A two-floored trash palace, curated to perfection and always boasting some of London's best underground DJs, Dalston Superstore is simply super.
The camp, New York-styled ersatz dive bar upstairs (clad in cement, brick and steel vents) is the perfect place for a chat 'n' carouse. There's a healthy selection of bottled beers, a brief cocktail list plus substantial burgers, sandwiches, salads to choose from. There's also the odd pop-up residency –we are in Dalston after all.
Downstairs however is where the real meat is. A perfect dedicated dance space, with a killer system and lights-turned-low, it's a gem of a dancefloor –put to good use by its myriad of ace promoters.

I've used to go there for breakfast after a night out, but after the recent renovation I might have found a better breakfast place just a few doors up the road. The new menu sounds better than actually is, their scrambled eggs was horrible and didn't even taste like eggs at all, my friend had the goats cheese dish and could not even finish it. Will not come back
great music and a fun mix of people. not at all "campy" as claimed in the description, but definitely hipster-fashionista (but in a fun way, not pretentious). went on a saturday, and the place was packed. But the venue is really narrow, so people are always carving a path through the dance floor (lots of spilled drinks) and trying to maneuver around the bar upstairs was at times impossible. That is the biggest drawback. They also ran out of room in the coat check by 1 am, so I would suggest getting there early. There was a line by 2 am (surely they were already over capacity). Four stars for the good vibes and great DJ, but the venue itself leaves much to be desired.
