About the Pub

Changed name to Upper House - so what follows (other than the impressiveness of the building) is likely to be out of date, relating to its previous incarnation.

Dead Dolls House began as a ‘pop-up’ in Dalston, temporarily moved to Hoxton Square before taking up permanent residence in this impressive three-storey Victorian townhouse. It describes itself as a multi-functional, multi-sensory experimental pleasure palace, dedicated to the creative pursuits of dining, drinking, art and entertainment. But not if you fancy a drop of cask beer! Visit the web site to get a flavour of the place. The Parlour bar situated on the ground floor is their public bar. The Dead Dolls House is part of East Born Project run by Gregory Barry, Morten Jensen, Darren Collins & Paul Harrington.
