untitled restaurant and bar

Andy Warhol’s Factory is given a Japanese re-imagining in this collaborative Dalston space.
538 Kingsland Road,
Looking for something a little bit different and think you’ve exhausted the cultural melting pot of Dalston? Think again.
Although only having opened in 2017, untitled restaurant and bar has quickly consolidated itself as a venue for the celebration of community and all things art. Inspired by the famous Factory of Andy Warhol’s, untitled carries that same torch of celebrating creativity, the community, and, most importantly: individuality.
With a constantly rotating residency for artists and photographers, the walls of untitled are constantly shifting and changing alongside the fast pace of the world of art. Complete with aluminium walls and white stone furniture, the venue provides the perfect canvas on which the East London community can create.
This theme of ‘togetherness’ is only further complimented by its positioning of the bar integrated into the dining space, to make for an immersive dining experience. In terms of dining, you can expect none other than a wonderfully creative Japanese inspired menu, with tasting dinners available to book throughout the year (check out their Instagram to be the first in the know, and to see some seriously mouth-watering food porn).
“We came for the pizza but stayed for the service.”
The best feature, in our opinion, if saved for the back of the space; a beautiful Japanese inspired bar and garden, designed by SoHo & Co, complete with a Yakitori grill that we can’t wait to test out for ourselves in the summer. As well as this, their community spirit doesn’t stop at their artistic space; untitled are constantly teaming up with fellow local institutions for their Bring It To The Table initiative; to deliver workshops and events; anything from paper flower making to Korean cooking classes.
Our idea of a perfect day? Visiting one of untitled’s cool workshops before the sun goes down, securing a little spot in the garden and drinking away the last of the summer sun.
