Joan Murphy – Instructor, Frame
How do you like to start your day?
I’m definitely an early riser! I like to I get up early, have some quality time with my son over breakfast, get to Frame and do a morning class, then I’m ready and raring to go by 7:30/8am.
What does your morning look like?
Exactly like that usually! Once in work, my mornings are usually pretty full on with Frame meetings back to back and various exciting projects on the go at the moment. I make sure I stay fuelled up at the Frame cafe with Fuel Bowls, Karma cans and matcha lattes!
Where do you like to go for lunch?
The Albion of course! Also Shoreditch House or the Hoxton Hotel. There are so many lovely cafes and restaurants, it’s hard to choose!
What’s your favourite part of Shoreditch?
Ooh that’s a tough one…. Depends what day it is and how I’m feeling, but I do love being in Shoreditch House on a Sunday swimming with my son, or Hoxton Square. My favourite thing about Shoreditch is it’s ever evolving nature, so you constantly stumble upon a new place you haven’t discovered or a new pop up almost every day!
What one place is a mustsee/do for you?
Well… If you haven’t managed to get yourself to Frame yet, then I’d definitely recommend that! But I’m supposed to say that aren’t I.
Where would you go for a drink after work?
Callooh Callay is a great kooky bar for an after work cocktail. Princess of Shoreditch, Bike Shed Motorcycle Club, The Owl and the Pussycat. The list of funky bars in Shoreditch is just endless – I would simply recommend getting out there and finding them all! Take a turn down a side street and you’re sure to find one.
Where would you go for dinner?
Oklava’s lovely. Andina, Busaba Eathai, Dishoom, Boundary, or if you’re being really naughty….Pizza East!
Anything late-night that you like?
The Blues Kitchen is quite fun of an evening. Especially for a boogie!
