The Eastern Curve Garden is a gem hidden away off the main hustle and bustle of Dalston. An escape from the shops, tall buildings and noise is often needed and this place is the perfect location to meet friends, go and chill out with a book or take your little ones to play in the garden. I think the idea of a'shared garden' is not only great for a little escape for visitors but also for the residents of the ever expanding number of flats and smaller places being rented out with no garden.
Garden Cafe - The garden is funded mainly through its cafe which serves coffee and a range of tea, fresh lemonade and if you come for a drink in the evening they sell beer, cider and wine - perfect. I visited with my mum and little sister recently and had a delicious soya hot chocolate while my little sister opted for the ginger beer which she said was 'too gingery' but I blame her teenage taste buds, the more ginger the better in my opinion. There are plenty of tables and little areas to sit down

The garden should definitely be on your list of places to visit if you have not been already, so keep it in mind next time you organise to meet a friend for a drink. Unfortunately the garden is at risk of being changed drastically or possibly removed altogether.
