Hey, cafes in Singapore …
Can we use your space for company meetings?
I love that I can be anywhere in Singapore and a decent cup of coffee is no more than a short walk away. Most of you who run these great cafes are super nice — you don’t mind me sitting there and working for a while either.
I work at a local app development & design studio called buUuk. We in the design team often head out to a cafe nearby to have our meetings. It’s a nice change of scene and that in turn can sometimes help think in new ways. Also, a brainstorming/review session can always use a good dose of caffeine!
We usually have our meetings during work hours when the cafe’s aren’t packed. It’s not easy discussing in a noisy cafe (and equally, our discussion won’t disturb anyone else!)
So, I have a suggestion — how about formally opening up your space for small office meetings during your “not-so-busy” hours?
It shouldn’t take much:
- A somewhat isolated space/corner for 2–3 hours
- A table big enough for a small group to sit together with laptops and notebooks
- Power points + Wifi
- Whiteboard (a projector would be super!)
- Allow for reservations
I think it would only be fair if you asked us to promise a minimum spend. (Equivalent to a coffee+sandwich per person? If we’re there for a couple of hours, we’ll probably end up having more anyway.)
I’m pretty sure that there are others who could benefit from this too. What say?
I ran this idea by the folks at Dapper Coffee and they liked it! You can now call Fuad at +6590257345 to reserve space for your next meeting. Also, he does one of the best cold brews in town! ☺
The fun folks at The Garden Slug reached out and informed me that they’ve been in this business for a while:
