Three heroes of the East End clubbing scene – Mikki Most and Dan Pope from Trailer Trash and Dan Beaumont from Disco Bloodbath – have joined forces to create an exciting new space, with the rather genius name of Dalston Superstore. “Dan and I have been talking about it for two years," says Most. "Then we found this old Turkish restaurant on Kingsland Road that had been abandoned for three years and it all came together.”

Defying the recession, the trio set about gutting the interior and installed a rather fetching skylight feature that marks it out from other gay East End institutions like the infamous George & Dragon and Joiners Arms. “We wanted the upstairs to be like a café in Berlin but the downstairs to have a massive soundsystem, ready for a proper party,” explains Most. Before the place was even finished it played host to a wild "Under Construction" party thrown by The Lovely Jonjo’s night, Hot Boy Dancing Spot, where attendees came attired in hard-hats and bovver boots. In the coming weeks, expect Disco Bloodbath, Trailer Trash, Horse Meat Disco and a whole host of top secret, big-name DJ’s to christen its dancefloor with a proper workout. Hedonism is not the only thing on the menu, though – with the unveiling of new exhibitions from artists, Martin Wollenstam and Alex Noble coming up, as well as the afterparty for Matthew Stone’s next show, it looks like Dalston Superstore will be catering for all our needs.
