Charterhouse Street is famous for its gastropubs that attract local City workers and is a popular venue for clubbers, mostly known for Fabric.

Charterhouse Street is also the home of a 31 MWe Combined Heat and Power plant operated by Citigen (E.ON) and located within and beneath the former headquarters of the Port of London Authority.[1]
