Soho House welcomes its newest club and hotel to Miami this Fall with the opening of Soho Beach House, the brandâ€™s third North American property. Located in Mid-Beach, just north of South Beach, the oceanfront property will be both a club for private members and boutique hotel open to the public. Soho Beach House will also include a Cowshed Spa and a Cecconiâ€™s restaurant, both open to the public.
Soho Beach House is located on the site of the historic art-deco Sovereign Hotel, which has been redesigned and expanded to include a 16-story oceanfront tower. The 50 hotel guest rooms, ranging from 350-1500 square feet, offer ocean and bay views and feature antique furniture, king-sized beds, Samsung 40â€ flat screen TVâ€™s, iPod docks, drinks cabinets and rainforest showers with signature Cowshed products. A select group of rooms boast free standing bathtubs and private terraces overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Other members and hotel guest areas include a Screening Snug, Drawing Room, indoor-outdoor bars and dining areas with lush gardens, two pools and a beach club area with full waiter service. www.sohobeachhouse.com
â€œThe first time I stepped foot in Miami I was blown away by the sexy vibe, the beautiful art deco buildings and incredible beaches â€“ I knew instantly I wanted to bring a Soho House there” said Soho House founder Nick Jones. â€œWe have created properties in New York and LA, and introducing flip flop glamour to Miami seemed like the natural next step for us. The Beach House is just north of the South Beach strip. It is a place where I hope our members and guests will meet, sleep and definitely play…I am incredibly excited about throwing our doors open this fall â€“ itâ€™s going to be fun.â€
Soho Beach House was envisioned by Nick Jones together with designer Martin Brudnizki, whose resume boasts Cecconiâ€™s West Hollywood, Londonâ€™s Scottâ€™s, The Club at the Ivy and J Sheekey Oyster Bar. Using inspiration from Miami Beach history, the property will have a South American style while offering a taste of the brandâ€™s characteristic, unpretentious European glamour.
Bedrooms at Soho Beach House are available in six different sizes. With South American influences, all bedrooms are decorated with one-off pieces of antique furniture and feature king-size beds and rainforest showers stocked with Cowshed products. Most of the bedrooms overlook the ocean or waterways while a number have freestanding baths and private terraces. The entire property offers complimentary Wi-Fi and select floors have a computer nook with Macs for guests.
