Bureau is excited to announce its partnership with the iconic Maranui Cafe near Wellington Airport.
We'll be powering the meeting room booking system for the Maranui Club Lounge Meeting Space in the Maranui Surf Lifesaving Club at Lyall Bay. That means you can now book online for a beautiful meeting space near Wellington airport.
Maranui Cafe is one of the best restaurants in Wellington - and catering is available to users of the meeting room. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex - Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and their 'little bump' visited Maranui Cafe to talk to meet Jazz Thornton and Genevieve Mora, co-founders of Voices of Hope, a charity hoping to break down the stigma around mental illness.
But you don't have to be a member of the royal family to book the Maranui Club Lounge meeting space. It's a function space close to Wellington airport, with sweeping views of Lyall Bay. It's Ideal for inspirational away days, planning days, off-site meetings, workshops and seminars. Located on the ground floor of the Maranui Surf Lifesaving Club building, beneath the popular Maranui Cafe, this fresh, new space has everything you need to host a memorable and relaxed event.
You can only book full days at this wonderfully unique, serviced conference space.

It's $500 per day + GST. Beautifully simple.
Bureau is the best-priced coworking office space in Wellington. Our day passes are $29, and monthly memberships start from $69. So how can our building and furniture also be the best?
Our shared office at 158 the Terrace is an A-grade 100% NBS property designed Athfield Architects. Our flexible office furniture is designed and directed by Goldsworthy, and augmented with powered sit/stand desks and automated day lockers through our partnership with Powercore.
Q: How can Bureau offer the best coworking space in Wellington at the lowest prices?
A: Because of Kisi.
Bureau is the first company to incorporate Kisi’s groundbreaking cloud-based access control technology into a New Zealand business - allowing our day pass users and members to access our flexible shared office using their smartphone as a key.
Day pass users and members download the Kisi app to their smartphone - it’s available for free through App Store for iOS and Google Play for Android. Kisi’s cloud access control system is integrated with our online booking and membership platform.
Simply sign up online for a day pass or a monthly membership, and you’re good to go. Whether you’re a 24/7 member or a weekend warrior, Kisi knows who you are and when you’re allowed to be in there. It lets you into the coworking office with a swipe. Our 24/7 cameras monitor co office space comings and goings for safety and additional security.
Bureau can offer the best coworking space in Wellington at the best price because Kisi frees you from having to pay for someone to issue expensive keytags and open the door for you. It’s that simple.
We’re proud to announce that Bureau is now an Ambassador and Reseller for US-based Kisi Cloud Access Control System. That means we can install Kisi in your office or shared space and advise you on how to make the most of it too.
If working from home is not working for you, or you’re in an office that could benefit from an automated cloud access system, come try Kisi at Bureau.
Whether you’re travelling to Wellington for business and need somewhere to work, or you’re a local who needs a productive change of scene, a Bureau day pass is your ticket to a productive time in a great workspace.
You can buy a single day pass or a stack, and you’re all set to go.
Download our access app, stroll on up to level 1, 158 The Terrace and use your smartphone as a key.
A single day pass will automatically deduct from your account when you enter, and you’ll have unlimited access until 5.30pm.
If you want out of hours access, we’ve got Nights & Weekends memberships available too.
And of course if you want to settle down among Bureau’s delightful nooks and crannies you can join our monthly members and get anything from a casual powered sit/stand desk to a dedicated workstation of your own.
Come try us out.
This one's for all the coworking space owner operators out there.
I'm going to collect some answers and report on the results!
If you’re looking for small Wellington meeting rooms for interviews, training, coaching or… erm, meetings - we’ve come up with a way to make your life a whole lot easier by creating an instant, easy online book and pay system for meetings in Wellington on the Terrace.
Meeting room hire shouldn’t be a drag. Booking a meeting space in Wellington used to be. You had to crawl through sharedspace.co.nz or sharedworkspace.co.nz, search through dozens of meeting rooms, phone someone up, negotiate availability and terms, arrange invoicing, broker access, extract WiFi passwords and pay someone to fix all the screens and phones you smashed in anger.
Wellington meeting venues can make cafe meetings seem like the best worst choice - but cafes are no good for anything private, official or productive. Meeting room hire in Wellington needs a shake up. We think we’ve done it. See if you agree...
We’ve created a meeting venue on the Terrace that's simple, affordable and easy to use. You can instantly book and pay for online and receive instant confirmation. You can send out invites to all your guests and when you arrive for your meeting, the meeting space will be unlocked and your booking will be displayed on a tablet by the door. If you need a meeting room rental for 8 people or less - say training room hire, meeting space rental for interviews, cheap meeting rooms for remote team gatherings or a corporate meeting venue for an out-of-town pow-wow - Bureau’s meeting venue at the top of the Terrace is the Wellington meeting room of your dreams.
You can book room hire BY THE HOUR. By the half-hour, actually. And you’ll get so much more than a beautifully designed meeting space. Our meeting room facilities include:
Small room hire doesn’t get better than $25 per hour + GST.
Book from 30 mins - 8 hours, 8.30am-5.00pm Mon - Fri
Want meeting rooms space for rent outside of business hours?
Easy. Become a Bureau Shared Office Member from just $69/month.
Members can use the meeting room for FREE when it’s not booked. You can book 24/7, 365 and cancel and amend your bookings.
From $199/month, you start to get really cheap room hire - $5 per hour to book. Plus you’ll have 24/7 hotdesk access to our Shared Office on flexible month-to-month terms.
Dedicated Desk members can book the meeting room space for $1/ hour. Yes, really.
Meeting venue hire doesn’t get easier or more affordable than Bureau Workspaces at 158 The Terrace.
We’re redefining meetings on the Terrace in Wellington.
*Pot plant may be dead by the time you read this. We tried to save it. Our cofounder even sang to it once. "Elevation" from U2's album "All That You Can't Leave Behind." Didn't work.
To celebrate national coworking day, we're looking back to look to the future. Bureau Workspaces began when a writer, a furniture designer and a management consultant walked into a cafe: We had nowhere else to meet. Now we’ve got a shared office and meeting space on the Terrace. And you can come too! Here’s how it all began...
The writer hated working from home. Who could have guessed that the cheapest, most convenient option could be so deeply unsatisfying?
The furniture designer was working from his workshop - which makes sense until you try to do your GST in a swirl of delivery boxes, sawdust and power tools.
The consultant had work/life separation, but when working from client sites, he'd sometimes get squeezed into makeshift nooks and crannies that weren't ideal for doing great work.
We were all living the future of work. We’d consciously uncoupled from conventional jobs and conventional workspaces. But freedom’s just another word for nowhere to sit. The future of work wasn’t quite working for us.
Working from home can make a nice change - but it’s not a great idea to make it into a habit. It’s isolating, and unhealthy. It makes routines difficult and interruptions a given. Seriously, how many times can you open the fridge in a day? For people who manage a busy business involving a shop floor or a kitchen, it’s great to have somewhere else to go to take care of the back end. For independent contractors, having your own workspace helps give you the independence that you went out on your own for.
Libraries and cafes are OK for short term tasks - but they’re cunningly designed to be small and bustling because they literally do not want you there all day. Meeting potential clients in bars and cafes isn’t always ideal.
These insights set cofounder Arthur Meek off on a round-the-world odyssey investigating the future of workspaces by looking at coworking operations in NZ, the UK and throughout the US.
What he found was that there's room for different kinds of coworking spaces for different people's needs, but that too many spaces are targeted at the same crowd. Young, loud and startup-y. Or corporate types trying to look young, loud and startup-y. Perfect for those who like that kind of thing. A non-starter for those who don't. There wasn't much around for people who wanted something simple, beautiful and efficient. Something that just works, so you can just get on with your work.
So Bureau was born. Beautiful, simple, comfortable and affordable.
We're a comfortable shared office and meeting space in Wellington. We're all about creating and celebrating productive environments where it's nice to spend your time.
