Lounging on Retro Furniture in New York City
Cool Britannia in the heart of New York's buzzing Meatpacking District, the Manhattan outpost of London media club, Soho House New York, is the epitome of urban sophistication. The rooms are understated and chic, with an exciting mix of contemporary and retro furniture and a wow factor: music starts the moment we stepped through the door, activated by motion sensors, and there was an iPod dock hooked up to the surround sound so we could play our own music. A massive wall-mounted plasma screen was on hand, in case we could tear ourselves away from the breathtaking view. On the roof terrace bar, cocktails flow and well-dressed thirtysomethings lay on day beds around the pool.
