The Ned London Events
Former Midland Bank turned hipster five-star hotel, The Ned is a stylish and indulgent oasis in the buzzing heart of London. The hotel gets its name from architect Sir Edwin ‘Ned’ Lutyens who designed the original structure in 1924. In 2017, The Ned opened its doors, following a transformation by Soho House.
The interiors are reminiscent of the glamorous 1920s & 1930s jazz era with queue African malachite Art Deco pillars, crystal chandeliers, polished walnut walls and original banking desks serving as stylish cocktail bars. Along with 252 luxurious bedrooms, rooftop pool, gym, spa and hammam, the hotel also boasts six Grade I listed meeting rooms, two outdoor terraces and one converted dome area. Combined with the convenience of access, the hotel has emerged a sought-after choice of venue for weddings, corporate events and social occasions.

Ground floor bar was wonderful, high qualify service and great drinks. […] It's not hard to imagine this place was the formerly the bank of England, spacious and breathtaking architectural detail.
Beautiful design and service! An old bank transformed into a mesmerizing hotel. The place blew my mind. Beautiful swimming pool on roof terrace […] a vault turned into a bar very cool!
Went to a two day work conference here […] if it's grand opulence you're after this place has it in spades. The place is huge, marble pillars with ornate detailing around all the rooms and very posh dosh at our shin dig.
