Dray Walk (off Brick Lane)
A tributary into its famous neighbouring road, Brick Lane, we at Hg2 feel Dray Walk deserves more attention. A Butcher of Distinction Boys’ boutique sells cool, casual menswear from underground, overground and traditional labels, too, whereas Gloria’s is a sneaker freak’s fantasy, stocking all sorts of rare, collectible trainers. Our favourite Dray Walk joint, however, has to be Rough Trade East. This place is Indie heaven; whilst you browse records or sip coffee at the bar you can take in live music from local talent on their stage. Definitely worth a visit if you love the grunge.
