4. Soho House New York
: If you’re one of the privileged few to have a membership or friend connections to this exclusive NYC club, or perhaps just know a guy who knows a guy who knows the manager, then we say absolutely spend your Saturday afternoon at Soho House’s rooftop pool whilst sipping cocktails and working on your tan (and social ranking).
