The Ned

The Ned is located in the former Midland Bank building in the City and has been designed and created with the building’s former heritage in mind.

As well as a hotel, the building is home to eight restaurants serving a range of culinary delights including Italian, British, Asian-Pacific and French. Live music is played daily with special evening events such as Sunday Swing and New Music Monday.

Brasserie Zedel

If you fancy stepping back to a different era, Brasserie Zedel offers you a wonderful French experience set in the 1930s, but here in the heart of Piccadilly. From the street you enter into a Parisian café where you can enjoy breakfast, light lunches and evening meals. From there head downstairs to the Brasserie Zedel and Bar American where not only will you enjoy traditional French food but live music, cabaret, comedy and musical theatre evenings.

Quecum Bar

If you’re looking for something cool, chic and inviting, head over to Battersea and check out Quecum Bar. Its ambience is a mixture of someone’s living room with a dash of Belle Epoque Parisian charm. It’s full of plants, pictures, candles and twinkling lights and the order of the day is charming old-school romance. If you’ve had a row with your loved one and want the perfect setting to make up, this is the place for you. Live music is a mixture of jazz and gypsy swing and is played every evening other than on Wednesdays. You’ll find a wonderful range of traditional French dishes on the menu.
