It is important to note that Shoreditch is not actually a city. Rather, it is a neighbourhood of London. That being said, there is always so much in terms of date ideas going on in Shoreditch that we thought it deserved its own directory! Many neighbourhoods of London could have their own date spots directory but Shoreditch is one of the coolest, most interesting of all the London 'hoods. Part start-up work haven, part nightclub hot-spot, this neighbourhood has changed a lot in the last decade to become London's best area.
The history of nightlife and date ideas in Shoreditch is very interesting. Shoreditch used to primarily be a work area. It is still full of office buildings and it is also located very close to Liverpool Street Station, one of London's major transport hubs. But because there were so many people working all day in the area, a demand for more nightlight and date spots grew. Pretty soon nightclubs and speciality bars were popping up all over the place to make Shoreditch the super cool hangout spot that it is today.
Shoreditch never sleeps! Despite being a major work hub, where offices tend to close around 5PM and not be open on the weekends, Shoredtich bars and clubs are always open late. Some of the few all-night parties and clubs are also located in Shoreditch and no matter what time of day or night it is you can always find a bite to eat. Seriously, out of all of the UK date ideas, Shoreditch offers the most late night options.
