About The Ned


How The Ned Happened?

When Nick Jones, the founder of Soho House & Co, first saw the City's disused Midland Bank building in 2012, he fell in love. 'The property had been empty for nearly eight years but there was something about it – the details and scale of it – that just floored me,' Jones explains. Soho House & Co has built and run 18 members' clubs – most with bedrooms – and 37 restaurants around the world, while Sydell Group has eight hotels in North America, including The NoMad in Manhattan, Freehand in Miami and The Line in Los Angeles. While both companies have worked with historic buildings before, Jones and Zobler were immediately inspired by Sir Edwin 'Ned' Lutyens' masterpiece at 27 Poultry – all 29,450 square metres of it. 'It was the most beautiful building I'd ever seen,' says Jones. Zobler adds: 'The architecture is outstanding and so well preserved. You can't help but fall in love with it.'
