The best places to entertain clients in east London

If you’re on the hunt for the best places to wine and dine your valuable clients in east London, look no further. Check out our round up of the top dining destinations in the area, all of which are guaranteed to impress.

A business lunch in Shoreditch

One Michelin-starred BRAT has been causing quite a stir in the East London foodie scene since it opened its doors in 2018. Offering an unlikely yet mouth-watering mash-up of Welsh and Basque cuisine, BRAT is the perfect destination when you’re hoping to seal the deal on your next new business win. Hackney-based businesses working in the likes of Workspace’s flexible office space on Clifton Street can also get in on the action by paying a visit to BRAT’s Climpson Arch location where they serve up high-quality meat and seafood that’s been roasted to perfection in their wood fired oven.

Entertaining clients in the City

City slickers based at Argyll’s premium workspace on Gresham Street are ideally situated to treat their clients to a slap-up business lunch at Cabotte. Run by two of London’s top sommeliers, Cabotte promises classy yet unfussy French cuisine in sophisticated art deco surroundings, along with a very extensive selection of wines, some of which will set you back a pretty penny. But, hey, that’s what expense accounts are for right?.

A client lunch in Spitalfields

While splashing the cash is often the quickest way to impress clients, not every business lunch needs to break the bank. For a more casual get together that’s a tad kinder on the company credit card, head to Merchant & Weaver in the iconic Spitalfields market. We’re big fans of the relaxed, cosy vibe and seasonal menu, which includes small plates that are ideal for sharing and hearty favourites like fish and chips, burgers and steak and chips. Perfect for businesses based at Fora’s Spitalfields workplace on Folgate Street.

Treating clients in St. Paul’s

Brought to you by culinary heavyweight Gordon Ramsay, Bread Street Kitchen at St. Paul’s is a fantastic choice for anyone working at Landmark’s premium flexible workspace on Aldersgate Street. There’s something to suit everyone on the all-day menu, which includes a selection of signature cocktails, expertly grilled steaks and an impressive beef wellington experience.

A working lunch in Hackney Wick

If you and your clients are hot on sustainability, then a trip to Silo should be on the agenda at your next big meeting. One of the most exciting restaurant concepts to hit the East London foodie scene in recent years, this pioneering eatery is leading the way in zero-waste cuisine. Every part of the ingredients sourced directly from producers and farmers are used to create a carefully curated selection of dishes that you’ll eat off plates made from recycled plastic bags while sat at a table made from reconstituted food packaging. That’s innovative even by East London standards.
