No.1 Baltic Place - What To Do

No.1 is locatied on Kingsland Rd, equidistant from Shoreditch and Dalston, right inbetwen two of the most exciting cultural hubs in east London. Over the years we have seen the area slowly change from a derelict ghost town into a thriving epicentre of fashion and nightlife.

Here is a selection of the best bars and restaurants in the area, along with suggestions of nice things to do...
