Dumbo artist. The interior is painted the exact shade of blue of the Manhattan Bridge just off in the distance.
