Lounge Lover
No. 1 Whitby Street
London E1 6JU
When you’re thinking of Shoreditch ‘after dark’ then this is the perfect option for pre dinner drinks before heading over to sister restaurant Le Trois Garcon for dinner. The interior is an incredible Aladin’s cave of antique furniture and objet d’art. Delicious cocktails in a decadent venue. Good for a first date (if you’re not paying!). The perfect Shoreditch offering for some after-dark atmosphere.

Le Trois Garcon
1 Club Row
London E1 6JX
Owned by the same eccentric trio as Lounge Lover, Hasan, Micheal and Stefan are from Malaysia, France and Sweden respectively. They bought the converted Victorian Pub back in 1996 to live in, filling it with chandeliers, taxidermy and exaggerated decor. It opened as a restaurant in 2000. Le trois Garcon is a well loved fixture on the Shoreditch food scene.

Think Alice in Wonderland set in a retro modernist world. Worth popping in for a drink just to see the quirky interior.
Hoxton London Bar Grill garden
Hoxton Square Bar and Kitchen
2 Hoxton Street
N1 6NG
It’s an oldie but a goody. A lot of Hoxton Square feels over commercialised with visiting groups of hen and stag do’s on weekend nights. But Hoxton Square Bar has managed to retain its cool ranking by hosting great underground DJ’s and live bands in the back room club. The outdoor smoking terrace is fit to burst on weekends. Its free to get in but arrive early (before 10pm) to avoid queueing.

Great for drinks on the gorgeous rooftop terrace and brunch on sunny sundays. Slightly more pricey than your average Shoreditch haunt but the view makes it worth the price tag. The Albion Cafe downstairs has outdoor seating and is an easy lunch option, last time I went I bumped into fashion designer Richard Nicoll and stopped for a latte. For a good hotel base in Shoreditch, The Boundary Rooms are light, airy, beautifully designed and in a great location.

Shoreditch House is a private members club with a strict door policy, no entry unless you’re a member or accompanied by one, alternatively you can pay to be a guest in the Shoreditch Rooms, the hotel section of the house. The crowd is mainly media and creative types and the dress code is laid back but stylish, no-suits allowed. For the best place for pampering in Shoreditch head to the Cowshed Spa on the ground floor (open to non members as long as you book in advance). The pool parties on bank holiday weekends are riotous, a little bit of Ibiza in East London! The bars and restaurants throughout the building are always buzzing come evening. Part of the fashionable Soho House group, Shoreditch House has become an East London institution and a fashion industry favourite.

Late Night Shoreditch
If private members clubs and roof terraces are a bit too clean for your taste then grungy late night venues and dive bars are easy to come by in the East London.

Dalson London superstore cocktails bar
91 Kingsland High Street


E8 2PB

The ultimate too cool for school venue in Shoreditch.
A neon lit grimy staircase leading to a dimly lit basement dive bar, its hot, sweaty and according to Elle’s fashion assistants the coolest after hours club in East London, if you don’t mind sticking to the floor.
