Roseate Hotels & Resorts, currently running six hospitality projects across India and the UK, have marked their entry into the newly-evolving landscape of co-working with the recent debut of their uber luxurious Upstage Club. Located in Roseate House in New Delhi, this members-only club is Bird Hospitality Group’s response to the revolutionary shift in what high-end guests wish to derive from their stay. This innovative concept could drive more hotels to follow suit. Entrepreneurs and startups are sure to benefit from the facilities offered as well as its proximity to the airport.
Primarily designed to provide an enriching work environment, Upstage Club also boasts great amenities for its members. Meticulously planned, the premium club comprises two compact meeting halls, a large boardroom and a bouquet of small meeting spaces and capsules to fulfil every requirement of members who choose to work out of this space. The opulent club can easily accommodate over a hundred guests and is operational from 9 am to 9 pm every day. It is designed to offer an entire repertoire of services to enterprises and business travellers looking to rent an informal workplace setting. In addition to this, the members also enjoy access to Upstage— a 4K cinema and auditorium at Roseate House New Delhi.
The most striking feature of this semi-formal, plug-and-play club is the way it switches from a formal setting during the day to an evening après work soiree. Spread across 4,500 square feet, the Upstage Club features a long series of flexible co-working zones and conference rooms. These deftly transition into bar and lounge areas at dusk. Embracing the hotel brand’s timeless aesthetic style and signature design, the club’s interior displays sophistication and opulence with an undercurrent of playfulness to fill the atmosphere with vibrant energy.
The beautiful reception-cum-bar counter surrounded by horizontal brass bands spanning over 16 feet immediately sets the tone upon entrance. Overhead, one will find a geometric installation of light fixtures that are suspended and replicate the shape of the counter, while a news ticker puts on display the name of the movie set to be screened in the club’s cinema theatre.
These dynamic features serve to bring in an element of surprise and remarkably animate the interiors, which work in tandem to captivate visitors and create an infectious atmosphere of excitement and dynamism. The versatile workspace configurations and wide-angled conference rooms coupled with private pockets enable members to tailor the space as per their needs.
The club is also known for housing the urbane, chic and luxurious boutique, The Upstage Collect, which serves to showcase young and talented homegrown brands. Offering exquisite and elegant fashion and lifestyle pieces, Upstage Collect radiates a distinct Indian personality with global sensibility forming its core that is bound to leave guests in awe and spoilt for choice. This luxury retail boulevard is expected to become a much sought-after destination for the well-travelled Indian shopper. The Upstage Collect will allow guests to indulge in rich collections, at affordable prices, that reflect a blend of traditional and contemporary, featuring some of India’s most promising talent in fashion and design.
