Our office is located in Shoreditch – East London’s trendy, energetic neighbourhood with an eclectic history. These streets around our home on Charlotte Road have been fuelling this city’s creativity for hundreds of years. The city’s first successful theatre (conveniently called The Theatre) opened on nearby Curtain Road in 1576. Shakespeare classics like Henry V and Romeo and Juliet were first performed at The Curtain Theatre, just 200 yards south of The Theatre. Even Dickens frequented the area for inspiration: one of our most famous fictional characters Oliver Twist supposedly lived in South Shoreditch.
The bustling atmosphere of entertainment and revelry that defined 19th century Shoreditch carried well into the next century. It became a centre for artists, performers, characters and anyone seeking an alternative lifestyle who converged to booze in the infamous Bricklayer’s Arms, which still stands proudly at the corner of Charlotte and Rivington.
Shoreditch is now a hub of digital innovation. This pocket of London has earned the nickname the ‘Silicon Roundabout’ as it is one of the largest tech startup clusters in the world after San Francisco and New York City. This area has us spoilt for choice: walk a few minutes in any direction and you’ll find gourmet eateries and watering holes like Tramshed restaurant that not only features the magical combination of chicken and steak, but includes Damien Hirst’s famous formaldehyde cow and cockerel ‘Cock and Bull.’ It’s no wonder we love it here.
