The House will have two floors of club space, a rooftop pool and bar, cinema, screening room, 24,000 sq ft gym, and 45 bedrooms within the building’s original Grade-II listed central ring.

On the 10th floor is a rooftop swimming pool and bar, while the 9th floor is the main members’ space.

The Games Room has a large Billiards table, adjoining a bar and a specially made resin Terazzo floor, inset with brass, which runs through the whole floor.

There’s a large open kitchen, with an East meets West menu, with Asian inspired food as well as healthy plant-based dishes and Soho House favourites.

The main eating space looks out over White City, with mid-century style tables and chairs, a bar with 60’s designed furniture and fabrics by Tebor.

The 45 bedrooms range from sizes Tiny to Large, over the 2nd and 3rd floor of the Grade-II listed Helios building.

Each room has George Nelson lamps, mid-century Terrazzo tables and reading lights, fluted timber wardrobes and modernist wooden minibars, with original exposed concrete support beams on the ceilings. The bathrooms have circular patterned tiles inspired by BBC designs, and a full range of Cowshed products.

House Gym, the largest Soho House gym to date, sits in the basement of the Helios Building, with state-of-the-art equipment, studios and a swimming pool with steam room, sauna and hammam, as well as a juice bar.

The ground floor of White City House is open to the public. The Allis serves food and drinks from morning to night. The lounge and bar, which originated at Soho House Chicago, has an outdoor terrace and an open kitchen.

In the basement, Electric Cinema White City has two screens, each with rows of velvet armchairs, footstalls and cashmere blankets.
