Arcola Theatre Bar – Dalston
So since it was a nice sunny Saturday we thought that we would go for a drink in Dalston or De Beauvoir Town then maybe get some dinner. Could we hell. These days don’t even bother going out on a Saturday night around these parts unless you have made a reservation. We tried to get into one pub and actually got turned away, everywhere was so insanely busy. We couldn’t even find a place to stand let alone get a seat. We tried about 5 different pubs! So what was meant to be a nice relaxed evening out was turning into a giant waste of time. Well thank god for the Cafe Arcola Theatre bar. What a nice little haven of tranquility. When we turned up it was curiously empty. That we discovered was the key, get there during performances as in the intervals it turns into the most happening spot around where you can barely move. So it all turned out quite well as for some of the time we were there it was fun and busy then when the production resumed we would have some quiet respite on a comfy sofa.
