VIA LIMEHOUSE On a budget? Still want something modern and swanky? Check out VL Hostel located in the edgy and exciting East London. You can watch the boats on Limehouse Basin stop along the riverside pubs. If you’re looking for some good nightlife, Shortdich is where you will find it. Nearby is Old Spitalfields Market or you can grab some curry on Brick Lane after a day of shopping the trendy and cutting edge fashion scene of the East End.
SKETCH Even beginning to describe Sketch is difficult and would not do this fascinating venue justice. The dining venue will suck you into its weird and ornate world, and you’ll never want to leave. Each room is a sensory overload, in a good way of course. Masterminded by Mourad Mazouz, a notable French figure known for his pop up restaurants and Pierre Gagnaire, recognized by his iconoclastic cooking. Getting afternoon tea in the all-pink gallery is a must, and don’t forget to check out the bathrooms, it is straight out of an Austin Powers movie.
DANS LE NOIR Ever wandered what it would be like to eat fully in the dark? Look no further. Eating in the pitch darkness enhances the experience of tasting the food. The buzzing atmosphere is exciting and a place you’ll want to keep coming back to. Especially fun to go to on occasions like halloween or birthday parties.
THE ROOTMASTER Right off of Brick Lane, the red bus can be found which is known as the first vegan ‘Bustaurant.” Parked outside of the Truman Brewery, you can always pop over from a cold one after your meal.
