Four drinks down and it’s time to round things off. Thankfully my Eastern offering isn’t that far away, on Kingsland Road. It’s fair to say that Untitled, from cocktail maestro Tony Conigliaro, divides opinion. To some it doesn’t fit in, has no place in Dalston, and is another sign of the areas gentrification. To others it's way ahead of its time, and the rest of Dalston needs to catch up. Personally, I think it fits in quite nicely, right now, and at any time. I love the fact that this super modern minimal cocktail bar sits directly opposite Arthurs, a proper East End café, run by father, son and grandson since 1935. Like a good cocktail, it’s the mix of their distinct and differing elements, that makes Dalston - and London - so compelling. Regardless of your views on what the bar does for the area, get over it, get inside and get involved. It’s one of those places where everyone is eyeing up everyone else’s drinks, which are all served in rather splendid vessels. I’m a big fan of the super smooth Gonzo, mixing tequila, caramel, ambrette and buckwheat. Ending the night on tequila should hopefully provide some fuel for what’s supposed to be a short walk home. Living around the corner is both a blessing and a curse.
