A good place to go if you're with a couple of your friends and you just want to drink and dance to some good house music and not have to dress up. But the lights are dim and its very hot and sticky, so wouldn't recommend if you're looking for a typical club night with music you can sing along to and take lots of pics of you and your mates looking fab, because it ain't gonna happen. Would definitely recommend if you love house music and trainers though.

Had a great time here this past weekend! Booked a table for Kornel Kovacs - was the perfect warm up for the night.. bar/door staff was awesome. sound system was surprsingly good. dance floor was nice and sweaty, everyone was dancing and having a good time.

You have got to be kidding me??? Who is giving this place 4 or 5 stars??? The owner's friends? It is the absolute pits! If people from New York and Amsterdam came and saw this, they would laugh at us daring to call it a club. Its a damp, musty, shitehole with marginally good music. Full of people spending their weekly dole. Avoid at all costs! (Can I give this no stars?)

I had a great night with relatively well priced drink prices. The queue was a little long however. I would recommend for a decent night. I prefer music at xoyo however

Had such a good night here. The student night on thursdays (i think it's your mum's house) is so worth it and definitely worth going a little earlier to avoid queues

Boddika smashed this place a couple of weeks ago.. The Nest and xoyo guys are doing really well, line-ups are massive all the time. I prefer The Nest though, it's more intimate and cosy than xoyo.

Really nice underground club: bar staff is all right, music and crowd are good. Good place to go to if you're in Dalston.

I always go there when i'm in Dalston - entry fee is really good and DJs are sooo goood. It closes at 4am as well, which is not bad.

One of Dalstons finest clubs, open late and they get really good DJ's too!

Such a great place because they book wicked DJs. That's what it's all about here. It's a bit small but the bar is long and your attention is turned to the DJ decks anyways.

one of the leaders of the dalston club scene, it gets great djs and has a good raw, fabric feel but its too narrow for me, needs a bit more space.
