I LOVE Bridgeway House, Home of MyHQ

3 Aug 2021

Fanfare and drumroll, please: Introducing MyHQ – the perfect location for YOUR workspace or indeed, your HQ.  You can work, host, meet and more within this stunning and inspirational co-working space.

Hive of Activity

Based within the iconic Bridgeway House, right in the heart of Cheadle Hulme, MyHQ boasts a stunning industrial-Manchester vibe. MyHQ houses a positive hive of activity, reflected in the honeycomb motifs throughout and frequent nods to the Manchester bee. MyHQ promotes creativity and productivity – in comfort. Here, the ambience is unashamedly industrial, yet softened with touches of utter gorgeousness throughout.

After one heck of a year or so, more and more people are working remotely, which makes co-working spaces the way forward. Imagine – no more Zoom shame, distractions or demotivation. Memberships for the MyHQ co-working space are refreshingly flexible. Select individual desks, private offices, and meeting rooms, which all come with all-day refreshments and hours to suit, as standard. Fronted by Dawn Porter and her sister Lindsay, the inviting MyHQ doors will officially open on Monday, 2 August.

Restoration and Reinvention

We can’t talk about MyHQ and Bridgeway House without at least a little appreciation of the building’s history. The history has informed and inspired a labour of love to create this amazing space. MyHq and the Heist are the culmination and continuation of a true family enterprise. Exceptional taste, vision and ambition have combined to result in a sympathetic yet spectacular restoration. That, and a total reinvention. Bridgeway House was long-neglected, unloved and abandoned. Yet MyHQ has rescued this iconic and distinctive building and pulled it back from the brink. The old bank, even its cellar and vault, will enjoy a whole new lease of life as it enters its second century.

Something of a local landmark, Bridgeway House was built in 1921 and originally home to Williams Deacon’s Bank. The architecture was inspired to some degree by New York’s famous Fuller Building, which many know as the Flat Iron. More honeycombs feature in tiled mosaics, which also commemorate the building’s centenary. The talented team from Daniel James have done an outstanding job.

The Small Print

We’ll say it anyway, but it goes without saying that you’ll benefit from lightning-fast wifi, shared peripherals, fridge-worthy aircon when required, and secure access (with cctv and key fob entry).

Services include:

  • MEETING ROOM HIRE: Discounts on hire rates for stylish and comfy meeting rooms
  • BREAKOUTS & TERRACES: use of three breakout spaces, two outside terraces, a stocked kitchen and an ACTUAL Tardis for private calls.
  • POSTAL SERVICE: Registered Office included for memberships of 3+ months. Mail forwarding is available for a small charge.
  • REFRESHMENTS: Bottomless coffee, tea, juices, water, snacks. Breakfast (cereals/toast), Weekly beigel brunch.

As well as flexible terms – you can choose from various length memberships, with no upfront or hidden costs and no complicated legal requirements. One simple monthly fee takes care of everything and includes everything.

Saturday Night’s for Dancing

However, there’s a whole other side to MyHQ at the weekend, because, when Saturday comes, MyHQ is transformed into The Heist. This is Cheadle Hulme’s coolest and most stylish venue for events, parties, and gatherings of almost any description. Hire the Heist and your event just got special. Furthermore, truly Instagram-able. On the Ground Floor, around 70 people can party. There’ll be a pop-up bar, all-important aircon, access to the outdoor terrace and top-tier sound, vision and lighting systems.

Alternatively, move on up to the roof, where around 50 people can party in the breath-taking and awe-inspiring roof space. Lovingly transformed into a dazzling example of glass and architecture, aptly almost vinery-like, with panoramic views, the roof is completed with a smart outdoor space. Again, a pop-up bar, plus bells-and-whistles sound and lighting systems will give YOUR do the edge. Dawn works with several top-flight caterers, who can create a simple spread – or produce food as an art form. It’s entirely up to you. Dawn and Lindsay will work with you, doing their best to design and host the perfect party, or baby shower, or networking event, or reception. Or… well, you get the idea.

Back to Life

We could wax lyrical about the absolute beauty of this building, brought back to life and now heralding a whole new century of industry. But the only way to truly appreciate Bridgeway House and MyHQ is to see for yourself, so book YOUR tour today.

Let’s work together. Hell, let’s PARTY together!
