Can there be symmetry in difference? We think so. At 1880, everything we do is about capturing the magic feeling that happens when people, perspectives and ideas come together effortlessly. As the place where contradictions converge, our collective spirit celebrates our favourite undiscovered territory – the common ground that lies between self and other.
Our members have access to a range of unique, money-can’t-buy experiences. On average, we have 90 events at 1880 each month, including salon nights, fireside chats, talks, trivia nights, secret suppers, comedy nights, film premieres, corporate events, product launches, parties, birthdays, weddings, wine tastings, programming for kids and the list goes on.
We always push boundaries. A Salon is characteristic of 1880. The night often starts with some questions and sets out to ask even more. A diverse spectrum of panellists are invited to be at the roundtable but anyone in the room is welcome to interject at any point in time. That’s how humans evolve - by conversing and constantly challenging what we think we know.
We know how to have fun. We throw extravagant yet irreverent parties once every quarter with plenty of bad behaviour and times of uninhibited revelry.
We spark connections From Trivia Nights, Drag Bingo, Comedy Nights, to intimate secret suppers, there are opportunities to connect with other incredible individuals at 1880.
For the longest time, the dream has been sex, drugs, and rock‘n’roll. Now, we want to party like a rockstar and live a great healthy lifestyle. Your physical and mental health matter to us. Start your week right with meditation sessions on Monday evenings conducted by members for members and join in regular yoga classes throughout the week.
We take members on once-in-a-lifetime experiences overseas. For instance, in March 2019, a group of 90 members and their immediate family joined us in visiting His Holiness the Dalai Lama in Dharamsala, India.
1880’s spaces are designed to take you out of the ordinary, while still offering you the comfort of being in your element, from the moment you step through our doors. There’s always room to uncover new ground, and where you can be you.
A spa and grooming salon unlike any you’ve ever known, Mei focuses on humans, not just men or women. Regardless of gender, we take the same universal approach to all our treatments: from classic shaves to deep-tissue back rubs, everything we do foregrounds the oldest and most effective treatment tools in the world – our hands. This fundamentally human instrument grounds every experience at Mei, creating a sensory treat like no other.
Bardo represents our radically different approach to work. One where it’s not like work meets play – it’s more like work met play, fell in love, got married, and gave birth to the most engaging, inspiring day you ever had. Setting a new bar for productivity, thought leadership, and water cooler conversation, our community model fosters collaboration and participation so that work, ideas, and opportunities thrive.
