Northside Meetings with The Letter Lounge Café & Gifts

Meeting rooms and training venue in Brisbane

Changes ahead: Speak Up Studio is moving in!

In December, Speak Up Studio will join us at 110 Windsor Rd, working alongside The Letter Lounge Café.

Speak Up is a local performing arts school, offering classes and school holiday programs for primary-school-aged children. Speak Up is a Windsor Road local: they have been working from a small studio space in the Old Post Office Building, and are looking forward to having more space.

The Letter Lounge Café & Gifts will continue unchanged: we’ll still offer your favourite Elixir Coffee and The Tea Centre leaf tea, we’ll still provide a quiet space for you to work or meet, we’ll continue to make our own cakes and savouries and offer a full café menu, we’ll still sell newspapers and milk, and we’ll continue to offer a program of events and workshops.

Speak Up will move into the space occupied by Northside Meetings. This means that Northside Meetings will close, and we’ll no longer offer meeting rooms for hire.

Why the change? The Letter Lounge and Speak Up are like a match made in heaven: we both celebrate literature, language and learning and we both provide opportunities for people to develop their interests.

Speak Up Studio will make full, active use of the lovely building at 110 Windsor Rd, in a way that Northside Meetings couldn’t. The client base for Northside Meetings was small, and the rooms often sat empty.

At The Letter Lounge, we’re excited about the changes that 2018 will bring. We’ve got visions of a rotating literary menu, new offerings to appeal to school-aged children, an increased range of word-themed gifts, and a strong program of events about writing and art. We’re also looking forward to making better use of our lovely courtyard garden: Anne-Maree is under strict instructions to finish the mural before our huge shade umbrella is installed.

The Northside Meetings meeting rooms will gradually close from early December 2017. We will honour all existing bookings for 2017, but won’t take new bookings for dates after 1 December.

If you’ve got any questions about what’s ahead for The Letter Lounge and Northside Meetings, please don’t hesitate to contact us – you can call the shop on 3368 1088 or call our mobiles: Judy – 0431 909 684 or Anne-Maree – 0431 918 583.

A quiet place to meet and work

Northside Meetings with The Letter Lounge Café & Gifts is a place to work, talk, read, meet and eat. It’s a training venue, meetings venue and cafe, all rolled into one.

It’s a place that’s designed to make your work easier: an office away from the office, and a home away from home. You’ll find a space to work and think, a pace that’s relaxed and calm, and an atmosphere of quiet concentration.

Let us look after you so that you can look after your work.
