We're a friendly, bar in the middle of Ridley Road market Dalston.
We're perfect for a cosy glass of wine in the week, or a get together with friends at the weekend.
In normal times we have programming which includes Live Music, DJs, Screenings, Literary Readings and our long running Culture Power and Politics Lecture Series. These events are usually free of charge. Due to Covid restrictions our programming is currently on hold, but we are open late Thursday to Saturday.
Part tropical bar, part cultural hub, part apres ski lodge, we'll never turn you away for wearing the wrong shoes.
Tuesday: 6pm - 1am
Wednesday/Thursday: 6pm - 2am
Friday/Saturday: 6pm - 3am
Sunday: 5pm - 12am
Book your table to guarantee a base for your night out with friends!
We have a fabulous new food residency Double Standard Dumplings. They serve handmade Taiwanese dumplings and sides Weds-Sun from 6pm until they sell out. Vegan options are available!
IMPORTANT - By submitting this booking you are acknowledging our Booking and Covid policies (please find our Covid policy above) and are taking on the responsibility to share this information with the rest of your group.
We currently don’t charge a deposit for bookings and would love to avoid this! So to help us keep bookings free we ask that all guests arrive within 15 minutes of your booking time and to let us know with as much warning as possible if you’d like to cancel the booking. Please be kind to our staff if not all of your party has arrived and we need to release your table to someone else.
The tables seat up to 12 people each and we can take bookings for up to 30 - just drop us an email so we can make sure you're all together!
The outdoor area is open until 10.45pm for al-fresco good times.
Please note, booking an outside space does not guarantee entry to the inside area. Saying this, you should be able to see how busy the bar is getting and head in before it fills up if you are looking to stay with us all night and grab a spot on the dancefloor!
We operate a first-come, first-served door policy with no guestlist. This means if there is a queue in place, anyone arriving later than their booked time will need to join this to enter. Unfortunately we don’t offer pass-outs, so if you leave the venue on a busy night you may need to join a queue to come back in.
Minimum table bookings for indoors are for 12 people.
The table won't seat everyone, but will be a great base for what we hope will be a LOT OF DANCING and MINGLING!!! Your guests will be welcome to use our unreserved seating areas also.
