Birthdays in Dalston is a basement bar and music venue that's built up a reputation for hosting the hottest up-and-coming DJs and live bands.
Spread over two floors with a powerful sound system and stage, it's hosted events for Vice and All Tomorrow's Parties, and live shows by everyone from Chvrches to Skepta. Entry to the bar is free but there is often a door charge for happenings in the lower level live space.
The food offer is provided by vendors in rotating residence (previous tenants have included Lucky Chip and Coqfighter). The drinks menu covers simple cocktails alongside bottled beers by the bottle and wine.
