Folks We Like

Folks We Like

We're mighty fond of our community, from our next door neighbours through to our suppliers, with a number of people who have become good friends since we opened our doors falling somewhere in between. Can we introduce you to some folks we like:


The Salusbury and The Chamberlayne pub dining rooms

Rob Claassen started out as chef/owner in 1999, and his restaurant group has left its thumbprint on the good food and wines to be found in our local neighbourhood: the Salusbury and Chamberlayne gastro pubs, Messapica, and Salusbury Wine Store are all under his direction these days.  

We are deeply grateful to Rob and his staff. The voluntary donation scheme operating at the gastro pubs has made a huge difference to the children at the Sustainability Institute.  It's humbling to think that the good people of NW6/NW10 have raised around £22,000 over 4 years, all while enjoying the delicious food and fine beverages at the pubs.  You're heroes, the lot of you - starting with Rob, who was willing to take a punt on this idea.


RISE Design Studio

RISE Design Studio is an innovative contemporary architecture practice based in Queens Park.  Their work is informed by an awareness of place and context, craft and materiality, local climate, inclusion of sustainability; a consideration of form, and an understanding of the simplicity and quality of well-made buildings. We are grateful to RISE for their collaboration on the designed Lexi environment!


Greene & Co 

Local estate agents Greene & Co partner with us to bring you the best in film, at the best price.  Once a month Greene & Co hosts a special screening of our week's feature, with tickets priced at only £2.50.  Word spreads fast about when these go on sale; canny customers start to look for these screenings around the beginning of each month.  Thank you, Greene & Co!


RSM:  Chartered Accountants and Business Advisers

The nice folk at RSM are good friends to the Lexi, providing very practical support where needed.  In the past they sponsored our Met Opera season, and now we are grateful for their help with the printing of our weekly flyers.


Europa Cinemas

Founded in 1992 with funding from the MEDIA programme and from the Centre national du cinéma et de l'image animée (CNC), Europa Cinemas is the first film theatre network focusing on European films.  66 countries, 682 cities, 1182 cinemas, 3194 screens!


Film London

For all things 'Film' in London.  Literally!  Exhibition, development, training, funding, advice and networking - Film London is the place to start.


Kensal Studio

(n.) Pattern, colour, concepts, trends:  a visionary design studio to inspire and create. We are grateful to Kensal Studio for their simply swell exotic fabric in the hall which leads out to our yard. It is an original design, both inspirational and creative!



Independent communications agency Pagefield provides the Lexi with strategic public relations support and helps us gain vital media exposure.  The Lexi is a small fish for Pagefield, though; more often they are providing the same services – and more – to international companies such as Kellogg’s and British Airways. 


K2K Community Radio

K2K Radio was set up in 2012 by community radio lovers.  Since then the tribe has blossomed, and its range of DJs present a mix of great tunes, random endeavours, local and global focus, and always-engaging chat!  Located down at The Granville Centre, these good folk offer free radio production workshops, throw fun parties, train budding studio managers, and welcome new presenters and listeners daily.


l a m p  a r c h i t e c t s

Lamp Architects was formed nine years ago by Laura Jane Clark.  Their passion lies in innovative house designs, small scale redevelopment and micro-regeneration of long abandoned and brownfield sites. lamp helped transform our space with the design for the Gallery Bar.



For those occasions when you just can't make it to the Lexi, MUBI will stream their lovingly curated selection of cult, classic and independent films straight to you.  We share a passion for film of all sizes and colours with MUBI, and they've been our valued promotions partner throughout Lexi Film School.


Motion Picture Solutions

Like us, MPS are passionate about digital cinema.  They are a leading international film services company, providing solutions at all stages of theatrical film delivery.  Put simply, they keep us operating 364 days a year, providing essential tech support when needed.
