Based in the heart of London our UK team are busy building STYLIGHT UK in one of the world’s most fashion conscious cities. The office itself is situated in Clerkenwell, East London and is a stone’s throw from the tech hub of London, Silicon Roundabout. The office, also known as Huckletree is committed to sustainability; and is the UK’s first fully eco-friendly coworking space. We also spend time working out of the office at the achingly cool Shoreditch House and with a bar, killer restaurant and rooftop pool, isn’t a bad place to work!
So if you’re planning a trip to the big smoke we’ve compiled our list of the best hidden gems London has on offer:
Tonkotsu – If you’re looking for ramen this is it. Originally based in Soho, Tonkotsu can now be found in Dalston, Hackney and even Selfridges. Believe us, the queue is worth the wait.
Colony Grill Room – Chiltern Firehouse is so over dontcha know? If you want to have your eggs benedict next to Kate Moss this is the spot.
Lardo Bebe – Look, if there’s one thing we know (apart from fashion) it’s pizza. Lardo Bebe is a tiny pizza joint that’s totally one for the insiders: set in the heart of residential Hackney. Don’t miss their Speck pizza, the stuff of dreams.
Hoi Polloi – Access to Hoi Polloi (the restaurant offering from the effortlessly hip Ace Hotel) is via a teen,y tiny flower shop and once inside you’re met with a gloriously retro interior with some of the hottest waiters we’ve seen in a very long time. This is British food at it’s best.
Smack Deli – Where to begin? Everything about this place is spot on. The premise is simple: a takeaway counter of decadent lobster rolls. What’s not to love?
Mission – Set in old railway arches in East London’s Bethnal Green, Mission serves unmissable Californian food and was launched by the same team as
Sager & Wilde – a wine bar serving only grilled cheese sandwiches.
Cereal Killer Cafe – Sorry, we couldn’t resist! Yes, it’s over priced and a little pretentious but to be honest who doesn’t want to eat cereal all day long?!
The Good Life Eatery – Healthy food done well.
NOPI – Whatever Israeli chef Otam Ottolenghi touches turns to gold and NOPI is no exception. Small sharing plates and an ever changing menu.
Duck & Waffle – Boasting phenomenal views across London, Duck & Waffle is the highest restaurant in the UK. Located on the 40th floor of The Heron Tower, it’s also open 24hrs and makes for a very luxe midnight snack.
The Spurstowe Arms – For the classic British pub experience give the Spurstowe a try. Full of all walks of life and an array of obscure pale ales this is perfect for an after work pick me up. Their beer garden is glorious in the summer too.
Off Broadway – Perfect for a pre-game cocktail. We’ll take an espresso martini.
The Edition – Not to show off or anything but we’ve spotted Mick Jagger, Lily Aldridge & Cara Delevigne having drinks at this sleek hotel… I mean if it’s good enough for them right?
American Bar at the Beaumont Hotel – So chic, so luxurious, so sexy. The perfect date spot.
Mother Kelly’s – We challenge you to find a beer that’s not on sale here.
Ozone Coffee Roasters – If you’re less about the cocktails and more about the coffee give Ozone in Old Street a try. Top notch flat whites and some of the fanciest coffee machines we’ve ever laid eyes upon.
Columbia Road Flower Market – Ever wondered where all those hipsters buy their cacti? Head down to Columbia road on a Sunday morning and it’ll be some of the best people watching you’ve done in a long time.
Hawker House – If foodie heaven were a place on earth this would be it. An indoor food market with hundreds of traders serving everything from kimchi pancakes to steamed buns.
Hot Tub Cinema – Set in Netil House, Hot Tub Cinema is one of those pop up events that is on everyone’s lips. Essentially you’re watching movies in a giant hot tub with loads of strangers. Sounds weird but is actually awesome.
Broadway Market – A brilliant food market surrounded by a perfectly curated selection of shops. Start near the canal and work your way down ending up in London Fields.
God’s Own Junkyard – This place is visual heaven. The oldest sign maker in London, these guys make crazy neon signs to your very own specification.
Brixton Village – With more than 30 eateries and countless bars Brixton village is a cultural delight.
Dover Street Market – Your wallet won’t thank you but you’ll sure look stylish! Blending niche designer with quirky accessories finds this is a fashion lovers heaven.
