Good morning to all our international students and volunteers! Here is the sixth tip on how to make the most of your time in London. Whether you are going to come over to London to attend our Learn English through Drama summer course in July and August or to do a volunteer work experience in London, I would like to dedicate this post to all Vintage lovers: shop cool vintage clothes and take Boogie lessons!
This is the sixth one of a series of posts about how to make the most of your stay in London after the English speaking course for learning English through drama or after volunteering in charity shops.
East London is popular for its vintage shops and boutiques. If you are a Vintage lover (or addicted!) this is a must visit. Take a tour in Shoreditch and pop in the dozens of vintage shops, then put some comfortable shoes on and spend your evening at Paper Dress Vintage. Paper Dress Vintage is a magic place where you can play with vintage clothes, shop and take Boogie and Swing dance lessons in the evening. Lots of fun guaranteed!
Paper Dress Vintage
Shop by day and bar by night, Paper Dress transforms from vintage boutique to live music and events space within a matter of minutes! We are now spread over 2 levels with a special events space upstairs suitable for live music, art events, private hire and dance classes! And we have an outside garden / smoking area – woo hoo!
Alongside regular live music shows, we host a wide variety of events including comedy, burlesque, book launches, fashion shows, cabaret, musical bingo, fashion illustration and jive dancing classes! All the while the bar dishes out delicious craft beers and tasty cocktails.
Paper Dress stocks a variety of vintage garments sourced from the UK from 1900-80’s. Each decade has had styles, shapes, and fabrics influenced by science, stars and political happenings, defining what people wore.
