Nick Jones (Soho House founder and previous managing director) sold 80% of the club to British high-street tycoon Richard Caring in 2008. On 13 January 2012, the Financial Times announced that 60% of Soho House Group had been acquired by the US billionaire Ron Burkle, through his investment fund Yucaipa for approx. £250m, with founder Nick Jones retaining 10% and Richard Caring (Caprice Holdings) 30%, however, in September 2015 the company’s high leverage and limited free cashflow was under scrutiny by fixed income investors. However, company profit potential has been affected by growth in new clubs.

As of 2020, Soho House operates 28 clubs worldwide. Soho House announced that they will be launching 6 new houses in 2021, including locations in Rome, Paris, Austin, London, Tel Aviv and Canouan.

Soho House membership policies focus on creativity "above net worth and job titles" with "studied resistance to ostentation...[and] cultivated status signifiers," and favour moral values over financial success ("several execs were banned because they were thought to be abusive to their assistants") In June 2015, Soho House had over 50,000 members and a global waiting list of over 30,000. In July 2021, Soho House had 119,000 members across 27 houses in 10 countries.

In 2002, the London branch of the club made headlines as Iris Law, the two-year-old toddler daughter of actor Jude Law and his then wife, actress and designer Sadie Frost, was briefly hospitalized after accidentally consuming a part of an ecstasy tablet she found on the floor of Soho House while attending a child's birthday party. Law was ultimately unharmed.

In 2009, more than 80 residents signed an appeal by a neighborhood association against allowing Soho House to move into the top two floors of Luckman Plaza in West Hollywood, near Los Angeles. The opening of the West Hollywood location also drew opposition from Beverly Hills Mayor Nancy Krasne.

On 9 December 2010, American swimsuit designer Sylvie Cachay was found murdered in room 19 of the hotel.

In Amsterdam, the Netherlands, an attempt to open a new club also meets fierce protests. An Amsterdam House opened nonetheless in August 2018, as well as a second house in Barcelona.

In April 2021 during the COVID19 3rd Wave in Berlin with rising infection numbers, critically overburdened intensive care units in local hospitals, and all other cultural venues closed for a citywide lockdown Bottega Veneta held numerous maskless indoor dance parties at the Soho House (club) of Berlin for artists it flew in from around the world, though Soho house staff complained early on, management has remained silent and implied that their staff are not telling the truth. Staff at the Soho house club in Berlin have stood up to the company's efforts to reframe what happened as "spontaneous", clarifying that the party spaces were booked in advance; and, simultaneously club members have made their dissatisfaction and disappointment known with some considering ending their membership - a police investigation is underway.

Soho House New York was featured in season 6 of the TV Series Sex and the City in an episode titled "Boy Interrupted". In this episode, Samantha Jones (Kim Cattrall) pretends to be a member by using a stolen membership card.

On 16 August 2017, the film Tulip Fever (starring Alicia Vikander) was first screened at London's Soho House.
