Shoreditch has generated buzz in recent years for being one of the trendiest neighborhoods in East London. Lots of funky shops and lively bars attract an interesting mix of yuppies, business-types, and hipsters.Recommended for:Trendsters

Poke around this eclectic neighborhood which is clearly coming on strong. The new Ace Hotel and Tramshed restaurant add to the emerging hipster vibe, but in a very good way. Lots of nice little shops.

I really love this Bohemian Neighborhood! If you love art then the galleries will captivate you. The Whitechapel Gallery is my favorite for contemporary art. The Spitalfields Markets has art, fashion shows and wonderful restaurants. The Boundary Hotel is frequented by hipsters, a great place to people watch.

Sometimes one of the best things about being a parent is a night off. Shoreditch is packed with bars and clubs. It's long been one of London's hippest neighborhoods and is a great place for a night out without the kids, recommends Jen Howze of Britmums.

Like just about anywhere in London, Shoreditch offers a diverse array of things to do. For a good pub experience, I recommend The King's Head, Hoxton Bar and Grill, and the The Macbeth. As for Cafes, The Diner is a good bet.
If you're interested in more exotic fare, head to Brick Lane: you can get a great shawarma at Damascu Bite, and the best Indian food around at Monsoon. Or, for a more authentic British experience, head over to F Cooke's Pie 'n' Mash on Hoxton Street. I went there on the premise that if it was good enough for David Beckham (he's a big fan), it's good enough for me.
As for shopping, Shoreditch is a paradise if you're in the market for vintage clothes. If you prefer haute couture, though, you'd be better off visiting Oxford St., which is located just eight stops away on the Circle Line.
