Dumbo House render, via Soho House

It’s official, private members club Soho House is opening its first Brooklyn outpost dubbed Dumbo House.

The group already has two Manhattan locations, but has yet to make the hop across the Brooklyn Bridge – until now.

Dumbo House is slated to open in autumn 2017, and will take over the top two floors of Empire Stores on the Dumbo waterfront. The 19th-century former warehouse complex will also house the brand’s Cecconi’s restaurant, which opens on its ground floor in June.

Details about the new clubhouse are scant, but an early render reveals an industrial inspired lounge with concrete walls, floor-to-ceiling windows, hanging plants (in the vein of London’s The Store Studios) and midcentury-inspired furniture.

And while Dumbo House won’t have a rooftop pool, it will include an outdoor terrace with views of the Statue of Liberty and East River.

Soho House Group is known for its love of heritage buildings and adaptive reuse projects. Empire Stores bears similarities to London’s Tea Building, which houses the brand’s Shoreditch House outpost, as well as other creative companies.
