A derelict public lavatory next to Bethnal Green tube station has undergone the most amazing makeover, thanks to local lad Alex Dehayan. The rather forlorn site has been transformed into a laid-back, beach-style bar and restaurant called Chiringuito, named after the Spanish equivalents that adorn the country’s coastline. Aptly enough, tapas and snacks will be on offer, alongside all manner of refreshing drinks. Check out the rooftop terrace, with amazing views of the Museum Gardens, with its iconic church and park.
