Members club Soho House continues its expansion across the U.S. with the recent opening of a property in Nashville, Tennessee. Located inside the May Hosiery Mills building in the city’s Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood, Soho House Nashville was crafted by the brand’s in-house design team to instill its distinctive standard of luxury and comfort, while simultaneously channeling the character of the setting.
“Soho House Nashville draws inspiration from the city’s musical heritage and is designed around art and entertainment,” says Soho House lead designer Harriet Liley. “The house’s design is influenced by the strong prewar, European aesthetic of the existing building with striking Bauhaus-inspired geometric patterns, bold industrial finishes, and bespoke fixtures that pay homage to the structure’s factory history.”
Spread across 97,000 square feet, Soho House Nashville comprises amenities like a trio of performance spaces, a pool, health club, and screening room. The new location also boasts the distinction of being the first Soho House with an onsite Cecconi’s restaurant, dubbed Club Cecconi’s.
Warm, rich textures permeate the interior, recalling the aesthetics of the rock ’n roll era, while decorative patterns harken back to the Jazz Age. Bold striped floors lining the pool terrace mirror the strings of a guitar as well. The creations of Tennessee furniture and fabric makers anchor spaces like the Club Room with bespoke focal points like handmade ceramic lamps and industrial metal shelving. “It was always about remaining authentic to the space, the city, and the members in Nashville,” Liley adds. The property is further defined by 170 works from 41 artists—the largest permanent contemporary art collection in the city.
The house’s 47 accommodations span eight configurations. Fixtures like oversized chandeliers and industrial metalwork screens instill uniformity across each unit, alongside vintage accessories and bespoke furnishings. Woven tapestries fashioned from custom woven fabric were created to conceal TVs as well.
