‘Eat dirt and die, trash.’

Feather necklace

If you’re feeling flush this pretty brass and rhinestone necklace isn’t too much for a self-gift.  If not, ask Santa and see what he says.

Apothecary bar

New destination bar, House of Wolf, looks like an apothecary and the barmen like pharmacists mixing up weird and wonderful concoctions in their white coats.

Cocktails from £8.  Open until 4am.

House of Wolf, 181 Upper Street, N1 1RQ.
