The Shacklewell Arms


The Shacklewell Arms is a pub and live music venue in Dalston, a short walk from Dalston Kingsland Overground Station. It's split into three different spaces: a classic and cosy British pub, a covered and heated courtyard with a smoking area, and a back room with a stage and dance floor for live music events. While the pub area is 100% traditional, the back garden has a Brazilian-kiosk theme with a vintage taste: the overall dècor matches the young, trendy and local clientele. The garden/smoking area, being spacious and heated, is a big bonus.

Live music acts are hosted throughout the week while DJ nights are pumping on weekends. Music can vary from acoustic, rock, alternative to house, electronica and experimental: while the music changes, the quality stays high.

Whether you want to hang out and have a couple of pints or you want to get drunk and dance all night, The Shacklewell Arms will meet all your needs.
