Shoreditch Grind

Shoreditch Grind

The first of the growing Grind Empire, the Shoreditch Grind, is now known for its industrial exposed-piping-brick-meets-wood esthetic, lethal espresso-based cocktails and music loud enough to mask the sound of sirens from Old Street roundabout. Serving their own coffee, pastries and light salads, the Shoreditch Grind draws in the Silicon Roundabout’s startup trail blazers desperate for something better than the high street chains. With the addition of an upstairs recording studio, you’ll find plenty of musician-types hanging around the bar injecting some much needed cool into Old Street’s grey roundabout.
