About The Dead Dolls House

Storming with the success of their Hoxton pop-up, Dead Dolls House adopt a dose of more concrete inspired cavorting as they take the reigns of what once was Islington's House of Wolf; transforming it into not only a lovingly hushed replica of their Hoxton kick-off, but a whimsical three floors of fun.

Playful and proud, the continued 'Roald Dahl-esque charm' finds a home in three Islington floors. Boasting signature illustrations and a lush neutral palate with flecks of colour, The Dolls House is split between the ground floor Parlour, 2nd floor Library and Dining Room, and a 3rd floor Ballroom, which will also open up as a members bar.

Food is one of the main frolics to be enjoyed at The Dolls House, with a menu that correlates with the fantastically simple and charming interiors of the venue. With a regularly updated seasonal menu, as well as a banging weekend brunch, guests are sure to their new favourite meal.

It's not only the food menu that tailors to a cool craft, cocktails at The Dolls House boast a punchy yet simple charm, as guests can indulge Pisco Sours, Negronis and Old Fashioned. Liquor laced whimsy.

    4.6 Booked The Ballroom for 50th Birthday Party event for 80 guests

    The staff were really friendly and got into the spirit of the evening. Always helpful and never hassling. The buffet was great - very tasty. The room is pretty and comfortable. The location is handy for guests - easy to get to.

    There is a limit on the noise level so we didn't dance as much as I thought we would. Could have done with a bit more volume. The chip butties were a bit dry and not really value for money! but the other food was very nice

    5 Booked The Drawing Room for Party event for 15 guests

    Everything was great! The Library is a very nice, cozy room, and we were provided with plenty of drinks, the food was really good (we ordered platters and everyone was commenting on how yummy the chicken was), the music system was great, you can play your own spotify playlist, and it is really a very charming room, with decorated wallpaper, very nice mirrors and elegant. I would definitely recommend it.

    It was really hot, even though there is air con. But I guess it's a common problem, and it was bearable.

    4.6 Booked The Drawing Room for Tea Party event for 30 guests

    Staff was very polite and helpful, especially prior to the event. The bar is really beautiful and the catering was of good quality. I loved the cocktails and the general atmosphere of the bar.

    We had to go and ask several times to have everything that had been ordered prior to the event on the table and waited for tea for a long time. Also with a 2 pound cake charge per person it would have been nice to have been offered a few bigger plates or dishes to arrange my cakes, instead of just small plates with spoons.

    WHOLEHEARTEDLY RECOMMEND! Everything was PHENOMENAL :)
    We booked the back area for a leaving do for 50 people.
    The cocktails were great (and good value too!), the food was tasty and the DJ kept us dancing until 3am. The staff was 5*. Emily, the manager was prompt to help us organise it (very easy via email) and Emma and the team were amazing on the day. Anything we asked for was taken care of immediately and with a smile. The door staff was attentive but in a laid-back, polite way. Many guests were gushing about how great of a venue we've chosen.
    THANK YOU VERY MUCH Dead Dolls House for making this event a truly memorable one for all of our guests and us!

    Small misunderstanding about the table & chair set up at the very beginning which was solved within 5 minutes.

    4.8 Booked The Ballroom for Birthday Dinner event for 40 guests

    I loved the atmosphere and layout of the venue, and how accomadating Emily and Nadine were with my needs. The wine was great.

    The food that came out wasn't all what the menu I was given stated, and there didn't seem enough of it. Guests had small portions, and those who were vegetarian even smaller. Slightly more food would have been perfect.

    Great central location for a private party. The staff were very friendly and accommodating, making it very easy to book. They alsoprovided us with bespoke cocktail menus which was a lovely touch. The space itself is great and customizable. Above all, they allow external catering, which was a massive help for us.

    Quite a few stairs to get to the top floor, so not suitable for disabled/elderly.

    Emily was really helpful during planning, and everything was prepared as discussed before. The bartender we had dedicated to the room was a star. She was super helpful and readily available to take orders. The food was amazing, we mostly enjoyed the chicken and waffles.

    4.4 Booked The Ballroom for Bridal shower event for 15 guests

    Staff were friendly, and flexible, allowing me to personalise the party by controlling the music, moving tables and chairs after food to play games, bringing my own cake etc. Food came out in good time, great location, nice to have a private space.

    Outside space (visible from one of the windows) was quite untidy with chairs/ tables, and the table cloth provided was quite stained in sections, so I was glad I could cover these up with decorations I'd brought.
