The Ins and Outs of Putney: March

Putney is reputed as ‘one of London’s most pleasant suburbs,’ and it really does have something for everyone. With our new serviced office space, Putney now has a growing number of start-ups and freelancers working in the area.

For March, we found the best places for you to enjoy just a short walk away from our serviced office spaces in Putney.

Where to eat…

From its cosy interiors to its mismatched furniture, Gazette Putney has perfectly captured the chic feel of a village café somewhere deep in the countryside of France – which is just as well, seeing as Gazette describe themselves as being ‘London’s most authentic French brasseries’. Their seasonal menu changes all the time, meaning it doesn’t matter how many times a year you pop in for something to eat – you’re always likely to find a new continental speciality to improve your day (and fill that lunch shaped hole in your life).

Where to go for a drink…

Some bars have quirky interiors, some have great live music and DJs, and some are known more for their speciality dining options – Lost & Co, right in the heart of Putney, splits the difference by having all of the above. It’s one of the best all-round bars in the area – suitable for a bite to eat (they’re particularly well known for their wood fired pizzas) and craft beers in the week, or selections from their proudly unique cocktail menu after work on a Friday.

Or, for something more traditional, the Prince of Wales prides itself on being an old-fashioned, no nonsense pub that welcomes anyone from groups of friends to work parties.

Everything else…

For an outdoor activity with a difference, why not learn all about the world of wildlife photography? On Friday 15th March, photographer Iain Green will be running an Introduction to Wildlife Photography course at the WWT London Wetland Centre. The all-day session will begin by guiding budding photographers through how to get the most out of their camera, before heading out to get some practical experience of snapshotting the surrounding flora and fauna. Find out more about the course on the WWT London Wetland Centre website.

If you’re looking for a small office for rent, Putney could be a great place to develop your business in the new year. Why not check out our offices and see which ones suit your company’s needs?

The Ins and Outs of Shoreditch – March

With the winter weather behind us, there’s also a new wealth of opportunities for places to eat, drink and be merry – all within walking distance of our serviced office space in Shoreditch.

Where to eat

Whether you’re looking for a great spot for an after-work meal, or just want to grab something during your lunch break, Nanashi is on hand for some of the best Sushi in the Shoreditch area – courtesy of their Japanese kitchen. The menu comprises all the sushi standards and old favourites, plus a few new modern twists, like their salmon or tuna sushi burger.

Plus, if you’re based in our Bath Place offices, you’re pretty much there already – Nanashi is situated on Rivington Street, almost exactly opposite the entrance to Bath Place.

For those of you who aren’t too keen on sushi, a more fail-safe option is The Jones Family Project. Perhaps unsurprisingly, this is a family run affair, and it takes an equally no-nonsense approach to its dining experience – top tier steaks in the stylish downstairs restaurant, or cocktails in the chic upstairs bar.

Where to drink

In the short time since it first opened on the other side of Old Street roundabout, Nightjar has established a reputation as one of London’s most stylish bars. This old school style speakeasy is famous for its elaborate cocktails, including reviving long forgotten recipes and adding their own twist to some of the staple choices. They also host regular live jazz, swing and cabaret nights, making it the perfect destination if you’re looking for a particularly classy night out.

Other things to do

When it comes to fun, team-building activities that will bring everyone right back to their childhood, there really aren’t many options safer than a few games of bowling. The Brick Lane premises of bowling chain All Star Lanes has everything a retro-Americana themed bowling alley needs – bowling lanes, a restaurant, cocktail bar, and even multiple karaoke booths.

Or, if you don’t fancy embarrassing yourself with a steady stream of gutter balls and out of tune power ballads, Shoreditch institution Zigfrid Von Underbelly is hosting London Tap Jam, an evening of live music and improvised tap dance, on the very last Sunday of the month.

As London’s startup and small business centre, Shoreditch has no shortage of places to eat, drink and hang out – check the Proper Office blog regularly for our monthly recommendations.
