Baby Bathhouse to open in Stoke Newington
The offshoot of a decadent City nightspot is to take root on the site of a burned down bar in Stoke Newington Church Street.
The Baby Bathhouse, a smaller sibling of The Bathhouse in Bishopsgate Churchyard near Liverpool Street Station, is set to open in the venue formerly known as the Gold Bar in March. The rear of the original bar was gutted by a blaze last March.
Organisers said the new nightspot would include a cocktail bar and restaurant on the ground floor opening out onto to a large garden terrace. Cabaret shows and rock ‘n’ roll performances will take place in basement.
The design will follow that of the Victorian-inspired Bathhouse with risqu� entertainment, including burlesque, comedy, literature, fashion and performance art.
But director Tava O’Halloran, who will be running the venue with Daniel Wright, said Hackney Council’s new ‘nil’ licensing policy of sex entertainment establishments would not apply to its displays.

“We live in the area and spend a lot of time in Church Street,” Tava told the Gazette.
“This is going to be really different to everything else. We have spent thousands of pounds on a really nice refurbishment.”
