Soho House to open first Scottish club in Glasgow

18th August 2023 | Jack Oliver

Soho House is set to open its first Scottish private members club in Glasgow city centre next year.

The four-storey club will have a number of rooms for members to eat, drink and socialise, as well as a roof terrace.

Taking residence in the former Glasgow Parish Council Chambers and Collectors Hall, Soho House’s Glasgow venue forms part of the wider Love Loan urban regeneration programme taking place in the city.

Over the last year, Soho House has built a community in Glasgow through its ‘Cities Without Houses’ membership, which is designed for creatives who travel but do not have a physical Soho House in their city.

Soho House & Co chief executive Andrew Carnie said: “From its renowned School of Art to its rich architectural heritage and the city’s lively music scene, Glasgow has a creative energy that makes it an exciting choice for our first Scottish location.”

The worldwide club operator’s UK reach currently extends to seven sites in London, and two locations in Oxfordshire and Somerset.

Earlier this week, it was reported that despite construction delays at Soho House’s Manchester opening, membership applications are still ahead of expectations. The members club in the old Granada Studios development is now expected to open next year.

It was also reported that the business in the UK and Europe had had its strongest post-Pandemic quarter in the three months to the end of July. Soho House said this was due to the return of US tourists and improvements in its food offering.
