Somewhere you should go… Sassafras New Orleans pop-up

Need a break from the lashing winds and cold rain? Wish you could lose yourself in another culture, one full of rich foods, strong drinks, and people just interested in having a good time? Head north to Dalston Pond, and you’ll find a bit of the southern US in north London. Running for three days in February, Sassafras bills itself as a Taste of New Orleans in Dalston. The pop-up space will be home to photography exhibition showcasing Louisiana and New Orleans since the 1970s. After that, a series of supper clubs will be running featuring Creole and Cajun flavours to make you forget you’re in N16.
