An invitation to meet in a private venue over a proper London breakfast and talk about business is a great way to set agendas and discuss ideas, goals or team building strategies. While there are many venues you can choose from across the city, the specific needs of your team and their location will often dictate the location you choose. We’ve selected from our top five reasonably large capacity breakfast venues to help you find a breakfast meeting venue that suits your purposes.
The Fable is a very charming venue that has taken inspiration from the weird and wonderful world of fairy tales and the work of Aesop. This has resulted in an immersive, international feel to the décor, with quirky touches throughout that add character and a sense of fun to any occasion. The food on offer is seasonal but always delicious, as is the selection of cocktails, should you wish for an early morning tipple to bring a more relaxed vibe to the meeting. It sits within a very well connected area, just 7 minutes each from both St Paul’s and Chancery Lane tube stations.
Full hire of St. Bart’s Brewery offers a capacity of 250 standing or 120 seated, so there is certainly ample space for a big meeting here. Additionally, there is also a separate space known as The Balfour Bar, which is a private bar and dining area with a much more intimate capacity of 30, making it the ideal meeting space. This historic venue sits close to the Museum of London, just 5 minutes or so from a plethora of good transport links which include Barbican, Farringdon and St Paul’s tube stations, as well as City Thameslink and Farringdon train stations.
One of the most interesting and flexible venues in London, The Hospital Club can be hired for as few as 8 guests, all the way up to 300 attendees. There are a number of different locations in the club proper, including different bars, separate lounges, an outstanding restaurant, and a modern art gallery with a separate screening room. There are also state of the art television and music production facilities available if you’ll be filming or recording following your breakfast meeting. As you can start off with just eight people, there really is no limit to the sorts of corporate breakfast events you can plan. Guests will be thoroughly impressed with the venue and the service, while also enjoying the excellent food and drink available. Easily accessible by tube at just 5 minutes from Covent Garden, and 10 minutes from Holborn.
The Caribbean isn’t something one encounters every day in London, but The Rum Kitchen is pure West Indies in it’s finest form. In terms of corporate breakfast venues, there are none more funky than this, with DJ Fast from the Fun Lovin’ Criminals and Reggae Roast spinning a mix of Afro, Calypso, Funk and Latin every evening.There’s even a hidden cellar where more than 100 different varieties of rum are stored. It’s a gem of a place, and the Caribbean roots can be seen, felt and heard throughout. For breakfast there are a variety of different dishes that can be served up, and while you might not be having rum that early, they do offer a selection of Caribbean coffee that’s some of the best in town. Accommodating up to 220 guests and just 8 minutes form Westborne Park, it’s easy to reach and has plenty of space.
