Terrible. When we arrived we were told we no longer had a prebooked area. It was because we hadn't arrived within 30 minutes of our booking. But our booking was 9.30pm - 2am and at no point in any correspondence did it state this rule....More

From the front this looks like a little cafe, bit up the stairs into the main room and it's a different place. Terrific decor, gentle and non invasive (and really good) music. The service was attentive and the food was delicious as was the wine...More

Hello, Yes children are welcome during the daytime when we're much more of a cafe for lunch, tea & cakes etc. It is strictly over 18s after 7pm and this is when we run our events & DOs. Grace

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.
