Cool and creative east London ‘hood

No longer the gritty underbelly of London, Shoreditch has cleaned up, and no street typifies this better than Redchurch Street, now a hotbed for standalone menswear stores such as Club Monaco, J.Crew and Whistles. In addition, barbershop Murdock has been responsible for turning out well-groomed gents for years. But it’s not just about the men. Aesop, Versace, Kit + Ace, Sweaty Betty, and Sunspel (to name a few) will keep the other half more than busy.

Top tip:

From Michelin-starred Lyle’s and The Clove Club to the hugely popular Dishoom, not to mention Som Saa, Pitt Cue Co, Blixen and Taberna do Mercado down the road in Spitalfields  – you don’t have to stray far from Redchurch Street to grab a bite.
