Set in an imposing, six-storey building at the heart of the most coveted postcode in Britain, 12 Hay Hill has pioneered ‘club-working’ as a modern way to do business.
Conceived as a private members’ club for business, it is the first to provide businesspeople with five-star service and a high-specification curated environment in which to meet, entertain, base their enterprise and conduct business. In an age where technology is increasingly blurring the line between the spheres of work and home-life, it modernises the very British concept of the private members’ club as a hive of activity as well as leisure.
While many other modern clubs shun business activity, 12 Hay Hill’s Director Stephanos Issaias explains that club-working offers the exclusivity, leisure space and social networking of the City clubs of old, combined with an unashamedly work-friendly environment. It’s this combination that makes 12 Hay Hill so different.
12 Hay Hill is completely international in its membership and outlook and has had an exciting year of growth, establishing itself as a leading barometer of trends in working culture. Its fast-growing membership comprises a diverse community of industry leaders, influencers and innovators.
From finance to fashion, the club prides itself on being a hub of inspiration where ideas are born and nurtured, deals are signed and business flourishes.
Members speak approvingly of 12 Hay Hill as a place where they are able to work, meet and impress seamlessly – the club’s restaurant offers fine dining, while a basement bar provides the perfect place to unwind with friends and colleagues.
The club curates an ever-changing backdrop of spectacular artwork, most of which is for sale. Nine meeting rooms offer private areas for board meetings, confidential conversations or private dining for members. Each has a distinct style, allowing members to choose the perfect environment for any client meeting. Facilities are constantly being updated and augmented and the club plans to open a new roof terrace overlooking Berkeley Square in the coming months.
Events for members feature some of Britain’s finest minds and thought leaders, and range from talks by business leaders and politicians to insights from leading brands and lively discussion of cultural or business developments.
One highlight of the club’s annual calendar is the 12 Hay Hill Davos Debrief, created in partnership with the Financial Times. The Debrief provides members and guests with thought-provoking content from business people and politicians who have spoken at the summit, who share their insights and analysis alongside celebrated Financial Times journalists and commentators.
In terms of the future, Issaias is planning to lead a management buyout, an indication of the confidence those running the club have in its future as a great British brand. There are also plans to take the pioneering concept
of 12 Hay Hill’s ‘club-working’ to other parts of the world, with sister clubs being considered in Continental Europe, the US, Middle East, China and Singapore.
