One Alfred Place, a private members’ club in central London, has launched a new membership scheme for businesses based outside of the capital.
The new 100 Mile Club is designed for business people based at least one hundred miles outside of Central London. For £850 a year, a saving of £400 on the standard membership, members have full access to the club.
The club aims to cater to the needs of business users, with office facilities including meeting areas, private board rooms and presentation suites. The interior is filled with bespoke furniture and contemporary art, including works by Andy Warhol and Barbara Hepworth.
Based near King’s Cross International and Euston, and just off Tottenham Court Road, the club also has a restaurant, showers, lockers and a small bedroom.
Rob Shreeve, founder of One Alfred Place, commented: “London is full of people doing business in hotel lobbies and coffee shops. These are not places to impress clients or have serious business meetings.
“People travelling from outside London on business need a stylish environment where they can meet, eat, work and network which is where the idea for One Alfred Place came from.”
