Having a birthday pub crawl in a couple of weeks either taking one of the above two routes. Name some pubs/bars that you would go to if you were doing either of those routes.
Dalston route I'm thinking Craft Beer Co. in Farringdon, then the Shakespeare in Clerkenwell, Masque Haunt by Old St, the Macbeth, then the Duke's Brew and Que and then The Brewery Tap on Kingsland Rd.
Bethnal Green route, first two as above, then The Water Poet, Bar Kick (never been but sounds like my sort of place), The Birdcage on Columbia Rd and then the Old George on Bethnal Green Road.
