he Ned is one of London's most exclusive hotels and last night five members of The Stack community got a taste of their newest membership option, ‘Ned Friends’, as part of our Stack Night In competitions.
"The Neds much loved Mille's Lounge is the ultimate friend-date-spot and our members put that to the test."
Greeted by the grand facade of black and white marbled floors and towering windows, The Ned played host last night to our lucky winner Vicky Pasion and four of her friends. Located in the heart of central London’s Bank and nestled amongst its iconic white stone buildings, this hotel and members club is an inner city haven perfect for a luxury staycation, revitalising spa trip or business cocktails.
The brainchild of hotel concept powerhouse Nick Jones (founder of the Soho House & Co franchise), The Ned is now one of London’s most popular spots. Built in 1924, the once derelict bank building has been restored to its roaring 20’s opulence with notes of contemporary finesse, take the rooftop pool (you’ve probably seen it on your Instagram) with its red and white loungers and 360 views which sees some of the cities coolest creatives flock to catch the rays during the summer months.
Spanning over 11 floors with 250 guest bedrooms and members facilities such as 10 restaurants, 15 bars, 2 pools, gyms and even a Moroccan inspired spa, membership at The Ned has many perks and makes us wonder why you'd ever want to leave.
Our guests got first hand access to one of the onsite restaurants, the much loved Millie's Lounge and were captured enjoying a three course meal by our photographer Kiran Gidda. Serving up British classics as well as high tea during the weekdays. Awash with plush, dusty pink, upholstered booths lined up against the backdrop of deep green marble columns and circling the mahogany bar serving up the Neds famous cocktails - this is the ultimate friend-date-spot and our members put that to the test.
The Ned operates in the traditional sense of a members club, basically you need to know someone to utilise the many facilities or even dine at the restaurants if you aren't yourself a member. This classic membership option is known as Ned's Club which grants you access to all of the exclusive facilities and requires a referral and application process.
The Ned has now introduced its latest style of membership, Ned Friends. This new membership option gives you access to some of The Ned's best bits. If you're a pal of The Ned’s you will get access to member-only spaces and events as well as benefits at the restaurants and on stays. From 15% off rooms to 20% off the Ned’s ground floor restaurants and 20% at all other Soho House public restaurants. You can also nip into the onsite spa and get 15% off from Monday to Wednesday for a mid-week refresh.
After their meal our winner was ready for a night of rest in one of The Ned’s glorious 5* bedrooms. From the ‘Crash Pad’ suites which feature brass beds and 20s style draped lamps perfected for short business stays to the outrageous luxury of the ‘Lutyens Suite’ - named after the building architect with flocked wallpaper, 2 bedrooms with ensuite and elegant 20s interior notes. Whatever room you rest your head in, it is infused with The Ned’s signature character of flair and emphasis on exclusivity.
"The Ned played host to our lucky winner Vicky Pasion and four of her friends for an evening of dinner and a luxury stay-over."
