Amazing place!! I’m not a member, neither my friend, however we always seem to be there :D recently went to their white party and the place was amazingly decorated, beautiful dressed elegantly people, mostly mature and educated, which makes a warm and chic/chill environment. What I like the most is that you don’t really get bored as you have many rooms to choose from, all decorated differently and for different porpoises, so you can have a quiet silent night or a busy night full of club bangers, made few friends there as people are naturally friendly. It is a creative environment. I post a photo of me at the House nr 20 and #homehouse and they politely asked me if they could post it on their page :) felt honored. Extremely recommend it!!GOOGLE REVIEW

I have been a member since I was 18... I am now 32... the seasons have changed as many times as my hair style but what always remains loyal, consistent and almost perfect is Home House. Like the big brother I always needed Home House has been there for me in times of elation, consideration & expectation. I can remember at least 5 top ten moments in my which has started or ended at this fine establishment. The staff - make it. The food is cool, but the building itself is it’s own character. Home house is your new Best friend, get that membership sorted and start enjoying!GOOGLE REVIEW

The drinks were really well made but there are mice in literally every room. I got extremely sick afterward and I only had two drinks. I’m a decent sized man and can hold my liquor and I thought it was unrelated. I came back again and again saw mice, (but again really good drinks!) and this time I didn’t get sick but my friend did. He complained about the rats. The staff explained like we were idiots that mice are everywhere in London and they weren’t rats. He also said black people complain too much. (My friend is black.) so in short, come for the drinks, leave for the mice and the racism. And yes, mice are everywhere in London, but it’s pretty gross to see them running under the bar and in lounge areas.GOOGLE REVIEW
