sick, always... Been heading there for random Friday and Saturday nights for the last two years, never disappoints. The line ups are always pretty sick even on the quieter nights and the vibe is on the money. had a good one with ivan smagghe over the weekend

With Bardens Boudoir now just a distant memory, The Nest has firmly established itself as a Dalston clubbing heavyweight since it opened in October 2010. The club boasts an industrial chic look and (mercifully) more salubrious toilets than its former incarnation, but the music programme remains the same. 'We will strive to showcase the very best in new, fresh, cutting-edge talent,' the organisers claim. 'We are not interested in promoting acts that have 'made it'; we want to promote acts that will make it.' They seem to be holding hard to their stated intent. Weekly nights like Lemonade and Your Mum's House shout out the club's hip electro and disco credentials and a solid programme of international, alternative DJs make this an even more appealing venue in which to nest-up for the night.
What's on at The Nest
Clubs, Hip hop
Fiery rapper Ms Dy-na-mi-tee – a Mercury Prize winner from back in the day – shows off her sharp-tongued skills with a mix of hip hop and a dash of grime attitude. Shorebitch DJs give support.
House, techno and electro, Disco, Clubs, Garage, Grime, Hip hop
- Critics' choice
Having risen to prominence purely through his heavyweight DJ skills, Oneman is perfectly placed to nail a killer DJ set on any given day. So when that day happens to be New Year's Eve, a surefire belter of a club night is guaranteed. With musical knowledge...

best club in dalston by far! went there last weekend, the music was sick and the club was packed. amazing line-ups. also, this is one of those dark'n'dirty clubs we all love
The best club in East London by far!! Best sound system, DJs and crowd. Left uni two years ago, wish it had been there back then!!! Looking forward to a lot more dancing this weekend....
I have been coming to The Nest for a while now - and it's by far my guilty pleasure! Having seen some TOP line up's, I have also been able to discover some new music and follow some new talent. Gasaffelstein completely blew my mind last Friday - he really tore the club apart - and the atmosphere was electric. I had never really heard of him - and now I can't wait to next see him play. Big thanks to The Nest for arriving on the scene - My Friday nights are now more entertaining.
Went down for Stop.Drop.Roll on Friday, Benji B Brackles and Deadboy killed it! Cool venue, nice sound, suuuuuuuuuuper dark. Loads of sick line-ups coming up.
Dope venue headed down for Russ Yallop, sound was ace, lets hope they keep up their great booking policy!
