The London List Abroad: Soho House opens its latest outpost in a 19th century Palazzo in Istanbul, TurkeyThe London List

By Sam Bathe on 25 Jun 2015



Already counting London, Berlin, New York, Chicago, Miami and more amongst their locations, the latest Soho House outpost takes over a stunning 19th century Palazzo in the Beyoglu district in Istanbul. Once the home of the US embassy and later US consulate, Soho House Istanbul is their largest to date with the four building complex offering 87 rooms, numerous bars, a spa, fine dining restaurant and two rooftop pools. Interior designers were inspired by Istanbul’s unique blend of old and new, with original features and traditional rugs matched with more modern furniture and striking Turkish tiles. Clever planning sees a co-working space in the Playroom turn into a ping pong room by night, while the Palazzo’s rooftop bar and pool offers magnificent views of the Golden Horn.
