Converted factory turned hipster members club and hotel in London's East End with a year-round rooftop pool
Occupying a converted biscuit factory and neighboring pub in a street-art-strewn East End alleyway, Shoreditch House is a members club and hipster hotel with a rooftop pool overlooking London's skyscraper-studded skyline. A rough-hewn industrial aesthetic runs through the property, from the exposed brickwork to the beaten copper bar and chunky lighting. The open-plan communal lounges have a cozy lived-in look, with battered leather sofas and parquet flooring, while the rooftop terrace is styled like an urban beach resort complete with a Mediterranean restaurant, poolside bar and secret garden.
Bed and Bath
The definition of crash pad, the 26 guestrooms are small (categories range from Tiny to Small+ and start at 172 square feet) but cunningly designed to make the most of the space, and they have a beach house feel, with seagrass flooring and New England–style painted wood paneling and window shutters. There are rows of wooden pegs in place of wardrobes, and swing doors that lead through to petite white-tiled shower rooms stocked with full-size Cowshed products (from the ground-floor Cowshed spa). As with other Soho House hotels, the devil is very much in the details, and handy room amenities include hair straighteners, flip-flops, umbrellas, tea and coffee, homemade shortbread and an excellent bathroom kit including cleanser, mouthwash, ear plugs and lip balm.
Head up to the fifth floor to lounge on a velvet sofa in the sitting room, play ping-ping and pose in the game room or grab a drink at the copper bar. Reasonably priced food is available from an open kitchen and deli (roasted pork belly, flat iron chicken), and there's a juice bar for health-conscious hipsters. The sixth-floor is home to a pool (open year-round until 10 p.m. every day), a restaurant with a wood-fired oven and wraparound views of East London's skyline, and a lantern-lit secret garden with open fires, an herb garden and a retractable roof. The fancy fitness room is decorated with vintage sports memorabilia on brick walls; hit the treadmill and then make an appointment at the neighboring parlor for a post-workout blow-dry or an old-school gentleman's grooming treatment.
In the Area
Dine on fancy French fare at Les Trois Garçons, a kooky restaurant crammed full of antiques and taxidermy. For on-the-go snacks, hit the food court at Boxpark, opposite the hotel, a pop-up mall made of stacked freight containers, or grab a $5 salt beef bagel from Brick Lane’s 24-hour Beigel Bake. Local drinking dens range from hipster gastropubs (Owl & Pussycat, Well and Bucket, Crown and Shuttle) to chic cocktail lounges (Loungelover, Callooh Callay). The pick of London’s weekend markets are all within walking distance. Hit Broadway Market’s food stalls for locally baked cakes and Vietnamese coffee, Columbia Road for colorful flowers and cute Victorian houses turned trendy housewares shops, and Spitalfields for jewelry, arty prints and vintage threads.
