Nice little neighborhood to visit if traveling to London. There's a variety of Chinese shops and restaurants to try especially if you are a foodie. There's was also live entertainment on the streets when we visited. Very lively at night.

There's a lingering post-industrial grit about
Shoreditch, but because it shares a border with “The City” financial district, the influence from its upscale neighbour can result in fascinating outcomes.
