Arguably London's leading contemporary jazz club, with live jazz every night. The artists range from international stars, such as Tim Berne and Wolfgang Muthspiel through top London artists such as Seb Rochford, Evan Parker and John Taylor through to the young lions of the scene from F-IRE Collective and similar. The club reopened in Dalston in May 2005, after 15 years in Stoke Newington Church Street.
Directions: The Vortex is 100 yards from Dalston Kingsland station (Silverlink Metro). Alternatives are buses from Highbury & Islington, Liverpool Street and Finsbury Park.
