Vogue Fabrics *

Very Now in 2011 (and 2012) (and 2013) (and 2014) (and 2015)
A disco/art/fashion-minded, zero-decor basement club on the border of Hackney/Dalston and Stoke Newington, its mystique enhanced by semi-regular hot and sweaty dance nights such as Dirtbox (moustaches, moist cracks, 80s electro/synthpop, italo disco, house and newer pop, every six or eight weeks). This is an intimate space with a small but buzzy dance area; it feels a bit like someone's living room, but with a DJ. Vogue Fabrics owner and fashion/costume designer Lyall Hakaraia lives close by with an eye on the festivities: "We're a roleplay pitstop; a Haberdashery Hacienda by day, by night a cultural Helter Skelter, showcasing the creative hub of East London with the very best in music, performance and mayhem." Vogue Fabrics is drag- and transgender-friendly, and compatible with its more high-octane neighbour Dalston Superstore [see entry], just a few minutes' walk away, among the area's many Turkish food outlets. Check website for its twisted spectrum of themes and audiences. Warning: it's kinda difficult to spot. Overground stations: Dalston Kingsland [formerly called North London Line] and Dalston Junction [modern extenstion of what used to be called East London Line].
