She's Lost Control

If you’re an enthusiast for crystals, wellness, astrology or tarot reading then this one's for you! What we love about She's Lost Control is that they offer a shopping sanctuary experience as well as everything from reiki, tarot, private readings and events with resident guides.

Studio Anatomy

Not only do we love the décor of their space but they have customized lessons by their amazing trainers, who will inspire you with activities that will revitalize both your body and mind. They provide dynamic, total-body workout and combined Pilates centered to reformer machines. Whichever class you choose, you'll leave the studio with strength and confidence.

We have a current obsession with Bambrows as does the rest of London who travel to experience the expert bam team. You'll leave feeling like the best version of yourself!

To make things even better Bambrows hosts a number of collaborative events and workshops to encourage the channelling of inner beauty and confidence.

Cafe Cecilia 

The fashion set’s place for lunch! Cafe Cecilia overlooks Regent’s Canal in East London. Started by Max Rocha from River Cafe and Spring, his father, the designer John Rocha, consulted on the minimalist interior, and his sister, the fashion designer Simone Rocha, created the staff’s outfits. It's the perfect place for breakfast before heading up Broadway Market on the weekend!

House of Sunny 

In need of a colourful outfit? House of Sunny is an independent womenswear brand that acts against fast fashion. What we love about the brand is they produce small quantities of 2 seasonal collections a year whilst bringing out quality garments that are a staple and add a pop of color to your wardrobe. We love brands that are on a journey towards a conscious environment in what we wear.

Bistrotheque Restaurant

The perfect cool and chic French-inspired place to end your night with!

What Rites love about Bistrotheque is it offers a variety of dining experiences on each floor and time during the day. From an early brunch setting to easy elegance an easy elegance upstairs. It's one of our favourite places for a cocktail!

Haeckels skincare

Need a facial glow for summer? We adore Haeckels skincare as they use seaweed as their main ingredient (with essential vitamins, minerals, and amino acids) to help regenerate skin. Who wouldn't want to save the planet whilst looking glowing for the summer!
