The Ned. The new name on everyone’s lips. And if you haven’t been yet, you don’t know what you’re missing.
Soho House’s newest addition offers an incredible 9 restaurants and 250 rooms, not to mention various members clubs and even a spa and gym. But the most impressive thing by far about the Ned is the stunning décor and layout as soon as you step through the door. They say first impressions matter, and The Ned does not disappoint.
Stunning 20’s style décor
Located at 27 Poultry, the former home of Midlands Bank headquarters in London has been transformed into 3,000 square metres of elegance and beauty. On arrival, guests are greeted by an open plan layout of different bars and restaurants, but pride of place in the middle of the room is the incredibly impressive circular stage where live jazz bands perform.
From Paris to New York, your food fantasies will be satisfied with The Ned’s 9 eateries spread across eleven floors. Millie’s Lounge is a classic brasserie with a 24-hour menu serving everything British.
Zobler’s Delicatessen is a New York deli with sandwiches, smoked herring and cheesecake on offer. Cafe Sou is a Parisian café, offering classic French food such as baguettes, steak and salads. Lutyens Grill, which is members and hotel guests only, is an American-style steakhouse serving a selection of USDA prime, Hereford Angus and Japanese Wagyu. Kaia is a modern Asian Pacific restaurant. The Nickel Bar is an American-style bar serving classic diner dishes such as mac and cheese and milkshakes. Cecconi’s is a Venetian style restaurant serving Italian pizza, pasta and cocktails.

The incredible staff are all attentive and great at recommending which drink or dish is best suited to you.
Satisfy your food fantasies
As impressive as the upstairs is, the real treat is downstairs. Originally the home to the Midlands Bank strongroom, the private members Vault Bar is entered through the huge vault door and the walls are lined with 3,000 safety deposit boxes.
