The Ins and Outs of Shoreditch: October
Shoreditch has become the place to be – whether you’re hungry, thirsty, or in need of some inspiration or excitement. It’s also become the number one place to base your small business or start-up, with its diverse and creative community, and plenty of shared office space. Shoreditch has so much to offer that we’ll be publishing a monthly guide to the ins and outs of the area. For October, we take a look at some of the best places to eat, drink and be merry near our premises.
Where to eat:
Cereal Killer Café
It started with a bang when two bearded brothers set up the country’s first ever cereal café in 2014 on Brick Lane. Since then, the divisive hipster duo have won over the capital’s taste buds, and even had to move to larger premises on the opposite side of Brick Lane. But don’t worry – it’s still decked out with enough retro memorabilia to send you on a trip down memory lane.
It may not be the most conventional choice for dinner, but its cereal concoctions are surprisingly filling – and tasty. Choose from a variety of milks – including non-dairy options, as well as chocolate milk – and a tonne of cereals from the UK and US, and finish with a variety of toppings. They also offer a variety of other food options, but we recommend keeping to the classic cereal. Oh, and you can top it off with a pretty impressive selection of decadent milkshakes.
Where to go for a drink:
This chic, stripped-back basement cocktail bar in Spitalfields is a good old-fashioned option for a fuss-free, well-made cocktail. Each one is created with care and precision, and your taste buds will thank you for it.
The interior design at Bar Three is the perfect balance of sleek, and cosy and chilled out, with many low-lit nooks and corners to cosy up into. It’s the perfect after-work drinks atmosphere, right in the heart of Shoreditch.
What else is going on?
There’s never a shortage of things to do in Shoreditch. And as the weather cools and the leaves begin to fall, there’s no better time of year to appreciate nature, and there’s no better way to appreciate nature than with a visit to Columbia Road Flower Market.
It’s one of London’s most popular weekend markets, with vendors filling the narrow street and selling everything from succulents and cacti to humble houseplants, bouquets and herbs.
Shoreditch is one of London’s best places to work and explore, which is why we’ll be bringing you our picks of the best it has to offer every month. Make sure to keep checking the blog to get all of our recommendations.
