IB Perks

From restaurants to gym memberships there are perks to being part of the IB family.  Let us know who else you’d like to see in the list

More Flexibility

Sometimes you just need to come in for an hour or so, so we’re now offering you even more flexibility than before.

You can book the lounge space by the hour. There are a couple of t’s & c’s
– Lounge Access can be booked from 9-6 pm
– It’s £3/hr and you can book for a maximum of 3 hours

You’ll find it in the app under ‘Book a Desk’.

If you have an active desk booking, private office or dedicated desk, you do not need to book lounge access.

Share Your thoughts

Can you believe it’s been 3 months since we last asked you that one question…

80% of you we’re happy with the service you’re receiving and that makes us really happy but we’re really striving for more as we learn, grow and dream together.

This month we’ve added a few things that you’ve requested. A ring light in The Snug and a new backdrop is on the way! We are sorting out shades for phonebooths 1 & 2. There is now great air con in The Rec which not only means a cool space to work but also means more fans for the rest of the space. Our educational & social events have all been well attended and our programme will continue to grow as we learn.

Let us know how you think we are doing here

Members Perks

We have a great offer for IB members from Better Gym. They are offering a Lambeth-wide membership for their 9 gyms across the borough for just £34.95 per month – that’s 35% off the normal price of £54 (or you can pay £350 for an annual membership)!

This is an all inclusive (gym-swim-fitness classes) membership that you can use at any time – click here to see more.

We need a minimum of 10 members to sign up to take advantage of this offer so if you’d like to gym it and join us send an email to with ‘Gym It’ in the title and we’ll be in touch

Answer With Impact

We get asked a lot of questions and we welcome them. We’ve decided to dedicate a bit of the update to some FAQ’s, kinda like the Agony Aunt corner in Smash Hits (or if you are a Sun reader, think Dear Deidre). We present to you “Answers With Impact”.

If you have any questions about memberships, the space, hosting, entrepreneurship, entrepreneurial well being etc. then drop us a note in the suggestions box and we’ll do our best to answer it for you here.

Dear IB,

        How long can I stay in the space after 6 pm?

Signed – A member who has not attended the New Member’s meeting.

Hi Member!

Flexi members who have attended a New Members Meeting can stay in the space till 8pm, Dedicated Desk members can stay until 11pm.

As there is no host after 6pm, any members who have not attended the New Members Meeting must leave the space as the closing up procedure is covered in this meeting.

Dear IB,

         How does my member credit work?

Hi Member,

Flexi members receive 24 credits to use on meeting rooms. (The Snug, The Den, The Gallery and Red Records) and 100 credits to use on our event spaces (The Academy, The Rec, The BlackBar and The Lounge). Dedicated Desk members receive 48 credits for meeting rooms and 200 for event spaces. Each credit is equal to £1.

Event spaces have a minimum booking time of 3 hours. When you book a space, your credit will be used first before you are charged with your members’ discount applied to the remainder.

So for example, a Flexi member booking The Den for 2 hours at £14p/h would take 24 of your credits and the remaining £4 would be discounted by 40% leaving you £2.40 to pay.
