Crouched between two towering chimneys in the depths of Brick Lane sits the Old Truman Brewery. The residents have made it a counter-cultural mecca: Europe’s biggest record label, vast food and vintage markets, independent fashion labels and a number of legendary bars.But behind the hippy façade beats a capitalist heart. Top creative agencies call these converted warehouses home, and it’s not unusual to hear deals made over a cocktail or two in the pedestrianized side streets.View all The Old Truman Brewery spaces
I love going out to the underground parties here. There's always something happening.
It's unique, off-beat. There are many young emerging designers here.

The vintage shopping is amazing – there's such a huge amount to discover.
