The Sassoon Beer Board Room | Free Word

In a Nutshell

The Sassoon Beer functions as a boardroom and flexible, multipurpose space. Our beautifully designed Wiesner-Hager boardroom table is adjustable for classes, rehearsals and conferences. Additionally, the in-built power supplies in the table offer easy access to power for multiple laptops, making this room an ideal option for a large co-working space.

The Sassoon Beer accommodates various set ups, from a small theatre space ideal for seminars (for up to 30 attendees), to exam rooms, rehearsed readings, mindfulness classes and more. If you have bespoke requirements for your booking, the Sassoon Beer could be the perfect fit.
