Local Insight & Information
It isn’t difficult to see why this distinct area of the city has in recent years become more and more popular with the young and inspired of the business world. Synonymous with tech companies and the home of Silicone Roundabout as well as having the Google campus hosting exciting tech development workshops in the area, there is nowhere in London that new start-ups and agencies alike would be better placed. However, tech companies aren’t the only business looking for an office to rent in Shoreditch. Being rich in culture and creativity, the area is highly sought after by many business types with the aging industrial buildings having today been transformed in to funky lofts, open plan offices and vibrant nightclubs.
An office in Shoreditch will certainly be like no other. Everything which you would consider the norm, from eating out, to shopping, to art is completely reinvented in Shoreditch. Grabbing a bite after work in this wonderful area of the city is more likely to entail al fresco dining and by that we mean street food! Pump Street Food Market on Shoreditch High Street is one of the best places to dine in the conventional way in this area. With an abundance of outdoor seating and delights such as the Japanese hot dog stall to sample, along with many more unique and wonderful flavours, this is a very popular part of the region. However, if you prefer a warmer location although just as unique there is the simply delightful Les Trois Garçons Restaurant. Decorated to showcase the English heritage in all its extravagance, the walls are lined with vintage handbags, stuffed birds and woodland animals along with an array of chic jewellery hanging from mantelpieces.
