Nick Jones (husband of Desert Island Discs presenter Kirsty Young) founded Soho House in 1995 in London as a private members’ club for people in the film, media and creative industries. Locations now span Europe and North America and the group has expanded into restaurants, cinemas, spas and hotels.
