Fancy getting in touch with your creative side? If the answer is “HELL YEAH” then Doodle Club is place for you
I’d heard great things from friends about Doodle Club so I knew I was on to a winner when I went there on recent date. I met my date at Kings Cross and to get the evening going, we started out at the Big Chill Bar with a few drinks and then set off to the doodle club to continue the evening of fun and frolics.
On arriving at Drink Shop & Do we were directed to the basement by an assortment of comedy signs. We were then greeted by the host of Doodle Club, the eccentric Mister Mumbles and he is crazy fun! He made us feel so welcome and helped to get our imagination flowing with his starter drawings that reminded me of a more warped and adult version of “The Anti-Colouring Book” (a drawing book I much adored when I was young).
On every table there was a pot of felt tips so which allowed us to get started on our doodles straight away. Meanwhile the table service provided us with some delicious cocktails, notably the Cutini and great music was spun on the decks by Mister Mumbles himself. The night’s theme was tattoos but Doodle Club has a different theme every month which is a good start for some inspiration if you can’t think of anything to draw at first. I do not have any tattoos but if I did they definitely would not be anything I ended up drawing (a shark on a penis?).
Drinking cocktails and doodling seem to go hand in hand which left me thinking that I should be doing this much more often. The evening was a relaxed one and most importantly fun!
Doodle Club is held once a month on a Thursday in the basement of Drink Shop & Do, a bar, restaurant, shop and nightclub all in one. It resides at the Kings Cross end of Caledonian Road and is a fantastically enjoyable and different evening to spend with your date. We highly recommend you go.
Drink Shop & Do also holds other nights including swing dancing, fun with Lego, musical bingo and much more so it’s worth seeing what’s on as it may be the ideal place to go for your date.
