The Nest is an edgy and intimate, 350 capacity basement in Dalston, donning industrial exposed pipes, concrete floors and walls, and retro neon porn signs. Reminiscent of the vault in Berlin’s colossus Tresor night club, the atmosphere did not disappoint and nor did the music. The bouncers were friendly; the drink prices were reasonable ranging from £3.50 for a bottle of beer to £7.00 for a cocktail, and the pretentious vibe you might expect from bars in surrounding areas was left at the door.

On our visit, the DJ was banging out a mix-up of classic 2step, Dubstep and old school Garage; however the music can vary considerably given the venue aims to showcase new talent. It is worth keeping an eye on the line ups because The Nest hosts some prolific club nights from MTA Records parties for all bass enthusiasts, to Lemonade on Saturday nights presenting a range of live music and upcoming DJ’s.  

[For all the tech savvy’s The Nest has a pretty sweet Martin Audio sound system.]

Free before 10:30 pm, and £5.00 thereafter this is more than a reasonable entry price for an East London club.  

Well worth a visit. {4/5 Bass Ratings}
