In honour of the great city London is and the venues it has to offer, we're starting a new blog series highlighting some of our personal faves. And what better way to kick it off than with Dalston's own, Brilliant Corners.
The one and only...
Named after a seminal album by the one and only Theloniuos Monk, this East London spot is the perfect blend of fine food and great music. The food is of the Japanese variety, and the menu contains an extensive selection of sushi, maki and tempura. And while you're tucking into the finest array of grub, you can look forward to any number of local and international acts taking to the stage.
A closer look into the line-up, and you can find such gems as Finders Keepers and Ruf Kutz, in addition to any number of local nights featuring vinyl-only DJs. And that's just taking a snapshot of what's been on over the past 2 weeks. Take into account that they have fresh music every day, year round, all for free and you really start to get a sense of what this place is about. The sound system is something for nerds to drool over, while the acoustics and engineering are always spot on. Whether you're in for that obscure DJ set or a relaxing Jazz trio, you're guaranteed to leave yearning for more.
This vibe and atmosphere coupled with such a killer drinks menu, makes this the perfect London spot and a worthy first entry for our series. Make sure to check these guys out. It's venues like this that keep the buzz alive in our great city, and long may it last. Head down there, you won't regret it!
