WORKSPACE FOR CREATIVE MISFITS
Built for graphic designers, copywriters, videographers, fashion designers, content producers, art directors…
NOTHING LIKE YOUR TYPICAL WORKSPACE
Salty Commune is a distinctive independent workspace. Just off Hackney Road, you can come to do your amazing creative work away from dickheads, robots and everything else that makes the world feel like an Orwellian fever dream.
We are a unique ecosystem made up of creative agencies and freelancers who share ideas, work and projects with one other.
Salty Commune is not just another soulless WeWork space where gentrified decor meets industrial capitalism; there is no machinist ‘work-work-work’ mentality to be found here. This is an idiosyncratic creative space designed by the people who use it.
Included in your membership…
- An amazing space based in a converted church like no other in the world
- Four meeting rooms seating up to 12 with AV facilities and whiteboards
- A rooftop bar for your ‘medication’ and a terrace with incredible views of a Neo-Gothic church
- A fully equipped kitchen so that you can cook proper meals – and no fish in the microwave.
- Fast, reliable internet
- Zero dickheads

When we say this building has a history like no other, we mean it.
Built in ’20 (from the previous century of course), this was one of the first buildings with a steel frame in the UK. Not impressed?
Okay then… after WWII, Reverend John Oates wanted to give young people living in underprivileged areas a place where they could meet up, enjoy music, good coffee and… motorbikes. He started the 59 Club, the first motorcycle club in the entire world and had one of the first espresso machines in the country. Truly legendary.
After the 59 Club was relocated, the building went on to become a hub for creatives. It was a venue that hosted Kate Moss’s first professional photo shoot with The Face photographer, Corinne Day, then it became a nightclub, going on to house “20:20”, one of the most award-winning creative agencies in the UK.
Today all of this exceptional history is celebrated in the building and current resident creatives remain in awe of its glorious past.
