When we decided that we had to move out of our cramped accommodation in the centre of Newcastle, we had a couple of requirements. We’d need superfast broadband with LOTS of bandwidth. And places to park. Somewhere to meet Clients over a nice coffee, or just a place to chill at lunchtime. And we really didn’t want to be out in the sticks, so it had to be somewhere easily accessible. Hopefully not too much of a tall order.
And then we found Jam Jar. Perfectly positioned in Gateshead, in spitting distance from the Interchange, with on-street parking, 100mbps broadband and a cool café – it seemed too good to be true. And then, as if it couldn’t get any better, we discovered that is was also the home of a great big greenscreen TV studio. Being a video production company, we really had landed on our feet.
So, two years down the line, we’re still here. We’ve got some great fellow tenants, from a really wide range of businesses, which leads to some very interesting conversations in the café – Indian Head Massage anyone? Our Clients love coming here, it’s cool and quirky. And there’s always a welcome from Indie, jam Jar’s official office Labrador!.
