Why locals love it
As the typical High Street strip loses it's appeal for a night out, its alcoves like Hoxton Square that offer a fresh alternative of grouped night spots and eateries. The busyness of the main road is replaced with music and laughter, creating an atmosphere befitting a night in East London.
Why you should visit it
During the day the park at the Square's centre softens the views of the surrounding venues but it's at night when Hoxton Square comes to life. Summer nights see patrons socializing outdoors which gives a great sense of community to the Square as a whole.
My pick is Hoxton Bar and Kitchen, great interior with plenty of space.
