Music is a mixture of laid back funk and jazz bringing in some beats up as the sun goes down. Check out our exclusive mixes from our resident music maestro TBX http://www.mixcloud.com/TBX/i-love-the-stew-house-kicking-off-for-another-winter-off-content/
Far bigger than the Hoxton one, this warren of rooms is just crying out to be explored and adored. As Adam and Katy doll up each space in their own inimitable hand-drawn style. Rooms such as the ground floor Parlour, the first floor Drawing Room and the Library complete with Espresso Martini Bar and the second floor Ballroom; rooms that would look ramshackle in less imaginative hands are literally re-drawn to create inspiring spaces to hire for private and corporate events and generally in which to shirk, rest and above all play.
And if that Quentin Blake vibe lends a childlike Roald Dahl-esque charm to the surroundings, it’s tempered with the knowing, archly humorous quality that runs through every facet of the place. Take the membership policy for example. It doesn’t call for a second mortgage – just an online application and a well-chosen gift when you turn up for the first time in the form of a bottle of posh, top shelf liquor from their approved gift list, which makes this the antithesis of the established West End members’ clubs. Whatever you turn up with, as a new member you’ll get a very warm welcome including a drink from the bottle you’ve brought and a guided tour of the house.
Daryl Wilson, fresh from the heady gastronomic heights from some of London’s superb eateries; The Salt House (St Johns Wood) and Ampersand has created a menu that’s perfectly in keeping with the Dolls House way of making things look childishly simple: classic dishes created from locally sourced ingredients of superb quality – such as the 45-day aged Dexter Sirloin or the droolworthy duck fat chips for example. Daryl will be creating a lighter bar menu and be cooking a terrific roast dinner with all the trimmings on Sundays.
The cocktails continue that coolly classic approach, with subtle tongue-tingling twists on traditional tinctures such as the Amaretto, Whisky or Pisco Sour with lemon, sugar and egg white, the Negroni or the Old Fashioned – all of which blend rather nicely with the generally laid back and funky choice of music including live jazz and resident DJs Bex, Alex (Bear Grooves) and Jack in the ground floor Parlour.
Taking over the former ‘House of Wolf’ site, The Dolls House is a multi-faceted / multi-story restaurant, bar and club on the ever-trendy Upper Street. Having proven to be hugely successful at their Hoxton site, The Dolls House’s second site, with it’s seemingly never-ending supply of floors and rooms, has enough room and character to provide forms of entertainment. As well as being a restaurant, café, bar and club; The Dolls House also has multiple private dining rooms (each with their own bar), a members area (one of the coolest and well designed rooms you’re likely to find, an espresso bar and a stage for live music. Open seven days a week, and with a very fun Sunday Roast Jazz session, Dolls House is a super spot.
