Breakfast meetings are the new trend in London, and are a great way to to give new meaning to meeting agendas, or bring meeting ideas to life in a cool venue that let’s people relax a bit while discussing important business topics. Whether you want to have traditional breakfast in a funky location, or sample more interesting fare in a traditional space, we’ve got a number of great places to choose from. Each of the four corporate breakfast venues in our list below is charming and intimate, with enough room for your important meeting attendees, but not so much space that people might feel lost in a big empty room.
Copa de Cava is the very first bar in London dedicated to Cava, which is a Spanish sparkling wine that is crafted in the same way as French Champagne. Situated just minutes from Saint Paul’s Cathedral, seat of the Bishop of London, it’s tucked into a series of refurbished old brick vaults and finished in the true spirit of an authentic Catalan bodega. Guests will find a wide range of breakfast options available to them, along with a beverages to suit. While you may not necessarily want an early meeting to serve alcohol, you’ll be pleased to find that they have some of the finest fresh coffee, teas, and espresso to be found in the city, along with juices to order, depending on the arrangements you make in advance. It suits up to 150 guests, and is just a minute’s walk from the Blackfriars station.
A unique venue, wallacespace – also know as The Penthouse on Clerkenwell Green – is an oasis of stylish cool and calm. It features some of the most impressive intimate event space in London, with floor to ceiling windows down both sides of the penthouse, full length balconies, and more natural light than almost any other place in the city. On site staff are available for every event, and since the venue caters exclusively to businesses and corporate events, your breakfast is sure to be a success. In fact, there are few other venues in the city that work early enough to offer a breakfast and provide the same space and ability to impress as wallacespace. At just over 1,750 square feet it’s capable of comfortably hosting up to 150 guests, and is a short five minute walk from Farringdon station.
While most of the corporate breakfast spaces on our lists focus on the space and the breakfast, Mange is a venue that breaks that tradition and instead focuses almost entirely on the kitchen. In fact, that kitchen is a massive 1,700 square feet of the most modern private commercial kitchen facility you’ll find anywhere in London. While they regularly host cooking classes, photo shoots, and product launches for food and book events, they also serve up some amazing food. If you’re interested in a corporate breakfast event that’s a little out of the ordinary, then Mange is definitely a place you should be looking at. Tucked away in fashionable Clerkenwell, everything you need to have an amazing event is already on site. Great for those in the food and beverage industry who really want to make a statement to staff or clients.
The smallest venue on our list, Brand Exchange is a building listed at Grade II that’s been renovated recently. In fact, those renovations can be seen throughout – but particularly shine in terms of the audio visual and technical features that have been added to the newly upgraded facility. While it hosts no more than 60 guests, that’s more than enough for most corporate breakfast meetings. In terms of food, the event venue works exclusively with a selection of the finest caterers in London, and can accommodate a wide range of budgets and dietary requirements, allowing you to satisfy a wide range of tastes and personal needs. In fact, you can pick and choose your own menu items from the caterer of your choice and have your very own special dishes prepared.
