Soho House Mumbai With A Traditional Indian Textiles Touch

Soho House opened its first Asian outpost in Mumbai, India, featuring pattern-heavy interiors inspired by regional textiles and crafts. Designed by the brand’s in-house design team, Soho House Mumbai is housed in a refurbished 11-storey building in the city’s affluent Juhu neighbourhood, which is home to a number of Bollywood celebrities.

Featuring 38 guest bedrooms, a cinema, two restaurants, and rooftop pool, the members-only club contains only fixtures and soft furnishings that were either sourced locally or boast traditional Indian patterns. This was because Soho House founder Nick Jones and design director Linda Boronkay wanted to give the venue an aesthetic that authentically represents India through its use of colour and material. Soho House Mumbai is the third new branch that the hospitality brand has opened this year, following Soho House White City in London, which references the building’s former use as the BBC headquarters, and Soho House Amsterdam, which takes cues from the colour palette of Dutch Master paintings. Like other Soho Houses, the rooftop pool is one of the building’s key features. The terrace, which overlooks the popular Juhu Beach, is covered in typical Indian cement tiles. Guests can choose to relax on cane chairs made by local craftspeople, or large daybeds that are shaded by striped awning.

The main lounge area for members is on the eighth floor, featuring sage green walls, dark teak floorboards, and cut-glass chandeliers. Bolder splashes of colour are offered by vermilion velvet sofas and a selection of artworks on display by South East Asian creatives. A cinema is on the first floor, with padded walls upholstered using textiles hand printed in India’s Rajasthan region. On the ground floor are two eateries that are open to the public – Italian restaurant Cecconi’s, which is lined with leafy potted plants, and a more relaxed cafe named The Allis, which is decked out with decorative ceramic tiles.
