BL-NK; bigger, better and we are raring to go!

Exciting few weeks ahead for the Cube Space team!  We are raring and ready to go with the next chapter for BL-NK at it's new Shoreditch home.

Set to open the doors finally on 7 September the new building is a unique, 4,500 SqFt mixed purpose urban-space.  Set over three floors it provides versatile and flexible event spaces, a relaxed & friendly café, first floor bar with roof terrace, gallery space and a number of smaller meeting rooms.

The relaxed and friendly café delivers on atmosphere and great coffee.  We will again be working with our partners Climpson & Son’s to bring the best barista made brews. Along with new foodie partners, a collaboration of three friends that met and worked together at CRATE Brewery, they will be providing vibrant menus from locally sourced produce to the café, first floor bar as well as the client & in house events taking place.

Billed to be one of Hackney’s hidden gems, the first floor bar will be open daily till midnight.  Keeping it local we will be serving up several craft beers including partners CRATE Brewery and regular guest beers.  For finer weather days there is also an amazing roof terrace!  We know where our summer office will be!!

The first floor will also be home to a digital art gallery, showcasing work with close ties to the area that uses technology as its intrinsic material and to reach global audiences. 

To find out more about being a part of this great project through Sponsorship and Business Membership or to hire the space for your next event please get in touch with one of the team at info@bl-nk.org.

BL-NK moves to Curtain Road for new adventures.... come join us!

After an exciting & successful 15 months with BL-NK on East Road we have officially closed the doors on our East Road location and the demolition team are in.  Our amazing partners at Hackney Council Regeneration Delivery came up trumps and for Christmas delivered news of new & outstanding location for BL-NK for at least the next 2 years. 

The demolition has been done and the refit is due to start any day! The official BL-NK launch in Curtain Road is still to be confirmed but the end of March is the big goal...  

Watch this space for updates, photos & any big news on some exciting partnerships that are in the pipeline!

In the meantime we have a great opportunity to be a part of what is set to be one of the key openings of 2015!  BL-NK Business Memberships will enable companies to take advantage of this stunning venue, gain entry to a range of digital art shows, seminars, conferences and events as well as benefits on using the space for your daily meeting or event requirements.

Heres the deal:

2012 saw the launch of Hackney House - a stunning and unusual 10,000 Sq. ft. urban pop-up space in Hackney's Shoreditch district.  Created to act as a hub for new investment to Hackney and East London and to support local businesses with their plans for growth – the pop-up venue hosted creatively inspired events showcasing the innovative and pioneering talent of the area.
 
Following on from that success the London Borough of Hackney created an exceptional semi-permanent space - BL-NK – a stage for Hackney to continue celebrating and supporting what is rapidly becoming one of the most exciting creative, cultural, commercial and technological clusters in Europe, if not the world.
We now have a new venue to continue the work started at East Road with our mission remaining to take every opportunity to showcase Hackney’s business community, especially across our design, tech and creative sectors, with an aim of generating working links, new contracts, open up new markets and to present the area and our business sectors on the world stage as a business investment and partnership destination.
 
The BL-NK Business Membership is a cost effective way for businesses to have a
corporate presence at Shoreditch’s most innovative business and investment pop-up space.
 
The membership will enable you to take advantage of this stunning venue, gain entry to a range of digital art shows, seminars, conferences and events.
Last year BL-NK attracted some 40,000 visitors to product launches, seminars, networking events and social occasions.  With Hackney House events continuing to play an important part in attracting key players and business leaders to the venue:

The return of Hackney House and BL-NK to a new Shoreditch location is eagerly anticipated and will be one of the key openings of 2015.
