Beautiful books in The British Library

If you’re seeking a boost of motivation, you’ll find it in The British Library’s foyer, where you’ll be surrounded by some of the venue’s 150 million-strong book collection. Free Wi-Fi, sockets and comfortable waist-height tables make the library’s public spaces appealing to digital nomads, while its cafes create a vibrant atmosphere. The Reading Rooms are quieter, although you’ll need ID and proof of address to register for a pass.

A graceful garden cafe

Striking contemporary windows and warehouse-style Crittall frames make the most of Granger & Co’s proximity to Clerkenwell Green, a leafy haven in the midst of London’s architecture and design firms. Complimentary Wi-Fi and sockets make this a convenient spot from which to work in between meetings, or for networking over a light lunch in the city.



Park life

All three meeting rooms in The Carlton Tower Jumeirah in Knightsbridge have conservatory-style windows overlooking a leafy green space, the private Cadogan Gardens. Our Italian restaurant Al Mare, on the ground floor, shares the same view. Our Peak Fitness Club meanwhile, on our 9th floor, has a members’ lounge which is an ideal working space with even better views.

Lakeside dining

If you’re one of the many foreign investors doing business in the commodities, financial, logistics and insurance sectors in Jumeirah Lake Towers, you may wish to escape an office environment for an afternoon. Fortunately, laptops are welcome at Friends Avenue – JLT, which is nestled on the shore of a lake. A strong Wi-Fi connection means you can continue to work on your latest presentation.


A secret garden

If you’re in need of a temporary escape from the corporate world, visit Seva, a cafe set within a charming garden. Laptops are welcome but it’s a Wi-Fi-free zone, so you can focus on writing that report without notification distractions. Founder Shadi Enbashi says, “Seva is a holistic working space that offers a balanced ambience in a beautiful setting for people who are seeking inspiration from nature, with indoor and outdoor seating submerged in the aroma of natural scents and soothing soundscapes."


Picturesque waterways at Dar Al Masyaf

Feel any hint of work stress melt away as you close your laptop for the day and relax in our striking collection of private villas dotted along the tranquil waterways and lush gardens at Madinat Jumeirah. For a change of scene you can stroll to an array of restaurants and cafes all with Wi-Fi, including on the alfresco terraces which overlook abras drifting along our canal. With neighbouring Burj Al Arab emerging from the Arabian Sea, you won’t need a virtual background for your next video conference.

Soak up the city views

Featuring scenic city views, Jumeirah Emirates Towers is a strategic venue for business meetings, adjacent to the Museum of the Future and Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC). The hotel’s bar and lounge, Mi Amie, provides an ideal setting to enjoy stunning views of the skyline and celebrate successful projects or business deals.


Cafe culture

When you want a break from a corporate environment, seek out a table at Maan Coffee, where you’ll be surrounded by bookshelves, trees and chandeliers. In addition to reliable, complimentary Wi-Fi, there are plenty of sockets, and floor to ceiling windows overlooking the leafy terrace.


A room with a view

Set on the 39th floor of Jumeirah Nanjing, our international restaurant Panorama derives its name from its far-reaching views. Overlooking the Yangtze River, the restaurant treats you to a birds’ eye view of wetlands and the Nanjing Eye pedestrian bridge. Work with Wi-Fi during the day, meet a contact for drinks at sunset or book dinner with a client to see the bridge illuminated at night.
