Sandwiched between Shoreditch and Stoke Newington, Dalston echoes what Brixton once was. It’s a high-energy East London hub balancing the old with the new, tradition with innovation, Turkish eateries and hammams with ferment-focused restaurants and board game cafes. It’s the kind of place young people coo at, whilst the older generation sit scrunch-faced, wondering why anyone would put a disco ball in the toilet. It wakes up early and goes to sleep late (if at all). There’s jazz bars and gay bars and market bars. The bar has been set high, and it doesn’t look to be coming down any time soon.
