This is how SOHO house turned this bank into a wonderful hotel & club! What to find out more about the story behind? Stay with us until the end!
Located in the City of London, this hotel is one of the biggest openings that will happen in London this year.
Called the Ned hotel, club and restaurant, the place is the result of collaboration between SOHO House and the US hotel Sydell Group.
The building is 27 Poultry, an iconic building designed by Sir Edwin ‘Ned” Lutyens from whom they’ve named the hotel.
The 320,000-square-foot of space used to be the headquarters for Midland Bank but hasn’t been used in quite some time now.
Half hotel, half member’s club, the Ned will have 252 bedrooms, nine restaurants, rooftop and indoor swimming pools, a gym, spa and hamam (the Islamic variant of the Roman bath, steambath, sauna, or Russian banya, distinguished by a focus on water, as distinct from ambient steam).
There are some astonishing formal reception rooms including the Tapestry room featuring a 1920s wraparound tapestry and original walnut paneling and a saloon dominated by a chandelier that used to hang in Devonshire House.
The member’s club will be an upstairs/downstairs deal like in the basement the club will spread on the building’s old vault which still features the original stainless steel, engraved safety deposit boxes. The vault was the model for Fort Knox.
When it comes to the bar, the food from Cecconi’s restaurant as well as classic cocktails will be served there.
Upstairs will be the Canopy Bar & Restaurants with a retractable roof, as well as two extra bars like the Poultry Dome Bar & Terrace and Princes Street Dome Bar & Terrace.

The Ned hotel is set to open in April 2017 and you can book a room now on the official website.
