The luxurious playground for Manhattan’s elite, like its sister property in London, was conceived by Soho House founder Nick Jones. Soho House Design collaborated with Stonehill Taylor on the interior design of the Ned NoMad giving it vintage touches that allude to the grandeur of the Gatsby era. Inside, there are 167 rooms inspired by the Art Deco movement that range from an opulent overnight stay accommodation to a luxe, long-term studio. The club is also home to renowned restaurants and bars, including city’s first Cecconi’s 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 at the top of the Beaux Arts–style Johnston Building, Ned’s Club rooftop lounge embodies 1920s nostalgia with an unobstructed view of NYC’s definitive landmark of the era, the Empire State Building. And while being a Soho House member could help facilitate the application process, Ned’s Club membership is separate; applications can be completed directly on their website. 1170 Broadway, New York

Completely reinventing the private members club scene in Manhattan amidst the pandemic, Zero Bond set out to simply create a home-away-from-home environment for guests to work, relax, and connect. The 20,000 square-foot space spans over two floors, offering a constellation of bespoke experiences, including world-class dining with the Omakase Room, the ability to store rare vintage wines and host speakeasy soirées in the Baccarat Room, and luxurious personal care services from brands like Barbara Sturm. The club quickly drew in a sophisticated crowd of New Yorkers and celebrities alike as it boasts its dedication to upholding a strict privacy policy — ultimately fostering an atmosphere for innovators, thought leaders, and tastemakers across multiple industries to freely gather and embrace the community. Zero Bond maintains a rather rigorous process to become a member, but to begin the process, one must visit the website to fill out the initial application. 0 Bond St, New York
