The building itself, a decommissioned rail station once a part of the Great Eastern railway. The space, 1200 sq. ft. of concrete floor, Victorian windows, vaulted ceilings and textured walls. Welcome to our unusual venue of the month, Studio Spaces E2. The little Shoreditch sister to Shadwell's Studio Spaces E1 has definitely got it all going on.
Perfectly primed for workshops, cool parties or photo shoots, the light, bright and edgy room nestled above the group's post-production office forms more than just a blank canvas backdrop for on-trend events.
Yes, it may be smaller than the E1 venue, but what it lacks in size by comparison, it sure makes up for in personality. Period furniture, charming peeled walls, stark white loft beams and an imposing spiral stairwell all add character. With a dressing room, fully equipped kitchen and ample seating options, your guests will be well looked after from start to finish at Studio Spaces E2.
And you know what they say: 'location, location, location.' Studio Spaces E2 couldn't have adhered any better to the mantra – the venue is found on the corner where Old Street meets Kingsland Road. Could it be any closer to the pulsating heart of London's nightlife scene, Shoreditch?
Past events at the venue include special product launches, street art exhibitions, cute boutique showcases and even one of a kind wedding receptions. And that's not even mentioning a training event for dogs... on iPads (uh-uh!).
Complete with a team of helpful venue managers, events will be effortless - even when they are out of the ordinary - at Studio Spaces E2.
