No matter which of the Soho House doors you enter on Green Street, you’ll walk straight into the Allis, the all-day space that spans the width of the building. There are high ceilings and big windows, plus tables, lounge chairs, a bar and couches. The Allis seems designed for two purposes: For people to settle in with a laptop during the day or to get all dressed up and be part of the scene on weekends. It’s also the kind of place you could spend an entire day, with a croissant and coffee in the morning, a salad or sandwich for lunch, or small plates like carrot hummus or burrata on toast over cocktails in the evening. 

We went to the Allis for afternoon tea, and for $12 received an absurd amount of food—three mini sandwiches, a scone, a brownie, a chocolate chip cookie, a slice of cake and two cups of tea. This is not the best afternoon tea, but for $12? Sure. The brownie is stuffed with chocolate pieces, the scone is pretty decent and the chocolate chip cookie gets the job done. Throw in free Wi-Fi and a spacious, airy ambiance and you’re much better off spending an afternoon here than at Starbucks. We could also see ourselves popping in for a drink while waiting for a table at a nearby restaurant.

I'm blessed to say that I go to Soho house all the time thanks to my cousin's invitations! The Allis is definitely one of those place that I've recommended many times to friends - its a really lovely upscale experience, with comfy couches/chairs, chandeliers, lots of light, and amazing service. My favorite thing to do is to come for a cup of coffee or a pot of tea and work, but I also recommend this spot for taking your mother for a little high tea experience. The food is all delicious, the coffee is excellent, the cocktails are amazing, and you can't beat the awesome vibe.

I recently went to The Allis for tea and overall it was a good expierience. Chicagos tea scene is currently a bit lacking so I was excited to see what the Allis had to offer. The space is beautiful with rich colors and sparkling grand chandeliers. Overall the look is impressive. the tea service itself is much more expensive than it used to be at $34 ($43 with champagne). Honestly this price is pretty standard. There are several tea options and the tiered platters are filled with food. It really is beautifully presented. My only complaints are that I didn't love the tea I chose, I'll pick something different next time. The tea sandwiches were good but the bread was dried out, possibly made in advance and our tea was a bit later. Minor grievances but I have high expectations for tea. I will definitely come back for the tea service again, maybe a bit earlier in the day.
