We’re super excited to tell you that we’re partnering with a prestigious social working space in Oslo, Telegrafen. Set to be the new ‘in’ place to work and play from Spring 2021. We believe that this is the future of socialising and working in a post-Covid world, as well as being one of the top places to play shuffleboard in Oslo.
Here’s an insider peek at Telegrafen – the new prestigious social working space, where you can meet, eat, drink, play AND work in style. It’s tipped to be the next big thing for the Oslo business community in 2021. In the heart of Oslo’s city centre, Telegrafen offers everything you need under one roof, aimed squarely at the corporate market – and there’s no membership fee!
Says Telegrafen’s Purchasing Manager, Mathias Bevolden: “In Norway, social gaming activities like shuffleboard and interactive darts are firmly part of our social scene and we see Telegrafen as the next evolution of the eat, drink, play experience, which until now has been pretty much solely consumer focused.»
“Telegrafen embraces a new way of working, catering for corporate teams, who want to prioritise wellbeing and re-connect post-Covid in a fun, yet premium environment. It will also breathe new life into one of Oslo’s most stunning and architecturally renowned heritage buildings.”
With an ultra-premium finish, this sprawling new 3200m2 hub will bring people together inside a beautiful historic building, constructed in 1924 at Kongens gate 21 and known as The Telegraph. It used to be Norway’s telephone exchange, the HQ for Telenor, until 2000, which explains why all of the new bars and event spaces are named after the telecommunications hub it housed, the architects who originally designed it and those who have since expanded the building.
Now, Oslo’s business community will be able to book one of seven meeting and event rooms; meet for a working lunch; hold after-work drinks in one of five unique bars; do some teambuilding by sliding some shuffleboard pucks or letting some darts fly in three games zones with more than 40 activities; or join colleagues for a yoga session and bring some Zen to the working day.
Says SHUFL European Marketing Manager Samantha Catford: “Telegrafen is a ground-breaking venue – the next evolution in the competitive socialising offer. We’ve already seen the popularity of co-working spaces in cities but this combination of leisure, social and business feels like the future in terms of ways of working post-Covid.”
Everything you need under one roof
Of course, it’s not just for the business community, Telegrafen offers a complete eat, drink, play, work experience in a distinctive, upmarket city space appealing to groups looking for a memorable night out:
At Restaurant Bestorp diners will have a choice of lunch and dinner menus, which use only Scandinavian ingredients and offer both 3-5 course options and a more casual dining offer. There’s also the gastro-restaurant in the Phone Booth (Telefonkiosken) Bar.
An intimate wine bar with a distinctly 60s vibe, the Telex Wine bar comes complete with sommeliers promises wines for every palate for a get-together with friends or a date night. There are also two bars in the Phone Booth (Telefonkiosken) bar and a bar in the 80s themed Fax (Faksen) Bar
Telegrafen customers will be able to get their SHUFL on with no less than ten of our finest championship grade shuffleboard tables, three SHUFL Bank Shots and seven Modern Darts installations. You’ll find two huge themed bars: 80s style The Fax (Faksen) Bar, complete with three darts units and four SHUFL tables, a DJ and dance floor; and the funky 70s themed Phone Booth (Telefonkiosken) bar serving up bucketloads of fun on six shuffleboard tables and four darts units, housed in a private raised terrace. Great for group celebrations and corporate party bookings, we think these will be THE in places to hang out with friends in Oslo.
