The following 5 venues are some of our favourite Central London hotspots, ideal for a business lunch during the hectic working day that is so often the norm in the capital, each one striking just the right balance between business and pleasure.
Styled like a New York City apartment, Dirty Bones fully embraces the urban-chic trend that is so popular throughout the city. The relaxed atmosphere and laid-back vibes are well suited to diffusing any potential nerves you may be feeling with regards to your meeting, with the best old school beats this side of Brooklyn sure to help break any ice. The relatively small capacity of just 75 will also ensure that things don’t get too busy around you, meaning you can both enjoy your food and talk business without too much distraction.
Cinnamon Bazaar is the largest branch in Vivek Singh’s popular range of Cinnamon restaurants and cocktail bars. The private dining room would be ideally suited to a business lunch, as it’s tucked away on the first floor above the main restaurant, has an intimate capacity of between 12 and 30, and even includes its own private bar. The beautiful décor compliments the incredible flavours and top rate service that have become Cinnamon’s signature style.
Like a trip to Paradise without venturing any further than Covent Garden, Tropicana Beach Club would be a great choice if you want to ramp up the fun factor and ensure that any thoughts of the office are well and truly banished. From a ‘lagoon pool’ style dancefloor and VIP beach cabanas, to the party booths and life size palm trees, this really is a venue unlike any other. Having only launched in 2017, it seems set to quickly become a firm favourite on the London events scene.
Coin Laundry provides plenty of options when it comes to hire or choosing which space to utilise, as there are 2 bars; the basement level space and the main restaurant, which combine to offer a total capacity of 250. The in-house team are more than happy to work alongside you to create bespoke events should you have any specific requests or needs in mind, whilst the space itself has plenty of character and charm thanks to the extensive exposed brickwork which gives it a distinct London flavour.
Found at the Fleet Street end of Chancery Lane, and within easy reach of the tube station that shares its name, this member of the Brasserie Blanc family is ideally located within the bustle of the city for those who are on-the-go throughout the working day and need to hotfoot it to and from the office. Booth style seating lends a degree of privacy, and there is even a private room available for hire should you want to take that one step further – not to mention how much it would likely impress the clients/colleagues you are meeting.
