East London is where chefs come to innovate, with Michelin-quality food served up in unpretentious surroundings. Pop-ups and small neighbourhood restaurants abound, so many in fact that you could try a new one every night and never run out of options.
There are bars and pubs frequented by East London’s coolest crowd and street markets and delis that make food shopping a pleasure all within a few minutes’ walk of our canal-side community.
Live music can be found at a number of nearby venues, whether you’re in the mood for something intimate in an atmospheric basement bar or a large-scale gig experience in a huge nightclub setting.
And when it comes to that all important ‘me time’, you’ll be spoilt for choice. There are yoga studios, beauty salons and barbershops to suit all tastes plus peaceful green spaces for strolling, picnics and bikes rides.
“This is the most forward-thinking part of London when it comes to design, art and food”
