There’s something really cool about the East. It’s like London is actually two brothers, with The City being the successful lawyer one and Shoreditch, the one who experimented in high school, now working at a coffee shop and living in a dingy flat in Soho; all part of its charm!
I’ve never really explored the East further out than Brick Lane, but if tonight is anything to go by, I’ll definitely be visiting more. My friend Dave decided to go out for his birthday to a gamer disco at The Book Club. They set out loads of consoles, people brought NESs, N64s, Wiis, DreamCasts, the lot! We got there quite late, so it was dying down a little, which did mean we could play on everything, I got my butt handed to me on several occasions playing SSBB! But it was really fun, dingy, out of the way, basement and drinks kinda fun which made an excellent change and a brilliant night out/in.
