The House of Wolf

The House of Wolf in Islington is a vaudeville antique fest of decadent grandeur with live cabaret acts and the best-looking DJ duo in town, The Roustabouts. The decor was pleasure to my eyes: crystals, taxidermy, flowers, stained glass, and candles - amongst other delights!

It was a friend’s birthday that night with a fancy dress theme of the ‘20s. Everyone made an amazing effort and looked fabulous.

We drank fabulous cocktails and danced to the quirky old-meets-new-electro music and watched the very entertaining acts which featured a burlesque dancer, a musical comedian, and a hoop acrobat.

After the acts, D and I ended up dancing mock-20s-swing style (or our own idea of what that was!) on the stage by ourselves. It was lovely fun; pretending to be in the spotlight :’D

Near the end of the evening, our group somehow acquired one of the upstairs rooms just for ourselves. It was gorgeously dark Victoriana decor with long tables and mirrors.
