Shoreditch den-of-cool Village Underground is so East London it hurts, but it works. Under a viaduct, nestled among huge railway arches, this venue houses exhibitions, concerts, club-nights and an entire creative community. Four recycled graffiti-covered Jubilee Line carriages perch on the roof as artists studios. The immense space, high ceilings and exposed brick walls make you feel like you're in a warehouse in Brooklyn, or an aircraft hangar. Expect a swarm of hipsters, but expect to be impressed: this venue only pulls in exciting, emerging talent.
