Superstore Superstar / FRIDAY NIGHT HOTSPOT

It’s a Scene – a Major Scene, arguably home to Britain’s sceniest scene. The diamond in the rough of Dalston’s dive bars, this two-floored hotspot sees drag queens flirting with teddy boys, moustachioed dandies chewing toothpicks at the bar, and just about all the East End personalities being untouchably cool: DJ/artist Matthew Stone, DJ/fashion designers Pam Hogg and Gareth Pugh (yes, to be cool, you have to be able to DJ). Opened in summer 2009 by three of East London’s hottest promoters – Dan Pope and Mikki Most of Trailer Trash and Dan Beaumont of Disco Bloodbath – this WiFi-enabled cafe-by-day/club-by-night draws inspiration from the hip hoods of Mitte and Williamsburg. But its cement walls splashed with neon graffiti and monthly-changing local art will be all but obscured at their notoriously wild weekend parties (the nights to name-drop are Horsemeat Disco and Homo Electric). Predictably, it’s very gay – it goes with the territory, but it’s open to all. All, that is, that have ‘it’ – you either do or you don’t, and the serious ‘tude on the door is fascist in its discrimination. Tell them you’re with the DJ.
