The Ned – Sound/Audio Engineer (USA)

Who we are…

The Ned NoMad is a members club and hotel that will open in the heart of New York in the summer of 2022. It will be the first international “Ned” location to open following the launch of The Ned London in 2017.

The property…

Located in the Johnston Building and formerly the NoMad Hotel in Manhattan, the property was built in 1903 as a store and office building. Original architectural features will be honored, with interiors designed by the Soho House Design team.

The Ned NoMad will offer a mix of members-only and public spaces, including 167 rooms and suites. Ned’s Club will give members access to a rooftop bar and terrace restaurant as well as a first-floor bar, grill and lounge with live entertainment from the Atrium Stage, seven nights a week.

New to the property will be Cecconi’s, a modern classic Italian restaurant.
