Just another day at the office? Not quite. For the many creative new startups, entrepreneurs and international business travellers who choose co-working hub Cartel House as their base, the word “office” has taken on a whole new meaning.

We’re definitely not talking the bland old desk-and-internet-connection kind of shared office here. We’re talking the German luxury supercar of co-working spaces. You know, the hit-the-gym-on-the-second-floor-before-work kind of office. With the app where you can order your single-origin coffee or granola health breakfast delivered straight to your desk. The in-house barber next to the tailor that does handmade suiting and alterations kind of office, with the super-luxe common areas and free library, the stunning inner-city views and spectacular rooftop function venue.

The kind of office that attracts Cape Town’s (and the world’s) brightest and finest.

“The best part about moving our offices to Cartel House is that now you’re also right in the hub of some of the city’s most creative minds,” says CapeTownMagazine.com founder Marcus Zandhuis.

“If your business needs some kind of new service or technology, just pop your head out of your office and you’re almost guaranteed that there’ll be some bright young startup next door that specialises in doing exactly what you’re looking for,” he adds.

WELCOME TO CARTEL HOUSE

Cartel House at 113 Loop Street (where else?) is the flagship location of unique city office environment creators Inner City | Ideas Cartel, who offer some of the coolest luxury meeting spaces and co-working office solutions in Cape Town.

And, what makes this location unique is that it offers the complete business-leisure (the so-called “bleisure”) lifestyle package. It’s ideal for both the new startup entrepreneur and the established business person looking for an office away from the office (think gym, gourmet food, luxury office spaces and that epic rooftop venue).

But it’s just as suitable for the international traveller looking for a one-stop-shop of bleisure facilities, a central CBD location with everything you might need to conduct a bit of business during your Cape Town stayover.

Tip: Keen to check out the facilities before you commit? Make use of the Cartel House Monday Day Pass special.

THE LUXURY OF AN IN-HOUSE GYM, TAILOR AND BARBER

Imagine starting your mornings at Boost Bar, the second-floor gym that specialises in creating fast and efficient training solutions for busy people. Their mission is to help you achieve that perfect balance. You know, where you work hard and train effectively to stay fit and still have time to spend with your family and friends.

To do this, they’ve developed a series of Crossfit-inspired group Boost Sessions with cool names like Super Cross Func (a mix of Crossfit and functional training), Wonder Woman (specially made for strong, independent women) and The Frank Fit Grind (based on high-intensity interval training). But you also have the option of training on your own in private when there are no classes scheduled. Pricing is available on request, but you get amazing deals on Boost Classes and free use of the gym when purchasing a basic Cartel House membership.

Your membership also gets you a 10% discount on custom-made clothing at Lock Stock & Barrel, the first-floor tailor that’s rated as one of the best in Cape Town.

Blokes Hair, the in-house barber doesn’t only offer male members a monthly 10% discount on a cut and wash, but the ladies get 10% off a 30-minute manicure every month too.

EVERYTHING YOU NEED WITH A SLEEK CONCIERGE APP

At Cartel House, there’s no standing in lines during the busy lunch hour rush or breaking your concentration to get that caffeine fix. The in-house app lets you do everything from ordering coffee and meals to booking your gym sessions, boardrooms, function venues (including the amazing rooftop facility) and grooming appointments quickly and easily – so you can focus on your business.

In the near future, you’ll be able to book your accommodation (oh, yeah, did we mention that Cartel House is launching a hotel in the building soon?) and transport from this free-to-download concierge app.

GOURMET FOOD & COFFEE

Of course, the flagship outlet of exquisite French-themed restaurant Café du Cap is housed on the ground floor of the Cartel House building – they’re famous for great coffee and fantastic make-your-own R55 lunch salads. But, with in-house Cartel Coffee bar on the third floor, you can also get an excellent flat white (served by some of the most delightful and experienced baristas in the CBD) and your lunch delivered right to your desk.

The in-house food, ordered through the mobile app and powered by Source Food, is best described as uncomplicated gourmet. It’s good, familiar food – think beer-battered hake with skinny fries and homemade tartare, honied quinoa with roast butternut and marinated chickpeas, decadent gourmet steak sandwich and Thai beef salad – but it’s painstakingly prepared and beautifully presented. So much so that you’re as comfortable in ordering it for lunch as you are with having it served to an important business liaison.

What’s more, you get access to fully fitted kitchen spaces, complete with fridges, microwaves and pod coffee machines. You know, for prepping your own lunch. And you can enjoy it at any of the super-comfy couches and seating in the beautifully decorated communal spaces – complete with a free library for your reading pleasure.

Tip: Don’t pack breakfast on Fridays, because that’s when Cartel House serves all its members free flapjacks with all the trimmings.

EPIC FUNCTION VENUES

Cartel House is perhaps the only space in Cape Town that gives you the option of booking either a 6–8 seater boardroom, complete with flat-screen TV and both Mac and PC connectability, or upscaling your boardroom booking to facilitate up to 20 or 40 people.

And, if you still need more space, there are loads of rooftops for film shoots and functions. The Cartel Rooftop (pictured above) in De Waterkant is fully-kitted with a rooftop bar and kitchen, making it ideal for everything from weddings and photo shoots to product launches and corporate events. What's more, there's also an auditorium int he same building and the team can help you plan and execute your event here, too.

The Cartel House rooftop (on levels 10 and 11) at Loop Street features an incredible view of the city and the Table Mountain that makes it ideal for film and photo shoots.

Enquire about booking any of these rooftop and events spaces by emailing Nina Van Deventer at nina@nvdproperty.co.za.

ULTRA-LUXE OFFICE SPACE

With all the awesome lifestyle features on offer, it’s probably worth reminding you that Cartel House is a luxury co-working space – or a “five-star office hotel” as the founder likes to call it.

That means you have your choice of co-working spaces, private offices and premium serviced company office – all with lightning-fast internet, a business address and shared reception areas. Check out their suite of shared office solutions.

Tip: Day passes are available, but the boxing clever way to get the complete Cartel House experience is to get yourself a co-working space with full Cartel House membership for only R4000.
