East Side DigsEast London is a whole new world; this area brings in twentysomethings from all over the globe. The streets are lined with spectacular graffiti, and there is always something going on, whether it's a street party or a midnight showing. Grab a friend and set off on an adventure in East London.
Rosa's is an amazing Thai restaurant on 12 Hanbury Street, where the Massaman curry is delicious and you can order it spicier if you so desire. Just around the corner is Urban Outfitters and All Saints, if you are up for some afternoon shopping. On 12 Floral Street you can catch a show at this small open bar basement cinema under Aubin & Wills where you have plush velvet seats, blankets, and a great feature (Tip: get tickets early because it sells out fast). Then just stroll the streets of London. You are bound to find new friends to show you a good time in East London. When you are ready to call it a night (or morning, no judgment here), stay at the Hoxton Hotel, which gives you everything from a large, great-priced room to free breakfast from Pret-a-Manger in the morning just waiting outside your door (you can even order for two) .
