5 Reasons Why You Should Rent This Old Street Office Space

Looking for somewhere new to station your small start-up? Or a single desk for your freelance business? We've got space to spare at our Old Street offices. Here are five reasons to move in with us. Email hello@londonist.com if you're interested in having a look round.

1. It's exceptionally-well connected

It takes under five minutes to walk from Old Street station (Northern line, national rail) to the office. Shoreditch High Street station (Overground) and Liverpool Street station (Central, Hammersmith & City, Circle, Metropolitan, Overground, national rail — and soon-to-be Crossrail) are both an easy 15 minutes' walk away from the office too. Yup, this is one well-connected workspace.

2. You'll never have a boring lunch again

Pizza at Voodoo Rays. Try not to have it every single day

We don't want to brag, but this part of town OWNS lunchtime food. Fat juicy burritos and bowls of Vietnamese noodles from Whitecross Street Market. Cheesy slabs of pizza from Voodoo Rays in Boxpark, and cheap-as-you-like sandwiches from Brick Lane's legendary bagel shops. Spicy Persian kebabs and towering salad boxes, 30 seconds round the corner from the office. We're making ourselves hungry here. Check out our article on cheap, delicious lunches in the area.

3. Be part of London's creative hub

Nicknamed Silicon Roundabout, Old Street and its surrounds are a hub of creativity. On its street-art-painted streets, reside some of London's most exciting small businesses and start-ups. What better place to network and hob-nob with the great and the good of the tech, art, fashion and design sectors.

4. No shortage of places for meetings and after-work drinks

Draft House Old Street: one of the many places we like to head for a Friday night pint

Whether it's a quiet flat white in Attendant or a well-earned pint of Fourpure from Craft Beer Co, inspiration for places to grab a drink round here will never run dry. Lovers of coffee, craft beer, cocktails, mocktails and milkshakes will find something they love, within a few minutes' walk of the office. And if you're planning a proper Friday night blow-out: there are clubs.

5. Oh yeah, the office itself is pretty awesome

This bright and airy third floor former-warehouse office is a cool space to be located. Working alongside other small teams, you'll enjoy a space that includes:

  • Large windows, and air con
  • Wi-Fi with fibre broadband connection
  • 24 hour access
  • Kitchen facilities
  • Private balcony
  • Meeting room with wall mounted TV and Apple TV connectivity
  • Secure office, alarmed
