SquareMeal Review of
Drink, Shop & Do
A ground-floor bar dedicated to Spritzes is the latest addition to this quirky multi-purpose venue that still has the spark to make it a King’s Cross essential. In the upstairs bar – converted from a Victorian bathhouse/ bordello – order craft beers, bargain vino or tart tipples such as a vodka and lemon curd Martini. On ‘Do’ nights, entertainment veers from musical bingo or dirty Scrabble dating, to communal classes in belly-dancing or nipple tassel-making. Weekend bottomless brunches and afternoon tea are also covered, and for parties the staff will put on a fancy spread of food and fishbowl puncheons. DJs set a different mood in both the bordello bar and the basement gin joint where you can bop to old skool anthems until late-late o’clock. Retail therapy is still part of the picture: anything that isn’t nailed down, from baubles to 1950s table sets, is yours for the right price.
