91 Brick Ln., London, England E1 6QL, United Kingdom

Old Truman Brewery here takes its name from a family who started making ales in the late 1600’s. Today, the brewery building is home to almost 200 independent creative companies. It’s connected to Brick Lane by a small pedestrian alley called Dray Walk, over which the brewery towers, and along which the best of Brick Lane’s energy can be experienced: food stands peddle izakaya-style snacks, dosas, empanadas, kebabs and dolma, and eye-watering Goan curries. Small fashion traders with provocatively arcane names (Son of a Stag; A Butcher of Distinction; Public Beware Co.) enjoy fiercely loyal local followings. In and around Brick Lane are multiple markets, including the storied one in adjacent Spitalfields; Thursday, not Sunday, is the connoisseur’s day for antiques.

The Old Truman Brewery, once home to London’s largest brewery, is now East London’s primary destination point for the public and creative businesses alike. Eleven years of sensitive regeneration and investment has transformed over ten acres of derelict buildings into spectacular office, retail, leisure, exhibition and event spaces.
