4 reasons to choose a coworking space in Shoreditch
It’s no secret that east London is a melting pot of creative and technological talent. From indie pop-up shops and food markets to vibrant street art and historical sites, this bustling area attracts professionals and creatives alike with the appeal of mixing business and pleasure in one place
As a result, many modern companies are keen to establish a foothold in a popular east central London district. However, as the cost-of-living crisis rolls on, it’s no surprise that business owners are put off by expensive London rates for traditional offices. Instead, they’re turning to flexible coworking spaces and shared facilities to gain a sought-after London location for a more manageable monthly fee.
When you consider the work-life perks and cost benefits of making this shift, it’s a no-brainer. But where to call home?
We think Shoreditch is the perfect place to start your coworking journey, and here’s why…
When getting to work feels like a chore, it can be challenging to stay motivated for the day ahead — especially now that more people have the option to work from home.
Shoreditch’s central location means Liverpool Street, Old Street, Moorgate and Shoreditch High Street are all within walking distance. The area is connected by plenty of underground and overground rail services and is easy to commute to — even from outside London.
If you’re a Londoner, frequent buses can get you where you need to be. Cycle Superhighway 1 runs from Shoreditch to Tottenham, providing a dedicated route for those travelling on two wheels (a big win for the environmentally conscious). Plus, with onsite showers and bike storage at every one of The Brew’s locations, you can freshen up before you arrive at your desk!
East London is now considered a hub for innovation. A rival to California’s Silicon Valley, the growth of Shoreditch’s ‘Tech City’ has been supported by local and national governments.
Several young and exciting companies have set up their HQs in the area, creating a large and diverse ecosystem covering sectors such as creative, digital, tech, financial services and everything in between. So, when you base your business here, you’re in pretty great company.
Big players like Amazon, Monzo, Google, Microsoft and Twitter (just to name a few) also have roots in this area of London. That means you could be rubbing shoulders with some of the world’s leading companies in the queue for your morning coffee — just imagine the opportunities Shoreditch provides for networking…
Speaking of networking, you’ll always be just a stone’s throw away from unique bars and restaurants should you wish to connect with colleagues or clients outside the office.
If you’re planning a lunch with the team, BOXPARK is a staple of the east London scene with something for everyone, serving up vegan, gourmet, artisan and global street food from shipping containers.
Looking for an impressive spot for drinks with clients? Tayēr + Elementary is a chic, Scandic-style bar that offers delicious cocktails and a sophisticated atmosphere in two halves (one being Tayēr, the other Elementary).
For a more sophisticated occasion, Boundary Rooftop is a hotspot overlooking the streets of Shoreditch, where alfresco dining and cosy cocktails go hand-in-hand.
And, of course, Shoreditch is also home to the world-renowned Brick Lane. From traditional bagel shops to well-priced curry houses and street food stalls, this cobbled street is lined with dining destinations from all over the world and is sure to perk up any lunch break.
When the working day is over, Shoreditch-based workers can unwind and socialise with a like-minded community at the many events held in the area — including some hosted by The Brew!
From guest speakers to social gatherings for members, our coworking spaces play host to some fantastic events that create an opportunity for you to build your professional network.
Sharing an office can help cut costs and provide a buzzing atmosphere for workers to get their heads down and share ideas — especially in Shoreditch, where there’s a welcoming coworking community.
