That’s why we order the ingredients from Italy but, of course, we consider the advantage of fresh vegetables and fruits of Turkey and seasonal delicious fish meats. The sauces, the cookery garnishes and the cooking techniques are all adapted to Italian traditions with the presence of Head Chief Alessio Biangini” said Asli Ergun, Marketing & Communications Manager of Soho House Istanbul.

All of this plays host to an architectural jewel that reflects Istanbul’s culture and history. Today, Soho House Istanbul is becoming the quintessential inspiration for its creative club members who enjoy pristine comfort in the city which bridges Eastern culture with Western.
