Try the goldfish bowls in this trendy cocktail bar on Brick Lane...

Geffrye Museum

Geffrye Museum

If you can't face the crowds at London's bigger museums, head to this place for a quieter and nicer experience. This museum is all about the home throughout the centuries and the café sells delicious cakes too!

Clutch

Clutch

An incredible restaurant in east London. Bright yellow and tiny in size, it serves the best fried chicken with American-style sides, including the dill and pomegranate slaw, which is unreal! Booking is recommended...

The Free Association

The Free Association

A world class improv comedy theatre tucked away above De Beauvoir Arms pub on Southgate Road. Shows multiple nights a week featuring future and current TV and live comedy performers.

The Baring

The Baring

Long lazy Sundays or a swift ale after a busy day at work, The Baring is an ever popular watering hole that also has a serious Tuesday night quiz!

BIRD

The only place in London to do a bacon doughnut... They also have amazing chicken and lunchtime deals in the week!

Tramshed

Tramshed

A Mark Hix restaurant with a huge Damien Hurst cow and chicken on display, created specifically for Tramshed! The menu is simple but very tasty!

Honest Burgers

Honest Burgers

The Honest Burger cocktails are absolutely fantastic and the staff are exceptionally friendly too!

Pho House

Pho House

After trying nearly all of the Vietnamese restaurants on Kingsland Road, this is by far the best. The setting is cool with graffiti style art on the walls and the service is excellent compared to other places on the same road. Complimentary tea and watermelon at the end is exactly what is needed after trying the extensive menu of pho, noodles, summer rolls and fresh fish.

The Breakfast Club

The Breakfast Club

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

Café Health

Café Health

A lovely little Caribbean restaurant on Mare Street in East London. They offer the best jerk chicken along with other Caribbean dishes.

Diddy's

Diddy's

Diddy's, a café by day and bustling bar by night is a cultural hub situated on the corner of Mare Street and beck road. Just a stone throw away from London fields, this bright and light space offers everything from coffee to their signature cocktails at reasonable prices creating an environment where patrons feel valued and where you "can have a night out without feeling like you have spent all your rent money" owned by Diddy herself.

The Pantry

The Pantry

Specialist eggless cakes for every occasion!

69 Colebrooke Row

69 Colebrooke Row

One of London's best kept secrets. The size of a small living room, but serving the best experimental cocktails around. The bar uses spirits and drinks that it infuses itself in a drinks laboratory and the staff wear lab coats.

Brick Lane

Brick Lane

You'll be spoilt for choice along Brick Lane when it comes to curry houses! The deals that some restaurants offer are out of this world...

Why not explore the nearby areas of Hoxton, De Beauvoir Town, Dalston, Shoreditch, Bethnal Green, Spitalfields, Islington, Canonbury, Newington Green and Hackney

"After excavating under his house on Mortimer Road for 40 years up to 20 metres in each direction, William Lyttle or known affectionately as 'Mole Man' was finally taken to court by Hackney Council."

The arrival of the London Overground in Haggerston has really opened up this area for commuters.

Alexandra Haywood

Shoreditch's equally trendy neighbour, Hoxton has a well established arts and entertainment scene.

Nick Batten

Shoreditch is to London now, what King's Road was in the '60s.
