While in London earlier this year I ventured out to Shoreditch an up-and-coming area to see what Boxpark is all about. The pop-up mall is constructed of stripped and refitted shipping containers and is oh so cool. It houses a mix of shops, restaurants and galleries and show cases well known brands along side other more quirky ones. We were there during the day but I would like to go back for drinks or dinner as the vibe was great. The mall is a short walk from Liverpool Street Station and has a lit bicycle rack which is under 24/7 CCTV surveillance if cycling is your thing.
Boxpark will opening in Croydon in 2016 and will be constructed from the same materials but will have 80 units and a covered courtyard.
