Passing Clouds

Also in Dalston, funk up your weekends listening to bands with a message. This venue is run by locals who don’t make a profit, simply providing a service to the community, giving a platform to art. Good work.

Big Chill House

Dub, reggae, house, drum n bass, r’n’b – whatever your taste, there’s something for you at this King’s Cross venue. Housed inside a huge Victorian Pub, it’s open during the day for breakfast, lunch and cocktails.
