Across the road from the Bank of England building, in London’s “square mile” stands the magnificent building of 27 Poultry. Previously known as the Midlands Bank building it has stood proudly since 1930, however it was left empty for some time before the team behind Soho House turned it in to an exclusive 5 star hotel and members club – The Ned.
Inside The Ned you’ll find a luxury hotel with a range of traditional English rooms. But more interestingly it contains 7 restaurants (another 2 for members), all of which are highly decadent and highly recommended.
At the time of writing Ned’s Barbershop is not yet opened, but it is described as a “classic, speakeasy-style barbershop for the modern gentleman, offering everything from a haircut to a traditional wet shave or facial”.
