"A Little Gem!!"

    October 2018

    I've had a space at the Melting Pot for a few months now and I highly recommend it! Great environment - inspiring spaces - light and spacious - and most important - really lovely people! Digbeth is a wonderful place to work too - central and yet a little off the beaten track - I love wandering around in my lunchbreak - people watching - and looking for bargains in Cow - a great second hand clothing warehouse just around the corner! All the facilities at Melting Pot are first class - there's even a brand new shower in the changing rooms!!

    "Exciting, innovative work space in Digbeth"

      October 2018

      My company Shiny People moved into the Melting Pot 3 months ago, great work environment and group of people to be around! - a real variety of creatives including web designers, artists, carpenters etc. Everyone is very positive and motivating of each other. We’ve already been given work through being here and I’m sure there’s plenty more to come. Modern furniture against the industrial walls looks slick - large windows and nice lighting. All desks are handmade. Very affordable cost comparable with other spaces in the area, and working alongside this group is a great bonus. Permanent spaces as well as hot desking so something for everyone even if just visiting the area.

      "Amazing Space! Love It!"

        October 2018

        I've been here for roughly 1 month now and absolutely love the space! It's full of creatives with a friendly atmosphere! The inside of the building is incredible, it shares the same feel as aloft apartment would, definitely makes me think of a space like what Google offices would have! There is a meeting room that can be booked and the space even has shower facilities. By far the best space I've been to in Birmingham and i've been to 5 in the past year.... oh and it's at a great cost! Would strongly recommend the Melting Pot to anyone!

        "Would really recommend"

          October 2018

          Been here for a couple of months, Really Really cool space, amazing location, generous workspaces, the people that run the place are great too, and its a perfect environment for working in and meeting loads of new people, got loads of work through being here by talking to the people in the space. I'm really happy to bring my clients here too, they love it and the option of hiring out the meeting rooms and bigger workspaces for the day tied in with the membership is perfect for my flexible schedule. Its getting better every day too which is cool to have an input on as it grows.

          "Wicked building. Loads of collaborations happening! "

            October 2018

            Companies based at the melting pot are working together on some really interesting projects together as well as ticking by independently. Co - Workshop attached means pretty much anything can get done. The space is still evolving as well so seeing it grow is really exciting. Lee the in-house accountant is perfect for any advice or help essentiacially when it comes to new businesses or creative industries like Artists. Location is a stones throw away from the selfridges building but still in Digbeth. This makes it ideal for commuting, meetings or if you like to being amongst Birmingham’s creative hub.
