If you’ve spent any amount of time working from coffee shops in Shoreditch, you’ll know that the Ace Hotel is the default for most people. Problem is, it’s hard to work in a hotel lobby when guests start knocking back drinks in the middle of the afternoon, especially at a place as sceney as the Ace. Go to Forge & Co across the road, which is perfectly set up for working: there are tables for work and meetings, sofas for informal chats, fast wifi, and a full menu if you’re planning to spend the whole day there.
