If you want an alternative night in Shoreditch this is a great option. Beer prices are around 5£ and there are live music. ( not all the time) The only thing is one day that I wanted to see a band I guess they canceled...More

The western front of the edgy East End, Shoreditch is
a perennially trendy haven for anything “street” – be
it art, food, or fashion. With its handful of well
connected transportation links dotting its perimeter,
along with an ever increasing variety of shops,
hotels, bars, and restaurants, it's easy to explore
this trend-conscious and youth-oriented neighbourhood.
