In Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter, new businesses are thriving. Find out how our modern shared workspace in the city centre could help yours do the same.
Home to history, modernity, trendy shops, brilliant pubs and art galleries galore, the Cathedral Quarter is the cultural heart of Northern Ireland’s capital.
A powerhouse of commerce in the Victorian era, the phoenix of industry is reborn in Belfast- only this time you’ll more likely find it in a shared workspace than at the coal face. And River House, home to Clockwise Belfast, is right at the centre of it all.
From 17th century docks to 21st century Grade A office space, the modern development of River House was completed in 2018 and offers a rather large 80,000 sq ft of work and retail space over 13 floors.
The six floors occupied by Clockwise Belfast offer flexible serviced office memberships for all sizes of business, whether starting or scaling up.
Combining excellent natural light and thoughtful design with high-speed data networks and technology for collaboration, the ultra-modern River House even offers a large terrace with views of the Titanic Quarter’s iconic Harland & Wolff cranes. And with breakout areas, meeting rooms, event spaces, shared workspaces and an on-site café, these flexible solutions are redefining the serviced office license.
But Clockwise Belfast has as much to offer in its surrounds – not least because River House is one of the most easily accessed offices in the city with options to arrive by train, bus, boat, plane or even on two wheels thanks to the Belfast Bike Share Scheme.
Our location in the Cathedral Quarter means that you are right in the heart of Belfast’s most exciting neighbourhood so whether drinking, dining or doing cultural things, you’ll never be short on options.
- Established Coffee- With properly made coffee and one of the finest cinnamon swirls in town, Established is the perfect place to get your caffeine on before a day of deep focus. They also do a rather brisk trade in well-sourced beans to take home so your coffee drinking needn’t be dictated by their opening hours.
- St George’s Market– Winner of the UK’s Best Large Indoor Market in 2019, sample street food on your break away from the desk. Their Friday market has a history dating back to the 1600s and on this day, you’ll find up to 200 traders plying their wares.
- The Muddler’s Club– Named after a centuries-old secret society, there is nothing ancient about these menus. Enjoy homegrown produce with modern flair and a sense of theatre, recommended by Michelin.
- Babel– A hotel bar it may be but this one not only welcomes external guests but boasts a rooftop bar with an incredible panorama of the city. Impress clients with views and properly made cocktails.
- The Duke of York– An iconic Cathedral Quarter pub, steeped in a mysterious history. Whatever the truth is, this beloved establishment is alive with murals, oodles of Northern Irish charm, a great selection of drinks and a request that you“come in soberly, drink moderately, depart quietly and call again”.
- The Salmon of Knowledge – Hardly an inside tip but we couldn’t leave out one of Belfast’s most famous artworks. Also known as the Big Fish and inspired by old Irish mythology, a little time spent with this ceramic sculpture is always bound to kickstart creative thinking.
