Soho House has long stood on the pedestal as the epitome of luxury – even Meghan Markle is known to frequent the Soho Farmhouse.

Now, the exclusive member’s club franchise is expanding to the Netherlands, with Soho House Amsterdam officially opening its doors this week.

Located in the Bungehuis building on the Spuistraat, the canal-side House will have 79 bedrooms, a rooftop pool, a floor of club space and a Cecconi’s restaurant and Cowshed spa on the ground floor.

The rooftop has a swimming pool and bar with unparalleled views of the Dutch capital and the fourth floor is home to a state-of-the-art gym complete with HIIT and yoga studios.

The bedrooms range from tiny to extra-large and each of the rooms have antique pieces mixed with specially designed furniture and rugs. The bed throws and fabrics are inspired by the original windows in the grand Bungehuis staircase and the Bungeheuis building itself is covered with slabs of granite and limestone with the entrance flanked by art deco lighting.

The only area open to the public will be the ground floor, which has Cecconi’s Restaurant, the Cowshed Spa and private hire rooms.

Soho House Amsterdam also has the Bunge Room, which has a DJ booth and stage and the Library which has its own bar and small workspace area.

Bedroom bookings are now available to those with a Soho House membership.

With the new Eurostar London to Amsterdam route having opened earlier this year, a little bit of Dutch luxury has never been easier to attain.

Rooms from £130 per night. For more information visit sohohouseamsterdam.com/
