About this space

In House of Correction Bar, you will be taken to a world where quality cocktails, a comprehensive beer list, and a concise wine list are all you have to worry about.

The design of the space gently alludes to the darker side and mixed history of the venue, while studiously avoiding wandering into the realms of the ‘themed’ bar. Red latern lights softly illuminate the black and white mural covered walls making the figures seem like they're almost dancing around the cushioned booths and intimate tables.

House of Correction exudes style and is perfect for your next cocktail event whether that be a birthday, anniversary, engagement, celebration, workplace get together or something else deserving of a special night.
