The Ned – Sound/Audio Engineer (US)

Who We Are…

The Ned NoMad is a members’ club and hotel that will open in the heart of New York in summer 2022. It will be the first international ‘Ned’ site 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. The original architectural features will be honoured, with interiors designed by the Soho House Design team.

The Ned NoMad will offer a mix of members-only and public spaces, including 167 bedrooms 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 day classic Italian restaurant.
