The luxurious playground for Manhattan’s elite, like its sister property in London, was designed by Soho House founder Nick Jones and is designed with vintage touches that hint at Gatsby-era grandeur. Inside, there are 167 rooms inspired by the Art Deco movement that range from opulent overnight accommodation to long-term luxury studio accommodation. The club is also home to renowned restaurants and bars, including the city’s first Cecconi location, Ned’s Dining Room and Little Ned, as well as intimate networking and entertainment spaces like The Library, the Magic Room and Ned’s Club. Located atop the Beaux-Arts-style Johnston Building, Ned’s Club rooftop lounge embodies 1920s nostalgia with sweeping views of New York’s definitive landmark of the era, the Empire State Building. And while being a Soho House member can make the application process easier, Ned’s Club membership is separate; applications can be completed directly on their website. 1170 Broadway, New York
