We love our Shoreditch neighbourhood so each month we’re turning the spotlight over to them; whether it be a Merchants regular or a local supplier, artist, musician, or entrepreneur.
In the Spotlight this month is Shoreditch local Alex Outlaw, CMO and Co-Founder at TheIdleMan.com, a new menswear retailer based just off Brick Lane. Alex has lived in Shoreditch for around 6 years and for him the best the the buzz with a new store, restaurant or cool bar opening every week. Here’s Alex’s Shoreditch tips:
Tipple of choice
Head down to Brew Dog on Bethnal Green Road for a pint of Punk Ipa.
Brunch or Lunch
It has to be brunch as I’m not a big eater first thing in the morning and it’s a great excuse to start the party early.
If you are looking for some flowers head down to Columbia Road around 2:30 and grab yourself a bargain, they sell a lot of the stuff off cheap at the end of the day.
Big night out
Hackney Wick is a great place at the moment with loads of cool stuff from Crate Brewery, Grow and Number 90 to name a few…
I went to see the Oasis documentary the other day at the Richmix, so their greatest hits is on constant replay right now.
