Julie HachéI've been a member for a few years. I haven't found a place where I can be more productive than here. It's also great for meetings, but not being able to make calls could be a pain. I travel a lot so the multi-city membership is worth it for me.

Erin BuryI’m a member! I don’t use it like the cool kids (evenings & weekends) - I go for a lot of breakfast and lunch meetings. I find it’s worth it if you want a spot to take meetings/clients that’s a cool, with a good vibe and good drinks/food. It’s also a great place to work remotely (aside from not being able to take phone calls except in the halls/reception are). We’ve also hosted events there & they have great spaces to leverage. I actually know two companies who use Soho as their office - they get each employee a membership instead of paying office rent - employees are jazzed that they get a membership, and Soho likes it because they get more people in on weekdays (their slow time) - they can receive your mail, do printing/mailing/etc, and book spaces for boardrooms. They also do a ton of events, movie screenings, parties, etc. But I have to admit I don’t use it for that often. And I’ve been to NYC and Miami houses but that’s it - but only for parties, not for work. With a Toronto membership you get access to Chicago - otherwise you have to get the all-house membership (more expensive) - I don’t travel enough to need it, but I imagine it’s handy if you do travel a lot since most of the global houses have hotels attached to them. Hope this helps & happy to answer any more questions!!

Alex De BoldJulie Haché, Pete Forde, Erin Bury are 100% right. If you were in Miami just half a day longer I could have shown you Soho Beach house. It's our second year visiting and it really can't be beat. We were hanging out the pool or beach and a cool Cuban trio was playing during Sunday brunch. I've also been to NYC's Soho House which is 5x the size and impressive. Food is awesome, people are awesome. If it's about combing a great work space and a place to hang out with other like minded folks it can't be beat. Starbucks and Wework be dammed. It's kind of my unofficial mission to visit as many of the houses I can - Barcelona and Berlin are high on the list!

Swathi MohanDefinitely worth it. I travel a lot for work to the other cities with houses. Always feels like home.

Andrew JenkinsI am an international member and have found it to be a more cost effective solution than paying for a co-working space if you don’t need meeting rooms. Great for hosting client and prospect meetings. Finally, I recoup much of the cost because of the free screenings on the weekends

Paul Jeffrey CroweThe savings on hotels in NYC, Chicago, London, Istanbul, etc is worth it alone. It’s tough to find an equal quality hotel at the same price in the same neighborhoods. I also travel solo a lot so having a friendly place to hang out and work, and a menu you know has a few familiar dishes is always appreciated by myself.

What are all the cool kids using to stay up to date on events in the Toronto and KWC area? I am subscribed to Startup Digest for those areas, but there is now radio silence there. The mailing lists no longer come and the calendars are blank. That said, they seemed to collbaorting with tech stars and have all these great reading lists they send now, but those aren’t about events. ... See MoreSee Less
