JOINING THE WORKING CLUB
The Great Room, a hospitality-inspired co-working space, lets you work and meet in style
Imagine plush furnishings, leather armchairs, a waft of freshly roasted speciality coffee perhaps. You might think you’ve stepped into the foyer of a luxurious business hotel, but it is The Great Room, Raffles Place’s latest hospitality-inspired co-working space.
This 15,000 sq ft venue is designed by Distillery Studio, the people behind the chic interiors of the Club Hotel and Manhattan Bar at Regent Hotel Singapore. The name The Great Room references the term for a communal room in large American houses.
Like its namesake, this co-working space is a gathering point, a meeting of people and minds where you can work, talk shop, network, or simply wind down. And all with a personal touch—business concierges to facilitate interactions between members, organise public and private events to keep the Rolodex growing, complimentary Monday breakfasts, and even cookies in the evenings for those working late!
More than 100 companies, in fields as diverse as finance and investment, technology, creative and design, have already signed up to be part of The Great Room. Some of the other perks they enjoy as members include high speed Internet and WiFi, video conferencing facilities, use of lounges and nooks, private phone booths, and complimentary Papa Palheta coffee and tea.
With customisable membership packages, you can get as plugged in and comfy as you’d like, or keep it free and easy. Dedicated office spaces furnished with Okoume timber desks and leather task chairs are available (from $2,500 a month) for two-men teams and upwards. Or choose the Hot Room package (from $750 a month), where you get to use private offices for an allocated amount of time each month. For an even more flexible arrangement, go for the virtual office option ($175 a month) where you enjoy corporate address and mail handling services, or simply use the space as a day room, working at the lounge or hot desks ($70 a day). Setting up shop has never been quite this easy.
