Member lounges

116 Pall Mall is the IoD's Grade I-listed premises in the heart of London, steeped in a rich history that dates back nearly 200 years.

During the coronavirus pandemic we have had to close our doors, but we're delighted to welcome members back to our lounges on weekdays between 8am and 10pm.
