From Los Angeles to London (where the first location opened in 1995) to New York's Meatpacking District, the Soho House epitomizes exclusivity. Memberships are required for full access to all the social club offers – a rooftop swimming pool, spa, gym, screening room, restaurant and bar – but invited guests can enjoy a taste of the highlife. Just stargaze subtly: taking photos results in automatic loss of membership.

Sean Lowe, you've got competition in the rose-giving department!
After Sunday's Golden Globes, West Hollywood's Soho House hosted a private afterparty, where co-hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler celebrated being the first female duo to ever host a major awards show.
Around midnight, the party began to move from the main bar to the outside bar. There, Robert Pattinson "held court and joked around with Tina Fey," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "He presented her with a red rose."
Soho House was the place to be on Friday night: Bradley Cooper, Rashida Jones and Molly Sims kicked off their weekends by visiting the West Hollywood hotspot.
Seated on a big comfy couch, Cooper relaxed with three other men – who looked like business associates, an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
"Bradley was beaming with happiness," the source says of the Silver Linings Playbook actor. "He was very engaged in conversation, but every now and then would look out the large windows to enjoy the amazing view."
Jones looked "funky and adorable" the source adds. Wearing a high ponytail, black framed glasses, jeans and a sweater, the Parks and Recreation actress was joined by a male friend as she greeted other guests. "She was laughing and joking and really lively throughout the night," the source says.
A slam dunk for Twilight!
Robert Pattinson stepped out Sunday night to attend Emmy host Jimmy Kimmel's after party at Soho House in Los Angeles.
Joined by a male friend, Pattinson was dressed casually in a baseball cap and jacket, but every girl in the room was "trying to get his attention," an onlooker tells PEOPLE.
Inside the star studded event, guests sipped on Don Julio margaritas and Bulleit Bourbon Old Fashioned cocktails and snacked on sliders from Umami Burger.
Samantha Ronson deejayed a set full of current hits and classic rock while nominees, winners and guests including Breaking Bad's Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi, Downton Abbey's Michelle Dockery, L.A. Laker Kobe Bryant and more enjoyed the evening.
"At one point Rob approached Kobe to say hi and tell him he was a big fan," the source adds. "Kobe said the same right back to him!"

Katy Perry was a social butterfly on a recent night out at Soho House in West Hollywood.
Wearing a white lace dress, the pop star ran into a table of business associates having dinner in the garden and stopped to catch up before heading inside to the bustling bar to meet up with friends.
The recently single singer "was all smiles and in great spirits," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "She had hellos for everyone at the table. She was adorable and spoke to them in a character-like cutesy voice before making her exit about five minutes later."
Things were calm for Tom Hardy, who was also at the Soho House the same Wednesday evening.
The Dark Knight Rises actor was spotted "having a nice time with a small group of friends around the bar area," an onlooker says. "He was chatting away and listening to stories while he sipped on a cocktail."
"He looked like he was enjoying a very low-key night out," the source adds.
Robin Thicke and wife Paula Patton showed no shortage of lovey-dovey emotion in public together this week.
Starting off Monday at E3's PlayStation Lounge in L.A., the couple took time out of a video game duel – Patton beat Thicke – to sing each others' praises.
"Robin glowed as he spoke about Paula, even calling her his mentor," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "Paula seemed [surprised] by his comment and gave him a big kiss, jokingly saying that this just bought him another 10 years. They continued to gush about each other back and forth throughout the night."
The romantic outings continued on Wednesday, when the upbeat pair headed to Soho House in West Hollywood for the Sundance Institute Benefit presented by Tiffany & Co.
"They told other people at the event that they were on 'date night,' " an attendee says. "They looked visibly excited to spend time together."
The source adds that the couple was able to step out for the evening with the help of a babysitter, who looked over their son Julian Fuego.

New mom Hilary Duff stepped out for a quiet dinner with hubby Mike Comrie and a group of four friends at SoHo House in L.A. – sans son Luca.
The vibe was mellow, but Duff was very chatty with a girlfriend and spend the evening laughing and enjoying good conversation. The group would alternate between small side conversations and also shared jokes with the whole table, as guests sipped wine casually.
When it was time to leave, Comrie ran over to his wife's side of the table and pulled out her chair, helping her to get up from the table and placing his hand on her back as they walked out together.
They made a PDA-filled splash at Sundance, and new couple Bradley Cooper and Zoe Saldana stepped out once again at L.A's SoHo House for a Grey Goose-hosted party the night before the Academy Awards. But this time around, they seemed to be playing things more coy – possibly because the reigning Sexiest Man Alive had brought his mom, Gloria, out!
Cooper had his arm around his mother (who's already met Zoe), and led the way through the Weinstein Company bash as Zoe, Casey Affleck and a pal followed them through the crowd. Meanwhile, Scarlett Johansson and new beau Nate Naylor walked hand-in-hand through the party together. The pair stopped to chat with Russell Simmons before heading out. – Julie Jordan
