London-based Soho House & Co and New York’s Sydell Group have joined forces to create The Ned: a hotel, club and collection of restaurants in the City of London. Set in the iconic former Midland Bank building, The Ned was designed by Sir Edwin ‘Ned’ Lutyens in 1924. The heritage building will open in Spring 2017.
The Ned’s six private hire rooms and terraces are among the building’s most elegant spaces. Ideal for wedding celebrations, the rooms have a capacity of between 10 – 200 guests.
Ned’s Club, available to members and hotel guests, offers a range of facilities. Additionally, Ned’s Club Active has cardio, strength and training equipment, a boxing gym, Pilates, yoga studio and House Ride. At Ned’s Club Relax, the spa, there is a 20m swimming pool, hamam, sauna and steam room.
Brass and mahogany furniture, chandeliers and richly patterned furnishings decorate The Ned’s 252 bedrooms. Each room channels 1920s design, with vintage pieces, hand-knotted Afghan rugs and rainforest showers.
