Old Street is a well-connected hub of the city in many ways, making it an ideal location for a press day, which needs to be within easy reach to attract maximum interest and coverage. With that said, here are some of the area’s more unique offerings that we think would be ideal.
Last Days of Shoreditch is London’s original street food market, serving as a hub for the capital’s best independent nightlife. Covered and fully heated, this East London arts and music space is available for exclusive themed hire, so you can kit the space out to suit your individual needs, with area hire also an option, allowing you to host group events for between 10 and 100 people. Shoreditch High Street and Old Street Northern are amongst the nearest transport links.
The Trampery is housed within what was once a long-abandoned building, giving a whole new lease of life to a previously unloved space. Now a luxurious venue bringing together the city’s best innovative and creative minds, there are several spaces at your disposal, including The Library, which has a capacity of 40 and comes complete with a 50-inch plasma screen, a quality sound system and vintage furniture for a more relaxed, low-key gathering.
Sizona is a converted warehouse that now offers 2 levels of contemporary loft-style event space. The décor is an effective blend of new and retro, with characterful features like exposed brickwork and patio slab paving stones both inside and out adding extra charm and appeal. The full-length patio doors let in lots of natural light during the day but can also be opened right up to let fresh air flood in and so you can combine both the interior and exterior space.
Found right in the middle of Old Street Roundabout, mere seconds from Old Street tube station, The Magic Roundabout is a vibrant and lively space that boasts 3 bars, a dance floor and award-winning street food. An open-air venue in the summer months, it is covered and heated in the winter to allow it to host a diverse range of events year-round, from product launches to club nights and everything in between. The generous capacity allows for as many as 550 guests to attend.
Bounce is the UK’s leading entertainment concept, combining the very best of corporate meeting spaces with social event space and a ping pong club, meaning it truly is a unique offering. Able to accommodate gatherings that range anywhere between 6 and 600 people, there are various different areas and configurations to choose from, including hire of the private room, which has an impressive range of features not limited to bespoke ping pong tables, a cocktail bar, top of the range presentation and sound systems and a photo pod.
