The pandemic has shifted the landscape of work and some degree of remote working will probably stay, at least for office workers such as those in PA and office support jobs in London. However, without the restrictions of lockdown, who says you have to carry out remote working from home? If you’re fed up of “making do” at home or simply want a change of scenery, where will you and your laptop be welcome?
It’s got a real remote-working vibe, and you’ll be in the majority rocking up with your laptop—the Ace Hotel in Shoreditch had this remote working thing down pat before the rest of us got on the bandwagon thanks to Covid.
It’s pretty hip and artsy, as you’d expect from the setting, and it’s popular so forget about rocking up late and hoping for a space. The hotel’s Hoi Polloi restaurant has sockets at every table, so it’s great for a working lunch.
The wonderful clutch of Hoxton Hotels offers fantastic pop-in places to work in London. They have free Wi-Fi and clearly set up their lobbies with remote working in mind. If sofas aren’t your thing after a year of working from home, then they have desks available. The table service means that your every whim is catered for, ensuring you can just crack on with the task at hand.
If you’re looking for something a little more office-like, then check out The Hoxton’s Work From spaces—true coworking spaces right where you need them.
Popular for post-work drinks, but brilliant earlier in the day for a place to work, Market Place Bar has the benefit of being centrally located close to the Oxford Circus tube.
Pick a bench or make yourself at home on one of their gorgeous sofas. The coffee and Wi-Fi is great here, and you won’t be constantly interrupted.
The first thing that you notice about Fine and Grosso, who describe themselves as laptop-friendly, is that they welcome remote workers. If working from home is now boring you senseless, shaking it up and going to Fine and Grosso will help make work feel good again.
First and foremost, it’s a great café, so you’ll need to honour that and keep the drinks and food rolling. Worried this will add up? They’ve thought of that too! They offer a £15 day pass which can be redeemed against food and drink for just that purpose.
If your productivity is bolstered when you’re in inspirational surroundings, then The Wren is where you’re going to be in top form. Frankly, it’s stunning, but despite its impressive interior, it has a relaxed vibe making it conducive to good work. And given that it’s in the heart of London, it’s likely to be convenient if you need to pop into the office too.
Remote working in a bar or busy place isn’t for everyone, but for some it is exactly the excitement and vibe they need to crank up their efficiency. If that’s you, you won’t go wrong with any of the options above.
