[MAP]

Another Dalston basement bar, although this one is slightly less sweaty and grubby than many of the others. The Nest is particularly good for live music - club nights often incorporate live PAs - and boasts a better sound system than most spots on the Strip (as this slice of Dalston is unironically known).

As recommended by Sharmadean Reid.
