Farr’s School of Dancing


SquareMeal Review of Farr’s School of Dancing

The latest addition to a pub-chain portfolio that already includes Balham Bowls Club, Deptford Job Centre and the like, Farr’s is another quirkily reinvented space now given over to boozing. The building was Dalston’s dance academy in the late 1930s – although the grungy, recycled decor also plunders the 1960s in the shape of leatherette chairs with salvaged hood hairdryers. Even today’s austerity-hit pockets will stretch to an accessible wine selection that has drinkable rosé at under £14; otherwise, eschew Euro industrial lagers in favour of locally brewed craft beers and the likes of Adnams Single Shells or Californian Anchor Steam on tap. London gins and cocktails such as mint julep should get you into Strictly samba mode during live DJ sets. There’s also talk of a basement speakeasy, as well as an upstairs dining area and kitchen serving comfort food.
