Terrible Experience – Cool idea of a private club in a brownstone with each floor having a different theme...BUT
I will not be going back there, EVER. Had set reservations for dining in the main dining room and they kept us waiting for over 2 hours. We were told large party came in 1.5 hours past their set reservation and apparently they were more important. We didn't start eating until after 11pm at which point they turned the dining room into a night club. The Manager was very condescending and no respect for our comfort. Cool place but crappy management and staff. You can have it!
A London-style members-only social club situated in the $12 million Norwood mansion. – In Short
The multi-level haven to socialites and the pocket square-wearing lads who love them is as extravagant inside as you'd expect. Membership allows guests wandering rights throughout the brownstone--in the high-ceilinged first floor lounge, the lantern-lit back garden, or the swankier third floor bar area--which provides plenty of space for aristocrats to play catch-up on such highfalutin' activities as deer hunting in Scotland. Prompt service is a plus, although considering the thousands of dollars paid annually by individual members for the right to sip $20 glasses of champagne, it feels less impressive.
Hits: The atmosphere may be stuffy, but the house is beautiful all the same, decorated with a balance of antiques and modern art.
Misses: It's said to have been established as part of a backlash against the Soho House for becoming too easy to get into, which begs the question: Where's the pool?
