I first came to London in 1977. Then it was King’s Road (believe or not!). By late 70s – early 80s, it was Camden and Portobello. It moved to Soho by mid 80s. In the beginning of 90s, it moved to Islington after popping into Notting Hill for a short while. Then to Shoreditch only to spilling into Dalston and Hackney. Yes, I love Dalston and DDS now as I loved Vortex in 70s, Taboo in 80s, because it has that elusive “it” I’ve been chasing for decades.
