Tech City is the name commonly given to the area of East London which includes many of the city’s most well-regarded tech companies. It’s developed quite a lot over the years, and in the last decade, web-related businesses have boomed and new media has taken hold. Big businesses like Facebook, Google and Microsoft have all invested in the district. If you’re visiting Tech City in January, you’ll have plenty to do – here’s our guide to some of the most important things happening at the start of the New Year…
Pamper yourself at the Beauty & Melody Spa
Giving yourself a little added TLC is great all year round, but January is a time when many of us feel a little run-down. All that festive indulgence in December can catch up on you – but thankfully the on-site spa at M by Montcalm Shoreditch is close at hand, offering plenty of great treatments and experiences sure to leave you feeling rejuvenated. This is a great activity to enjoy this month in Tech City, without having to venture outside of your hotel.
Join London’s Biggest Bar Crawl
7th – 8th January 2019
Hosted by Zoo Bar, this pub crawl promises to be the ‘biggest in London’, and provides guests with a tour of some of the area’s best venues. Whether visiting for business or pleasure, this is a great way to see more of the city as a local would see it – and see in the New Year in style during your stay at the Montcalm hotel. Who knows, you could even find a few new favourite destinations for future trips to the city!
Enjoy a nearby rooftop bar
There’s no reason to travel too far to find one of the city’s finest rooftop bars – it’s close at hand with the Montcalm Royal House Rooftop Bar offering some truly incredible drinks, meals and equally remarkable views. There’s an outdoor space for using during the warmer months, but in chilly January you’ll probably want to stay indoors, where the well-stocked bar and delightful surroundings will soon have you feeling right at home.
Dine at the Plate Restaurant
At the Montcalm, you could find yourself dining alongside some of the leading lights in London’s tech revolution. We value great food and great hospitality and at the Plate Restaurant, there’s plenty of both on offer.
There is a delightful menu of dishes ideal for enjoying all year round. In wintry January, we’ll be serving up lots of delicious meals to dedicated foodies in glorious surroundings. Created by noted chef Arnaud Stevens, the downstairs restaurant includes a bar and artisanal bakery where diners can enjoy cakes, pastries and homemade breads. There’s an a la carte breakfast menu available by day, and in the evening, the space is taken over by wine enthusiasts and the latest and greatest innovators in mixology, giving a great atmosphere whatever the weather.
