Vincent Roman – Why I Love Shoreditch

There are so many reasons why I love Shoreditch: the braggards, the hipsters, the charity mums, the Sunday flower market jaunters. Shoreditch is not just a pastiche; it is a living organism that with every day awakes, kicking and screaming to life, reminding the world of what a unique, if somewhat troublesome child it is....

Dining in Shoreditch: High 'n Dry

So, in the heart of vibrant Shoreditch I found an oasis called Jamies [sic]. The first thing you see are the twin staircases spiralling up to a corridor resembling a New Orleans veranda or the front of a Mexican hacienda - only, somehow disappointingly, the pastel green doors did not open into the luxuriant beauty of a South American inner courtyard nor the warm interior of a Creole house, but to a selection of stylish, beautifully decorated, perfectly functional toilets. The staircases are, I imagine, an exercise in equilibrium on a Friday night. The only way you can survive the twisting and turning of those steps is by ordering just the right amount of food to go with your wine....

Nana Aboagyewaa – Why I Love Shoreditch

Looking to the north City of London star! People busy, lights flashing, loud noise. A burst of aromas in the air, where the crossroads meet. From the old skool vintage to the new age fashion rebel. Just classic! What else can I say? Shoreditch! There. I said it. Just waiting to arrive from Liverpool street bitting my finger nails with excitement, craving that night life and the pounding tunes....

Shaken, Stirred, Sedated

I’m going to be perfectly honest with you - I hate vodka. In fact, aside from [proper] ale, champagne, cognac, and white wine, I won’t touch much else. Nonetheless, being the adventurous spirit that I am, I accepted an invite to an exclusive evening of Belvedere vodka tasting at the oh-so-trendy Callooh-Callay....

Carmen Wycisk – Why I Love Shoreditch

Shoreditch is to me the main inspiration in terms of art, music and fashion. For the past few years, every Londoner has taken something from it, was inspired by it, or has wanted to live there. If you are an art fanatic, and love installations, you can try a new exhibition every Thursday, and wonder at some different ranges of arts, some amazing and some not-yet ready, and broaden your experience of modern art. After all, modern art started over a century ago, so we need to keep updated....

Diamonds are Forever

Some weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending the opening of Memento Mori, a unique exhibition at the Hoxton Art Gallery which delves deep into the meaning of mortality. Among the many talented artists whose works are currently being featured at the gallery (the exhibition runs until the 6th of October), I had the chance to chat with Shane Mecklenburger, the man behind the mysterious Armadillo Diamond....

Em Yêu Anh, or, I Love You

When you finish eating, rest your chopsticks on top of your rice bowl, thank you very much. And thank Buddha this isn’t someone’s home, because you left your etiquette at the door by not bringing fruit, sweets, flowers or incense. And next time, if you do happen to remember to bring flowers, make sure they’re not yellow or chrysanthemums. No I’m not your mother-in-law or strict grandmother laying dinning etiquette rules down on the table like a bowl of scalding custard - I’m talking Vietnamese culture and their deliciously captivating way of doing things....
