A late night stroll down Ridley Road comes up trumps when you stumble on the inconspicuous presence of the Ridley Road Market Bar. On a street that’s so maniacally hectic during the day, it is surreal to find the stretch of Dalston street so deserted come 9pm, but it is, no lies.
The Market Bar has gradually ebbed its way into London’s collective consciousness as the Hippest New Bar to drink in, and you can see why. Serving nothing but cans of Red Stripe and a meager collection of whisky and tequila based cocktails; simplicity is clearly the key here.
With a faintly tropicalia theme evident in its plastic flowers and hula girl décor, it is something different. Originally a café, serving up artisanal street food on the pavement outside (which it still does), it has since got hold of a liquor license, which has turned it into one of the finest night owls in Dalston.
There’s a refreshing lack of pretense in the people who can’t get enough of the faintly ironic tunes that come from the DJ’s at the back. But is it really ironic if the music makes you dance this hard? Is it really a crime to rap every word to Regulate? And when was the last time you heard a bar end the night with a crude bunch of kids chanting ‘whoop… there it is, whoop… there it is’? Exactly. This is good, clean fun and now you know where to go the next time you find yourself aimlessly wandering in Dalston.
