East London's creative corner

Busy Dalston is centred on Kingsland Road — a place where old London meets new. Cocktail bars are squeezed alongside charity shops while the stalls of Ridley Road Market sell produce, African textiles and any household goods you can imagine.

Pirate HQ used to be in Dalston, so the team has a lot of opinions about the area. 

If your stomach is rumbling we love Rainbow Bakery, Dusty Knuckle, the iconic Andù Cafe for vegan Ethiopian food. For a cheap eat, choose any Turkish restaurant (we particularly rate Evin) or queue for Nepalese dumplings at House of Momo.

There is a wide array of cafés in the area. For the discerning — pick from KHP Social, Dalston Curve Garden, Allpress roastery or Café Route

After dark, head to the Dalston Roof Garden, Farr's School of Dancing, The Haggerston, Brilliant Corners, Pamela's, The Glory and Dalston Superstore.
