It seems that commentators are conflating two different modern issues: urban sprawl/gentrification and rising economic inequality. The latter might be fuelling the former but policy intervention in one is very different to the other.

Chloe and I were in her favourite pub in Shoreditch. She knew the bar staff by name, they did not however know hers. It was a typical East London locale, lots of old mismatched furniture, '70s reggae and obscure beer served in strange glasses. The concept of 'shabby-chic' is artful in its deception.

It's Friday afternoon and I'm in the museum's entrance hall, about to begin a "Shoreditch's Saucy Side" archeological tour. I'm joined by seven others hoping for a fun and humorous exploration of erotica.

Alex's attack on "Shoreditchification" goes beyond the shores of Brick Lane, Hackney Road, Shoreditch High Street, Kingsland Road and surrounding areas. It's a real dig at what Londoners are all about. Get over it Alex, go and mingle with your gentrified buddies and chill out.

London has the reputation of being extremely expensive, and fair enough, in some parts it really is. However, there are plenty of deals to be found, and plenty of locals who demand to have a good time without spending all their wages.

It used to be that affordable pricing and providing people with an artistic hub was the driver of demand of properties in Shoreditch in London. In the late 90s and early 00s, this part of the capital city became famous for being an artistic hot-spot. Inevitably, this saw an increasing number of people looking to move in...

I Hate Fussy Eaters, but There's a New Restaurant in Town

I am still wary of people who begin meals with a list of things they 'do not eat', or who pick at food warily, as though it were filled with menace, rather than a bowl of spaghetti. I am delighted, therefore, with the new venture from Cameron Worth and Rolan Dack: Ronnie Saunders Diners Union.

It's Hard to be a London Hipster

Danielle Warren | Posted 08.07.2013 | UK Lifestyle
Danielle Warren

For those who aren't hipster-literate, a London hipster is particularly easy to spot. Think an explosion of all the trends you thought you'd left behind in the 90s and you're almost there. Non-prescription glasses for that extra summin' summin'. Beanie hats even in warm weather (teamed with sunglasses for that extra ironic charm). Exuberant moustaches, skinny jeans and a fondness for never wearing socks - it's simply the hipster way.

Worn almost as a badge of pride by the likes of Bubble Dogs, Barrafina, Lobster Burger, MEATLiquor, Polpo, 10 Greek St and, of course, Dishoom, the no reservation policy might as well be a by-word for trendy, casual dining. It also means that if you get your timing wrong you could be waiting up to two hours to eat.
