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

Ozone Coffee Roasters

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

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

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...

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

This place is great for brunches and lunches. They have a cabaret place downstairs so you really could stay all day if you wanted to!

"In 1980 journalist Duncan Campbell entered (illegally) down an access shaft in Bethnal Green and attempted to cycle to Westminster. He was amazed at how well maintained and extensive the tunnels were under the city and had no need of a map as they were very well signposted."
