The Golden Heart Pub

4

The Golden Heart pub - where the East London hipsters gather for some people watching and basically just to chill out and relax.

The Golden Heart Pub has been run by the same landlady – Sandra Esqulant, for 30 years now. It’s a Truman Brewery Pub in the heart of the Shoreditch/Brick Lane/Spitalfields trendy east London area. Popular with hipsters, fashionistas and artists, especially the Brit Art crowd such as Tracy Emin and Gilbert & George.
Bohemian crowd, in other words.

Perfect for ‘hanging out’ on Sundays when the Brick Lane Market is happening. It’s the place to see and be seen. Conveniently situated in front of the Lomography East store, All Saints fashion mecca and few vintage retro shows. Who needs fashion week when this crossroad is like a podium?:)

Service may not be the fastest and the music is usually awful, but that’s not why you go there. It’s all about soaking up the atmosphere of the place and doing some fun people watching. And, occasionally jumping on the tables to the tune of Single Ladies.:) They always have fresh flowers, from tulips to orchids, and a neon heart and a cupid in the window (a magnet for Lomographers).

110 Commercial Street
London, E1 6LZ
On the corner of Hanbury Street and Commercial Street, opposite Old Spitalfields Market.

    Solar Eclipses and Beyond

    The skies were busy with magic today — or maybe it was just the solar eclipse that caused all that ruckus? Decked out in space-age goggles and other various sun viewing paraphernalia, groups of people gathered as the moon moved between the sun and the earth this morning across Europe. Only a few lucky folks witnessed the total eclipse, and here at Vienna HQ, the greatest moment of the partial eclipse happened at 10:45 A.M. and lasted only a few minutes. We stopped everything we were doing to join the sky watchers crew and share in this astonishing moment. Check out these brilliant solar-inspired shots to celebrate the occasion!
