A LOCAL'S GUIDE TO SHOREDITCH

June 15, 2016

Boundary Hotel - Tracey Neuls How do you like to start your day? I usually grab a coffee and an addicting granola bar from the Albion Counter. I stroll with my French Bull dog over to Arnold Circus for a little walk, fresh morning air and quiet before the day begins. What does your morning look like? My mornings are key to planning the remainder of the day. I can’t function without a ‘list’. Liaising with my staff, reading a rash of emails and back to the list to sort out a myriad of things to do between retail, wholesale and online functions! Where do you like to go for lunch? Lunch is usually on the fly. I often grab some cheese and crackers from Leila’s on Calvert Avenue and eat at my desk. Or the new Meihui Lie’s restaurant called Dumpling Heart offers a warm alternative. What’s your favourite part of Shoreditch? There is a flash, bird’s eye view of Shoreditch when taking the overground that is kind of great. You can see the dramatic mix of old/new architecture and art. This ride more or less encapsulates the area in seconds. There are also still a couple good galleries left – look up Kate MacGarry and Hales. What one place is a must-see/do for you? There is a designer who does fantastical, beautiful designs called Tord Boontje. He has his studio/shop on 23 Charlotte Road where you can experience his work. Take your time – the details are worth appreciating. Where would you go for a drink after work? The Owl & Pussy Cat has a fun little outdoor area that is fantastic in the summer time. We like to go there on Friday’s. I am a wine drinker, so amongst all the beer I appreciate that they have some good white wines on the menu like Chablis and Sancerre. Where would you go for dinner? Andina! The passion of owner Martin Morales comes through in everything from the friendly staff, interior design to, of course, the food. Do try the Corn Cake & Avocado. Anything later-night that you like…? The Boundary rooftop is a very special place. Ready for any weather, the staff are always so attentive, blankets at the ready and rooftop view remains one of the most enjoyable experiences in Shoreditch – and I am not just saying that!
