Located in the 1903 Johnston Building, The Ned NoMad includes the Ned’s Club, a member’s club that gives access to extensive amenity spaces including a rooftop terrace, as well as 167 guestrooms and Manhattan’s first Cecconi’s restaurant. The first Ned to open in North America, the Ned NoMad is a unique interaction of the London-born club blended with an Art Deco style and old Manhattan glamour. To honor the historic property, which Stonehill Taylor previously converted from offices to the famed NoMad Hotel in 2012, original architectural features and details are prominent and serve as decorative elements that inform the interior design.

The Ned NoMad’s design concept was broken down into three pillars: the original 1903 Johnston Building; the building’s history; and the Golden Age of Music. Maintaining references to the Beaux-Arts style, the hotel’s public areas, namely the Ned’s Club Downstairs, Club Bar, Library, and the “Mad Men”-esque Ned’s Club Dining Room are filled with rich wood and fabric materials, the Ned’s signature green hue, elegant glasswork, and vintage furniture pieces, largely sourced from Hudson, New York. The Little Ned bar and the Magic Room, an intimate, members-only event space, play off a 1920s Art Deco design with the addition of vibrant colors and contemporary case goods and upholstery. The final member’s area, the Ned’s Club Upstairs, includes a rooftop lounge and outdoor terrace designed with a color palette inspired by the New York City sunset. There is also an exclusive private dining space in the Cupola, standing above the exterior as a beacon with a grand vintage chandelier.

Situated on the first floor and open to the public is Manhattan’s first Cecconi’s restaurant, whose design was inspired by traditional Italian Trattorias. The space features iterations of the Cecconi signature style stripe and the Ned’s rich color palette and wood detailing. The original Nomad Hotel Elephant Bar can also be found on the ground floor.
