Spotlight on Shepherd's Bush

Spotlight on Shepherd's Bush

When it comes to the ideal West London location, The Shepherds Building is head of the pack. Situated just moments from both Shepherd’s Bush tube and railway stations, you’ll find this revamped warehouse-style space ideally located amidst this bustling community.

With a bright and open meeting room and events space, The Shepherds Building looks the part with wooden floors and a comfy communal seating area with a pool table. There’s an open-plan cafe too and you’d never guess that this was a former Inland Revenue office. Built in 1960 it retains choice elements of mid century charm, but is still a thoroughly modern space to work in, with plush sofas in lounge areas for relaxed catch-ups and coffee as well as sleek, minimally styled studio spaces. 

Local lunch options are pretty impressive. Ochi is famously Rihanna’s favourite Caribbean takeaway spot in town, with jerk chicken, ackee and saltfish and jamican patties to go, while Esarn Kheaw’s Thai food has had a loyal following since the 1990s.

The sprawling Westfield isn’t just handy for all your shopping and entertainment needs (it’s got a Vue cinema and an All Star Bowling Lanes), it’s a brilliant place to get food. We recommend their outpost of Soho favourite Balans, classy fast food at Bleecker Burger, sourdough pizza from Franco Manca, veggie-friendly feeds from Dirty Vegan, Korean chicken at Seoul Bird and Masterchef-winning Mexican at Wahaca.

High end dining options are also easy to come by, with Kricket White City offering enviable Anglo-Indian cuisine – try the Keralan fried chicken and samphire pakoras. There’s world-renowned sushi from Endo at the Rotunda, which you can find in the spectacular old BBC Television centre building.

Pubs for an after work pint are plentiful. The Defectors Weld has long been the trendiest option in the area, though since the arrival of a branch of Brewdog it’s had some stiff competition. Craft beer is also on the taps at Sindercombe Social, while the Princess Victoria and Queen Adelaide offer a more traditional drinking environment, with the latter doing great gastropub food. Be sure not to miss the lovely Albertine, an independent wine bar which has been going since the 1970s. 

Hang about into the evenings and you’ll find that the area is a cultural hub, with Shepherd’s Bush Empire and Bush Hall two of London’s finest gig venues. Not to mention Bush Theatre, the best place to catch incredible plays before they transfer to the West End. 

For a bit of fresh air, Shepherd’s Bush Green is right on our doorstep and there are lots of places to work out in the area. Gymbox Westfield offers fun HIIT and conditioning classes as well as a spin studio, boxing ring, sprint track and Olympic lifting.

Why we love Pall Mall Deposit in Notting Hill

First things first, you’ll find this prestigious grand building in the heart of Notting Hill by West London’s Ladbroke Grove. Pall Mall’s name comes from the historical space’s former life as a furniture depository which was built in 1901. It still very much looks the part though, complete with its original sign and period facade, all of which make for a pretty impressive place to work from.
