A Little About This Space

Moments away from the King’s Road's luxury boutiques, destination restaurants and unique labels, this former postal sorting office on Chelsea Manor Street is available to rent for events and pop-up retail. There's a ground floor hall, basement and yard – all of which can be hired separately.


In the week, Chelsea’s well-heeled, fashion-forward locals come to the King’s Road for brunch and a browse around the shops, and nearby bars and restaurants such as The Ivy Chelsea Garden and The Trafalgar can get lively in the evenings. Things get busier towards the end of the week and at the weekends as tourists join the crowd wandering down from the Saatchi Gallery. Sloane Square and South Kensington stations are both a 10-minute walk away.


Your nearest neighbour is V4 Vintage Boutique on the corner of Chelsea Manor Street and the King’s Road. Local staples such as The Chelsea Gardener and Cabbages & Roses are around the corner on Sydney Street, and nearby brands on the King’s Road include Jaeger and Anthropologie.

Home Truths

This is a very large space, so it’s mostly suitable for bigger events.

The price quoted is for the ground floor space. The ground floor hall, basement and yard can be rented individually or as a whole venue.

There is no kitchen on site. However, there is ample electricity and a part of the venue where the kitchen equipment can be brought in, and other catering events have been hugely successful here with this set up in the past.
