This Kingsland High Street hang out is a bit of a face on the east London party scene. In true Dalston style it's home to all sorts: popular with a large and diverse LGBT crowd, but welcoming to all and everyone. DJs – mostly local, many well-known – keep feet dancing with sets from Wednesday through to Sunday. Music-wise, you can groove and grind to anything from White Leather Viper Club's weekly Wednesday instalment of electro and mutant-pop, to Italo and disco at Discosodoma, to '90s R&B and hip hop at Put It In Your Mouth.
There's also variety on the drinks list. Seven draught beers and ciders include Brooklyn Lager, Frontier, Kirin Ichiban, Guinness and Estrella, complemented by 18 bottles (Punk IPA, Sierra Nevada, Sol, Peroni, Anchor Steam to name a few), as well as a few guest beers on rotation. Classic cocktails feature alongside house concoctions, shooters and jugs of Pimms and Sangria.
Alongside weekly specials the seasonal menu features dishes such as chicken burgers, minute steak buns, chickpea and potato dahls and pan-fried king prawns served with a tomato, lime, chilli, paprika, avocado and mango salad. Cabaret brunches also prove popular.
Keep an eye out for student drink offers and queer art exhibitions, too.
