What they say:

Following the success of The Stew House in winter 2011 and The Summer Affair with London Fields Brewery this summer, The Dead Dolls Club is now setting up shop on Kingsland Road in Dalston, promising a creative mix of design, drinking, eating and dancing. Sounds cool, huh?  

Originally a Hackney based design studio, The Dead Dolls Club have risen from humble roots and have been involved in a number of exhibitions, pop-up restaurants and creative projects; their new pop-up winter venture will take residence in the heart of East London for a six month period. The menu will be a market-led quintessentially British affair (think hearty winter stews with fresh bread) accompanied by locally sourced beers from the London Fields Brewery, and a monthly cocktail menu designed by guest mixoligists. 

The Dead Dolls Club's Summer Affair was a hit, which bodes well for the winter pop-up. Resident party DJ BexTBX will be keeping the crowd dancing on the weekends until the wee hours, which makes this new bar a triple threat. The Dead Dolls Club looks like it has all covered, and is likely to be popular with the cool kids of the area, and also those inquisitive folk looking for a genuinely quirky bar experience.

What we say:

Here at DesignMyNight we're not sure if it's the locally sourced beer, cockle-warming food or the promise of a good ol' shake down party, but we're excited to try out the delights The Dead Dolls Club has to offer. The mix of beer and sumptuous cocktails means it will be a crowd pleaser for groups of friends visiting, or even those who aren't really sure what type of night they're looking for. The authentic and homely make-up of the bar is in-keeping with the overall vision and based on the success of their previous ventures, The Dead Dolls Club is likely to be a popular addition to this already cool part of town.
