Refitted shipping containers plonked artfully underneath the elevated Shoreditch High Street Overground station make up this contemporary shopping and eating mall. Installed in late 2011, Boxpark is founded by Boxfresh entrepreneur Roger Wade who, with developers Hammerson and Ballymore, has filled the mall with labels such as Evisu, Wandering Minds and Scandi-inspired fashion stores Swedish Hasbeens and Nordic Poetry plus unique jewelry from Astrid & Miyu and food and drink outfits Voodoo Ray's, Falafelicious and Poptata.
Taking up a small corner of The Goodsyard, a 4.7-hectare site running alongside Bethnal Green Road, it seems Boxpark is the first of a series of developments on the former wasteland that could see up to 2000 new homes, office and retail space and leisure facilities.
One of Boxpark’s most charming quirks is its fresh take on the shopping and dining model. Customers are invited to enjoy the convenience and comfort of accessing a variety of restaurants and shops, both familiar brands and independent ventures, all in one place.
Current stores include, the iconic British amp manufacturer, Marshall; boutique home and garden store, Decorum and creative perfume house, Diptyque.
Fancy whetting your whistle or chowing down on a choice of gourmet or street style food? Then you’re spoilt for choice. Boxpark Shoreditch is currently the home of Bukowski and their mean burgers, dirty fries and delicious grill servings. Or, how about a Caribbean twist? Cottons Rhum Shack delivers the authentic bar shack experience with the flavours of a modern Caribbean menu, topped off with a crazy selection of delicious rum-based cocktails. And for those of you with a sweet tooth, there’s Dum Dums Donutterie – their donuts are baked, not fried, meaning you can ‘have your donut and eat it’ and feel a little less guilty for doing so.

Such a neat idea! I popped in with a friend to grab some food, and it's so nice that you can get food from different places and eat together- no more debates! The atmosphere was very electric, an excited buzz of conversation all around. I really think this kind of venue could definitely have a future in London. I ate from CookDaily, which I thought was great value, and really delicious. While waiting for my friend, I also had a little mooch around the shops- there is some really interesting stock on offer, and one shop's (I can't remember which) owner brings his dog to work, which is a win anywhere, in my book.
