The historic Soho Round House will reopen as Soho Residence with a bar, club and lounge space in London’s West End.

The venue will open its doors on 28 November at 83-85 Wardour Street, with a capacity of 350 spread across three floors. The first floor and the basement club are both available for private hire. It has most recently been operating as The O Bar.

The ground floor of Soho Residence will have a hint of art deco style with Crittal inspired windows, hanging plants and banquette seating.

The basement club features festoon lighting, big screen imaging and a selection of craft beers and cocktails.

Erected in 1892, the Roundhouse building itself has previously existed as blues and skiffle clubs, welcoming celebrated performers from around the world.
