Café Oto for a while. A laid-back café during the day, by night it hosts a brilliant roster of live music – jazz, folk, experimental – in an informal and intimate space. I visited a few Sundays ago to see a tribute to jazz drummer Steve Reid and enjoyed a really uplifting, special night of music. Situated in Dalston, it's sparse but cosy and serves a wide range of speciality beers, ciders and oddities such as Japanese whisky. It just has such a great vibe. Pictured above by day. And look what happens by night:
Far out. I've just booked tickets to go and see Sun Ra's Arkestra there. (Pictured above when they played in April.) Buy tickets here and see what else is coming up here.
