3 words: Chicken, steak, sharing. That's what you get at this very hip joint on Rivington Street. Worth checking out if you have a little cash to spend.

White Lyan

Drinks & NightlifeBars

Arguably the best cocktail I've ever had. Head to this supremely delicious bar for an unforgettable beverage. They're about to open in New York but this is the original.

If you want to walk a bit further and spend a bit more money, Sainsbury's by Angel tube station will have everything you need.

Made famous by being referenced in the classic nursery rhyme 'Pop Goes the Weasel', The Eagle pub has a very good selection of beer and has an outside area if the weather's good.

Very good pub on our street and it doesn't get quite as busy as The Eagle.

Gorgeous establishment but pricey and swish.

Sister-spot of Bodega Negra in Soho. Great Mexican food to be found here. Head to the low-lit Cabana Bar for more fun later.

This is on Boundary Street. This has a very British cafe kind of vibe if that's what you're into.

A decent greasy spoon serving breakfast or lunch at the end of of our road. A neighbourhood favourite.

1 local Airbnb host recommends

A tasty coffee house located on Old Street roundabout. Doubles as a cocktail bar at night. Grab a cup on your way to Old Street tube station in the morning, or something stiffer later on.
