The Ned

Housed in a building designed by Sir Edwin “Ned” Lutyens, The Ned is a luxurious members-only club featuring 252 bedrooms, nine restaurants, a gym, spa, hamam, and both a rooftop and indoor swimming pool. The Ned is a young, modern, and millennial departure from the internationally known Soho House.

According to the Sydell Group, “The Ned will be a new hotel designed and operated by Soho House and Sydell in the heart of London. The hotel is owned by Soho House controlling shareholder and Sydell partner, Ron Burkle.” The former bank building was designed “by Sir Edwin Lutyens as the headquarters of Midland Bank, which at the time was the largest clearing house bank in the world. The beautiful building will be fully restored and converted to hotel use and will feature nine unique restaurants and bars, majestic event spaces converted from the former executive offices and board rooms, extensive health and leisure facilities, grooming facilities, a roof top terrace with pool overlooking St. Pauls as well as a membership club.”

Membership to The Ned includes access to dedicated fitness and social spaces: Ned’s Club Upstairs, boasting the “best views in London,” alongside a heated swimming pool, terrace, Canopy Bar & Restaurant, and two additional Dome bars; Dome Bars and Roof Terraces, two domes on either side of Ned’s Club Upstairs, one aptly titled Poultry Dome Bar & Terrace, and the other Princes Street Dome Bar & Terrace; the Canopy Bar & Restaurant, a rooftop space for eating, inspired by Victorian conservatories and featuring a retractable glass roof; the Ned’s Club Downstairs, a basement bar in the former banking vault, featuring original stainless steel and engraved safety deposit boxes; Ned’s Club Active, a state-of-the-art gym with marble changing rooms, advanced strength-training and cardiovascular equipment, a boxing gym, and Pilates, yoga, and spinning studios; Ned’s Club Relax, boasting a members-only hamam, steam room, swimming pool, as well as a nail parlor, barbershop, and The Powder Room.

Bedrooms at The Ned are rich in brass and mahogany furnishings and period-appropriate chandeliers evocative of the 1920s and 1930s design elements that helped define the era. Vintage pieces, hand-knotted Afghan rugs, rain-forest showers, brass bedding, floral wallpapering, and lush Edwardian accents speak to the Art Deco inspiration behind each room.
