Kentish Town isn’t limited to just retail, though: there are also a wide range of office spaces available throughout the area, meaning that any B2B business should be able to find their ideal working location.
Because of its very central location, Kentish Town is a perfect area from which to network. The transport links to the area are very good, and there are a lot of bars, pubs and cafes which are perfect for entertaining potential clients and holding team meetings.

Kentish Town is absolute heaven to any foodie, with a host of brilliant restaurants and cafes in the area, as well as several extremely popular pubs.
If you’re looking for an enjoyable post-work meal, we’d recommend visiting the Arancini Factory, which, given the tastiness of the food, is really low-cost venue serving up Arancini (deep-fried risotto balls) of various flavours. Honestly, try it! It’s also worth visiting the Bull & Last, a classic, very-pubby diner that services up a range of delicious dishes. Of course, sometimes nothing less than a burger will do: we’d recommend heading to Dirty Burger.
Kentish Town also spoils those looking for a post-work drink. There are a number of great pubs in the area including The Pineapple – which does a brilliant quiz – the Southampton Arms and its selection of brilliant real ales, Tapping the Admiral (which should win an award for its name alone) as well as Aces & Eights, which is known for good beer and some tasty pizza.
If you want a later night, meanwhile, head to Annie’s Bar: it’s one of the most stylish bars in the capital, and it’s got a brilliant cocktail menu, not to mention a great selection of wine and champagne.
