The Jamboree 

'Awesome little venue, former little theatre, part of a little coop of artists who have their little studios in the building: it's a nice little place for small bands, quite cheap as well. Head there in the evening and you might catch a lively klezmer jam, a raucous night of flamenco music and dancing, or a mellow night of melancholic English folk ballads by candlelight.'

Ridley Road Market Bar

Medium-sized 60's Americana-feel bar. Packed out with absurdly (well-)dressed Dalstonites. It's great for people watching and a nice - if slightly pricy - cocktail and pizza. There is a small dance floor and they play great music to shuffle to, although I'd recommend going on a weekday night (not Fri/Sat). 

Also they pay their staff living wage. 

Address: 49 Ridley Road, E8

The Clapton Hart  

The Clapton Hart is a friendly and lively pub that has become a firm community favourite with a grand aesthetic true to its history. The pub is host to a range of craft beers and real ales from East London microbreweries and around the world. Alongside a range of hearty meals (they do a mean Sunday roast!), the Hart has a resident DJ every Friday for late night drinking and dancing. On a sunny day, the large beer garden is not to be missed!

Address: 231 Lower Clapton Road, E5 8EG
