The Ins and Outs of Shoreditch: November
Christmas is fast approaching and this means that festive decorations are aplenty all over London. Near and around our serviced office space, Shoreditch is no different. You can expect to see all of the local businesses taking part in celebrating this wonderful time of the year. There’s plenty of things to see and do this month to get into the Christmas spirit.
Where to eat
Working in the neighbourhood of Shoreditch has its perks, including a variety of places to eat. As it approaches the festive season, there’s also plenty of offers available. Busaba Bangkok Thai offers a casual and contemporary setting that’s great value for money and therefore a godsend on your bank balance. They’re currently offering a Christmas Banquet or Feast that are great for big groups. Office Christmas party anyone?
If you fancy something a little more upmarket for a fraction of the price, Nobu has a delicious afternoon tea menu for just £30 per person. This festive treat includes your standard selection of sandwiches, hot beverages and a glass of prosecco.
Where to go for a drink
When it comes to our shared office space, Shoreditch is the perfect location for group drinks. If you want something a little different, Ballie Ballerson is the perfect venue to drink and bring out the inner child. It’s the first ball pit bar to ever come to London and is a fun atmosphere whether you’re on a first date or having after work drinks with colleagues.
Famous for its main ball pit that GLOWS, the venue also offers some very nostalgic cocktails that pay homage to the sweets you enjoyed way back when. They also do a boozy bottomless brunch with two hours of unlimited prosecco – but perhaps save that one for the weekend.
Another spot to visit is Cirque, another quirky bar that offers happy hour on cocktails for just two for £10. With its eccentric interiors, it’s a great spot if you’re new to the area.
What else is going on?
Ever been to a pop-up event? It’s a great way to discover new businesses and there’s another one coming to Shoreditch on the 9th November. Chicken n Beer has thrown pop-up parties all over London and this time, Flavas is playing host. It’s expected to sell out so if you love festival style food and drink and twerking badly in front of strangers, this is your scene.
Since gin is no longer the spirit enjoyed mainly by the older generations, London has become a popular attraction for various cocktail bars, emporiums and festivals all dedicated to Gin. The Gin Journey London is a tour through the neighbourhood of Shoreditch. You’re chauffeured from one bar to the next where you’ll enjoy many samples of this spirit in different forms. It’s a great one if you’re celebrating a birthday and need to control a crowd of friends.
If you’re looking for an office space, Shoreditch is the ideal spot that offers more than traditional offices do. We’ll be bringing you our picks of the best it has to offer every month. Make sure to keep checking the blog to get all of our recommendations.
