As professionals know, meeting your clients in person can be an important part of your business. Though there are many digital ways to connect with clients, not everything can or should be communicated through digital means. In-person meetings help build trust and show your clients that they’re a priority. Though office meetings sometimes suffice, it’s great to have some other spots where you can easily meet up with clients. Whether to grab coffee, lunch, or dinner, St. Louis has some great options. Here are 5 of the best spots to meet up with your clients:
This first spot is great for a casual brunch or coffee meeting. At Living Room, they’ve created a space that welcomes visitors with a hip yet comfortable atmosphere. Tucked away in Maplewood, a suburb of St. Louis, this place is cozy and also has plenty of outdoor seating. The service is casual and from the counter, so you won’t be interrupted once you settle in. Their menu is creative, with most offerings made in house (including their fresh home-roasted coffee). Visit Monday through Saturday from 7am-3pm, or Sundays from 8am-3pm.
Kaldi’s Coffee - Citygarden
Kaldi’s Coffee has many great locations throughout St. Louis that make for a convenient meeting spot. If you’re looking for beautiful scenery, check out their location in Citygarden. This place is a spacious and bright spot to have your next client meeting and drink in the gorgeous park greenery from the large windows. They also have plenty of outdoor seating if you want some fresh air. They serve delicious coffee and smoothies and have breakfast and lunch options as well. Overall, this lovely spot is a perfect choice for a casual meeting. If you want to stretch your legs after your meetup, a walk through the sculpture park is nice way to fit in more client time.
Rooster is a well-known brunch spot in St. Louis that specializes in crepes. If you’re looking for a step up from a coffee shop, Rooster is a great option. Their downtown location is convenient for those working in the city, and they also have a location on South Grand Blvd. They’re owned by local master chef, David Bailey, and have both classic and more adventurous plates to try. They’re open daily from 8am-3pm and make a great lunch meeting spot.
This popular sushi spot is a vibrant place to meet over lunch or dinner. This modern Japanese restaurant has a more upscale ambiance and three different locations in St. Louis to choose from — Ballpark Village, Central West End, and Westport Plaza. They serve classic sushi rolls as well as many signature creations. If you’re not sure if your client enjoys sushi, they also have many other tasty options to choose from, like their popular Lobster Spring Roll or their Teriyaki Chicken Salad.
For an exciting place to meet with your client, the 360 St. Louis rooftop bar may just be the place. If you’re looking to impress your client or have a celebratory meeting, the bird’s-eye view makes this a great choice. For business meetings, daytime hours tend to be less busy and easier for conversation. They also have bright indoor seating with large windows if you prefer to be inside. They serve up a variety of drinks and small plates, like their Salmon Chips and Pulled Pork sliders.
Meeting your clients face to face can be an important part of the job. When you choose to meet outside of the office, make sure you put some thought into the atmosphere and mood of the venue. Whether you already have your go-to places or you’re on the hunt for that perfect spot, give one of these places a try for your next client meeting.
