This is a guest article from The Brew Eagle House about London co-working spaces with the best atmosphere. More and more people are looking to work in a more relaxed and personalised environment. Here are London’s best spots to eat, drink and be merry – while working.
The Best Places to Eat, Drink and Be Merry – While Working
The way we work is changing all the time. From virtual offices to coworking spaces, an increasing number of people are looking for new ways to get down to work in a more relaxed and personalised environment. We all need to relax and treat ourselves from time to time, so here are some of London’s best spots to eat, drink and be merry – all while working.
The Brew Eagle House – Shoreditch
An impressively refurbished Art Deco building located in the very heart of Shoreditch’s thriving Tech City is home to this coworking and virtual office space. Ideally furnished for business – with superfast 200Mbps wired and wifi internet, card access security and 24/7 access – it also offers a range of ways to put your feet up, from free tea and coffee to regular social and wellbeing events. The onsite café, The Coffice, is also no regular office space café. Its impressive range of food and beverages includes homemade cakes, freshly brewed local coffee and sharing platters of Frapas (French Tapas). It also stays open until 11pm – making it the perfect spot to relax after work with a cold beer or a glass of French wine.
Office Club – Peckham
Office Club’s major selling point is its flexibility. As well as allocating desks on a day-by-day basis for those who can’t commit to being there every day, it also offers desk space to both groups and individuals. This makes it a popular option for teams and small businesses who don’t want to commit to private office space. There are also opportunities to stretch out after a day’s work with discounts to Yogarise and The Yard CrossFit gym. Membership of Office Club also comes with access to the Rooftop Film Club, Rooftop Bar and CLF Art Café of Peckham’s Bussey Building – one of London’s most impressive venues.
Le Bureau – Battersea
If you’re worried that working in shared office space will mean fighting for desk space, Le Bureau’s desks may change your mind. This boutique coworking space in Battersea boasts impressively spacious oak desks complete with designer lamp, ergonomic desk chair and secure storage. Membership of Le Bureau also gives you access to range of handy business services from printing and scanning to laminating, binding and CD duplicating. There are also fully equipped meeting rooms and several Skype Pods for making important calls. Le Bureau also offers help you keep yourself going with fruit on Tuesday, then treat yourself with cake on Friday.
The Rain Cloud – Victoria
As the first CivTech hub in Europe, The Rain Cloud is a perfect home for those looking to change the nature of government and civil society through technology. As well as providing ample desk space, it offers an impressive range of ways to grab some food or a bit of rest – from breakout rooms and sofas to on site food outlets and free tea, coffee and biscuits. Its location close to Victoria station – one of the city’s central transport hubs – also makes it a useful base for those seeking to get a foot on the ladder in this rapidly emerging industry.
