By all accounts, Soho House New York has been a smashing success. New York's media and arts elite clammored for a coveted membership, members from London made sure to spend a bit of time in its cozy Meatpacking confines while in New York, and companies loved to throw glitzy bashes there. Win, win, win for everyone. But in these downtimes, when many people are looking to cut costs whenever possible, are SHNYC members thinking about bailing on the annual dues? And who will want to replace them? One Little Birdy who is not a member tells DBTH that they have been approached by a few members, offering a membership at a "discounted price". While this does not spell doom, it is a troubling sign at a time when the company is focused on a global expansion.
What say you, DBTHers? Are you ready to cancel your membership? Are you ready to sign up if given the chance? Comments are open!
