A Little About This Space

A diagonal door leads to a world of rich history. In an area renowned for its foodie status, this space to rent pinned between Borough Market and Flat Iron Square is one half of the expansive street level of a stunning building once home to a chocolate factory and now a part of an ever-changing, vibrant foodie and creative scene. With a wooden floor stamped with a million footfalls, beautiful old exposed brickwork, striking cast-iron support beams and even a spiral staircase leading mysteriously toward the second floor, the space oozes authentic character and charm.


The streets nearby are busy, and a huge array of complexity and diversity are certainly present. Tourists and Londoners alike will be drawn to nearby Borough Market and Flat Iron Square - aligning yourself with that crowd could work well. That said, the opportunities for a store selling other practical goods and services could work well, considering the diversity of businesses nearby and the benefit of a permanent roof over your head.


Flat Iron Square is surely the biggest name here - but people coming from London Bridge will pass by you first. Opposite are two restaurants - 'O Ver Borough' Italian and 'Lantana' Australian, both adding to the food-centric atmosphere. A current of theatre also rings around the area - with the Menier Chocolate Factory theatre situated in the same building, the (now sadly defunct) Bunker Theatre, and nearby spaces also home to various live music events and theatre groups.
