Ignite The Conversation

Trade

TRADE is member’s club for the hospitality industry, created with the aim of giving back to the industry. TRADE is a social space and hospitality hub with a focus on quality food and drink.

Hidden in a secret basement haven in Soho, far removed from the frenetic and intense activity of working life in London. It is somewhere to work from or to clock off after shift, with vibes ranging from a quick coffee, working lunch to dancing on tables.

It is somewhere to host tastings, network, share ideas and conversations, or tuck away in a corner with your laptop.

The club hosts regular educational masterclasses, tastings and kitchen takeovers, and partners with Pilotlight Campaign to ofer an open community space to for likeminded discussion.
