The Clove Club
One of London’s best restaurants, the Clove Club has a Michelin star for a reason. Every dish is inventive and favours British ingredients which are often overlooked. The result is a tasting menu where each course seemingly gets better than the last. Their signature dish of raw Orkney scallop with Perigord truffle, hazelnut and clementine is a thing of beauty.

The Boundary
The Boundary is Shoreditch’s coolest rooftop bar. When the sun comes out, the terrace is buzzing with hipsters drinking summary cocktails and enjoying the relaxed vibe. Once the sun has gone down, head downstairs to the underground bar and restaurant which is the epitome of cool with dimly lit lighting, high ceilings and exposed brick walls.

Barbour and Parlour
Barber & Parlour indulges guests in a whole host of beauty treatments – the New York style beauty emporium houses a hair salon, barbershop and manicure bar. After you've been preened and pampered, head downstairs to the basement cinema and cocktail bar. Movies and a new hair-do all under one roof? This might be a novel concept for London, but it's likely to catch on.

The Hoxton
The Hoxton is one the trendiest hotels in the heart of Shoreditch. It houses a fashionable cocktail bar, speciality coffee shop, photo booth and gourmet restaurant under its roof, meaning you never need leave the hotel. That being said, with all of Shoreditch's hotspots right on the doorstep you won't have to go far to explore. The downstairs bar-brasserie is one of the hippest places in town attracting dozens of non-guests every night, but upstairs the rooms remain so quiet that you would never know there is a secret party going on a few floors down. Popular with those in the know, rooms at this design-conscious hotel tend to go very quickly.

Columbia Road Flower Market
Only a short walk from Shoreditch you’ll find the world-famous Columbia Road flower market. Londoners flock here on Sundays to pick up tissue paper peonies and violet-hued hydrangeas to decorate their apartments. It has become somewhat of a Sunday tradition, not just for the flowers, but also for the atmosphere, coffee shops and cool hangouts along the street.
