Five years after the launch of its sister hotel in London, The Ned NoMad has entered New York with members-only spaces, luxury rooms, and interesting dining concepts.
Leonardo DiCaprio, Gigi Hadid, Julia Fox, Evan Mock, Rosie Perez — you know The Ned NoMad had truly arrived (and how!) in New York City when a slew of A-listers arrived for a sneak-peek ahead of is launch. The brand’s first international outpost to open following the launch of The Ned London in 2017, the new Manhattan address is all set to become a swanky society den for celebrities and well-heeled crowd of the city.
Taking over the former NoMad Hotel, the property is located in the iconic Johnston Building, which was first built in 1903 as a store-cum-office. Created in 2017 by Soho House founder and CEO Nick Jones, The Ned first opened its doors in London’s Financial District and became a familiar name quite instantly, thanks to its sprawling Cowshed Spa and celebrity-friendly reputation.
Stunning interiors are designed by the Soho House design team itself, while the original architectural features at The Ned NoMad remain intact. On offer are an eclectic mix of members-only as well as public spaces, a hotel with 167 stylishly-done rooms, and interesting F&B concepts. The rooms here range in size from intimate to spacious suites — all with a nod to 1920s glamour and a rich jewel-tone aesthetic, inspired by the Beaux-Arts architecture.
For those keen on exclusivity, the ‘Ned’s Club’ here is members–only and gives you a private access to the rooftop terrace restaurant and mezzanine bar. The menu at The Dining Room pays homage to the NoMad Hotel’s classic dishes. Little Ned is an old-school bar with booth-style seating and small menu of bar nibbles, while The Library is a stylish workspace by day that transforms into a cosy bar at night. The property is also home to Manhattan’s first branch of Cecconi’s, the famous plush Italian restaurant!
The space also features the marble-floored Atrium complete with a stage for musical performances, and the sprawling rooftop offers breathtaking panoramas of the glittering skyline featuring the Empire State building. Active members will have access to the New York Financial District clubhouse as well as all of the Ned properties that open up, including the London one.
The group believes in expanding the concept while maintaining its ethos of creating a space for like-minded members to meet, work, and have a good time. It also plans on launching a second property in New York City by 2024, that will include a pool, gym and wellness facilities, a performance space, as well as several restaurants.
