Description: 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.

I celebrated my hendo at Drink Shop Do recently and it was fantastic. We had afternoon tea (which includes a yummy bellini) and made 1950's fascinators. We then stayed in the evening drinking cocktails and dancing downstairs. The staff were friendly, the mood and ambience wonderful and vintagey and we all had a fab time. This place is pretty unique as it combines a relaxed quirky café by day with a retro hip bar/club by night. Only in London can you find such a gem...

Really enjoyed this quirky place and had a wonderful, relaxed evening making our screen printed bag. Air conditioned, which was a huge bonus in the hot weather and had a nice bite to eat. There are so many workshops and fun things to do here that we wish we lived in London! Will definitely be coming back on our next visit to the big smoke!

Fabulous Afternoon tea, great tea, great snacks, and awesome hipster, vintage vibe. At night, this joint turns into a bar/club as well.

Everything. Do then fun activities, meet hip people, eat cake.
Groovy spot, even cooler staff. Upstairs is light and bright, nice and airy for tea time, and downstairs is a brilliant night time bar, with fab music, and fun stuff to do--besides dancing.
Go ahead! Drink, Shop, and DO!

I liked the vintage atmosphere of this venue close to Kings cross station. I was here as part of a hen party that started with a cream tea in a reserved area upstairs and ended on the dance floor downstairs. The bar/club below is on the small side so it can get crowded. Good service. Worth visiting if you are looking for something different.
