Two pints of heritage and packet of creativity please!

It’s a cool new pad for Clearsilver this week, and how excited are we?!  Whoever said you shouldn’t mix business with pleasure obviously never had the chance to work in a brewery (well, a former brewery that, importantly, still has a superb bar and restaurant serving fine Yorkshire fayre!). So it’s bye-bye Church Walk, our old friend, and Hello to The Tetley!

The Tetley building is such a great space and really inspiring to be surrounded by a heady combination of years of Yorkshire heritage and cutting edge creativity. And it really is creativity in abundance, whether it’s the thought-provoking art installations in the Galleries or the buzzing mix of creative and digital agencies in our co-tenant smorgasbord (must stop thinking about the restaurant).

Meeting with one of our favourite clients, Asda, will be a breeze too, as we’re going to be just a stone’s throw from Asda HQ. So it’s all good. Toughest decision will be whether to opt for the formal boardroom with the mile-long table, huge leather chairs and imposing guilt-framed paintings of Tetley men through the years looking on, or go more casual and bag a few stools at the bar.

We get a discount card too, you say?  Bar it is then – make mine a flat white (we never drink on the job – what do you take us for?!).
