Accessed down the same dodgy staircase, Tom Gibson’s conjoined late-night dive bars are bang on the Dalston dollar. Turn left to find a Peaky Blinder-era, peeling parlour: a sweet snug where deftly made cocktails include anything from daft, ironic Snowballs (advocaat and lemonade) to spot-on Sipsmith Gibsons. Turn right for a larger, booth-lined, party pit where the focus is on craft beers, European wines (from Clapton oenophiles Verden), and street-food residencies such as Hanoi Kitchen, purveyors of soft-shell crab or char-grilled lemongrass grilled lamb chops. Launched in early 2016, this newer room’s low-rent 1966 working men’s club vibe (complete with bingo apparatus, a stage for live music, and DJs dropping eclectic beats on a kick-ass system at weekends) pays homage to sadly no-more Mecca dance hall, The Tottenham Royal, where Gibson’s grandparents twisted to early Beatles’ songs. Here in Dalston, anticipate A Hard Day’s Night at Tom’s fun new hangout.
