After the BBC vacated their long-standing base in London upon relocating to Manchester in 2013, the Grade II-listed building - purpose-built by architect Graham Dawbarn in 1960 - underwent renovations to turn that legendary corner of West London into a creative hub deserving of the media legacy so synonymous with the area.
While TV work continues elsewhere in the building - This Morning, The Jonathan Ross Show and The Graham Norton Show are all broadcast from there - it’s the impressive luxury of White City House that now draws the most fertile creative minds to meet, eat, network, and relax in clear view of Television Centre’s forecourt.
The 19th private members club to open as part of the Soho House group, it’s a haven of relief - the open-air rooftop swimming pool especially so in good weather - but it’s also a stunning venue that regularly showcases intimate music performances amid opulent surroundings and invites members of the public in to experience it all.
It’s to this end that Clash Live descended upon the 8th floor of White City House to host a special spring club event. Our handpicked line-up, all styled on the night by Farah, represented a cross-section of our current favourite new British acts: Miraa May, Celeste, Olivia Nelson, RuthAnne and Dextric.
