Soho is the nightlife heart of the West End. Long having cast off the shadow of its former reputation, it’s now a vibrant hub for bars and restaurants. It also has a wide range of serviced office spaces to rent – plus many other letting formats.
Businesses in the Soho district are often focussed on the nightlife dominating trade in the area. Pubs and restaurants are a mainstay of the local economy. However, above the ground floor, a hidden world exists. One of the most exciting industries in this corner of London is the cinema post-production industry. The Saturday night crowds below have no idea that the latest Hollywood blockbusters are frequently digitally manipulated in unremarkable offices above. Films such as Inception and Avatar are turned into special effects masterpieces by effects gurus, who only reach the public eye at the Oscars.
Office space in Soho is diverse, with old and new buildings lying side by side. Depending on your budget, it can worth looking for Soho serviced offices to rent. These are available for firms who don’t want the hassle of managing their own space, or who need the flexibility of a short-term let. By way of comparison, offices to let are also available in King’s Cross. These offer superior transport links, but are much less embedded in the ‘heart of London’ experience available in Soho.
Transport links in the Soho area are excellent. Most visitors arrive by tube, as on-street car parking is very limited and multi-storey parking is pricey. The area is well served by buses, and cycling is also reasonably popular. There is a very high density of taxis, too – enabling easy transport at all times of the day and night.
Soho is in the heart of the West End and boasts an unrivalled selection of restaurants. Food from every corner of the world is available, with both chain and independent restaurants available at every turn. Cafes and lunch eateries are relatively less abundant, but the plethora of upper-floor office space means a vibrant lunch trade and a resultant broad choice.
