Tucked beneath a men's salon on Stoke Newington Road, and noticeable only by a signpost emblazoned with their signature facial hair, The Moustache Bar offers straightforward fun in an area that is so often criticised for being a bit too trendy. After walking past and catching a glimmer of what lies behind…
The Moustache Bar
Given away only by a small moustache sign hanging outside, The Moustache Bar is a small, stripped back basement club that lacks the pretentiousness of some of the surrounding Dalston clubs.
Inside, you're likely to be greeted by a young crowd squeezed tightly into an area about the size of an average front room. However, what The Moustache Bar lacks in size, it certainly makes up for in its cheap drinks and friendly atmosphere. It's not trying to match the size and grandeur of the best London basement bars but instead focuses on creating an individual and warm atmosphere as seen through its battered sofas and walls scattered with postcards and Elvis posters.
The music is normally a mash up of indie, house and a few classic party tunes making it a lot more accessible than many of the Dalston bars. Best of all, entry is often free!
