The Luxe List 2019: Soho House Mumbai

Click image to view full size

The first Asian outpost of British-born members’ club Soho House, whose 22 locations across Europe and North America are a magnet for globetrotting creative types, this 11-story beachside property in the affluent Juhu neighborhood melds Indian-inspired style with the ambiance of a boho-chic London townhouse. Members flock to the rooftop bar, where excellent cocktails—masala vermouth sours, anyone?—come with views of the glittering Arabian Sea, and enormous beds in the poolside striped cabanas are an invitation to linger. Downstairs, the 38 individually decorated rooms (book those with a sea view) feature a charming mix of antique timber and bone inlay furniture, woven-cane chairs, block-printed Rajasthani fabric, and lampshades made from saris. Dining here isn’t just a members-only affair: ground-floor Allis café welcomes the public, as does Italian restaurant Cecconi’s, which serves cicchettis mall plates and signatures like lobster spaghetti. If you can, choose a table on the breezy, Venetian-style seafront terrace open for dinners and sumptuous Sunday brunches. Soho House also has a 32-seater private cinema kitted out with plush velvet armchairs, and though it might be located in Juhu where the film stars live, the place has wisely distanced itself from the city’s Bollywood scene.
