08th March 2017

Perhaps you’re in the throes of acquiring a new business client. You’re looking forward to the shaking of hands, the signing of contracts and the celebrations that come afterwards. But before all this you have to seal the deal and choosing the right setting for negotiations can be difficult. Here at IMC we have selected some of our favourite spots in South West London that are perfect for you and your client(s) to toast your impending successes.


The Humble Grape, Battersea, SW11 1ED

This elegant wine bar in Battersea has an industrial-inspired look that oozes rugged charm with cork-lined walls and wooden tables. Quirky, cool interiors aside this bar has an impressive organic wine selection. So, if your client is staunch vino connoisseur you can be confident in your choice of venue with The Humble Grape.


Venn Street Records, Clapham, SW4 0BD

Aimed at a slightly older crowd than the regulars on Clapham High Street, making it an excellent option for drinks with your professional peers.
This individual bar is designed to look like a vintage record shop, so if your client is a vinyl aficionado then this could be the place for them. Bottled beers, pizzas, cocktails and a modest wine list make Venn Street Records a groovy alternative to stiff collared, stuffy bars.


Powder Keg Diplomacy, Clapham Junction, SW11 1TQ

This wonderfully eccentric restaurant and cocktail bar alternative in Clapham Junction. Powder Keg Diplomacy offers a drinks list that will draw you into a bygone age influenced by Victorian imagination, ingenuity and innovation. The Observatory Dining Room boasts Victorian finishing’s and floating gramophones that have been reclaimed and repurposed into light fittings. The Powder Keg would make any client smile and the generous seasonal menu has something to tempt all palates.


The Depot, Mortlake, Chiswick, SW14 8SN

The Depot brasserie looks out onto the Thames giving this handsome, high-ceilinged Edwardian stableyard conversion charming in buckets.  Robust, homely cooking by chef Gary Knowles makes this place an ideal location to wine and dine a potential client.
Fresh, well sourced, homemade from scratch food that’ll leave you happily full.


Bluebird, Chelsea, SW3 5UU

The Bluebird restaurant is a ‘local neighbourhood restaurant on a grand scale’.
Certain to impress your client, this vibrant restaurant is located on Chelsea’s premier King’s Road making it easily accessible.

"Our mortgage adviser Andrew Francis is brilliant. When we first met him we were first time buyers with very limited knowledge about the process of buying a first home in the UK. However, Andrew guided us through the process with his vast knowledge and professionalism. We had to recently re- mortgage our flat, Andrew got in touch with us well in advance he presented us with the best options for us and made the whole procedure painless. Of course, we were a lot more relaxed this time around, as we already knew that we are in good hands. Thank you for your help, Andrew!"
