A beautiful Victorian townhouse in the heart of Islington, The Dead Dolls House is not only a buzzing brunch hot spot for the locals, but also a very popular venue for private hire. It’s perfect for an abundance of events including intimate wedding receptions, corporate Christmas parties, baby showers, hen parties, afternoon teas, photo shoots… you name it!

Spaces available for private hire span impressively over three floors of the building. On the ground floor you’ll find The Parlour bar, ideal for drinks receptions, as well as twisting and grooving till as late as 4 AM! Another room, The Library, is a great option for intimate dinners (up to 20 people) to celebrate special occasions in style.

Last but not least, The Dead Dolls House’s top floor is home to The Ballroom, an exposed brick wall party space for up to 80 guests. The icing on the cake: all of the rooms boast their own private bar!
