It has not been long ago since a friend of a friend visiting London asked me for an itinerary in order to discover what it was broadly known as the hipster Shoreditch. I am not sure if this term still applies to the area but what you can definitely have instead, it’s what hipster Shoreditch has evolved itself to.
You may have heard about the full English breakfast. Have you, right? Ok, now forget about it. You cannot have eggs, if you don’t have crushed avocado under it. Shoreditch is where the Cereal Killer Café firstly opened and inaugurated the healthy breakfast revolution. It is all about the chia and the matcha baby!
This is where hipsters are mainly fitsters, this is where the exercising takes place in exposed brickwall classes under arches. Fit girls and boys re-introduce themselves via opinionated outfits. It’s not just buttoned up or perfectly trimmed, it’s just one of a kind. Shops here are branded but reflect the mainstreamless of the area. And when it comes to means of transport , this is just a fixed gear bike, nothing else than this, ok and the OG (overground).
What is still unique in Shoreditch though is the feeling of the community. The whole area feels like an extended house that welcomes all the young techie creatives who believe into a new non- trumpalised american dream.
You may find yourself feeling at home while working hard at the Ace Hotel i-bench. Or you could host a great getogether for friends and other fellows at the Shoreditch House which is ‘Home’ for many likeminded out there.
