An inspiring, stimulating meeting room is the very first step towards creative and productive meetings. Unconventional design, surprising features, breathtaking views - these can all combine to make you think in different, innovative ways.
Here are five outstanding and inspiring meeting rooms in London, and they're all available to for you to hire through Hire Space.
This venue was launched at the end of 2016 and it's pretty darn beautiful. The sixth level is dedicated to meeting spaces for up to 40 people. They're modern and filled with light courtesy of the glass walls and open layout.
But, the real showstopping part of this venue? The view. What better to stir your creative juices than views over the Thames and London's most iconic landmarks? There's also a terrace that is just perfect for celebrating a productive day out of the office.
MeWe360 aren't just a company that runs one of London's most expert meeting rooms. They're a movement:
'We set out to empower creative entrepreneurs to fully realise their ambitions and help turn ideas or existing ventures into sustainable thriving businesses.'
They understand the key role a meeting room can play in the development of a business. Mundane meeting rooms will only encourage mundane ideas. And MeWe360 is anything but mundane.
It's full of sofas, a kitchen, and fresh, natural light. It overlooks 'Golden Square', which is every bit as brilliant as it sounds. And it sparks with the entrepreneurial atmosphere that every business needs.
When you step into what's known as 'The Apartment', you can imagine Don Draper, whisky in hand, deep in thought, sinking into one of the polished mahogany meeting chairs. It's exactly where Don would have worked had he been in 21st Century London.
That's largely because this is a meeting room with a bar. A fully stocked, beautiful bar.
Smooth, elegant, polished wood combines with bar stools, presentation facilities and impressive boardroom tables.
It's a match made in Holborn.
There's something impressive about bright white, expansive spaces. Maybe it's the hint of possibility or the beauty of simplicity, we can't be sure. What we do know is that IceTank is great for meetings, with few distractions and plenty of room for creativity. The super-central Covent Garden location doesn't hurt either...
We've been working with Lumiere London since the very beginning of Hire Space, so it has a little place in our hearts. In fact we like it so much, we wrote a blog about it.
But anyway, back to the meeting space...
It's a warehouse of dreams basically, with two loft spaces and a library. The White Loft is clean and bright whilst the Gallery and Tropical Library are cosy and colourful, so you're sure to find a space that inspires you. We'd quite like to just move in, to be honest.
