City & Culture

A Hands-On Integration of Art and Environment
Colleen Fanning helps create a meaningful art experience for the public.  We manage complete programming designed to embrace your demographic.  We help city planners, architects, interior designers and developers bring notoriety to designed spaces by evaluating and planning every stage of the art integration process.  You will have selections from both the primary and secondary market.  Examples of secondary market acquisitions are Donald Lipski's "The Yearling", Fernando Botero's "Theatre Goers".

Shopping

The Hackney borough, of which Dalston belongs, has it all—from bespoke boutiques that feature independent designers to thrift stores and craft fairs full of one-of-a-kind finds. This is where rising fashion stars like Mara Bond got their start, taking inspiration from the dynamic culture of East London. No matter what store you go to, you’ll find products that you couldn’t get anywhere else.

Fine dining

We believe that dining needn’t be expensive to be fine. Dalston and its surrounding districts boast some of the best Caribbean, Polish, Vietnamese, and Turkish food in London, and all at affordable prices. Those looking for a more posh vibe will be happy to know that our neighborhood also offers restaurants headed by some of the most world-renowned chefs, like Hunter Fisher of Thornberry.

World class bars

Dalston nightlife is top-notch. You can watch the latest game while you enjoy UK staples like Nameless Beer, Demo Ale, and Filler Stout. Or try some small-batch beers crafted by local breweries. If cocktails are your preferred poison, trendy mixology establishments, complete with plush couches and date night lighting, are peppered throughout East London.
