Day 1 - London for Business
Enjoy a room service breakfast from the comfort of your room or suite and then brisk early morning walk around Cadogan Square – just in front of Jumeirah Carlton Tower.
Pop into Harvey Nichols to buy that last minute business shirt or accessory.
Womenswear is on floors 1, 2 and 3 and is a treasure-trove of prêt-à-porter fashion. The menswear section on the lower ground floors has a wide range of European suits and up-to-the minute cufflinks and handmade shoes. Whatever you treat yourself to, you’re sure to make an impression at your next meeting.
Power lunch at the Rib Room at Jumeirah Carlton Tower where you will be very well looked after. Their house specialty is Buccleuch Aberdeen Angus beef so be sure to recommend that to your guest or order it yourself!
For a more private option, there is a boardroom just to the side of the main restaurant room – its handsome décor and styling provide the perfect atmosphere for negotiations.
Before your next appointment, drop into the new Saatchi Gallery on the Kings Road which opened in October 2008. The airy, modern space houses a number of works including a piece from Guerra de la Paz – a duo of Cuban-born American artists.
Their works use recycled materials and found items from Little Haiti in Miami, USA. Entry is free and it will take about 45 minutes to work your way through the various galleries.
Perched on Sloane Square are a number of chic boutiques that are ideal for last minute client gifts or a reward for your PA for a job well done. Tiffany & Co and Links of London among other independent brands, huddle side by side on the square.
For your client dinner, ask the Concierge to recommend a restaurant to fit your needs. London is home to cuisines from over 70 countries, but to make a lasting impression, try one of the 36 Michelin-starred restaurants.
Restaurant Gordon Ramsay is a 3-star, only a short taxi ride from your hotel – plan accordingly, it’s booked-up far in advance.
