Exclusive business dining club for Business Leaders, Entrepreneurs, CEOs and Company Directors.

Join us in first class surroundings with some of the best of business breed from across London and the South East. Build great long-lasting business relationships with like-minded peers and enjoy dining in some of the UK's top venues.

Imagine sitting on a table of 10 business leaders, CEO's and Company Directors discussing business issues, current affairs and sharing a wealth of knowledge in  the comfort of a private dining room in a first class dining establishment.  Making valuable connections in an easy 'non selling' environment and opening doors that may otherwise remained closed.

If you are looking for an environment which encourages peer group learning and topical business debate then The Business Lounge is most definitely for you.

Our members benefit from the combined experience, knowledge and connections of the people behind hundreds of the UK's leading organisations.

About Us

The Business Lounge is governed by the 'Chatham House Rule'

Make connections in an environment without the worry of being directly 'sold to'.

"When a meeting, or part hereof, is held under the Chatham House rule participants are free to use the information received, but neither the identity, nor the affiliation of the speaker(s), nor that of any other participant can be revealed"

The Business Lounge is a think tank, a debating society and a club where business owners can share their expertise and knowledge, make new connections, voice their opinions openly and enjoy fine dining at its best.

We are not a conventional networking group and the overt selling of products and services is frowned upon at the dining table. This said, many millions of pounds worth of business has taken place between our members since our launch in 2010.

Membership application is invited exclusively and open to business owners, managing & company directors, chairpersons, and CEOs.

Dinner/Event Cancellation Policy
Full refund payable if 14 days + notice of cancellation.
50% refund payable if more than 7 days and less than 14  days notice of cancellation.
No refund payable if less than 7 days notice of cancellation.
