The Oak Room @ Nexus

Exclusive special event space Bangsar South KL

Perhaps meeting at hotel lobbies really is not the right place to be meeting important clients. Perhaps an alternative meeting space somewhere closer to town is required.

The Oak Room is “the creative” alternative to the lacklustre office meeting environment. One can say meeting up at The Oak Room offers a new way of doing business too. Coupled with an impressive selection of menu for exquisite dining, The Oak Room provides luxurious facilities and high standard professional services for business functions and corporate events.

In addition, The Oak Room offers exclusive venue hire services for special occasions such as celebratory meals, receptions, launches, luncheons, talks and concerts.

This is the privilege given to The Oak Room members and the aim is simply to provide an atmosphere that makes their business meetings more productive or their functions and events grander.
