This subterranean spot on Stoke Newington Road is all about the party. There's pedigree, too - the tunes usually come from local crews with ties to the music industry. Expect, then, the odd special guest or two - Friendly Fires, Gorgon City, Artwork, Dusky and Bicep have all taken to the Tipsy turntables for unannounced sets at their friends parties. A top-notch Martin Audio soundsystem provides the hardware.
The vast majority of the weekend parties are free entry, too - plus cocktails are a fiver before 11.30pm. Still not enough? There are Cuban salsa classes each week, as well as comedy nights, LGBT poetry nights and other special events - it's probably best to just keep an eye on the website for what they're up to next. And if you want to play yourself? They'll happily hear your demos.
If you get hungry you can head upstairs - Tipsy's right below Escudo de Cuba, a Cuban restaurant and cocktail bar.
A hidden cave of spaced-out vintage and big-top styled decor awaits you for a variety of parties brought to you by local promoters, DJs and crews.
Expect house party vibes every weekend on a high-spec Martin Audio soundsystem!
Anything from funk, soul, '90s R 'n' B, hip hop, disco, house, techno and everything and anything in between. Plus, if you're lucky the odd special unannounced guest may swing by.
Open until 3am (and occasionally later) on weekends and the majority of the time it's free entry.
Wednesdays we host salsa classes and fortnightly on Thursdays we bring you east London's best free comedy club, 'Joking Aside', featuring top TV comedy talent supported by local and national comedians.
Also available and open to local DJs, bands, promoters and general party people who are interested in putting on events. Get in touch if you are keen to hold a party of any kind x
