Cocktail-cooking bar by night, muffin-toasting cafe by day: The Book Club in Shoreditch offers London's "Silicon Roundabout" workers a place to work and a place play. For work, it's a fine place for an informal meeting: music isn't too loud, coffee is good, and you can stay on for lunch. Wifi is free and fast, and if you need to plug in, here's a tip for you: as you walk in, take the furthest-corner seat by the window in the second half of the divided main room. There's a power socket right by your feet and a view of the street by your table.
