West London outpost from the Soho House Group with designer digs, a British brasserie, and a members-only bar
In leafy, village-like Chiswick, a 25-minute tube ride from Westminster, High Road House is the Soho House Group's chic west London outpost. The interiors are courtesy of design guru Ilse Crawford, founder of Elle Decoration UK. The lobby's flagstone floors, spotlit ceiling and flickering candles set a calming tone as you step in from busy Chiswick High Road. Whitewashed wood-paneled corridors are lined with heavy brown and black striped carpets and hung with half globe lights from Woka in Austria. The public areas showcase design talent: White balloon lampshades by George Nelson, heavy wooden tables custom-made by Willie Nickerson, and Thorsten Van Elten’s popular hard-back Sorgenfrei chairs.
Bed and Bath
The guestrooms have a Scandi-chic look with sea grass–matted floors and whitewashed wood-paneled walls. Simple pegs and hangers create a space-saving wardrobe on one wall, and they're strung with handy amenities including a hot water bottle and straighteners. Enormous kingsize beds are topped with angora, cashmere and wool duvets, down pillows and handmade woolen blankets. White-tiled bathrooms have rain showers and brilliant Cowshed bath products, and there are well-thought-out little extras everywhere, from the mini Kilner jars full of tea and coffee to the free products you can take away like mouthwash, deodorant and lip balm. Room categories range from the (deceptively spacious) Tiny to the Playroom, which features a freestanding tub in the bedroom.
Settle in for a pre-dinner cocktail at the cozy bar by one of the cast iron Belfort stoves before heading through to the dining room, where hand-printed lino-blocked Marthe Armitage wallpapers cover the walls and complement custom-made benches from George Smith. The downstairs game room has a gentlemen’s club feel, with worn red leather Chesterfields, wooden floors, a pool table and a fussball table; even if you don’t have time to stop in for lunch at the hotel’s brasserie, it’s worth popping in just to check out its beautifully tiled floor. While there’s no gym or spa on-site, you get a free pass to the nearby Hogarth Health Club to use the mood-lit swimming pool, sauna and steam room.
In the Area
Chiswick High Road is packed with eateries such as hipster sourdough pizza joint Franco Manca and Michelin-starred Hedone. And just around the corner, Turnham Green Terrace is home to Charlotte’s Bistro and Foubert’s, an ice cream parlor that has been serving scoops to west Londoners since 1978. With a location so close to the Thames, a riverside stroll and a pint in a waterfront pub are a must. Hole up at the Black Lion, with its roaring fires, cozy candles and cracking food. Fullers Brewery is nearby for a tour and tasting, as are the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew, or browse the boutiques on Devonshire Road, making time to stop in at the three-story antiques emporium The Old Cinema, right next door to the hotel.
