A calm Vegan and Vegetarian Spot in the Hustle and Bustle
The Gallery Cafe is a lovely charity-driven vegetarian and vegan spot hosting art exhibitions and events. Conveniently located in a great location; near a Boris Bike pick-up point, Victoria Park, Museum of Childhood, Bethnal Green tube station, Brick Lane and more, it is perfect if you’re spending a few hours in East London!
During summer weekends, you can bask in the sunshine on the sun- trap terrace and back garden, whilst spending the rest of the year getting cosy inside the cafe with nice music, access to speedy wifi, and friendly faces.
The cafe have we won Best Cafe in Bethnal Green at the Time Out Love London Awards for the last three consecutive years, and all profits generated by Gallery Cafe go straight back into charity, so by hanging around, you’ll not only enjoy award-winning food, drinks and good vibes, you’ll also be helping to support the local community.
The backyard is great on summer but the fresh vegan burger and home made fries are why you should stop by! The place is charming and I warmly recommend it to you, vegan or food lover.
London’s Very Own Home of BBQ, Blues & Rock’n’Roll
Blues Kitchen is definitely one of my to-go-place when I want to dance in Shoreditch. They have a restaurant and a late night bar serving nice cocktails and they host the best blues in London. Cool live-band music, colourful cocktails, great American BBQ classic/New Orleans soul food will be the perfect mix to start your evening.
If you wanna try their cuisine be sure to book in advance as the restaurant gets really packed on weekends. The bar and music will stop before 3 am.
Joan Cornellà is a Barcelona based cartoonist and illustrator famous for his works imbued with unsettling, surreal, and black humour. Through simplistic visual language, he satirizes the sinister and often bleak side of humanity through unconventional scenarios. In these times of extreme hypocrisy, the artist sheds some light onto ourselves, unveiling human nature in Cornella’s notoriously disquieting manner.
The 17-day exhibition from 15th of September to the 1st of October, hosted at the charming Hoxton Arches, will include new canvas paintings and limited edition illustrations, as well as books, shirts, and prints available for purchase. Joan will be signing copies of his new book, SOT, on various occasions across the exhibition.
