May 2017, saw one of the biggest openings London has seen in a long time. The Ned Club, hotel and restaurants is a joint venture between Soho House and the US hotel Sydell group.
Located at the iconic old Midland Bank vaults, The Ned is a massive 32,000 square foot of luxury and opulence. The building hasn't been used for over a decade, so a lot of work has gone into breathing life into the building.
The building has 252 bedrooms, nine restaurants, rooftop and indoor swimming pools, a gym, spa and hammam. It's a lot to get your head around, so we'll tell you exactly what you need to know.
Ned Club Upstairs
Ned Club Upstairs, offers a panoramic rooftop space for members and room guests only . From here you can see views of St. Paul's Cathedral and much more.
Equipped with a heated pool, a retractable roof and two bars; Poultry Dome Bar & Terrace and Princes Dome Bar & Terrace.
Remember this is for members only, so you must apply for Membership before attempting to enjoy this space (membership details below).

In the basement, Neds Club will occupy the old vault of Midland Bank (which was the model for Fort Knox) and still features the original stainless steel deposit boxes.
