Description

Discreetly tucked away in the saucy setting of a Victorian bathhouse, Drink, Shop & Do are all about the good times.

By day: a mild-mannered King’s Cross café and spritz bar serving specialty teas, coffees, healthy lunches and dreamy cakes. By night: a merry den of drinking and dancing, where guests can reconnect with their inner big kid. Keen to get crafty? DSD is the place for you. You’ll find an events schedule packed with everything from Lego Robots to Play With Clay, Lionel Rich Tea to Papier Mache Monsters. They're usually free to take part; just buy a drink and get stuck in.

Slip on your dancing shoes come Friday and Saturday where you'll catch our resident DJs playing old skool favourites, the classics you can't help but dance to and the new releases you're desperately trying to Shazam. It's free to get in before 10pm, too. Party ’til 2am, get some kip then return for brunch; where you'll find DSD serving unlimited bagels, booze and board games all day.

Hen do? They love you. Corporate meet? They're right up your street. After-work boozing? They're the ones to get you grooving.

Was brilliant! Would defo go again. Only note of improvement is the top ups for bagels was slow and sparklers on the cake was missing but promised! Otherwise no other complaints! Thinking of doing future parties there Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2018-02-18

Really nice venue, unfortunately it was a bit noisy so it was difficult to have a conversation. The service was very friendly and the food was tasty, though outrageously overpriced! I would have liked a more extensive choice of teas, the selection wasn't quirky enough in my opinion. Also, the cakes selection was difficult to divide since it wasn't one per person. Despite this i enjoyed my time here and think it would be a nice place to celebrate a party Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2018-02-18

Drink Shop Do is normally amazing! I have been there many times for bottomless brunch and I have never been so disappointed. Our waitress was clearly stressed as many people were complaining. We ended up going to the bar ourselves to ask to be served twice. There were at least two times when our glasses were empty for up to 20minutes. As the waitress was stressed we left it but it was not the greatest experience I have had here. Which is a massive shame as it puts a returning customer off coming back.

Always a fabulous night at DSD. Friendly and fun staff and a non pretentious london club...rare!!! Be prepared to spend a decent amount on drinks but with guestlist or £3 entry it balances out. Would always recommend DSD it’s a great night out with amazing music. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2018-02-03

I have been here several times before for a cup of tea and slice of cake and always loved it! Therefore I decided afternoon tea here would be perfect for my birthday. There were 5 of us in total and we had the afternoon tea and unlimited prosecco. The food was lovely and very good portion sizes! Several different cakes to try and delicious scones with cream and jam. I even got a piece of birthday cake with a candle in which was a lovely touch. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the service was very fast. We had out table from 2-4pm but were not rushed out at all, in fact I think we left about 4.45pm. Would definitely recommend this place for a quick cup of tea or for a full afternoon tea. It is absolutely fabulous and brilliant value for money! Thank you to all of the staff :) Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2018-01-27

We had a lovely time at Drink Shop Do. However, there was a very large group in at the same as us. This meant that we spent over 40 minutes waiting for our first bagels and had to ask for every top-up of drinks. I appreciate that it can be challenging to cater for large groups however as a pre-booked experience it would have been useful to have at least more serving staff. I had recommended and booked our brunch for a birthday treat for a friend as I had been before and been particularly impressed with the service. We weren’t made to feel very special and it was actually quite stressful at times trying to get the waiting staff’s attention. If this had been my only experience if Drink Shop Do I wouldn’t recommend, but I have had a brilliant time there before. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2018-01-07

Tasty bagels - but after a couple I was stuffed so didn't feel it was the best value for money unless you can put away a decent amount! Would prefer more variety for brunch. Great bloody Mary! The Virgin option was also very good. Friendly attentive staff who catered to my group's various dietary requirements. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2018-01-07

It was a great evening although the food was two hours late which meant we had to order more drinks which we did not plan for. The dessert did not come out until 10pm when we asked about it. Not sure if it would have been brought out. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-12-19

The day started 30 mins late. Drinks were not ready as requested. - It took 20 mins for one table to get a jug of a preordered 'punch bowl'?! This jug served 4 people of the ten that were sat there. There wasn't enough catering for 60 guests. Half the rooms didn't get most of the items listed. In no way was this enough. Even when I requested to add on the meat boards - nothing further came. The games person did a 25 question quiz which took 2 hours!?? This was not fun, nor suitable for a group as large as ours. See below for the email and timings I received.

We were very disappointed when we arrived, having booked for lunch and paid a £90 deposit in advance, to find food was not available. Once the staff realized their error the chef did offer to provide food but still a little disappointed as 2 out of 3 main courses where not going to be available. We got around this by making the most of what was available and having several sharers. We were compensated for all the disappointment with free cake. Despite all the problems the staff were very good and we all had a good time. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-12-07

The contact with the venue in the lead up to the event was great, Tali was really helpful with our requests and helping us with the booking overall. However, when we got to the venue, we were shown to the back room, and another xmas party arrived, saying they had booked that room. Which meant we were moved AFTER our guests had arrived - which caused great unnecessary confusion. Our craft 'leader' was quite negative with me as the organiser - asking if our team would "be compliant", we then didn't see her again throughout the time we were at the venue. We asked that the food be moved forward, which did not happen until prompted, which meant that the crafting happened with plates and cutlery on the tables, and was not ideal. The food was good overall however, and the main contact on the day was very apologetic for the confusion, but for this reason we would not use again. I have also asked for a VAT receipt which has not been sent. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-12-08

We really enjoyed the activity, the space and the music! However, we felt that the staff wasn't too coordinated. Nor at the time of our arrival nor at the check out time. Although we requested for some dietary conditions, when we got there it took the kitchen by surprise. Also, as part of the pre-order we requested dessert/sweets, those never arrived.

It seems the DJ has changed and refused to play any music anyone knew.

Staff were not very attentive, we were sat at our table for 10minutes before we had to call someone over to serve, they also forgot which bagels we ordered at one point, they don’t come round to top you drinks up often... think it’s better value just to go for brunch rather than the bottomless option.

Went for the bottomless brunch. As we were seated in a selerste area from the main hustle and bustle I think initially we were forgotten about. However, the bagels were great and the proseco was lovely. The waitresses were polite and well mannered. The venue itself is a bit of a tight squeeze. On the whole was pleasant but doubt I would go again. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-11-19

I had no problem booking an area for my 30th Birthday party 2 weeks in advance. The prices and pre-order options are very reasonable and everything was really easy. Unfortunately I had to cancel my party due to unforeseen circumstances and I was issued a refund within 5 minutes of requesting it with a personal confirmation (instead of automated message). Great service despite the failed party!

I expected more from this place, upstairs looked lovely but we were put on a table downstairs at the back in a basement, it was a bit dark and dingey down there. We picked up 3 games from upstairs to play at our table and all three were not complete and we were unable to play. As a place that seels itself on being able to do activities at your table i thought they might have been complete. Service was quite good but as an overall experience you can go for much nice brunches elsewhere. Not sure i would go again. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-10-28

The service was good and the staff were very attentive. We had a lot to eat and drink. The avocado bagel was the best! We were playing monopoly and we didn't have enough space either. So we asked for a slightly bigger table and still struggled. It was a extendable table, but you could see so much filth between that gap. Quite a cramped place. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-10-15

The atmosphere very friendly but service super slow and not really attentive. Interesting place , something different. I will actually consider coming back😊 Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-10-10

A little disappointing. Booked a table for a small group for my birthday, expecting 'Bubblegum Pop with doughnut decorating upstairs' and 'Hot Right Now' downstairs. Neither floor seemed to match what was advertised. The tunes upstairs were far from pop and no sign of doughnuts. Downstairs was a mixed bag. Otherwise, a good location, reasonably priced and staff all great. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-09-29

It was really fun and everyone seemed to enjoy it. The person hosting the activity for the hen party could have been a bit friendly, she was quite sharp with some of the guests (we were drunk and on a hen do so maybe a little annoying) but i think that could have been managed a bit better.

Hi, The bride and Hens really enjoyed the making of the flower head garlands, the host was fantastic and it was a lot of fun. However the reason for the lower score, the afternoon tea was very disappointing. It was of low standard, some of the bread used was a little stale, including the cakes. This is not something you wouls expect in any form of food services. Thanks, Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-09-02

Thank you for taking the time to offer us feedback. We're so glad you enjoyed the flower headband making and thought your host was fantastic! I'm so sorry to read that you were disappointed with your afternoon tea. I've passed your comments on to our kitchen manager. Our bread and cake deliveries arrive on Saturday and Sunday morning so the afternoon tea should have been fresh. We'll be following up with our suppliers to find out what happened. We hope you still managed to have a lovely time and we very much hope to see you at Drink, Shop & Do again soon.

We were promised bubbles, bagels and board games however the only bit we were satisfied with were the bubbles...the bagels were really not very tasty and took a long time to arrive given how simple they were. There was a rubbish selection of poorly looked after board games - surely you could get some more from a charity shop or something? The waitress was nice however and did keep our prosecco bottomless. Would not visit again sorry. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-08-20

Reply from Drink Shop & Do

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us. Customer feedback is so important to us as it helps us to improve! I'm glad to read that you enjoyed the bottomless prosecco. I'm sorry that our bagel toppings were not to your taste. Do you have any suggestions for bagel topping that I could pass on to the kitchen? I've passed on your comment about the food service being slow to our Kitchen Manager, who will be looking into how we can improve. I'm very sorry that you found the board games to be poorly looked after. As our bottomless brunch is quite popular it does mean that the games are subject to more wear and tare than usual and need to be replaced frequently. Thank you very much for bringing this to my attention. We have just invested in some more. I'm glad that your server was nice and kept your glasses topped. We would love to see you at Drink, Shop & Do again soon. Many Thanks Drink, Shop & Do

Service was slow, we waited 40 mins for a cheese board and charcuterie board. Then had to ask for plates and cutlery. Wouldn't rush back or recommend Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-08-09

Reply from Drink Shop & Do

Thank you for your feedback. I'm terribly sorry to hear about the wait for your food. I'm afraid that unfortunately on busy evening mistakes can occur and unfortunately your cheese & charcuterie boards where taken to another table. The table that received these did not let us know that it was not their order so the kitchen and servers thought that your order was complete until you had brought to our attention 40 mins later that you were still waiting. Our kitchen made your order top priority to get your food out as quickly as possible. I'm so sorry for this delay. We very much hope to see you at Drink, Shop & Do again soon.

My friends an I attended the Nipple Tassle workshop on Monday. We could buys delicious cocktails from the bar (the Lemon Tart was particularly good) and access the instructions and materials to make the items at our leisure.

The booking was not set up for the time we had arrange - our hen do package was not ready for our hen. The waiters and waitresses were very un-attentive - we had to go up to the bar frequently to ask for items. We had to ask them to clear our table 4 times. They kept getting half way through and then forgetting. So we didn't have space for the mug decorating we had arranged. The food was great though. Really big sandwich and salad portions.

Reply from Drink Shop & Do

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback about your experience. I'm sorry that your table wasn't ready for your arrival. We have an email from yourself requesting your booking to be brought forward to 2.30pm which is when we'd expected you to arrive, so when you arrived at 11.30am, I'm afraid we were unprepared. If there was some correspondence we had missed where you'd requested this time I can only apologies. Our staff did the best they could on the day to get your table ready as promptly as possible at such short notice. I'm disappointed to read that you found our servers inattentive. I can understand how frustrating it must have been to request your table be cleared on numerous occasions. I'll be looking into why the service was slow on the day and carry out some training with the staff. I'm so pleased you enjoyed the food though, and I hope you managed to have a good time with us overall. We hope to see you at Drink, Shop & Do again soon.

It was nice enough but nothing special. Both myself and the people i met there have been a few times previously and this visit didn't live up to our expectations. Limited selection of salads(2) some sandwiches/rolls . It seemed to us that only one person was working there, managing the entrance/bar and seating area. It was far from busy which was fine for us and possibly the lady working there. I think underwhelmed is the best word, which is a pity as we've enjoyed many nice times there.

The food and style of the venue was amazing! The service wasn't great and as such we weren't able to start our 2 hours until half an hour after we were due to. The next group arrived and needed there table, which means we were asked to move. We were kindly given a complimentary drink to make up for it, however what we all really wanted was another bagel.

It was really great! the Bagels were good and the persecco and bloody Mary's were delicious. However I didn't like the down payment for the reservation. It made it really hard to divide the bill as it was taken off of the total bill . Also there is no mention of a service charge on your website. We had to pay an extra 20 pounds for service .

I came here for the bottomless brunch to celebrate my birthday with a few friends on Saturday 22 July. The food and drink was great. However, one of our waiters/ bar man was quite rude. He wasn't very welcoming, and when it came to the end of our two hour time slot, he came over to us and simply said "you need to leave now". Very rude. We then had to reply asking for our bill. There was no please or thank yous, he just seemed a bit fed up really. On the other hand, one of the waitresses was very pleasant, very happy to serve us and every polite.

I have been wanting to come to drink shop do for about 3 years so went for my 30th but because I had boys, decided the Lego would be the best option. I had pushed out rervations back slightly but our table still wasnt ready on arrival so we had to wait 15 minutes which is fine but then I felt that the robot wars is misleading on the website as we were just given old Lego to build something with after a half hearted explanation that we had to write about our robot to win. Not exactly the battle I was hoping for. The Lego didn't have much to go on and feel this needs updating with characters and more interesting pieces. We were told we had table service but this was very slow and the waitress seemed indifferent. I had to chase our orders 4 times and kept finding her chatting to a hen party. We then had to ask to be judged as we felt like we have just been forgotten in the back room. I'm sure that the other activities may be more interesting but I would not rush back for them after the level of service. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-07-22

Not terrible but wouldn't go again. Couldn't toast gluten free bread for a coeliac and waitress wasn't particularly apologetic even though this had been specified twice in the booking. Food service was a bit slow and generally overpriced for what it was. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-07-23

Reply from Drink Shop & Do

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback about your visit. We were aware of the gluten intolerance, as indicated during booking. After speaking with your server, they have informed me that on the day your guest indicated the severity of their gluten intolerance. Although we do offer gluten free bread the toasters are used for both gluten and gluten free items so we cannot guarantee if toasted the bread would be free of traces. Due to the severity of your guest's requirement she did not wish to risk making her unwell. Again I am sorry for any lack of clarity on the day. I'm disappointed to read that you found the food service to be slow. I've relayed these comments to our kitchen manager, who will be looking into how service could have been improved on the day.

The idea was great and the venue was lovely. However, I felt the organisation of it all was lacking a bit, I'm not really convinced what made it worth the money. We booked in for the clay making session and upon arrival weren't even shown to our table but were left to find the one with a mound of clay. I say mound of clay, there was the tiniest amount each, definitely didn't seem like £8 worth each. We also had to chase up whether there were any tools we could use to sculpt. We weren't offered anything to take our clay home in either, I had to ask if we could use takeaway food boxes. In summary I think it was a lovely idea for an activity and people did get into it but it definitely wasn't worth paying for, I could have done the same, or better, by doing it at home and just buying in some clay from online. A bit more of a friendly host for our activity/the venue as a whole wouldn't go amiss. The website makes it look like a really fun and lively atmosphere but we were just left on our own and it seemed like no one there cared. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-07-07

Overall really great experience. The dome room was a good size and fitted our needs well. The staff were friendly and accommodating. A couple of small things: there was background music piped into the room randomly throughout the day. It wasn't a major problem so we didn't mention it to staff but another group might not have liked it. The lunch was lovely, really tasty and good quality, however there was a couple of times I asked if missing parts of it were coming out, to be told they were just coming, but after 10mins I'd have to go and ask again. Not a major problem but would have preferred to be told you'll have to wait 15mins in the first place, then I could have planned around it. Like I said though they are really small bits of feedback and overall I was delighted with the venue and the whole experience. Thank you! Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-06-28

We had several tricky dietary requirements which was no problem at all! The flower headband session was excellent, very helpful lady, and they looked amazibg for the rest of the hen do!

Service wasn't great for the first hour or so. We had to wait over 10 minutes to get our first drink (considering there were so many staff standing around not serving and you only get 2 hours of unlimited prosecco) and had empty glasses for a bit each time we finished one before they were topped up again. Also the only meat option for the bagels wasn't available and there was no substitute. After the first hour things picked up and the service was lots better. Overall, it's definitely a worthwhile deal, and very good value. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-05-21

Food good. Service not great. Went to celebrate my birthday with a large group (18) as bottomless boozy bagels. Whilst the bagels were good quality, we had to keep asking for refills of bagels and prosecco more than 5 times. We received no egg mayonnaise bagels. Additionally the cake came over to me with an unlit candle and the waitress seemed surprised about it and asked us for a lighter. I would recommend this place for small groups and not in the back room as it's isolated. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-05-21

Pros - Lovely spacious venue. Quick responses from staff when booking. Great selection of drinks. Good value. Great central location. Easy to find. Cons - very loud music in the context of a drinks party with no dancing or dance floors. We were unable to hear each other speak even when standing close. We asked the dj to turn it down with no response (bearing in mind we were a private party in that area). We asked the dj and management to turn down the music for 2 minutes so we could toast friends who couldn't make it - he would not turn it down low enough for me to be heard. Very disappointing.

We visited on Saturday afternoon as past of the hen doo package and what an afternoon it was! Everything was great, from the ambiance, the food, the games, the staff and of course the unlimited prosecco! Thanks to Tali and Coralie for a great afternoon! Adele Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-05-13

Our experience was great, with a few very small minor points. I'd phoned DSD & they knew we were a Hen party, but the area was set up in 3 individual tables. Quickly amended, but a shame. The bagels took a fairly long time to come out. In regard to the last order, we could have eaten and ordered another in the space of time they took. Otherwise it was all still great, and regardless of that, we had a great chilled enjoyable afternoon there! Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-05-06

Do was great, tuition was attentive and simple. All really enjoyed. The brunch was disappointing there was long gaps between food and drinks being brought, we had to keep asking and still had long waits. It spoilt the brunch because of this. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-05-06

We were left quite disappointed by our Afternoon Tea Hen Party Booking. It is worth noting that a majority of the party arrived 20 minutes late for the booking, so this may have had an effect on how the experience played out. Firstly, I booked table decorations and a banner with the bride-to-be's name and these were not provided so had to request they were removed from the bill. Once the full party had arrived we were rushed into making the craft straight away. It was never explained to us how to event would run or when we would get drinks or food. No drinks were offered; we thought we would be getting pots of tea so no one went to the bar to buy anything additional. It would have been nice to have the tea served while we were crafting. The host leading the craft seemed distracted, perhaps looking after another table at the same time as us. She kept leaving us unattended so we would finish one stage of the craft then have to wait for her to come back to show us the next part, which meant that we spent a long 2 hours doing what should have been a quick and simple craft. We also had to wait for a long time for anyone to clear the craft supplies from table when we were finished as she hadn't come back to check on us. Perhaps incorrectly, we assumed that the afternoon tea would be served at the start of the booking so no one had eaten lunch prior to the arriving. The food was actually not served until half an hour before the end of our booking, by which time everyone was ravenous. I had to find someone to ask whether we were even booked for afternoon tea as we felt completely forgotten about, and was informed that we should have specified when we wanted the food and drinks served prior to the event. No one had requested I do this. The quality of the food and drinks was pretty poor. I will say that the scones and brownies were lovely but the sandwiches and other cakes were not, especially the vegetarian selection (sorry, but a sandwich filled with only mashed beans is not tasty). Even after receiving the food we still were not served the tea and again had to find someone to check on this. All in all, the service was very slow and sloppy, the food and drink was disappointing, the host was not attentive and the whole experience was a bit of a let-down on what should have been a special occasion. Definitely not worth £45 each and a shame to spoil someone’s hen party. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-05-06

The selection of games available during the Bottomless prosecco, bagels and boardgames session was limited and some were broken. We wanted quick to play games like guess who (broken) and connect 4 (only one available between everyone), they had lots of monopoly but it's just not feasible that many people will play that in a 2 hour period. More games please! Otherwise the service was good and we weren't rushed to leave which was really nice. Staff weren't particularly friendly but no complaints. We would come back and do something else there. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-04-30

We came for bottomless brunch to celebrate a birthday and the afternoon was more than we could have expected. The service was AMAZING- everybody was so friendly and went out of their way to make our experience great. The bagels were delicious; the choice of toppings were small but they had been chosen carefully for a full range of flavours and dietary requirements. The prosecco was on tap with rapid refills. We can't thank you enough, we'll be back for sure and so will our friends! Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-04-29

We were thoroughly disappointed with the evening. No member of staff welcomed us properly and explained the evening or interacted with anyone at any stage – Not even to judge. When we arrived, all there was were plastic containers with pieces of Lego and pieces of paper. For £8 a person, I am struggling to reconcile what this charge was for and how it can be justified and should be refunded. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-04-25

Tucked down Caledonian Road near Kings Cross is this amazing bar-come cafe-come activity extravaganza! Drink Shop Do is a one stop shop for fun, laughs and quirky evenings. An eccentric array of workshops ranging from card making, pinatas and even tea-biscuit decorating. I also recommend their bottomless brunches as the bubbles or bloody mary's are flowing and bagels are unlimited! A 2 hour sitting of creative bagel toppings that are suitable for a variety of dietary requirements left me nearly needing to be rolled out down the stairs. I didn't want to leave as Drink Shop Do is full of friendly staff and delicious food and drinks. Whenever in doubt of where to find a place to drink, dance and create a random craft head to Drink Shop Do for a laugh! Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-04-23

I enjoyed the bagels but it was definitely a struggle ordering them and keeping the Prosecco topped up. For some reason, the person serving the bagels gave us dirty dishes twice. We had to flag the bagel server down both times as the first set of plates we received to eat from had soggy biscuits holding them together and the other set of plates had water drenched squished bagel and bread holding them together. 50% of the cutlery and glassware we received wasn't clean either but we decided after the plate fiasco to just check all dishes that were brought to the table. There was one amazing server/bartender who made and did her best to make sure I enjoyed my birthday celebrations and her efforts were greatly appreciated. (Her efforts are why I have put three stars instead of 2!) The bagels were tasty also... just the service (except the one server) and cleanliness weren't great. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-03-25

Thanks for taking the time to feedback to us, it is always appreciated and very helpful. The condition you were given those plates are quite frankly shocking and I am in the process of finding out who served you on that day (if you could describe them it would assist me in narrowing it down as we have a rather large team) as we agree it is completely unacceptable. While we are investigating this, I would like to invite you down for brunch for you and a friend. on us. We would love the opportunity to change your mind.

Overall the internal feel was cool and quirky with lots to look at and I enjoyed the ambiance however staff power lacked somewhat when it came to ordering food and drinks.

I had to walk over and ask for service, they weren't very friendly. The vegan cake was so dry I had to ask to swap it, and the second one was equally dry. Disappointing as the last time I went the cakes were great. Would recommend getting a new supplier! Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-04-21

Reply from Drink Shop & Do

Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that your server wasn't very friendly. Being a fun and welcome is one of our core values, so this is really saddening to hear. I'll be carrying out hospitality training with the staff. Thank you for bringing this to my attention. We have also moved over to bar service during the week, which might be a change if you have visited us in the past. Still, we ask our servers to make guests aware upon entry, so again, I apologies if this wasn't made clear and caused any unnecessary waiting. Would you but do you happen to remember what flavour the cake was? We have quite a variety of vegan cakes and a few suppliers so it would greatly help us so we can give feed back to the right supplier. Thank you again for taking the time to offer your feedback, we very much hope to see you at Drink, Shop & Do again soon.

Booked a table for birthday drinks and nibbles in the upstairs area. Music was super loud and sound system was terrible. They moved us to the entrance area. We could finally hear each other but table was small for 10 people. Anyway, we were very happy they could change this change last minute and the lady working there was lovely and very helpful. One of the bartenders had no idea how to make cocktails. We were also served a 60£ champagne bottle not cold. Food was a disaster £95 for a shared platter that honestly, not worth more than £30. Very disappointing experience... Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-04-21

Thank you for taking the time to give us feedback, it is always greatly appreciated. We are sorry that you felt the music was too loud, we do always try to keep it at an ambient level until about 8PM on Fridays and then have it slowly increase in volume to try and get an atmosphere going but In this case it seems we misjudged it. Could you describe the faults with the sound system? Im sorry the party platter didn't meet your expectations, is there anything you think it was lacking that could have improved it? In light of this, we would like to invite you back, if you are able, for a cold bottle of champagne and a cheese board on us.

Once again it was a really fun night at Drink, Shop & Do. Downstairs the music was fabulous and we had a wonderful time decorating our crowns. Fab idea!! 🙏🏼💕 Unfortunately people had taken over our table to decorate their crowns. By the time we arrived our table looked like an absolute mess. Also, upstairs the music was quite loud and not 80/90 pop rock as promoted. but overall, super fun night. 🙌🏼 Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-04-21

I booked a table for 4.30pm for my birthday, we arrived at 4.20pm and were told our table would be ready in 'a couple of minutes' and someone would come to collect us. At 4.40pm we were still waiting. I asked again at 4.45pm, when a lady pointed upstairs and said yes it's up there. We found our own table and had to wait until 4.55pm before we got a drink. The bagels were slow and we consistently had to wait a considerable amount of time after asking for a drink top up. We felt like the staff were reluctant. On two occasions we were also brought the wrong bagels. A waitress, who I must add was probably the most helpful, accidentally spilt tomato juice down my beige coat. We were told it was our last order at 6.20 (when we hadn't sat down until 4.45 nor received our drink until 4.55). Overall, the main lady who helped us at the beginning was quite helpful but with this exception, it was a disappointing experience in a place I had chosen after much research.

I booked a space for a birthday celebration. We had board games and lego. It was very well organised and the staff are super nice and friendly. The atmosphere is really chilled and quirky. I would highly recommend it for group bookings. The dancing area is also really fun, so actually, also great for a night out. Overall, ace experience! Thank you, Drink, Shop & Do.

Came here for the bottomless brunch as part of a weekend in London for my partners 40th. I had emailed ahead to let them know it was my partners birthday and they had decorated the table with a chalkboard sign saying happy birthday and there was a teacup filled with sweets, it was a really nice touch. Service was great, bagels were lovely, they even brought my partners first bagel out with a candle in it. The only tiny criticism that I have is that I found the selection of games to be quite limited and in poor condition. Our party wanted to play scrabble and although there are loads of boxes of scrabble, we had to open about 5 before we found one that was complete and once back at our table, realised that the scrabble tiles In the bag came from about 3 or 4 different sets. It's not a big deal but think they should update the games. However, it was still a great experience and we will be back. Visited Drink Shop & Do on 2017-04-02
