A Huge Food, Drink, Culture and Wellbeing Hub Is Opening in Dalston

The Street Feast site is becoming a food destination once again

Dominic Cools-Lartigue is hoping for a repeat of his Street Feast success, which helped brands like Smokestak, Bleecker, Pizza Pilgrims and Bao develop, with his new project Dalston Yard. Opening on the same site as his OG concept, Dalston Yard will feature ten kitchens, seven bars art, music, cultural events and a wellbeing programme across 27,000 sq ft.

The food and drink spaces will be the primary draw to Dalston Yard, with the line-up including:

  • Roseau: a bakehouse serving viennoiserie, flatbreads, coffee, adaptogenic teas and homemade juices by day and a wine bar serving espresso martinis and natural wines on tap by night
  • Liquid Affairs: a bottleshop, workshop and bar led by award-winning mixologist Rich Woods
  • Little Gai: a dive bar with everything from izakaya-inspired dishes from Acme Fire Cult to vegan Jamaican patties by Denai Moore to Chin Chin Labs ice creams on offer
  • The Butcher of Dalston: a chophouse from Andrew Clarke with dishes like chicken dripping on toast with caviar & crème fraîche and bacon ribs with Oxford Sauce
  • Brothers & Sisters: an African diasporic diner where the menu will include the likes of Ethiopian Asa Kitfo (fish steak tartare), Brazilian Acaraje Donuts, Trench Town French Toast and Suya Smashburgers
  • Yard Kitchens: four kitchens hosting seasonal residencies, launching with Gizzi Erskine’s French concept Cuisine PLC and Budgie Montoya’s take on Filipino BBQ

Once you’ve had your fill, you’ll be able to get involved in film screenings, expert talks, performances, and Good Mornings wellbeing sessions from Lauren Raby at The Window Club; exhibitions at commercial art gallery and dining space Amphi, which’ll be joining Dalston Yard’s large-scale murals and rotating selection of art; and changing soundtracks curated by the likes of Phonica Records, Eastern Margins and No Signal. And if that wasn’t enough, come autumn the Co-Working Library and Lounge will open, so you’ll be able to work as well as play at Dalston Yard, because Dalston is the new (old) place to be.
