The problem l.jpg


Many people based outside London travel into London regularly on business.

Unless they have a London office they have nowhere to meet clients

They also have nowhere to work between meetings

They also have nowhere to relax between meetings

The problem3 l.jpg


London trips need to be organised like a military campaign

Time is wasted travelling to other peoples offices

You have to carry a laptop and case wherever you go

You are cut off from your office: PA’s, print room, postal facilities etc.

Common solutions l.jpg



Hotel lobbies

Bars and pubs

Private Members Club

The IoD

A serviced office

Option 1 hotel lobbies bars pubs coffee shops l.jpg


Unimpressive place to meet contacts

Noisy, often messy and over-crowded

Phone calls are difficult to make.

Work on a laptop is difficult and poor wireless connectivity

Impossible to recharge a laptop or phone

Food and drink poor and/or expensive

Option 2 restaurants l.jpg


Expensive as regular meeting places

Only available at lunch or dinner

Cannot be used for work between meetings

Laptops cannot be used and phone calls frowned upon.

Option 3 private members clubs l.jpg


Private Member’s Clubs offer a private bar and restaurant that no-one else can use.

They are valuable if image and ambience are important to business

But they have no other useful business facilities – they are an extension of a London office not a substitute for one.

Slide8 l.jpg

They have “lean back” not “lean forward” seating – not designed for work

Mobile phones are banned or limited.

Laptops are discouraged or banned

Wireless connectivity is patchy

Hot-desk space limited

Office support is non-existent

Food and drink charges relatively high

Option 4 the institute of directors l.jpg

OPTION 4 – THE INSTITUTE OF DIRECTORS – not designed for work

A good meeting and working space with food and drink and business facilities

But can be crowded and hard to entertain clients

The premises in Pall Mall are not ideally located for many businesses

Has a style that does not appeal to everyone

Option 5 a serviced office l.jpg

OPTION 5 – A SERVICED OFFICE – not designed for work

A serviced office is low risk functional office space

London rents are high – typically £8000 per person per annum & everything is extra

Tenants pay for 5 days a week - 52 weeks a year.

It is a poor solution for those who visit London for only a few days a week

Support is poor & offices tend to be bland

The solution one alfred place l.jpg

THE SOLUTION: ONE ALFRED PLACE – not designed for work

A new kind of venue that combines the best of a private members club with the facilities you’d expect from your own London office

Provides the business focus and facilities of the Institute of Directors but with the style of a top London Club

The best of a members club l.jpg

THE BEST OF A MEMBERS’ CLUB – not designed for work

A welcoming ambience where you feel recognised and appreciated

A stylish environment to meet contacts or to relax

Food served wherever you are sitting throughout the day – breakfast, business lunch, dinner and an informal club menu

A stylish bar serving drinks throughout the day

Showers and changing facilities

Daily newspapers and magazines

But one alfred place is designed for work l.jpg
