The Soho Factory needed only a few years to become one of the most characteristic places not only of the Praga district, but the entire capital city. This creative, post-industrial zone is a perfect of example of a successful merger of a residential area that helps its inhabitants to quiet down with a charming atmosphere of a historic Kamionek.
Following its re-development, the complex of former factory buildings has turned into an exceptional place. Now it is not only a business and a culture hub, but it provides the possibility to manage commercial areas in a non-standard manner. Restaurants, cafes, architects’ ateliers, fashion boutiques and stores offering designer accessories, the unique Neon Museum, and even a theatre and a tattoo studio – only here artists can accomplish projects and ideas that could not be realised elsewhere. The Soho Factory, famous for the acclaimed fashion shows, non-mainstream events, picnics, bazaars and training, trade events and concerts of both popular and niche performers attracts people, who want to get away from daily routines. It is exactly the location where daring plans meet actual possibilities. The outcome is a unique atmosphere of creative work merged with top-level entertainment.
