Where do Bishopsgate locals go?

Spitalfields Market

Great places to eat, loads of quirky gift ideas and a venue for all kinds of events, including a pop-up hotel.

Finsbury Avenue Square Market

Every other Tuesday there is a wonderful artisan market with everything from cheese and wine stalls, haggis toasties and Japanese food, to the more standard but delicious cakes, cookies and doughnuts!

Duck & Waffle

This restaurant in The Heron is a great way to start the day and there's not a bad view either... Breakfast is a must!!

Ozone Coffee Roasters

Proper coffee in warehouse-style surroundings and food too, served from breakfast through to dinner.

The Breakfast Club

Fantastic breakfast dishes served throughout the day, but be warned, it gets very busy at the weekend, so expect to queue.

Sushi Samba

Busy but buzzing and the cocktails are amazing. If you want to try sushi for the first time, no better place. Delicious!

Bishopsgate Kitchen

Great food in a glass-walled Benugo restaurant that has a varied menu made using local produce. It is just a short walk from London Liverpool Street and Spitalfields Market.

Trapeze

Quirky interiors and crazy cocktails, this restaurant-cum-club is great for a number of different occasions.

The Folly

The Folly at Monument is like a Secret Garden! Perfect for weekend brunches, lazy lunches or catch ups after work - whatever the occasion, the Folly can do it!

Urban Food Fest

This food festival off Shoreditch High Street is there every Saturday throughout the day and late into the night. There's loads of delicious food stalls with cuisines from all over the world and bars serving tasty cocktails.

The Royal Exchange

A great place to pick up jewellery for a loved one while having lunch or afternoon tea.

Galvin La Chapelle

This Michelin-starred French restaurant is perfect for a special occasion. Impressive food in an even more impressive setting within a beautiful converted church.

The Barbican Exhibition Centre

A quirky but intimate spot for live plays and music events. Home of London Symphony Orchestra!

Nightjar

The most sophistication you can find between two kebab shops on a roundabout. A speakeasy-style cocktail bar underneath the adjacent shops, serving the best cocktail creations in town.

The Breakfast Club

Always busy, with great breakfasts throughout the day, as well as lunch and dinner menus.

"The smallest piece of permanent art in London is at the junction of Philpot Lane and Eastcheap and displays two mice fighting over a piece of cheese. This sculpture remembers the story of two workmen working on the building's construction who fought over a lost piece of cheese, which led to the death of one of the men after falling from the structure."
