Last night Mr & Mrs Dolls House said goodbye to 35 Hoxton Square, their home for the last 18 months.
All is not lost though! A new bigger version of The Dolls House is popping up in Islington and open from 20th February and also a new home in Peckham (more details to follow soon). The Dolls House Islington formally The House of Wolf, is oozing with character, original features and will be getting Mr & Mrs Dolls House magic treatment in the forthcoming weeks. The essence of the past glorious 18 months will still be in tact at the new venue with live jazz & swing, DJs, superb locally sourced delicious dishes from chef, Daryl Wilson and finally those knock out cocktails all served up with The Dead Dolls Club superb hospitality, all smiley and fun with that little hint of mischief – that we have grown to love about the place.

Coming soon to Angel, a dining and cocktail adventure which is a cut above.
Fine British fare and far-flung drinks.
You could be one of the first to take a journey through the ages and senses with Hoxley & Porter.
Simply follow us on twitter @hoxleyandporter and we’ll sneak you in to the launch event on 13th Sept.
Something exciting is coming to Chinatown in London’s W1.
OPIUM COCKTAIL & DIM SUM PARLOUR
Discover a jade door amongst the sensory flurry that characterises one of London’s most characterful neighbourhoods. If the light is on, step through into a cornucopia of flexible drinking and dining spaces: lounge seating, for grazing and sharing; intimate boudoir-drinking-dens and open-plan bars.
The centre-piece of the second floor is the Chinese Apothecary bar where ‘mysterious’ liquids are identified by a coding system of Chinese characters. Opium spirals upward, through a carriage-saloon reminiscent of the Orient Express, into the attic Academy; where cocktail connoisseurs can watch Dre and his team work their magic at the ‘bartenders table’.
A DEN OF ORIENTAL-ECLECTICIS
The design, by award-winning collective Office Sian & Kai Design, continues the Oriental eclecticism that defines Opium. The ornately-carved furniture, tones of rich red and porcelain blue, opulent prints and traditional art that you’d expect are given a contemporary London feel: metallic finishes, tinted glass and mirrors playing with the perspective.
Expected opening will be 26th November – watch this space
