Dalston Yards set to launch in East London this July

Dalston Yard is the brainchild of Dominic Cools-Lartigue, who has secured more than £1m in funding for the venue from private investors

East London is set to welcome a new venue offering food and drink, culture and wellbeing on a 27,000 sq ft site.

Dalston Yard, which opens on July 5th, will be a one-stop shop for art, music and wellbeing alongside food and drink from some of the capital’s top operators.

Ten different kitchens will include permanent restaurants such as The Butcher of Dalston, an international chop house from Acme Fire Cult’s Andrew Clarke, and Brothers and Sisters, an African take on a classic diner offering diasporic dishes from across the continent and the Caribbean.

Summer residencies will include Filipino barbecue from chef Budgie Montoya and a French-meets-Asian bistro from food writer Gizzi Erskine. A summer cooking club will teach local teens cooking skills and nutrition.

On the drinking front, seven bars and a bottle shop will offer wines, cocktails and craft beers curated by award-winning mixologist Rich Woods.

Cultural offerings, meanwhile, will extend to film screenings, expert talks and wellbeing sessions. Each weekend will feature live music, while exhibitions and events will be held in Amphi, a new commercial art gallery and dining space.

The new venture is designed to tap into the post-lockdown trend of third spaces for remote workers keen to escape their homes, with a co-working library and lounge due to open in the autumn.

Dalston Yard opens on 5th July at Hartwell Street, E8 3DU in London.
