4 gems of stylish Shoreditch, London

Located in the East End of London to the north of the City of London, this inner city district draws thousands of people from all parts of the world. Anyone can fall short of words when it comes to describing the spirit of Shoreditch – from artsy people and the party animals to influential people from the music industry and charming fashionistas. Unmatched in energy, Shoreditch takes art and originality to another level.  Buy a cocktail or two or enjoy a succulent meal. We are persuaded. Shoreditch For an enjoyable and festive evening… Portside Parlour Speakeasy? Check! Underground? Check! Extravagant? Check! Portside Parlour is the quintessence of quirky and chic and the bar is well-hidden on one of London’s most festive streets: Rivington Street. Portside Parlour has a mouth-watering seasonal tapas menu inspired by the southern-European cuisine. You’re in for a treat, settle for comfort in the gloomy bar and ask for this week’s cocktail or try one of the – hold on – nothing less than eighty different types of rum and a carefully chosen cocktail menu. All priced from £8 and up and all truly tasty which fits the catchy atmosphere just perfect. NB! You might end up staying longer than planned. Portside For a refined experience… Disappearing Dining Club When the owners of DDC discovered an unused kitchen and a complete empty warehouse in the back of clothing shop Ante, it didn’t take long for them to plus two and two and the mysterious Disappearing Dining Club was born on in a second on famous Brick Lane. The place that everyone had been waiting for: a house for social butterflies fancying an intimate, flirty, friendly and festive evening with great friends, cheerful DJ-beats and outstanding food from the now-used kitchen. A solid night out you probably won’t forget anytime soon. DDC is happening every Wednesday and Saturday and not two menus are alike. A treat for the ladies… The Painted Lady London Ever wondered how the 1940s actresses were able to achieve those incredible and flawless looks? Do you dream about being just as perfect at Rita Hayworth? Think Mad Men meets Dita Von Teese. Pin up perfection! The painted Lady London is a splendid retro-hair and beauty salon on Redchurch Street in Shoreditch where you can pretend it’s 1948. Get your vintage hair do with pin curls, hair pins, bows, buns and hair rollers, there’s no limits here. Spoil yourself or surprise a special friend with a truly indulgent treat. The salon does hen parties as well as bridal showers, and whether you’re looking to get a mani, pedi or eyebrows – it’s all done here. You can even rent the whole salon to yourself and did we mention that there are bubbles involved too? What’s not to love? The Painted Lady London A proper roast! Hawksmoor Forget about sacred Sundays! Sundays are the days where, you get to embrace the city of London, and by that means enjoying a proper Sunday Roast at Hawksmoor, just on the edge of the Shoreditch boarder located on Commercial Street in Spitalfields you’ll find one of the best lunches in town. Its East, it’s crispy, it’s satisfactory and we wouldn’t miss it for a thing. Rikke Mikkelsen is Digital Marketing Manager at Ratedapartments.com.

  1. I was in London in November and didn’t get a chance to make it to Shoreditch, but I will definitely make it when I go sometime this year. All those places sound great, especially the Portside Parlour and Disappearing Dining Club. Thanks for this!
