Serving cocktails using seasonal and fresh products to provide guests with a seasonal experience that their palates are familiar with.

As reducing carbon footprint and contributing to a sustainable world are among our most important values, we prefer to use recycled and local products.

What Do We Dream?

We want to create a time period where music and delicious cocktails are at the forefront by adding our shared passion in mixology & gastronomy and our own experiences to the original, authentic, connective culture, and steady quality of Soho House.

Our biggest dream is to provide a unique experience to the members and guests of Soho House in the magnificent ambiance of Soho House with world-class trendy cocktails and presentations.


As Mathilda, we embarked on this adventure with the motto of good cocktails. Our original cocktails are accompanied by original music in a wide range of content, from lounge to house, carefully prepared by our local DJs.

The nostalgia journey with pop, funk, and disco songs that left their mark on the 70s and 2000s on weekdays leaves its place to house and electronic auditions with the energy of the weekends.
