The creators of Soho House are bringing an even fancier social club to Washington — The Ned, newly announced to open this winter.

The big picture: Neighboring the White House, the members-only club will be inspired by the Roaring Twenties and the site's Art Deco architecture, once home to Riggs Bank.

  • It'll take the upper three floors at President's Park on 734 15th Street NW.

The interior will be heavy on "vibrant gold, blue, and green," with custom mosaics beneath your feet.

  • The 10th floor will be a tribute to American presidents. A dining room, full of stained glass and "rich wooden accents," will try to evoke "the sun-drenched dining settings treasured during the Kennedy years," a news release says.
  • There will be a rooftop terrace and a loft restaurant.
  • As part of its curated art collections, the first installation displays in stark terms America's lack of women presidents, featuring 46 American women artists.

Context: The Ned has locations in London, New York, and Doha, and charges members about $5,000 a year.

  • The D.C. location would open within a six-building complex owned by the nonprofit Milken Institute, which plans to open the Milken Center for Advancing the American Dream next year.

What's next: Interested members can register their details on The Ned's website in advance of applications opening in May.
