Shoreditch / Brick Lane, London –
Occupying the top three floors of an otherwise nondescript warehouse building, Shoreditch House is an exclusive members-only club that offers celebrities and jet-setters a chance to unwind in comfort.
The ground floor reception area is marked by a modern design and soft lighting, perfect for the bleary-eyed rock stars and their hangers-on to stumble in and elevate to the fourth floor, a cavernous private party space large enough to accommodate 150 people and its own bowling alley.
During office hours, chic advertising execs and successful artists tend to head to the fifth floor to check out the aptly named Square Bar or take a meeting in The Sitting Room, which features high-back retro chairs and plenty of natural light. When the day is done, this floor also lets weary workhorses retreat to the Games Room where they can play a little pool or channel their inner child with some foosball.
But the biggest draw, especially on a rare sunny day, is the club’s rooftop. Home to a glass-enclosed bar, restaurant, and lounge, this pricey perch allows those hungry from a day of nonstop deal-making to grab a wicker chair, sidle up to one of the candlelit tables, and linger over dishes like cheeseburgers, risotto, and baby squid.
Afterwards, the affluent A-listers head to the adjacent pool or relax in the garden area’s Lazy Lawn, a lush green paradise featuring beds where tired travelers can take in the surrounding skyline from a full recline.
A fiercely private hangout where the famous remain undisturbed, and discreet but indulgent revelry is the norm, Shoreditch House offers understated luxury and peerless elegance in one of London’s hottest neighborhoods.
