Fodor's Review

The last East End brewery still standing—a handsome example of Georgian and 19th-century industrial architecture, and in late Victorian times the largest brewery in the world—has been transformed into a cavernous hipster mall housing galleries, record shops, fashion-forward boutiques, bars, clubs, and restaurants, along with an array of international street-food vendors. The retailers are at street level with offices and studios on the upper floors. Events include fashion shows for both new and established designers, excellent sample sales, art installations, and, on weekends, a food hall and a vintage clothes fair. Truman's Brewery itself, shut down in 1989 but has risen from the ashes in recent years. Its new location out in Hackney Wick is open for brewery tours (6:30 pm Thursday and 2 pm on Saturday).
