Playing with Dead Dolls

Don't be afraid.

Even though I have a great love for horror movies, which is probably thanks to me growing up in the '80's, and all those classic horror characters from that era, I'm not pointing you in the direction of a haunted house.

No, in fact you are looking at, and reading about, a rather lovely cocktail bar situated in the Islington area.

The Dead Dolls House started out as a pop-up in the Dalston area, but ended up permanently in the delightful Victorian three-storey townhouse it is situated in now, via a short stint in the famous Hoxton Square.

Mainly the building caters for private events and functions, however the Parlour bar, found on the ground floor, is a public bar, and a great place to sample some of their lovely cocktails. The upstairs rooms are bookable in advance, and include a restaurant, and a rather sophisticated private room with its own bar.

So, returning to the alcoholic beverages for a moment. There are a lot of cocktails on offer, and mostly they fit into the under £10 bracket, which is good when you consider the quality of the products on offer. There are also some interesting takes on classic drinks, the Nettle Daiquiri being an obvious one.

So for a venue with wow factor, and drinks which fire the imagination as much as the tastebuds, it is more than worth your while coming to check this place out.

One last thing, no dolls were harmed in the making of this review...
