#CityStories: Coffee

Need a caffeine kick in Shoreditch? Or, perhaps, somewhere chilled out to pause and reflect over a cup of something warm? You’ll love the recs in this third (and final) video instalment for my City Stories collaboration with Point A Hotels.

The clip sees me darting round Shoreditch and diving into three of my preferred places to grab a coffee. Conveniently enough, all three are situated near the new Point A Hotel on Paul Street in Shoreditch.

A few of the best Shoreditch hotspots for coffee (IMHO) are …

  • Allpress Espresso Bar – Cosy nook with topnotch beans roasted in East London and far better fare than usually found in cafes;
  • The Old Shoreditch Station – Superb coffee backed up with a mellow vibe and an excellent soundtrack for whatever brings you in off the street; and
  • Shoreditch Grind – Buzzing place to secure a quality caffeine buzz conveniently situated next to Old Street Station.

As a freelancing flaneur based in East London with a WiFi addiction and a penchant for coffee, I’ve got strong opinions about where one ought to go for an optimal café experience. It’s a pleasure to share three of my Shoreditch faves with you.

Thanks to the baristas at these venues for allowing the crew and me to film in your establishments.

About Point A Hotels

Point A Hotels is a brand new hotel group, launching six hotels in London and one in Glasgow. The group’s aim is to provide guests with affordable accommodation in super central locations.

The Paul Street hotel certainly fits that bill with loads of awesome things to see and do – and easy access to public transport – right outside its door. Whether you’re booking a room for business or pleasure, Point A does a stellar job offering guests everything they need, and nothing they don’t.

And that’s why I teamed up with Point A to create City Stories, to encourage the hotel’s guests to get out and explore the neighbourhood where they’re staying and experience the best of what’s nearby.

I’ll be back soon to wrap this series up. Until then check out this competition with the chance to win a personalised VIP experience for two in Shoreditch or Glasgow or £500 cash: pointahotels.com/uplift-your-stay.

Point A Hotel London Shoreditch is located at 8-10 Paul Street, EC2A 4JH. Find out more at pointahotels.com.

More City Stories posts coming soon! Thanks.
