Soho House’s parent company, Membership Collective Group, has seen revenues more than double in the last quarter as it recovers from closure periods during the pandemic.

Total sales increased by 118% to $124m in the second quarter to 4 July 2021, compared to $57m for the same period last year, while its waiting list grew to a record 63,700. In the UK, total revenues reached $40.9m.

The group said it had enjoyed a “robust recovery” in its first set of earning since it listed on the New York Stock Exchange earlier this year. While it is yet to make a profit, it is aiming to do so by the end of next year, The Times reported.

Founded by Nick Jones in 1995, the group now expanded to 30 Soho Houses and nine Soho Works worldwide. It currently has seven new venues in the pipeline for this year, including a Soho House in Brighton.

“As restrictions have eased across the cities we operate in, we’ve seen a strong rebound of in-house revenue growth,” said Jones. “While the rise of Covid-19 cases creates some near-term uncertainty around the shape of our recovery, the pent-up demand we have seen so far from our members as we have reopened gives us confidence in the medium-term outlook.”
