The Brew opened last year at 163, City Road. Shoreditch, London, opposite Moorfields Eye Hospital and close to Old Street roundabout, and offers a range of flexible, hi-tech event spaces in a trendy industrial setting (exposed pipes, distressed surfaces) that one either loves or not.
However the high ceilings and mostly white walls create an airy feel, with the main room accommodating a total of 140 theatre-style and divisible into two with a folding wall and then offering a conference room for 85 theatre-style and an adjoining foyer area. The areas have their own entrance in nearby Ebenezer Street and there is a small interview room that could be for speakers or the organiser, a small kitchenette and three toilets, including one with disabled access. They are supported with a sound system, fast 200mb wired and Wi-Fi internet and dimmable lights, and are available to hire any time, day or night.
