Staying in the Soho House feels a bit like renting a contemporary-cool apartment in Berlin, with such amenities as a spa, bar and rooftop pool.

  • The scene at the rooftop pool restaurant/bar/lounge
  • The relaxing Cowshed Spa
  • The historic details and references in the rooms’ decor
  • The Store, a 30,000-square-foot concept store located on the ground floor that is open to the public and members


Located on the edge of Berlin's hip Mitte neighborhood, this private club has a screening room, spa, restaurant, bar and rooftop pool. Accommodations are spacious and outfitted with such elegantly cool furnishings as velvet tufted headboards and mirrored-glass Art Deco style coffee tables. The building's previous life as a late Bauhaus-era department store remains evident in the many large windows, exposed brickwork and high ceilings. Whimsical (though not always working) amenities include vintage record players, radios and rotary telephones, alongside modernized features like heated bathroom floors, large rain showers and Bose sound systems. The bathroom is stocked with delicious-smelling, full-size, organic Cowshed amenities.

Walking into the cozy downstairs Cowshed spa feels like going to visit a friend's house. Before treatments, guests sit at a dining room table stacked high with magazines, newspapers and pitchers of cucumber- and lemon-infused water. Massage treatments are exceptional and very reasonably priced.

Created by Alex Eagle, The Store is more of a showroom than a concept store and offers much more than fashion. You can find food and fresh pressed juices at the Store Kitchen’s organic café, music in the record shop, literature in the library and beautiful bright flowers from florist Mary Lennox.

The restaurant on the seventh floor and the bar and pool on the eighth boast fabulous views of Berlin's TV Tower and serves an excellent breakfast though the dinner menu can be skipped in favor of Berlin's many other excellent eateries. The Soho House brand's iconic restaurant, Cecconi's, is located on the ground floor and serves cozy Italian fare in an elegant dining room with red leather booths.

The one caveat to know is that service can fall short, and everything takes about ten times as long as it should. It is also worth knowing that while located in the hip Mitte, Soho House is a good 10 minute walk from the center of the action. Casa Camper and Lux 11 have better locations in this neighborhood for those who don't want to be walking too far for dinner or shopping.
