Looking for something different to do in London this summer? Then say hello to Lynx Black Space, a new social venue opened in the Old Truman Brewery, Shoreditch by the grooming giant. The social escape of the season, the new venue is designed to provide respite to London’s best and brightest (that’s you) and offers a chance to get away from the hectic city streets.

The new space is open for three months and offers an eclectic calendar of events across the summer; ranging from music performances, stand-up comedy and talks from innovators in the world of business, music and sport, as well as movie nights by Backyard Cinema.

The launch night saw a host of the capitals press, muscians, actors and bloggers treated an evening of entertainment to open the venue. Attendees were treated to performances by Brit big-time players Tinie Tempah and Labrinth, whilst DJ Zara Martin provided an electrifying set.

There’s even more on hand, with collaborations with one of London’s hottest barbers, Jack the Clipper, as well as a style partnership with ASOS, who have curated a special Black edit for the occasion.

The guys at ASOS created me a look from the edit and I’m in love. It’s an easy-wear everyday casual look and I love the added stretch on the jeans.

“With the world becoming increasingly frantic, now felt like the right time for Lynx to provide an understated escape for our guys. Labrinth and Tinie Tempah are the embodiment of music and style, which is what makes them the perfect choice to launch Black Space” - David Titman, Marketing Manager at Lynx

The launch of this new space comes as Lynx launches its latest product and new scent; Lynx Black. A subtle and refined fragrance, Lynx Black is about ‘bringing the quiet’, it’s about opting for less in a world that rotates on collecting more.

It’s a fantastic scent that’s subtle and makes its presence felt with notes of watermelon, bergamot and frozen pear – a distinguished and refined aroma for any modern man.

Black Space is now open and located at 11-12 Dray Walk, Shoreditch, E1 6QL
