The Ned NoMad has a roaring new redesign. 

The hotel and members-only club, housed in New York’s historic Johnston Building, has recently undergone a renivigorating renovation. Built in 1903, the structure still boasts a stately limestone facade and disntinctive tower. But inside, a new vision has come to life. 

"Reimagined under the creative vision of the Soho House Design team and Stonehill Taylor, The Ned NoMad seamlessly intertwines Beaux-Arts elegance with the alluring spirit of the 1920s," says Karin Kopano, The Ned NoMad's managing director. Each of the 167 bedrooms is outfitted with vintage pieces, bespoke lighting, and hand-knotted rugs, all subtle touches that separate The Ned's offerings from the rest of the hospitality pack. 


The interior nods to the building's original owner, Caroline H. Johnston, a Germany-based real estate developer at the turn of the century. "Every meticulously curated detail... serves as a tribute to Caroline Johnston's enduring legacy and a celebration of the design narrative," Kopano says. That Johnston owned the building as a woman was highly unusual at the time. Fittingly, the hotel's art collection, titled "A Different Century" and curated by Soho House's Head of Collections, Kate Bryan, features more than 150 works that challenge traditional narratives. Artists represented in the collection include such sought-after figures as Mickalene Thomas, Laurie Simmons, Rashid JohnsonGlenn Ligon, and Issy Wood

Cecconi’s Dining Room.

But sight is not the only sense that will be catered to inside. Visitors' taste buds will delight in two dining destinations: the first Manhattan location of Cecconi's, a modern Italian restaurant specializing in Northern Italian fare, and Little Ned, an intimate bar filled with classic watering hole fare. 


For members, the enchantment extends to the intimate Magic Room, an Art Deco-inspired space reminiscent of 1920s and '30s cabaret clubs designed to host live shows and events. Ned Club, meanwhile, provides a vibrant  atmosphere with entertainment and a lively bar. Topping off the amenitities is Ned's Club Upstairs, a rooftop terrace offering skyline views and al fresco dining and drinking.


The Ned NoMad's redesign breathes new life into a storied setting. This dazzling transformation has created a sanctuary where timeless Beaux-Arts elegance seamlessly intertwines with the modern allure of the 1920s, offering the best of both old and new worlds.
