The Latest Hotspot in Brooklyn: Dumbo House

Soho House’s first Brooklyn location, the DUMBO House is now open for established members and is the process of taking applications for new members.

The DUMBO House is taking up residence in a 19th century coffee-making warehouse in Brooklyn Bridge Park, with Cecconi’s occupying the first floor and the rest of the club spread across the second floor. The building is also home to Brooklyn Bridge Park’s Empire Stores, a sprawling space already occupied by high-end retail shops, offices, and restaurants.

Marked by its amazing views of the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges, the DUMBO House interior and exterior were designed by a team that included architects David Adjaye, Zoe Buckman, and Steven Siegel.

Both Cecconi’s and the club house will offer views of Brooklyn Bridge Park, the East River and downtown Manhattan, along with the club’s signature bougie mismatched but upscale furnishings.

This is Soho House’s third location in New York. Founded by Nick Jones in London in 1995 as a private club for creatives, there are now 18 houses globally.

The exterior pays tributes to its surroundings with slate blue walls inspired by the color of the Manhattan bridge and brown marble table tops that mimic that of the Brooklyn Bridge. In addition to the amazing view, the DUMBO location includes a restaurant, club bar, library, an outdoor terrace and rooftop with a pool.


DUMBO House is located at 55 Water Street in Brooklyn. Membership annually for a single location is $2,100 and $1,600 for anyone 27 or under. You can apply here. (In order to be considered you will need the recommendation of two people who are currently Soho House members
