It’s easy to poke fun at Shoreditch. The area is a curious blend of hipsters and suits that has seen a lot more chains arriving in recent years. But it’s still a place where creativity and tech thrives. A healthy number of start-ups, independent shops, eateries, and bars fight to fend off the corporate takeover.

Just up the road from Shoreditch High Street Overground Rich Mix, a cinema and multi-arts venue showing films, theatre, and also supports access to arts in east London. The Ace Hotel is pretty swanky but has a more rough and ready basement venue that puts on decent, small gigs. Remnants of the area’s industrial past still exist in places like former hat factory, Redchurch Gallery, and the Tea Building on Bethnal Green Road. There is no shortage of coffee shops, and street food can be found Dinerama, Urban Street Market and the Pump Street Food Market.
