The Little Door & Co – hosting London’s ultimate house parties for 10 years and counting

First throwing open the doors to their homes 10 years ago, The Little Door & Co brings its authentic house party to the city, this time in the heart of Carnaby – and everyone’s invited. Expect kitchen discos, late night cocktails and good vibes, along with a touch of flat envy, at The Little Violet Door.


Providing a genuine house party experience, The Little Violet Door is unpretentious and relaxed, whether you want sip cocktails on the sofa, dance in the living room or play games with friends. It follows in the footsteps of its naughty Soho sibling, The Little Scarlet Door, and neighbourhood favourites The Little Yellow Door (Notting Hill), The Little Blue Door (Fulham) and The Little Orange Door (Clapham); each famed across town for redefining the House Party genre.

The party lives on in the former home of the iconic music venue Bag O’Nails — once frequented by legends like Elton John and Paul McCartney. This two-storey flat captures the essence of Carnaby’s rich heritage and hedonistic spirit, with impeccably designed interiors drawing inspiration from the 60s, 70s and 80s.  Friendly and welcoming, house party guests are encouraged to mix and mingle – come with three friends and you may well leave with 10!

Behind the statement Violet door, complete with vintage knockers, there’s a myriad of rooms to discover. The very heart of this home is the kitchen – the central hub of all good house parties and where the disco magic happens. DJs will be spinning the decks, amongst pots and pans, from the renovated turntable kitchen island from Wednesday through to Saturday, so don’t forget your dancing shoes and, for extra accessories, head for the dressing-up box and rail.

There’s plenty of space for chilling and chatting too, from the outside terrace through to the ground floor sitting room featuring a statement vinyl bar, plush velvet upholstery and a fire to sit beside. Or, for a more discrete spot for spilling secrets and selfies, venture to the bathroom complete with tub, robes and other bath accessories.

Guests can also grab a seat downstairs in the games room and get competitive over a whole host of games from What Do You Meme to Mario Kart, whilst the spacious living room – overlooking the kitchen disco – features comfy sofas, colourful artwork and coffee table books.

The attention to detail throughout is second to none, from the door keys and discarded shoes at the front door through to framed pics of friends, family and pets, ornaments and vases, creating a distinctive lived-in feel unique to Violet’s location – after all no two house parties are the same!

From teacups to tin cans and milk bottles, cocktails are served in home essentials and draw inspiration from the flat’s expansive DVD collection. Creative concoctions include La La Land (vodka, raspberries, Martini Rosso, and Mozart White & Vanilla); and Kill Bill Volume 2 (Remy Martin VSOP Brandy, Bacardi Negra and Toti Dark Rums, ginger syrup and Camden Pale Ale), served alongside Little Violet Door’s house punch.

Classic finger-friendly party food runs the gamut from nuts, crisps, olives, dips and crudites through to sharing champagne buckets of panko fried chicken, tacos, pulled brisket croquettes and burgers. For daytime dancing, The Little Violet Door will be serving bottomless brunch every weekend from July with dishes like shakshuka, bagels, avo on toast and granola smoothie bowls.

Looking for an authentic, homely and unpretentious environment to host a party of your own? The entire flat along with your favourite rooms are available for private hire, providing the ultimate contemporary house party setting, without the dreaded post-party clear up.

The Little Violet Door is open from noon daily seven days a week until late – house parties will never be the same again.
