Bootstrap Company believes in the power of creative and social microenterprises to be a critical asset in the regeneration of communities - our core activities are focused on three things:

· Supporting Small to Medium size Enterprises – As well as providing high quality, affordable managed workspace, we also support our tenants by providing tailored business support, providing networking opportunities and promoting their work

· Piloting innovative educational projects – By leveraging the creative enterprises that are part of the Bootstrap community we develop programs that focus on creative learning and career building

· Creating a space for cultural exchange - Striving to push borders on re-imagining space and creating unconventional experience are central to our enterprise.   We manage a gallery showcasing up and coming artists, a bunker space used for a variety of art and dance performances and the Dalston Roof Parks various events.

MERCI MARIE CAFE- Now Open all day

The Merci Marie Cafe is now open!

Merci Marie is a new cafe delivering many old favourites with a delicatessen's twist. The cafe is the brainchild of Marie Gonfond who hails from Provence, France. 

She truly undertands the importance of an exciting meal during a working day. Her distinct flavours are a welcome addition to Dalston's food circuit.

The cafe is located on our 1st floor. Entrance via our main Reception.

The cafe is open for lunch Monday to Friday 12am - 3pm. 

On Friday nights the cafe is transformed in to "Sweet Friday" a pop up dining club for people who are serious about supper!
