The Ned London, UK

Set in the former Midland Bank building in the heart of the City, The Ned was designed by Sir Edwin ‘Ned’ Lutyens in 1924. The heritage building hosts now 252-bedroom hotel, nine restaurants, roof terrace bar, two pools, a spa and comes from Soho House with US boutique hotel group Sydellhosts. The 252 bedrooms range in size from intimate to large-scale suites – all with a nod to 1920s glamour. Each of the nine restaurants have their own distinct space within the banking hall, separated by 92 verdite columns and rows of Grade I-listed walnut banking counters. There are many secrets inside Ned but the most we like is the Vault Bar..Once the formidable entrance to a multi-room bank vault, with deposits of more than £335 million, and now a cosy club space for Ned’s Club member and hotel guests, The Ned’s vault door is a must-see..
