Whether your day calls for understated elegance, or golden decadence, Upper House makes a spectacular setting for any wedding reception. Inspired by stately homes its interiors have been transformed with monochrome hand illustrated walls depicting ornate frames and antique furniture. The gold table tops, velvet covered chairs and twinkling crystal candle holders add the finishing touches to a truly unique and glamorous location.



We had our reception in the ballroom and it was absolutely magical - the staff were great. I was well looked after, from the planning to the event itself. Thank you so much!!!! xxxxxxx

Great place. Lovely atmosphere too. We had a wedding reception on the top floor and I must say Simon the bartender was the HIGHLIGHT. Give that man a raise.

We hired the Ballroom for our wedding party in the evening as we had a restricted budget and wanted a relaxed space in a great location. Having searched so many sites and found so many prohibitively expensive venues, the Dead Dolls House was a gem, and...

We held our wedding reception at the dead dolls house and it was amazing from start to finish. From the first meeting with the events manager Emily nothing was to much trouble. Along with her team of staff there was nothing they couldn’t arrange or help...

We had a small wedding reception here. When we first heard the name were quite reluctant, but it surprised me and my husband both. Very nice venue and food, and very friendly staff.

We chose The Dead Dolls house for our wedding this October, its location is perfect for a wedding at the town hall. This venue is beautiful and hardly needs any decoration, we had an amazing time here and everyone commented on how great the quality of...

Everything went really well. Emily was really helpful during planning, and everything was prepared as discussed before. The bartender we had dedicated to the room was a star. She was super helpful and readily available to take orders. The food was amazing...

We had a very small wedding and wanted a low-key, yet stylish wedding reception. The Dead Dolls House was an excellent choice. Not only is it perfectly located for an Islington Town Hall Wedding, it is also a beautiful venue. The team were very accommodating...

We booked one of their rooms called ''The Ballroom" - The food was beautiful and delicious! We had our own personal bartender called Mike, he was so fast and his drinks were amazing! The staff were really helpful and kind. I recommend this place to anyone...
