If you’re looking for a stylish place to eat and sleep in Berlin, you could do worse than Soho House, a private, members only club in Mitte that also rents rooms and apartments to the public. It’s in a grand old corner building with a stunning roof top bar and the coziest restaurant and lounge area where I was lucky enough to get an invite for dinner.
The Cookhouse restaurant has a very relaxed ambience with an open plan kitchen alongside the homey lounge area. It feels like a very comforting oversized lounge and kitchen in a private home, with the lounge décor that wouldn’t be out of place in the Hamptons. I felt so comfortable I was working out ways to stay there. Like forever.
After dinner we stepped out of the warm cocoon and headed for the rooftop, where there’s a great bar next to the swimming pool that boasts views across the rooftops of Berlin.
Note: Members have to accompany guests to the club, so the best way in is to actually stay at the hotel, which I certainly recommend.
