This story is connected to...Drink Shop & Do
9 Caledonian Road Islington N1 9DX
Founded by two old schoolpals, Drink, Shop and Do (DSD to its friends!) is a Jack of all trades to Kings Cross's nightlife, and a master of all! Located on Caledonian Road, DSD is the perfect spot to indulge in shopping, activity classes and delicious cocktails under the same roof. So, after already falling head over heals in love with the place, we hear it's now only gone and had a revamp! The vintage sweet shop as was, has been replaced with a stylish spritz bar which refuses point blank to sell anything other than aperol and campari spritz’s, and who are we to argue with that logic!
The Spritz bar decor features celestial blue and mustard colour themes, with hand-fringed chandeliers, comfy bar stools and quirky posters (which you can buy if you really like!) completing a look inspired by the films of Wes Anderson
Although this bar only serves aperol and campari spritz’s, you may like to know that both the upstairs and downstairs bars continue to offer a full menu of cocktails, wines, beers and champagnes. During the day, you'll also not go hungry, with a happy menu of soups, stews, frittatas and salads if you’re peckish.
There’s a pretty chilled ambience to the place during the day - it’s proven quite a popular hangout for anybody looking to escape the office and do some work - and in the evening it’s a good place to kick-start the night before carrying on with drinks and one of the Lego Robots, Papier Mache, Lionel Rich Tea DO’s! With DJs and dancing ’til 2am on Friday and Saturday you can pretty much live your life right here.
