Soho House Mumbai MUMBAI, INDIA

Set in a 10-storey building directly overlooking Juhu Beach, Mumbai House has 38 bedrooms, a library, members’ floor, gym, rooftop pool, a 34-seat screening room and two restaurants – Cecconi’s Mumbai and The Allis. It is Soho House’s first foray into India, and is set to open in November.

In Soho House Mumbai, almost everything you see, feel and touch was created locally with local craftspeople. We spent a lot of time in India traveling around Bombay and Rajasthan, finding people who would be able to make our Indian dream come true. In the end all the bespoke pieces including furniture, lighting, bespoke block patterned curtains, lampshades, rugs and cushions are made locally. So this house in a way is a celebration of India itself and its colourful, unique and diverse culture.
