Crafty new look for former sex shop | Islington

August 9, 2010

A retro craft shop, which doubles as a bar, has reopened permanently at a serially vacant lot on Caledonian Road, Kings Cross Local Environment reports.

Drink, Shop & Do was a hit as a temporary venture in December 2009, with its curious mix of cocktails, knitting and other craft activities, board games and vintage furniture.

On Saturday, the address which used to be a sex shop and originally a Victorian bathhouse, became part of  Caledonian Road’s burgeoning ‘cake strip’.  A calendar of craft activities will follow, pending the necessary licences.
