SquareMeal Review of
The Dead Dolls House Islington
With its great bar, occasional live music and general feeling of decadence, there’s no doubt that this venue is hip, but not so hip that it forgets to enjoy itself. To enhance the interiors of the old Victorian townhouse, outlines of furniture have been drawn on the walls, giving an almost storybook appearance while keeping space at a maximum. Divided into rooms on different levels, the ground-floor parlour is for drinking and music – venture further up the building for private dining spaces, a restaurant featuring classic easy-eating gastropub-style food (think cured salmon, steaks cooked by Big Green Egg, Pimm’s cheesecake) and a member’s club at the top. It’s fun, buzzy and a great place for a date.
