A decent little live venue in East London, and one that is starting to get a few decent bands in.

I saw The Asteroid # 4 last week and had a thoroughly good time. The place itself is unassuming but the staff are welcoming and efficient, and there's an Ok selection of draught beers although they could do with a couple more specialist bottles. It's not cheap I should add - £4 a pint for...more

Dirty, grimy and a little bit rough sums this bar nicely although as with many up and coming Dalston bars, mixes the trash of Dalston with the Bohemia of Brick Lane. Open late nights, with friendly bouncers and scary looking bar staff who serve mean shooters and rarely smile. Electro lovers prick your ears up now, as this is the new monthly home of the Replicants, bringing a deluge of dirty...more
