Introducing your new favourite local… The Shacklewell Arms.
Part of a creative hub in an exciting and upcoming area of Dalston, the historic free house has been taken over by a group of individuals including Dan Crouch (partner in 580/Field Day), the Pub on the Park/Camden Bars collective and Tom Baker (Eat Your Own Ears/Field Day/Underage Festival).
Built in the 1870s, The Shacklewell Arms has been well known for its colourful Caribbean and dancehall inspired décor. The new owners have kept the original features in all their quirky glory, with the only additions being a PA and lights in the back venue space.
With a venue capacity of 200, The Shacklewell Arms is already gaining a reputation for securing secret shows for high profile acts – most recently Chapel Club took to the stage and there are plenty more surprises to look forward to. Independent promoters Upset the Rhythm, Rockfeedback and Eat Your Own Ears are all lining up to put on gigs. Confirmed shows include Abe Vigoda, Keep Shelly in Athens, Cerebral Ballzy, Mazes, Maria & The Mirrors, GIVERS and Let’s Wrestle plus The Shacklewell Arms will play host to the official Field Day afterparty later this summer.
First and foremost, The Shacklewell Arms remains a unique local pub, however now one that features real ales and real ciders on the drinks menu including the Yorkshire brewery Copper Dragon’s Golden Ale. Homemade traditional pub rolls will also be served with a wider food menu to roll out over the summer.
Quite the rarity in the surrounding area, The Shacklewell Arms features a distinctive garden and courtyard imploring you to discover it and make it your favourite new local.
Beach Creep, The Shacklewell Arms in house weekly clubnight will be taking place every Friday and feature regular live appearances from cutting edge new talent alongside DJs spinning a mix of Beastie Boys, KLF, Mazes, TV on the Radio, Mayhem, Neu, Beirut, Odd Future, Pulp, TLC, Four Tet, Teen Girl Fantasy and Weezer. Clubnight collaborations with the likes of Don’t Die Wondering (Merok) and Sex Beat are already confirmed and there will also be a weekly mixtape series launching online shortly.
Bad Passion, Dance Magic Dance, Potty Mouth Disco, It’s a UKG Thing, Slowpoke and Wang will also be descending on The Shacklewell Arms for regular clubnights.
Rockfeedback’s and Sexbeat’s Mini-Radfest all dayer with Abe Vigoda, Dam Mantle, Eagulls + many more will also play host to a poster exhibition by Poster Roast.
