5 Things To Do In East London

So your day’s cleared up and you’re in East London. You don’t fancy heading home yet, so what do you do?

1Bounce Ping Pong

Here’s where you go to start your afternoon/evening. It’s guaranteed fun, won’t break the bank and is a good way to get to know someone who you’re perhaps not too familiar with. Also the cocktails are insane and the staff are fab.

2The English Restaurant

Here’s where you get your grub. Good, hearty, English food with enough modern panache to keep it Instagramable. Top tip from Wesley Mendy, order the Meat Pudding. You won’t regret it

3Old Truman Brewery

A venue that has the amazing claim of being amazing no matter what is on show the Truman is ALWAYS worth a trip. By keeping standards high but taking risks with up and coming artists you’re guaranteed an anecdote or two. Plus culture always SOUNDS good even if you don’t quite understand it

4Barrio East

There’s a reason this place is always rammed. It’s awesome, bar staff are quick and efficient and we’ve found that their group cocktails are some of the best in London. Try and book ahead for a table but if not you’ll be pretending you can salsa regardless.

5Brick Lane Bagels

No night out would end correctly if it didn’t end here. Buy yourself a treat for the morning and your future self won’t regret it. Top tip : the bakery is what the heart emoji was invented for.
