The new hotel from Soho House

If anyone can be truly credited with surfing the swell of the recession, it’s Nick Jones – CEO and founder of the impossibly successful Soho House group – which, at last count, laid claim to six members clubs, eight restaurants - including the much-lauded East London bolthole, Pizza East – and as of this month, one fully functioning hotel.

With 39 bedrooms ranging from the self-styled ‘tiny’ through to ‘bigger’, and every space boasting an intriguingly titled ‘rainforest shower’, the townhouse will undoubtedly prove a welcome addition to pooped Soho House revelers needing a room for the night, thanks to its stumble-worthy proximity to the club’s Greek Street locale.

If taking a room seems a tad excessive, however, and you’d rather wait for the first tube home, we’d recommend sticking around to try a plateful of the Townhouse’s unequivocally good English grub. From Dorset Crab and Baked cod through to truly decadent cream teas and full Sunday roasts – you’ll be pepped up and back on the Bloody Mary’s before you can say Cirrhosis. Teo van den Broeke
