A long weekend
in the East of London
We wish every month would be as merry as May. The sun is shining, spirits are lifted and above all else – May brings us hard workers not one but two bank holidays!
Located in the heart of East London, and as East London connoisseurs, we have compiled a few of our favourite things to do around our amazing area for you to make the most of a long weekend at South Place Hotel.
Shoreditch is one of London’s hippest areas and is bursting at the seams with things to see and do. Sample the amazing street food of markets like Dinerama or head down to Brick Lane to enjoy some of the world’s most loved cuisines.
Looking for a pick me up? Embark on a coffee shop crawl to get yourself full of energy and ready for the day ahead.
Whilst you’re in Shoreditch we think it is a necessity to go and explore London’s finest street art. Walk in almost any direction in Shoreditch and you will see street art that will blow you away.
If all that walking has tired you out, then a perfect option to finish the day would be at the Queen of Hoxton’s outdoor cinema – where you can enjoy cinematic gems like Mean Girls or Murder on the Orient Express. Sit down, kick back and end the day with a cocktail in hand.
If you are up for more of an energetic long weekend, East London has a unique bar and event scene. From a quiet drink to a raging party late into the night, find it all on our East London doorstep. Some of our top picks for bars and events to go to this weekend include:
Bounce Ping Pong bar where you can enjoy some great drinks and music whilst battling away at one of the many ping pong tables in the bar.
Want to get that perfect Instagram shot? Try Loves Company, quirky and neon lit with sensational cocktails your trip will be the envy of your friends.
Alternatively, there are some great events this weekend that you should definitely take advantage of. One of our favourites is The Blasé Music Club, which is holding a great live music event this Sunday with some innovative DJ’s and artists.
AND TO BED.
After all this fun you are going to need a bed to jump back into and South Place Hotel has the perfect offer to turn your good bank holiday into a great one!
With all this activity, a late check out on Monday morning is just the cure – especially if that hangover is a little bit too much!
