Notable Businesses: Street Feast, WAH Nails, The Alibi, Dalston Superstore
Dalston is a district in northeast London that was rural until the 18th and 19th centuries. A recent gentrification boom has led to a spike in the cost of living, and Kingsland Road and the surrounding streets are where to go to find restaurants and cafés. Dalston has its own music magazine (The Pix) and its nightlife is blessed by pop-up club nights at the bars of yesteryear. Plus, Street Feast—a cool guy foodie's heaven—happens in Dalston. This East London neighborhood's cool is effortless; never forced down your throat and nobody is trying too hard.
