The Victoria is a friendly Dalston local famed for its live music programme. Located within a short stroll of Dalston Junction and Hackney Downs, the venue has been hosting memorable gigs for years on end, and is part of the very fabric of East London’s musical scene.

These days, the venue is owned and operated by Jaguar Shoes – the East London art collective –who have taken great steps to rejuvenate the pub area too. A stunning 50s bar island takes centre stage, where guests gather to sample a fine array of classic cocktails, locally brewed beers and continental wines. The Vic frequently shuffles the pack in the kitchen, with guest chefs taking temporary residencies to offer something different upon every visit.

A traditional pillar of Dalston’s social scene, The Victoria is a friendly and accommodating boozer which retains its prestige as one of the area’s best places to catch a gig.

Make sure to check out The Victoria's sister venues Dream Bags Jaguar Shoes and Hand of Glory.
