Additional Location Information
ABOUT THE LOCATION
Islington has a varied mix of architectural styles. Some of its most historic include flat-fronted Georgian and early Victorian terraces – Colebrook Row is one of the most picturesque Georgian rows and consequently one of the most sought after addresses in London. The area suffered badly from the Blitz when bombs destroyed many properties. Gaps were filled with classic 1950s-60s flats. The area also has some great examples of contemporary buildings such as the Kings Place waterside development.
Gillette Square - approximately 10 minutes away
On the western flank of Gillett Square in Dalston, East London, stands The Dalston Culture House which houses the world famous Vortex Jazz Club on its first floor and has the restaurant/cafe bar Downstairs@TheVortex on its ground floor which opens directly onto Gillett Square and has an outdoor seating area. The square itself regularly hosts special events like Dance Nation Dalston which brings a carnival atmosphere to this part of East London every summer with live music and dance displays and workshops. Play Days in the square during the summer offer outdoor fun and games for all ages including table tennis, Gillett Square's own weird and wonderful 'Snug' play shapes for kids and giant chess.
Servant Jazz Quarters
Despite the name, Servant Jazz Quarters is not strictly a jazz club. Instead you'll find music from many genres at this Dalston music venue which supports innovative artists from all backgrounds, and particularly those from the Hackney area. The name comes from its early days when, before it officially opened its doors in February 2011, they could hear the saxophonist from The Vortex Jazz Club upstairs. The music varies from night to night so you will need to check the website for updates on gigs and events. As a general guide, you can expect an eclectic mix of music ranging from jazz, blues and folk to pop, world music and beyond. On the ground level there is a well-provisioned art deco bar serving a range of cocktails, specialty beers and ales, while the live performances take place in the intimate basement space.
The Little Angel Theatre – approximately 20 minutes away
This innovative children's theatre provides a showcase for the art of puppetry. Founded by master puppeteer John Wilkes in the early 1960s, this small, unusual theatre continues to produce critically acclaimed work that enchants audiences of all ages. The Little Angel Theatre also organise a Saturday Puppet Club and family fun days where the kids get to play with the puppet starlets and craft their own little dramas.

There are marble prep areas, long bar, original floor, oak booths to seat twenty, tiled walls and eel-motif mirrors. However, the rear of the restaurant is a newly-built modern Chinese eatery with oriental imagery filled with warm light from the stained glass ceiling windows.
