One day, three posts…

Thus, onwards through Spitalfields and onto Shoreditch, via the Ten Bells pub and the Hawksmoor designed Christ Church. Many a vintage store dropped into. A number of boots tried on, but un-purchased. Then, to the pub that claims to stock thousands of comics on its shelves, the Far Rockaway.

I have to admit, when Matt broached the idea of the comics pub that served pizza, I was a little skeptical. I knew it would be Emmet’s cup of tea, but I was worried it might not be mine. Given I get to come back to London next month, though, I obliged. Turns out, this is the awesomest place! The whole place oozes a rose coloured 1990s, from the pop art skateboards under the bar and along the roof, the Pearl Jam (and others) posters on the walls, the odd sculptures in the corners, the aforementioned wall of comics, and the music pumping through the speakers. The food’s not bad too, although tonight there was no pizza.

If you have any affection for the 90s, go here. Or, just go here anyway.
