San Mei Space is a beautiful light filled building  in the what was the old Loughborough Hotel. Situated in the heart of Lambeth, it's close to Loughborough Junction Train and Oval Tube Stations with easy access to a number of bus routes. It's the perfect place to host training sessions, meetings, rehearsals, networking days and other events. The space can be hired for exclusive use hourly, daily or weekly and  accommodates around  20 people for sit down training events and board meetings, and between 30 - 50 people for rehearsals and standing networking events. Income from San Mei Space hire enables our gallery to support emerging artists and not for profit events, so there is the added bonus of knowing that when you hire from us, you're helping the local creative community.

Sam Mei space features 100sqm of open plan space. It is equipped with museum quality lighting - although the natural light is so good you that probably won’t need it- and has beautiful wooden floors. We can provide two tables and 20 chairs for your event and additional furniture can be hired for an extra cost if your event requires it. There is a grand piano in the space and we can provide audio-visual equipment including an HD CCTV system for live streaming, a projector and Wi-Fi access.


San Mei Gallery space has it's own entrance door and for your hire you will have exclusive use of the gallery space and kitchenette and toilet/shower room. Although unfortunately there isn’t access to a fully equipped kitchen, your event can be catered by our in house team at Café 89 for an additional fee. Alternatively you can bring pre-prepared food in.

San Mei also runs as a gallery and holds a collection of contemporary artworks that can be installed for your meeting or event at no extra cost.
