The Brew Leonard Street/Eagle House

The Brew has two Old Street coworking locations within a 5-minute walk of the station, Eagle House and Leonard Street. Both offer a mixture of hot-desking and private offices and both inhabit typical Shoreditch venues; one’s a former 1920’s dance hall and the other a converted warehouse. Started as an alternative to expensive office spaces, these creative venues offer all the essential services for reasonable prices.

Plus points of The Brew:

  • Bike ramps
  • On-site cafe and wine bar
  • Independent office leases available
