Servant Jazz Quarters
In spite of its name, Servant Jazz Quarters isn't a dedicated jazz venue; before it was fully licensed, it was possible to hear sax players warming up in the Vortex Jazz Club upstairs. SJQ likes innovative musicians, however, and has featured people as diverse as Hot Chip, Anna Meredith, Eddie Prévost, Laura Mvula, Steve Beresford and Seb Rochford – not all at the same time, unfortunately. The bar serves cocktails (the Tarte Tatin, involving calvados, caramel liqueur and green apple, sounds teeth-hurtingly delicious) and draught Budvar and Samuel Adams, with a wide range of bottled beers and spirits.
SJQ is located a couple of minutes' walk from Dalston Junction and Dalston Kingsland Overgournd stations, and is served by the 30, 38, 56, 67, 76, 149, 236, 242, 277, N38 and N76 bus routes.
