Welcome to The Holborn
We are always on a continual search for the best in design, apparel and craft, scouring the nation high and low for those hard working bartenders, tailors, food-stall holders, entrepreneurs and eccentrics who go the extra mile to earn their keep.
At The Holborn we celebrate what we call a ‘well-made life’, searching out those who make & create with a passion and a purpose.We believe firmly in quality not luxury.
The Holborn is conceived around a fictional townhouse in Holborn, London. A haven from the harsh winds of modern life; visit our Bar for fine cocktails, our Library for engaging ideas, our Workshop to meet the finest craftsman, our Wardrobe to try on the finest silks and our Pantry to gorge on fine food. So it is then that we invite you to come in, put your feet up and relax.
The Holborn was founded by two friends who met over several beers whilst studying at Royal Holloway College, University of London. The blog launched in 2012 and after many ramblings, and having meet a plethora of great makers, the team opened a pop-up store in an old Ironmongers shop in East London. After six months of running the bar/shop/events space we launched our Kickstarter and Issue One of The Holborn landed in January 2015.
We now publish a quality bi-annual magazine and seasonal newspapers, have a popular online journal supported by regular audio and video content and we will be publishing our first book in 2016. We run regular events and sponsor many more which can be found here.
