Best spot for a caffeine hit
Fix 126 – great place for people-watching and celebrity-spotting
Best place to buy a cool new outfit
Goodhood – coolest designer garms and pretty sick home wear too!
Best café to get breakfast/ brunch
FRANCOS! Louis the owner is a don and a Shoreditch old timer.
Best place for a slap-up dinner
Gloria for fancy dates (try the carbonara – instagrammers dream)
MEATmission for mates/ dirty dates. WE ARE ADDICTED TO HIPPY FRISE! Also beware the unlabelled green liquor – many a Ruffian has been ruined by this at Christmas parties!
Best place to get a sweat on (do exercise!)
Frame – great selection of classes, from dance to spin – loads of fun and lovely mix of people.
Chroma Yoga – take some me time and stretch out your stresses in a beautiful studio that utilises light to enhance your experience.

The Curtain rooftop – the understated members club – cocktails and sunshine a plenty.
