The Great Room, which combines elements of a private members’ club with co-working spaces, has expanded to its second location in Singapore – the CBD’s Centennial Tower.
Spanning 3,344.5m2 over two floors with a 360-degree wrap-around view of downtown Singapore, The Great Room says the opening is a response to strong demand for its first One George Street location, which launched in 2016.
The Great Room experience begins at The Drawing Room, which serves as a reception area housing the Bar and Café, and an event space for members to gather for evening cocktails and “large-scale fireside chats”.
A more intimate Club Lounge caters specially to The Great Room Business Club members, which The Great Room says provides access to a social and professional network.
The Circle brings to mind a private supper club, where deals are done around the design team’s interpretation of the modern bonfire. “Like-minded tribes” from eight to 80 pax can gather in a variety of meeting spaces – a 14-pax boardroom; Studio, for 16 pax; Parlour, for six pax; or study, also for six – whether for learning, meeting, impressing or entertaining.
Hot desks and hot offices are also available.
Co-founder and CEO, Jaelle Ang, said: “We wanted to create an all-encompassing work and play experience… This opening further cements our purpose to change the way people feel about going to work. Because beyond productivity, work is also about new conversations, connections, inspiration, contemplation and repose. It’s our job to design the perfect backdrop to the highlights of life happening.”
The Great Room will also have a business and cultural programme for members, focusing on growth across professional, personal, wellness, creativity and cultural development.
By end-2018, The Great Room expects to be serving a community of over 700 companies across its seven locations in four cities, namely Bangkok, Hong Kong, Jakarta and Singapore.
Membership at The Great Room is tiered, starting from a basic fee of S$750 (US$569.80) for hot desk and hot office access.
