Despite being used to serving happiness by the slice, pizza connoisseurs Voodoo Ray's have created a drinking den that offers three delectable courses of flavoursome cocktails.

Found under the Voodoo Ray's Dalston site, they serve delicious pizzas to ensure things remain on an even keel. Slightly mischievous, with an alluring streak running through it, the venue blends back-street Tokyo bar with an East London twist. 

Designed by the creative thinkers at the Lab Bar, and composed of handcrafted spirits, fresh fruits and bespoke bitters, each cocktail on the menu is split into starters, mains and desserts. For the full 'dinner' experience, you'll need to bunker down for the night. The gin-based Shady Pines or the Prosecco infused Pink Flamingo will get the ball rolling, before the mains course - the Rio Cross, made with coconut rum, and the Tunnel Dancer, composed of Lagavulin whiskey and bourbon - kicks in. To round off the meal, the sugary Sensational Sherry and the Labyrinth will do the trick. Who knew 3 course dinners could pack such a punch?

Ray's Bar Dalston - London Bar Review

What with living South of the river it’s not often I pop East, but with talks of a new cocktail den adding to Dalston’s growing and diverse cocktail scene I felt the trip would do me good. Venturing below ground to Ray’s Bar, apart...

Was made to feel very welcome, staff were friendly and offered speedy service on cocktails and other drinks all night. We enjoyed a huge Ray's pizza which was heavenly, as per. Visited Ray's Bar on 2018-02-16

The staff were excellent; friendly, knowledgable and efficient. The music was at times REALLY loud which made conversation difficult but the overall experience was exceptionally good. Oh, and the cocktails were amazing! 😁 Visited Ray's Bar on 2018-01-26

Very cool venue; great staff and great band! Visited Ray's Bar on 2018-01-10

The bar staff were very lovely and the service was overall really great. Ray's Bar were very flexible in terms of the size of the party I had booked the table for. It would have been nice to get some extra water glasses for everyone, not just 5 for the whole table, but that was just a minor thing. always love going to this bar and loved it again this time.

I hired an area for my 30th birthday and was quite disappointed by several things. This was all such a shame as I loved the venue and the pizza and cocktails were delicious. 1. The music was barely audible on arrival at 1930. I asked for it to be turned up twice, and it was only slightly better. It therefore lacked a lot of atmosphere. I saw that there was a live band starting up, but just as we were leaving (because people wanted music and to dance! Otherwise my plan had been to stay much later). 2. There was warm air being pumped out directly into our area at the back resulting in many of my friends feeling unwell. I had to ask to turn it off. 3. Bar service was not allowed! This was hugely inconvenient as my group was of about 25 people. This meant the staff who were trying to do table service could not cope - many people had to wait 40 minutes + for their drinks. Also initially an 'area tab' was set up which was very impractical as everyone would be paying individually - the staff then had to go back an individually charge people.

I was already a fan of their epic slices of pizza, especially King Tubby, but their cocktails are also just as good quality and definitely strong - in the best way of course! I will definitely be back :) Visited Ray's Bar on 2017-02-21

Such an awesome bar! We loved trying a cocktail from each 'course' - made for a very fun boozy evening. Definitely recommend the Last Mango in Paris. The pizzas are also EPIC - the fennel sausage was our absolute fave. Visited Ray's Bar on 2017-08-03

A very nicely-designed, chilled-out and friendly bar below their brilliant pizza place, with a very interesting cocktail menu, Ray's is a great addition to the chaotic Kingsland strip. Eight of us booked and were seated in a comfortable area of this relatively small venue with attentive servers and speedy mixmasters! Visited Ray's Bar on 2017-05-05

The booking expirience was so unprofessional, ineffective and painful that I won't recomend this place. We bought a TimeOut voucher and we followed the booking process. Our FIVE mails were completely ignored...awful Visited Ray's Bar on 2017-05-05

Beautifully decorated, super friendly staff - this is a little hidden gem. Being in the basement gives it a very cosy feel and the live bands adds another dimension to your enjoyment. Cocktails are unusual and refreshing -I look forward returning already

Great table service, amazing pizza (as usual) and exciting cocktails. The atmosphere downstairs was really great, lovely decor. But it did seem a bit quiet for a Friday night (we were in a booth from 7pm to 9:45ish). Visited Ray's Bar on 2017-03-17

This place is brilliant. We stumbled across it whilst having some pizza upstairs in Voodoo Ray's. The cocktails are the best in Dalston hands down. Definitely will be back soon!

Literally it feels like a you've walked onto the set of Drive/La La Land. With uber friendly staff and pizza from upstairs to die for. We cancelled our plans to go to another bar and stayed there till 1 am. Shot hot cocktails, music and most of all staff. I couldn't recommend Ray's more. Visited Ray's Bar on 2017-02-25
