Dalston free parties arrive

Fancy checking out three hours from the legendary Swayzak, without paying a penny? How about Brennan Green of China Town Records, and Rekids’ Toby Tobias?

If the answer is yes then we’ve got some good news. You can. Better yet, it can be done in under 48 hours. From March 4th -5th (or, technically, 3am on the 6th), discerning revellers the capital over will be donning party frocks and suitable shoes before heading to Dalston for a free weekend in London’s newest venue, Bar A Bar. Please note- you will need to buy a drink…

There’s the increasingly-expected Funktion One soundsystem on-site, and affordable cocktails. But perhaps most appealing is the DJ booth designed for vinyl (complete with three decks and rotary mixer as standard), coupled with the promise of a ‘seedy look and feel’ that should sit in contrast to the usual contemporary interior design ethic.

The crew behind the opening have been responsible for a number of parties in the city, with this the beginning of what should be a more regular events calendar. Coinciding with the opening BAB Radio will launch online, more details of which can be found here. Full line-ups, and the usual information below…
