A Little About This Space

Lined with pubs and restaurants, coffee shops and nightclubs, co-working spaces and clothing stores, Shoreditch High Street is distinct for its open-all-hours, vibrant hubbub. This heavily trafficked thoroughfare, one of East London’s major arteries, connects the banks and offices of the City of London with the youthful enclaves of Shoreditch; both its crowds and its resident businesses reflect that range. This shop space for rent (formerly home to a minicab and courier company), spread across two separate rooms and a small back area, is enviably located right on the main drag, and would be a fitting home for footwear brands, throwback takeaway businesses, and other youthful-minded enterprises.


London might not quite be the city that never sleeps, but frenetic and lively Shoreditch High Street is as close to 24 hours as the capital gets. As a result, crowds vary throughout the day. Corporate suits from the City head to the Goose Island Brewpub and the Crown and Shuttle for after-work rounds; see-and-be-seen types flock to Shoreditch House at all hours; foodies hit hyped restaurants in the evening (including Lyle’s, Smoking Goat, BRAT, and Dishoom); and shoppers venture to nearby Boxpark Shoreditch, Spitalfields Market, and boutique-lined Rivington Street throughout the day. Owing to the mix of 9-to-5 workers, East London creatives, party people, and tourists, the area bustles from morning to the wee hours. Shoreditch High Street Overground Station is the transit hub around which all this activity flourishes, while numerous bus routes serve the area.

Right next door is nightclub and bar Momento Lounge/The Edge, and across the road is the popular pub the Crown and Shuttle, making this section of the street a destination for those going out on the town. Off-licences, offices, and takeaways make up the rest of this part of Shoreditch High Street, while the gleaming towers of the City are visible just down the road.

Home Truths

Because this shopfront is relatively snug—and bisected by a dividing wall—its layout may not be an ideal fit for more specialty retailers. Instead sneaker shops, pop-ups, and retro takeaway businesses would be most at home here.
