The last thing your client needs is likely more caffeine. Instead make a lasting impression with one of these tailored alternatives:

Mani/pedi: Transform a weekend ritual into an hour-long working powwow.

Poolside: Casual and always inviting, the cabana is a clutch spot for business travelers.

Courtside: The guys have been doing it forever—invite key clients to the big game.

Tea bar: It's quieter and less stressful than a crowded Starbucks outing.

Personal-training session: Show a top client some love by splurging on a private session.
