Ministry of Sound gets creative in SE1
The famous London nightclub recently opened a new co-working space in the heart of Elephant & Castle, to empower local creative businesses and encourage collaboration.
Called The Ministry, the new space – a former Victorian printworks – combines a co-working space and a private members’ club, but doesn’t stop there.
Among other features, the creative hub also contains:
- A table-service restaurant;
- A 70-foot bar;
- An event space and a conference hall for hire;
- A soundproofed immersive technology studio; and
- A 36-seater private cinema.
Ministry of Sound chairman Lohan Presencer spoke to Southwark Magazine about the new space.
“We’re more than a co-working space,” he said. “The Ministry is a hub for creatives by creatives – music companies, film and TV producers, marketing agencies, PR companies, creative technology start-ups, fashion designers and the arts.
“We’re about more than just desks, we’re curating a community of creatives. Why wouldn’t you want to work alongside people with the same passions as you, people who you can collaborate with?”
