Although the term ‘getting some work done’ has a very different meaning in Chelsea, Beaufort House is still an excellent place to settle in with your laptop. This being SW3, it’s more of a sloaney bar than an indie coffee shop, but it’s relatively quiet during the day, it’s very comfy, and the drinks are good. If you’re really serious about this freelance lark, they also offer a membership option for around £30 a month to use a dedicated members’ area that’s open until 3am.
