The Ivy Soho?

Bigger. Buzzier. And, with your help, even better than anything we've done before. Welcome to The Ivy Soho, arriving on Broadwick Street in December 2016. Spanning 7,500 square feet and with over 200 covers, we'll need to be on our toes from morning tea to late-night tipples.
It's bound to be busy. Certain to be stylish. Poised to be perfect. Have you got what it takes?
