Top 5 Meeting Spots for New Business in Dallas

Networking is the lifeblood of most good sales organizations. While there are new networking “groups” popping up each day, what remains key is the right spot to do your one-to-one meeting while surrounded by other potential opportunities. The kind of place where you’re bound to see people who you know and people you’d like to meet. I opened up my planner, looked at the trend, and what emerged? The top five meeting spots for new business in Dallas (Central Business District), from dawn to dusk.

#1 Flying Fish, Preston Center – Perhaps the ultimate business breakfast location. Plenty of bankers, brokers and others who are up before the Sun.

#2 Starbucks, West Village – A second home to many Start-ups and a regular stop for those heading downtown.

#3 Dragonfly at Hotel ZaZa, Uptown – From 5:30 to 8pm, sit at the corner of the bar and talk about your business in your best “out-loud” voice. You’ll find it attracts good attention every time.

#4 Drip Coffee, W. Lovers Lane – Once the HP kids clear out, it’s all business and often the perfect alternative to any Starbucks.

#5 Gloria’s, Uptown – The bar is just loud enough to be energetic, but not too loud for a good conversation. Plus, eventually the strong drinks will make your value props sound amazing.

Honorable Mention: Taco Diner, West Village; Breadwinners, Uptown; Starbucks, HP Village
