Soho House’s War On Bankers Continues

A couple months back Soho House started giving financial service industry hacks the cold shoulder, refusing to renew the memberships of several Wall Street “types,” under the guise of getting back to its “creative roots.” To that end, they recently enacted a new dress code that bans suits (with “blue shirt, black pants” obviously coming up next) obviously in an attempt to keep people like you out:

What not to Wear
At Soho House, we’ve always believed that a relaxed atmosphere is a critical part of our identity. Taking that belief a step further, we’re asking members not to wear jackets and ties to the Roof this summer. We’d like to extend that mood on the 6th Floor, too. Obviously we recognize the style and allure of a well-tailored suit, but we’ve always wanted the House to feel like a home away from home rather than an extension of the office, so please do keep that in mind.

    gimme a break half the fagala and “artst” types there rock suits (albeit skinny “fashiony” ones).
    Whatever, as long as they keep stockin that place with tail I’m ok with it.

    I work for Bank of America, what is Soho House?

    @4 Ken, its a type of cracker. The buttery flavor goes well with cheeses and Boone’s Farm.

    Soho House is douche central. Hope the recession whisks places like this away.
    Exclusive bar/club=Sucky Crowd. Hopefully we can get back to the real New York which was much more communal. Ive been to this s-hole, about as much fun as a trip to the dentist.

    @6
    Soho house is nice if you’re on the roof and there with friends; agreed there’s plenty of douchebaggery, especially of the trustafarian “music/entertainment/etc” cooler-than-thou variety

    @6,7 – point is, douches are everywhere. you cant stop them, you can only hope to contain them. it’s pretty much impossible to be at a ‘hot’ spot in nyc without getting a little douche on yourself.
    only way to protect yourself is to wear a lot of axe.

    Do they show you guys proper practice for cupping the balls?

  10. Posted by guest | May 29, 2009 at 2:33 PM

    HAHAHA 8, true indeed. Not to mention the finance type ups the douche factor exponentially. I also love how Soho House refers to itself as “the House”. Gimme a break.

    Why don’t they just say no strip shirts. It gets to the point quicker

  16. Posted by guest | May 29, 2009 at 4:39 PM

    Velvet ropes, private clubs, and most 4 star restaurants are not going make it.
    NYC has 2 more years of declining real estate prices (CA is down 45%…we only down 20) and increasing unemployment numbers due to severance packages rolling off.
    I really miss NYC-06 & NYC-96.

    The next step in de-bankering would be to ban untucked striped shirts.

    I really wish Moran’s was still around, or even Jeremy’s Ale house.
    Man I remember hooking up with the “admins in minis” almost on a nightly basis at the former…like shooting fish in a barrel. The latter was typically good for 20oz beers in foam cups and a fight with some douche from Drexel or Irving Trust or Brown Borthers for sure! Besides, who can forget urinating in a suit and red/yellow power tie under the FDR in front of the Fulton Fish Market while the mob was hauling freshly killed bodies in and out of the place!
    Then, it was usually over to McSorely’s for another 12 beers. If you didn’t pass out (or get knocked out by a regular) or leave in humiliation after getting “stage fright” pissing into the ice mound shoulder-to-shoulder at the urinals, you would invite the two birds you met at Moran’s for an “uptown ride” in your Dial Car. (Better yet your Limo, depending of course on your status and/or the number of vouchers you stole from dispatch)
    First stop was usually the Limelight and, after getting gakked up on a few lines of blow and some de rigueur knob slobbering in the back seat by the “bims”, the night would basically degenerate into several possibilities: heading to the Tunnel, for some real low class debauch; or a trip up to Dorrian’s, where you could conveniently ditch the bims in the crowd and either stumble home to Park Ave or just say “fuck it”, I’m going to see what’s happening at Surf Bar or (a few years later) the Mill.
    -Recollections of an old SalBro bond trader. You kids will never understand.

    Well, what we must do people is to follow the new policy. I guess this is also for everyone’s good. But, why don’t you use your creativeness on solving this matter? It’s important for a person to stoke their creativity and harness it to useful ends. Every now and again you need to recharge a little bit. There’s a quick thinking solution. Even if it only applies to your finances, definitely in other areas, doing things to boost your creativity are short term loans to your brain.

    @20 – Wow, Moran’s! Man did I get a lot of tail down there! The girls were so drunk and horny! Fresh out of college!
