Set in the Grade I-listed, former Midland Bank designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens in 1924, The Ned is a luxury hotel, members club, all-round extravagant London hotspot and lifestyle Mecca. The hotel is a collaboration between Soho House and the Sydell Group (the hoteliers behind slick U.S. brands like NoMad, LINE, and Freehand). Rooms bring back the glory days of the 1920s and ’30s with linen-velvet blackout blinds, luxurious linens and four-poster beds in suites. Eight restaurants occupy the 3,000 square metre former banking hall - food hall deluxe. A decadent cocktail lounge is set in the former vault room - two floors below ground and star of the 1964 Bond film Goldfinger. Membership (by application), provides a wealth of perks across the bedrooms, restaurants, and spa and grooming - and also offers access to Ned’s Club Upstairs, a social space with rooftop pool and terraces overlooking the London Skyline and beyond.
