Inspiring Meeting Rooms – An inspiring, stimulating meeting room is the very first step towards creative and productive meetings. Unconventional design, surprising features, breathtaking views – these can all combine to make you think in different, innovative ways.
Here are five outstanding and inspiring meeting rooms in London, and they’re all available to for you to book through Hire Space.
In the past, there’s been an air of hushed seriousness and opaqueness attached to the image of the conference room. But nowadays, with the disruptive mindset unique to startups, the rulebook on what a conference room “should be” has been tossed out the window.
Many companies have realized all that a conference room truly needs is to have common space for collaboration, and how you achieve that is entirely up to you.
At Highfive we like to inspire and discuss the new way to work, which is why we created a list of five conference rooms we love.
While these five conference rooms are very different from each other, they do have a few common tendencies, such as a view, the use of surprising objects or materials, bright colors, a high degree of mobility, accommodating and welcoming to multiple work styles (group or individual, impromptu or planned, in-person or web conferencing), and a bent toward transparency (often literally), personality, playfulness, and unconventionality. See for yourself!

#3 Meeting Rooms at Hoxton Hotel Holborn
When you step into what’s known as ‘The Apartment’, you can imagine Don Draper, whisky in hand, deep in thought, sinking into one of the polished mahogany meeting chairs. It’s exactly where Don would have worked had he been in 21st Century London.
