The food is out of this world. Good beer selection. Amazing music. Nice staff
In short, a cracking place to work and play! Longhand; a fantastic place that will provide you the foundations to set up and grow your business. A creative environment with people in the same boat and a network willing to share their experiences. Duke is more than a venue, it is a space with character and an ethos that is about giving back as much as your willing to put in. As my business has grown I am lucky enough to have developed friendships as well as professional networks. Along the way I've sampled co-working, desks and now a studio I'm proud to call myself a Duke resident and relish what event will be on next and what opportunity might knock tomorrow. 4 happy years in Sept16
Duke is an awesome work space, when I started freelancing I worked from a desk at the end of my bed which was lonely and uninspiring. I went into the Duke incubation space through Leeds College of Art last January and that was the best thing that could have happened for me and my business. I received six months of invaluable mentoring for the owners of Duke, Laura and James, and I had a studio space I could call my own. The design of Duke is amazing, different to any other workspace I've seen and it is designed so well to lead to collaboration on many levels. Since leaving my studio I spent a short time on Co-working then got my own desk at Duke. Both co-working and desks are a great place to work, everyone is up for collaboration and the longer I am here the more of that I see. Duke has a really great community feel, everyone is friendly and there are loads of social activities every month as well as all the hard work!
I started renting a co-working space at Dukes after working from home for 8 months, and there's been no looking back. Of all the spaces I looked at in Leeds this by far had the best vibe - the space is comfortable, spacious, there's a great eclectic mix of people and good facilities. I definitely find myself being more productive here, am able to separate home and work better and get to enjoy great social events too. Being here is like having all the best aspects of working in an office, I always look forward to coming in.
Nice, airy cafe/bar. Note, only open late on a weekend
