    Private members club – and favourite with London’s celebrity scene – Soho House is planning to open its first hotel in northern England with a Manchester property, according to reports.

    The group has sites across Europe, North America and in the south of England and would look to move into the Old Granada Studios as part of the ongoing £1.2 billion regeneration of the Quay Street site by Allied London.

    According to reports in the Manchester Evening News, the project will take up the space currently occupied by Granada TV’s Studio 4 (famously where The Beatles made their first TV appearance in 1962) and will boast 150 bedrooms as well as the city’s first rooftop swimming pool.

    Group founder Nick Jones, husband of Desert Island Discs host Kirsty Young, has previously been vocal about his desire to open a northern hotel in Manchester or Leeds.
