Just behind Brick Lane, on Commercial Road, there is a restaurant known throughout the whole capital for its meat dishes - Hawksmoor. They say that the most delicious steaks and burgers in London are cooked here. Who does not want to check this personally?

Cocktails and night life.

After a long working day, we recommend that you take a look into the pub Alice. There is quite a lot of space here, so you do not have to sacrifice your personal space. Visitors are offered a large selection of beers and cocktails, and the interior in the style of the 50's will allow you to relax with chic.

Another great option is the Exit Bar. A simple name hides an equally simple menu, which includes burgers and cocktails. But why complicate the leisure, right?
