Amy  MacDonald, Jamie Genevieve, Karen Dunbar, Sanjeev Kohli and Geoff Ellis were amongst the VIP guests at an exclusive evening organised by private members club, Soho House in Glasgow.

The company founded by Kirsty Young’s husband Nick Jones now has over 28 houses around the world.

There has been recent speculation that Glasgow is next on the map and an  initial planning application was recently uncovered for a location in Glasgow city centre, just off George Square. 

Although organisers refuse to confirm whether a Soho house is being built in Glasgow, they held an exclusive Cities Without Houses event in Maryhill’s engine works to celebrate the life of Robert Burns.

The venue was recently used for Cop26 and hosted guests including Leo Dicaprio.  

For their Burns celebration, a traditional piper welcomed 150 guests from the creative industries, whilst Karen Dunbar performed Tam O Shanter, Nati Dredd gave a musical performance and diners were served up a starter of venison carpaccio followed by haggis, neeps, and tatties, and Cranachan dessert.

A spokesperson said: “Many of Soho House’s recent openings - including Austin, Rome, Nashville, Paris, Tel Aviv, Copenhagen and Stockholm - have been preceded by Cities Without Houses where we have been building a local creative community with CWH membership for a number of years prior to opening.
We aim to showcase the best of creativity in each city, often partnering with members to highlight them or their industry.

From dinners to parties, talks to workshops and everything in between, we have something for every member covering various industries including music, fashion, art, film, food and drink, tech and wellbeing.

Our events allow CWH members to connect with other Soho House members in their local community and beyond.”

Cities Without Houses costs around £180 a month to join.
