Magnolia

Well everyone knows Efes, stalwart of the Dalston strip. But step a mere three feet forwards and you’ll find the unassuming floral double doors of the Magnolia Banqueting Hall. Stumble down the long, (appropriately regal) red-carpeted corridors to the cavernous enclave inside, a giant room stretching as far as the eye can see, complete with floor-to-ceiling lights disguised as marble columns. Normally reserved for weddings and the like, Land of Kings takes it over for the weekend, transforming it into a cave of live music and good times, as well as the main box office.
