Situated in the West End, Soho features a variety of dining, nightlife, and shopping options that will take the long nights of trashy TV away. With Dean Street, Frith Street, Beak Street, and Old Compton Street making up the activity of days and nights, and the long-running Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club always pumping out a beat that zings along the midnight streets. For theatre lovers, Shaftesbury Avenue is where they need to go for shows of Thriller, Juliet and Harry Potter, while manic shoppers can bustle around Carnaby Street, Oxford Street and Regent Street to find something opulent and exuberant. Meanwhile, Liberty's department store is one of the essential stores to shop in the area.
Many business hotshots frequent the bars and clubs that fill the streets, while the glamorous shops and theatres attract all sorts to splash out and watch something that will kill a few hours in the day. Business-wise it’s also an area where many groovy startups can be found in old warehouses and the British film industry also has its foot in the door with many offices holding production, distribution and post-production companies.
The area also has ample connections to the rest of the city thanks to the likes of the London Underground and swathe of red buses that block up the centre of London. No matter what the reason may be for their stay, guests can watch shows at the theatre, go shopping and then head home super quickly to change and be back out again in no time to go to a bar or club.
The radiant area has a long history like all the other districts in London. Soho was developed from farmland left by Henry VIII in 1536 when it became a royal park. By the late 17th century, opulent buildings started to be developed for the upper class, which included Soho Square in the 1680s. The local landmark, St Anne's Church, was also established during the late 17th century. As the mid-19th century developed, the aristocracy moved away when the area was hit by an outbreak of cholera.
By the 20th century, Soho became mired in controversy throughout the decades, due to its role in the sex industry. While its modern reputation is one of progress and liberation, the 1960s saw it as an area that most conservatives would love to have taken down. It also played a prominent role in the LGBT community with the openings of gay bars and more which expanded on its reputation for the vibrant nightlife.
What is known as the independent British film industry began to centre itself around Soho, including the offices for the British headquarters of Twentieth Century Fox and the British Board of Film Classification.
Its entertainment hub vibe comes from theatres such as the Windmill Theatre on Great Windmill Street and the Raymond Revuebar, and music clubs such as the 2i's Coffee Bar and the Marquee Club.
Plus, the area has been popular for restaurants since the 19th century, with the long-standing Kettner's which is still visited by numerous celebrities to this day.
With startups and creative industries calling the streets home, business takes on a new vibrancy here. Corporate offices and stock markets are far gone from here. Now, it is the young professionals, digital marketers, filmmakers, coders and designers who are the leaders. They weave their way through the narrow streets, buy their coffees and teas, and make their way into their unique and colourful warehouse space in preparation for the day ahead. The hipster eateries and cafes are catered for these workers whose creative talents will inspire the technologies to come.
But the business life in Soho isn’t just aimed at the trendy office workers. Many corporates bring their clients and teams to Soho to treat them to a lively restaurant or a night out to listen to some jazz or to party hard into the early hours. They can talk business and shares over an expensive cocktail while the trumpets blare away.
Then there are our Soho corporate apartments. They are ideally situated close to tube stations and bus stops, and come fully furnished with all the utilities that a second home needs for short and long term stays. Our corporate guests can unwind after gruelling office hours, cook something healthy using the fully equipped kitchen or unwind with the TV and the Wi-Fi for content that they love. Even more, if they don’t want to take the tube in the early hours to get to work, they can simply relax on the sofa and work remotely. There’s nothing better than working from home.
Soho’s central location means it is within easy reach of many of London’s major attractions. It is also a reasonably small area, meaning visitors are advised to choose their location based on their interests and plans for their visit. For example, those wishing to take in a show or two in London’s West End will want to base themselves close to Shaftesbury Avenue, whilst those preferring to explore London shopping and historic landmarks may prefer the Oxford Street side of Soho. Fortunately, private apartments are available across the neighbourhood, so many visitors will find that their choice in accommodation will largely dictate whereabouts they stay in Soho.
