House of Wolf will sit in one of the City of London’s first listed music halls, a three-story, Victorian lair for pleasure seeking gastronomes. House of Wolf are encouraging an ethos of collaboration and creativity, experimental dining, drinking and live entertainment will be uniquely presented for the first time anywhere under one roof.
Firmly taking the pop up gastro trend on board House of Wolf will be the first venue to feature a permanent series of monthly pop-up chef residencies, showcasing some of the UK’s most exciting chefs and culinary artists.
Dining will take place in both the Attic Room and Parlour, with the latter available for private dining and with an option of additional bespoke entertainments.
Those wishing to partake in a tipple or two can venture to the House of Wolf’s Apothecary Bar which will serve experimental elixirs, featuring a cocktail list that combines traditional Victorian recipes with cutting edge preparation techniques. Alternatively, residents can kick back in the Wolf Den or enjoy the Music Hall which will, in addition to cocktails, offer a fully stocked bar featuring premium spirits, wines and beers.
To accompany these gustatory pleasures the House of Wolf will, in a nod to its music-hall heritage, present a programme of creative events throughout the week for discerning adults with an appetite for inspiration and ingenuity. From vaudeville cabaret and literary salons to performance theatre and creative fun-filled ‘get-on-down’ parties, the ground floor’s Music Hall will ensure residents are kept entertained.

They are joined by a third Director Matthew Fleming, who will oversee food and beverage operations, bringing with him his experience as former Bar Manager at Shoreditch House and General Manager for Proud Group. They have drawn together a team that includes Head Mixologist and Bar Manager Stephen Quainton, formerly Bar Manager at Soho House, Alexa Perrin, founder of the Experimental Food Society who will manage the schedule of guest chef residencies and Emma Sutton of Fuse Box Media who will oversee House of Wolf’s high profile events and parties.
