If you're in London, and you don't like the idea of heading home at midnight, then Dalston is one of the best areas to head to. It's the ultimate after-hours locale, with plenty of late night bars, restaurants, and music venues. It's full of hipsters, true, but it's also full of action, from old-fashioned tunes at the jazz bar to the latest great tunes at Dalston superstore. Bar 23, Rubys, Alibi... the list goes on and on. And when you get peckish, you can even grab yourself a perfect slice of pizza at Voodoo Rays.
