The Hub Doesn’t Fit In A Box

and We’re Ok With That.

We show live sport, independent cinema, community events and comedy in our two screening rooms.

We have live music every month. We host pop-ups.

Our open kitchen serves wild and wonderful food all day and our coffee and cocktails are pretty epic.

We care about the world and our kids futures. We compost our food waste on site and give it back to communities we buy from.

There’s nothing else like us here.

From The Founders.

We set about establishing The Hub on Verulam in 2019. After a full year of premises hunting, we came across the old Loch Fyne building on Verulam Road and began the long journey to launching, via a major site refurbishment and the opening of The Deli on Verulam (next door) in November 2021.

An ambitious wellness expert and a creative hospitality baby, we love nothing more than to absorb experiences and use them to create something great. We live in St Albans with our baby boy, Kit, one of us (Alex) grew up here.

Above all else, it’s our mission to give you space to come together, to create memorable social experiences built around choice, that are better for you and better for the planet.

We hope that you enjoy what’s been created here.

Membership.

We are open to everyone, not just members. We welcome the general public into all of our areas too. However those with a membership do enjoy perks and priorities as listed in our members pack.

We create a social space for people that ask for more: more energy, more joy, more connections.

Our next release of memberships will be post-opening in Summer 2022, should you wish you to be added to the membership wait list, please let one our team know here.

Screening Rooms.

Both screening rooms will host a busy monthly schedule of events, screening and workshops aimed at quenching our communities thirst for knowledge, entertainment and connection.

From independent cinema and ‘baby club’ screenings, pottery workshops, networking events and Q&As.

Our June, July and August schedule will be available to view here soon.

The Box.

Our first floor screening room is named ‘The Box’.

This smaller screening room provides a slightly more intimate, luxury setting than The Terrace. Paired with it’s own private bar for pre-screening drinks, The Box has been fitted out by Pulse Creative Solutions to the highest specification with a 120inch screen, recline sofas and armchairs, footrests and side tables.

You’ll be able to catch independent and classic films, major sporting events and documentaries in here monthly. Additional food and drinks packages will also be available.

The Terrace.

Our ground floor screening room is named ‘The Terrace’ in a nod to co-founder Alex’s lifelong mission to create the ‘perfect’ environment to watch and enjoy sport.

Gone are the days of having to arrive at the pub 4 hours earlier than kick-off to ensure a good view of the TV, struggling to hear commentary or squinting to see the score in the corner of a tiny screen.

The Terrace has been kitted out by local AV specialists Pulse Creative Solutions. We’ve installed the highest quality 102inch screen, tiered comfortable seating with flip-down drinks trays and surround sound to ensure our guests can gather with their friends and family to enjoy a stadium like atmosphere, right on their doorstep.

The Open Kitchen.

Set aside from the hubbub of The Hub, our Open Kitchen serves wild and wonderful food all day in a beautiful and intimate setting. A casual daytime brunch and lunch menu is available from 10.00am daily, followed by a delicious and seasonal evening dinner menu.

We’re proud to include a selection of sustainably sourced fish, meat and plant-based dishes within all of our menus. Every dish is designed to nourish and inspire your body and mind, in the most delicious and healthy way we can find. Although every table enjoys views of the Kitchen, our ‘Chefs Bench’ is also available for a maximum 4 guests, allowing you a front row seat to the goings on throughout the evening.

Tables will be available to book from the end of May onwards.

The Yard.

The Yard is an all-season outdoor space, with it’s own private bar, firepits and atmospheric festoon lighting. The Yard serves food from our wild & wonderful Open Kitchen menu all day, you’ll even catch our Ice Cream Trike, packed with delicious Hackney Gelato to enjoy on a long Summers day.

We do not take reservations outside, tables are allocated on a first come first serve basis.
