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. The moment he left, he called Ron Burkle, Soho House chairman and investor. 'Ron came to view the building and straight away we began to imagine how the project would take form,' says Jones.
Located in the heart of the City of London, each one of the Ned's event rooms boasts period features including walnut panelling and vintage chandeliers, as well as ample domed windows to allow for plenty of natural light.
Rooms range in size from 21 square metres to 165 square metres, and can accommodate between 4 and 200 people. Food and drinks menus – ranging from cocktails and snacks to four-course dinners – can be created by their team.
