King’s Cross is one of the most sought-after parts of London when it comes to events, and for good reason. With a vast reputation that extends far beyond London, it is home to some of the city’s coolest venues, some of which we’ve featured below for your perusal.
The kind of atmosphere you can expect to find at Big Chill House is exactly as the name no doubt suggests; one of laid-back, fuss-free fun. This Victorian pub in the very heart of King’s Cross has pretty much everything you need for a successful event right under one roof, including delicious food and drink, plenty of great offers, free Wi-Fi and good music so that you can make the most of the dancefloor. One of the other selling points is the year-round terrace with its quirky, colourful furnishings and guaranteed good time vibes.
Looking over the gorgeous Granary Square in Kings Cross is The Lighterman – London’s new favourite pub and event space. With big windows, grey brick and geometric shapes, this stylish establishment is one of the coolest places to host a party or event in Kings Cross – or even the whole of London! You’ve got the pub on the ground floor, serving the best craft beers and burgers, and then upstairs: a more formal level used for private dining and cocktail receptions. Find out more right here!
Alphabet is a bar and restaurant found on the ultra-trendy Upper Street in Angel – not too far away from Kings Cross at all. Why do we think it’s cool? Well, just look at it! This light-filled open space can host a whole range of parties and events, with enough space for 150 people standing and 80 seated. You’ve got the main bar area that leads onto a small terrace too. Check it out!
Another cool venue in Kings Cross is Camino: the well-known authentic Spanish restaurant and bar, and perhaps, lesser known event space. In fact, it’s an ideal venue for anything from a private dinner to a wedding reception. The venue’s colourful decor and wooden interior creates a lively environment for your celebrations… and the food is pretty great too.
The Driver is a boutique venue that strives to deliver a combination of timeless elegance and top quality service. Catering for everything from small, intimate dinners to large corporate events, there are 5 separate spaces to choose from, including The Gastro Pub, The Penthouse and The Roof Terrace. These spaces can be hired individually, but full hire is also available for parties with a guest list of up to 450 people. King’s Cross station itself can be reached in just 5 minutes, keeping you well connected to the rest of London.
By day, Born Basement is a photographic studio and agency, but by night it can be transformed to suit a multitude of different event types, from art exhibitions and talks, to parties and demonstrations. A street access loading bay makes set-up much easier, as does the added bonus of having onsite parking which sits just outside the congestion charge zone. If however you are relying on public transport, then Angel tube station would be your best option, being reachable in just 6 minutes.
Omega Place is situated within a former bus depot. Original features from the building’s past have remained intact to bring unique character to the space, with other highlights including a 10x10m infinity cove, a large styling room, a private talent room, and a luxurious lounge and dining room. This premium serviced photographic studio also benefits from the full support of dedicated staff from Big Sky Studios, who will assist in the smooth planning and running of your event.
Hugely flexible, Egg London has 4 rooms with 4 outdoor spaces, meaning that events can be catered to for anywhere between 100 and 1400 people. This high level of versatility means that it can play host to all manner of different occasions, from conferences and product launches to fashion shows and live gigs, to name but a few. The spaces themselves are stylish and full of charisma, with the venue at large sitting just 15 minutes from King’s Cross St Pancras station.
