London’s Greek Street is considered to be the gateway to Soho, given its short walk from Tottenham Court Road station and proximity to Charing Cross Road.

Some of the houses on Greek Street date back to the 1700s—some of the oldest properties in Soho. The name is thought to have come from the Greek Orthodox Church–London’s first–which was built in the area following an influx of Greeks in the 17th century.

Some of Greek Street’s oldest taverns and stores still live on today, like the Gay Hussar, now NobleRot Soho; the Pillars of Hercules pub, still serving pints as Simmons; and The Coach & Horses, an historic haunt for journalists and writers.

56 Greek Street was originally a residence. By the late 1800s, the building was home to coffee rooms and a restaurant, before becoming a tailors and later offices. We began restoring it to the beautiful venue it now is, in 2019.

Greek Street has a vibe like nowhere else that surprises and delights our guests. There is a strong musical influence, with famous Amy Winehouse hangout Jazz After Dark just across the street. Part of the movie ‘Rocketman’ was shot in our building, portrayed as the offices of Elton John’s manager, John Reid.

Today, our meeting and event venue captures that very essence with fine fabrics, stunning art and impeccable lighting which creates a unique ambiance. Flexible, contemporary and comfortable, our inspiring stack of spaces offer plenty of room to work, meet and get creative. We also accommodate script reads, filming, auditions and launches for the entertainment industry and retail.
