Soho’s iconic Roundhouse will reopen as Soho Residence
Soho’s iconic Roundhouse has undergone a full and fantastic £1m restoration and will reopen as Soho Residence, the premier bar, club and lounge space in London’s West End.
Opening on November 30th with a capacity of 350 and spread across three floors at 83-85 Wardour Street, the magnificent Soho Residence is the most exciting and anticipated new venue Soho has seen in decades.
Erected in 1892, the Roundhouse building itself has previously existed as blues and skiffle clubs, welcoming celebrated performers from around the world. Its latest and greatest incarnation as Soho Residence will continue this rich tradition by offering the ultimate night out experience in a venue of unrivalled elegance and grace.
This uncompromisingly restored space, formerly known as The O Bar, offers an opulent gin parlour for the discerning drinker, a botanical cocktail bar with world class service and a warm, relaxed atmosphere throughout. Housed in Soho’s most famous and historic landmark, and with DJs providing a classy soundtrack, this chic and sleek new venue will be open until 3am Monday to Saturday, and 12:30am on Sundays.
The ritzy ground floor Botanical Bar of Soho Residence boasts a hint of art deco style with enormous windows allowing light to flood in, a fresh botanical feel, hanging plants and banquette seating, plus plump cushions and a plush Soho vibe, all complemented by professional service and contemporary cocktails that dazzle with their fun, flair and flavour.
The basement Festival Club is a place to be mischievous with high-end lighting, big screen imaging and a selection of craft beers and cocktails that will welcome the capital’s glitterati for nights of grown-up fun and late night partying.
Lastly, the first floor Gin Parlour has high ceilings and tall windows which direct your gaze down to the bustling streets of Soho below as well as snug sofas and sumptuous fabrics, all in a cosmopolitan and carefully curated space designed to make you feel like a million dollars. This floor and the Festival Club are both available for private hire.
Soho Residence is the most adventurous and exciting new development to hit the West End in many years and this artfully realised vision of a venue is set to become the most talked about and must visit destination in London.
Soho Residence will soft launch on Friday 30th November. For more information and bookings head to sohoresidence.co.uk
