Spring is in the air, so it's the perfect time for the Soho House to update its members on the latest and greatest with the club's coveted rooftop. It seems that the members only club will be undergoing a complete renovation this year and they started with the roof, meaning when members arrive for the season, they will find a new bar, sun loungers, towels, new flooring, and the old gym has been banished to somewhere else in the building.
There are also a whole slew of new rules for guests that are sure to upset both members and the freeloaders who either weren't offered or don't want to pay for a membership. This summer, members will only be allowed one guest before 5 PM on weekends and holidays. Normal guest rules apply during all other times. This one is sure to upset a lot of people who enjoy inviting all of their closest friends to enjoy a day at the pool.
As for the kiddies, Soho House is dedicating every Sunday from 8 AM until 11:30 AM for "Sunday Family Hours", a time when the club's roof will be only available to Child Members. Don't worry, their parents are allowed to come too. But what about those parents who are members but their kids weren't cool or artistic enough to warrant a child membership, can they still go to Sunday Family Hours? Absolutely not. The House says that anyone that isn't a Child Member is not permitted on the Roof and this year and that the Soho House "will not automatically renew any children’s memberships." You better hope your kids maintained their popularity since summer 2010! Also note that child memberships are capped at 250 in New York, so you better act fast if you want to get one of these coveted slots.
