Dalston Eastern Curve Garden
Once a deserted space in a built-up and hectic area, this plot has been redesigned into an attractive, cleverly planted, and beautifully nurtured garden, a triangular space which backs down to the railway line. The garden is fully enclosed and has an outdoor cafe, so you can sit with a coffee and let the kids run off, knowing they can’t get out. They have decided to leave one play area natural at the end of the garden, with bendy overgrown shrubs kids love to climb through and a wet, muddy area for splashing in Wellington boots.
A lovely community garden set up to make up for the lack of green space in the immediate area. Free to visit and they sometimes host events in the evening or weekends. Stop by to sit in the garden and enjoy a coffee or a drink (alcoholic or non-alcoholic) or a pizza on weekends.
It's a public garden that sells coffee, beer and pizza. Sometimes you can find DJs playing.
If you come here on the summer, this large garden is a great place to relax in the area!
A secret community garden hidden behind buildings. They do amazing pizzas and often have live music. I would highly recommend a visit.
Magical garden and cafe by day, loved by families: enjoy the log burner and a sofa in the greenhouse. At night the lanterns come out and it turns into a fairyland garden and bar. Good in summer and in winter you will need to dress warm, and they may have a blanket to lend you. Don't miss it..…
“The Arcola Theatre always puts on amazing shows. It also has a casual bar that sometimes has live jazz or other music playing later on the weekends. This theatre is a must visit for anyone interested in theatre. Shows are usually quite thought provoking and at times challenging.”
“LUNCH/ DINNER This is one of my favourite spots. They offer great salads, vegetarian options as well as meat dishes and wine.”
“Live gig venue, avnte garde jazz punk and other crazy stuff, get there with 277 bus to Dalston”
“A great (but smallish) indie cinema in Dalston with plenty of history and a fab art deco architecture.”
