Friday Night out in Shoreditch

Shoreditch Rocks

Cast: Myself , Paul, Matt and Peter. */archetype New Media/broadcast guys

Scene: All I knew about the plan for the night was "we were heading into Shoreditch". After work I picked up a 12 pack of Whitstable Bay Organic (only organic beer, available at short notice) and taxied through to Casa Del Paul.

Paul cooked up some treats for everyone, thereby ensuring the appropriate foundation for the forthcoming events. Once the team was assembled as per Paul's earlier suggestion we headed into Shoreditch, on the free nightbus.

Location: Gary’s Bar
Scene: A secret bar that is more like a house party than a commercial venture.
Highlight: Meeting some of the local East end characters. There was dancing on board room tables. Channel 4 presenters party'ing hard and surreal invites downstairs to view the art gallery (tour by one of the artists thrown in). The current exhibition is 12 Angry photographers.

All in all I had a great night; met some really good people and partied in some intresting spots. Had a real "Swingers" feel to it. Looking forward to the next one.
