One of London’s best-loved restaurants is revolutionising the co-working scene by becoming a Workologie co-working space.
Bluebird Chelsea, located on the internationally revered King’s Road, has been an icon on London’s dining and drinking scene for decades. Starting out as the location for the Bluebird Motor Company in the 1920s, the building has undergone numerous refurbishments over the years to protect its history and presence in the local neighbourhood. Regularly frequented by locals and creative entrepreneurs, this is a place to see, be seen and enjoy life.
This month, Bluebird Chelsea has firmed up is place as a London destination by linking up with a revolutionary new co-working space provider. Workologie provides affordable access to a growing network of stylish, communal and co-working day spaces across London. Their venues are hand-picked from a selection of London hospitality venues that are ideal for remote working, liaising on collaborative projects and generally doing business.
The idea behind Workologie is the better use of space. Let’s face it, space in London is hard to find and comes at a premium when you do find it. It’s no wonder that co-working has taken off in such a big way in the city. But Workologie takes this a step further. Restaurant spaces are often under-used during the day. Many restaurants and bars in London have internationally-acclaimed design credentials to, and of course come with plenty of tables, chairs, sofas, coffee and Wi-Fi. So turning them into daytime co-working spaces seems like a perfect solution.
Workologie is the brainchild of Hugo Campbell-Davys, also the founder of private members’ club and lifestyle community, Urbanologie. As well as being nominated for a WIRED Innovation in Travel Award in 2016, Urbanologies has been recognised as one of the world’s best travel apps.
“We are delighted to be partnering with Bluebird to launch the Workologie concept and developing this new hospitality business – in such an iconic and timeless venue, which shares our very own ethos and values as innovators.” – Hugo Campbell-Davys, Workologie founder
The Workologie space at Bluebird is offering exclusive daytime (9:00 to 17:30) access to a dedicated area of the premises. Workologie members can book a space at Bluebird Chelsea in advance to ensure there’s room for everyone on any given day. Members also receive preferential rates to hire in-house private meeting and dining rooms. They also receive invitations to exclusive events. Membership is flexible, available on a pay-as-you-go basis at a standard daytime cost of £10 for Urbanologie members, and £20 for non-members.
There are plans to open more venues across London as well, to create a network of co-working spaces in cool venues such as this.
