Soho House adds Little House

25 Apr

The Soho House Group has launched a new London club, Little House Mayfair.

The new club is located on one floor of a quiet corner in Mayfair (2 Queen Street), close to Curzon Street, Shepherd Market, and Green Park tube.  Open for breakfast until late every night, the House offers members a cosy new private space for eating, drinking, working and meeting.

Soho House says the focus in Mayfair will be on a reduced and refined selection of drinking and dining choices, with less emphasis on events and facilities. Whilst the venue offers the signature vintage furniture, booths and bespoke art collection that members have come to expect from the group’s properties, there are a few extra touches such as a piano for live music and traditional leather panelling.

The club’s signature “little menu” draws inspiration from New York and Italy with a small, seasonal menu on offer.
