If you're a small business owner, you have to go that extra mile in order to ensure that your clients are impressed not only with your serviced office workspace, but also with your ability to recommend a great location for a client luncheon. The area surrounding our Gracechurch Street serviced offices is filled with ideal luncheon locations, giving small business owners a rich variety of places to foster better working relationships with clients. Here are just a few of the restaurants and eateries around Gracechurch Street to take your clients to toast to your inevitable success as future business associates.

Client Luncheon? Five Delicious Options Near Our Gracechurch Street Serviced Offices

The Folly: Gracechurch's "Botanically Inspired Haven" at 41 Gracechurch Street

The Folly is great for many different occasions. This restaurant gives diners access to a garden lounge, deli, private dining room, and a selection of private "vaults" where they can hold more private meetings with clients. The Folly also has many different menu options depending on the time of day and occasion of your visit including full brunch, lunch, dinner and drinks menus, as well as set menus for larger parties. This gives you the ability to satisfy the tastes of any of your clients. Toasting to a new business venture is made easier thanks to a vast wine and cocktail menu, and there's often live music on as well, which could come in handy should a business decision turn into a small celebration.

Gaucho City: Luxury and Comfort Is Just a Stone's Throw from Our Gracechurch Office at 1 Bell Inn Yard

Gaucho is an Argentinean steakhouse housed within the historic gold vaults of the Bank of England at the Club Quarters hotel in Gracechurch. Because the restaurant is located in a hotel where clients might like to stay when coming in from out of town, Gaucho makes for a convenient and delicious option for meetings. Your clients can be closer to their base of operations, while still being close to your serviced office as well as all of the amenities provided by the hotel. Gaucho provides private dining and luncheon rooms, conference rooms (provided through the hotel), group bookings and set menus for larger parties, and an experienced events management team to suit all of the needs of any business luncheon.

The Crosse Keys: For Your Dressed Down Luncheon Needs at 77-78 Gracechurch Street

Since establishing his first pub, Tim Wetherspoon, owner of the Crosse Keys, has opened more than 800 locations. This expansion is certainly a sign of the popularity of the food and drink offered at these pubs and eateries. Priding themselves on the use of locally sourced ingredients, the Crosse Keys also provides one of the largest selections of ales, lagers, and international beers in the city, They also use 100% English beef, as well as a variety of healthy, gluten-free, and vegetarian ingredients. All of this makes the Crosse Keys a great place to take clients to enjoy a more comfortable, quaint, but still fine dining experience.

Showing your clients how committed you are to their business means satisfying all of their needs. This means that you need to find venues outside of your office where clients can feel comfortable, and where they can enjoy a fine dining experience that is conducive to both business and leisure. These three locations in and around Gracechurch Street give you the versatility you need to move forward with your business partners, to celebrate your successes, and to discuss your possible challenges in a setting that is designed to serve professionals and host business luncheons. We're proud to have offices in the Gracechurch area, in part, due to locations and amenities such as these.

When it comes to sharing virtually anything in life, we must ensure that we pay special attention to the people around us, and think conscientiously about how our activities affect them. Whether it's sharing a home with a flatmate or sharing a workspace with a team, the fact remains: sharing space successfully requires the utmost awareness and consideration on everyone's part. If you're delving into the shared space atmosphere and working from a serviced office in Mayfair, consider these five helpful tips to improve your business etiquette.

Working From Our Mayfair Serviced Offices? Five Helpful Tips to Improve Your Business Etiquette

Be Conscious of the Volume of Your Voice

One of the most important - and potentially disturbing - aspects to keep in mind when sharing a serviced office with other business professionals is noise levels. Though it may come naturally to speak louder when you're having a phone conversation, always remain cognizant of how your noise levels affect others around you.

Keep Your Phone on Silent

Similarly, another noise disturbance can come in the form of constantly ringing, blinking, or buzzing cell phones. Though you may get by in a movie theatre or restaurant with your phone on vibrate, you should strongly consider keeping your phone on silent when there are others working around you.

Alert the Receptionist When You're in the Office

Whether there's a system in place or not, you may wish to alert the receptionist politely when you're in the office, particularly if you've opted for the office's phone answering or patching services. This way, inbound calls can be patched through to your workstation, and you can avoid creating any further noise disturbances from office pages.

Leave Your Personal Life at the Door

When you're sharing an office space with others, you should always keep in mind that the space is not solely yours to decorate. Though it's acceptable to have a small amount of personal memorabilia in the office, you should avoid bringing in too many personal items that may feel foreign to those you're sharing your office space with.

Arrive on Time for Scheduled Meetings

When you have a team meeting or client conference scheduled, and you've booked one of the conference rooms at your serviced office, be sure to do your best to arrive on time for the scheduled appointment. If the meeting is cancelled, ensure that you alert your office mates at your earliest convenience. This will help to avoid inconveniencing other people who may have booked the meeting room after you, and will give those in need of a meeting space the opportunity to fill in the time slot you no longer need.

At the end of the day, sharing isn't so bad after all, and can actually have plenty of beneficial aspects, too. Though you may have to take extra care to ensure your business etiquette is up to par, you'll also receive plenty of business, financial, and social benefits in return.

Entertaining clients from your serviced office could seem like a challenge, as you might not know what to expect in terms of how the office will be able to cater to the needs of your clients and your employees. However, keeping clients entertained and comfortable in a serviced office might actually be easier than doing so in another workplace environment, as your serviced office will likely be furnished with comfort and maximizing space in mind. Here are six tips on how to make the most of your serviced office when entertaining clients.

Entertaining Clients From Your London Serviced Offices: Six Tips to Ensure You Close the Deal

A Comfortable Yet Professional Meeting Room Is a Priority

Of course you will want amenities and less formal rooms that are more conducive to entertaining clients, but keeping your clients entertained shouldn't exclude professional touches. Be sure to move into a serviced office that features a comfortable meeting room that offers access to refreshments, is outfitted with comfortable furnishings, and is designed with both aesthetics and efficiency in mind.

The Relaxing Informal Meeting Room

Progressive or modern offices tend to be outfitted with relaxation or "chill out" rooms that are designed for the comfort and relaxation of both employees and clients alike. These rooms are ideal for more informal meetings, and will show your clients that your business is serious about work but also serious about keeping your clients and employees happy, which makes for a more productive workplace.

Coffee or Tea? Drink Amenities to Quench Your Client's Thirst

Coffee and other hot beverages are increasing in popularity, and as such it is a good idea to find a serviced office with a higher end coffee or espresso machine to satisfy your client's thirst during those long morning meetings, and to keep your employees going during the day. Having to leave the office or send out for drinks can interrupt a productive meeting or take away valuable face time with a client, so having beverage amenities on hand can go a long way.

Use the Neighbourhood to Your Advantage

Our serviced offices in London have the pleasure and benefit of being surrounded by some of the best food and drink in the city, so taking clients for a unique lunch or cocktail after the meeting is simple. Get to know the area surrounding your serviced office, find out the best food and drink locations, concert halls, meeting places, and outdoor spaces so that you have a number of options when it comes to meeting the entertainment expectations of your clients.

A Catered Office Is a Happy Office

When you're entertaining clients, sometimes you just can't afford to sacrifice valuable work time to leaving the office for lunch, and this is where having access to a strong catering service in your serviced office is a must. Having access to a quality catering service takes the worry and thinking out of feeding and refreshing your clients during long meetings or luncheons at the office.

Internet Access in Your Serviced Office Goes Without Saying, but What Could a TV Provide?

Many modern offices are equipped with televisions that can provide a few crucial moments of relaxation for employees or clients. If you need to stay informed about stock information, a television could also keep you and your clients apprised of what the business world is saying and doing that day. A television can keep you connected while you use your computers, smartphones, and other devices for business purposes. You can let the TV keep you informed on how your stock is doing, for instance, or get analysis about the latest merger.

We believe it’s important to have the necessary amenities available in a serviced office, so there's no need to leave the office to get business done. The farther you stray from your serviced office, the less purpose your office serves, so make it comfortable, efficient, and well stocked with entertaining and refreshing amenities, and your clients won't ever want to leave.
