Work + Play at Malmaison Leeds

The iconic Malmaison Leeds today launches its new meetings and events space, Work + Play, following a significant investment.

Designed to meet the needs of today’s dynamic businesses and entrepreneurs, Work + Play seamlessly blends inspirational style with flexibility and technology to create a revolutionary way of working that suits the modern worker.

Situated in the gorgeously converted former Leeds City Tramways Office, with break-out spaces tailored to communal working, and edgy artwork inspired by the city, it offers an inspiring location for collaboration and idea creation.

The space is made up of four meeting rooms and two soundproof glass pods that can each be used individually or merged to host larger events. Every room has a built-in media centre and wireless TV screen – making it simple for users to plug in and play. Guests can switch effortlessly between laptops and inputs, ensuring conversations flow quickly and nothing stands in the way of progress.
Private dining from the outstanding Chez Mal brasserie is available in each of the rooms, and guests can enjoy complimentary soft drinks and delicious nibbles in the breakout area throughout the day.

The rooms are available to rent either by the day or – a first for hotels in Leeds – by the hour. The introduction of Work + Play has seen capacity for events at the hotel increase to 150, or sit-down dinners for between 60 – 120 people. There’s plenty on offer for after-work team building, from wine tasting and cocktail making to bar take-overs and DJs, meaning it is a truly adaptable space.

Malmaison Leeds is the fourth Malmaison to welcome Work + Play, following the success of the brand in Manchester, Birmingham, and Brighton.

Scott Harper, COO of Malmaison Hotel du Vin said, “We’re incredibly proud of the fantastic response to Work + Play so far, and are delighted to now be introducing the concept to Leeds. As the world becomes increasingly digitalised and connected our vision to provide people with a practical and fun space to work on the go, has never been more relevant.”
