Shoreditch and Hoxton were the original Fri-Sun party spots of my twenties, and even though the area has changed significantly sprawling London’s own Silicon Valley and chains a-plenty, I still have a lot of love for this area. When it comes to drinks, eats, shopping and fun the area still retains its appeal with loads of great spots to offer, and with its relaxed vibe it's a pretty good place to hangout with your hound too.
If you’re looking for somewhere to grab a quick, easy and tasty bite (with the dog in tow), food arena Dinerama is a smorgasbord of fast food delights. From BBQ meats, brownies to burgers you won’t go hungry with the choices on offer. While I tucked into mini cheese and bacon burgers at Slider Bar, Basil enjoyed a feast of his own with a bottle of Snuffle Beer for dogs and a plate of play courtesy of The Artisan Pet Deli, who have just added the most fun range of hand-knitted fast food toys for dogs to their range.
Open from 5pm til late every Thursday to Saturday, dogs are welcome but I’d suggest that you go for the first few hours opening then leave, as it gets very busy and loud. Slider Bar @ Dinerama is located at 9 Great Eastern Street, EC2A 3EJ. Check out what’s on the menu at Streetfeastlondon.com and scroll to the end of the post for the links for Basil’s WEAR, DRINK & PLAY.
