Exclusive to IoD members and guests
One of the many benefits to being an IoD member is having access to our historic lounges at 116 Pall Mall.
These impressive rooms can be used for meetings or as a base away from the office, free of charge and without appointment.
We have two member lounges – Directors’ and Carlton. Each room has been redesigned by Russell Sage Studio, who has worked with a number of London’s most famous private venues including the Royal Automobile Club and the House of St Barnabas.
Not only have we built upon the heritage of our rooms but also made them more welcoming and inviting to all our members. For example, the military paintings in the Directors’ Room date back to when 116 Pall Mall was the United Service Club - the meeting place for senior officers of the Army and Navy, where the Iron Duke once held court with old comrades of Waterloo.
We have also increased the number of power points to create more working spaces and introduced different kinds of seating options. Many of our members like to dine in the member lounges and we have recently teamed up with award-winning caterers Benugo to provide you with a brand-new menu packed full of fresh, locally sourced and seasonal ingredients.
The lounges open for breakfast from 8am (breakfast is served throughout the day) and as well as great coffee, cakes, salads and sandwiches, you may also enjoy warm fruit scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream.
