The venue is very good but somewhat stark, unless you really like minimalist decor. It doesn't lend itself to a vibrant atmosphere so it is more suited to classical music or theatre performances rather than rock and pop. The upper bar was really busy but i felt the drinks were pricey. Still, if you are not too fussed about that... More

Went to see a band in the concert hall.Venue itself is stunning.Very modern clean and minimalist. However this gives it a clinical air and not the sort of venue to generate ambience for a rock type show.Found the staff generally unfriendly and surly.Canal side bar again is stunning but beware no rails to stop you falling in the canal after...

I went on a Sunday morning while their festival was on and happily surprised that the cafe was in full swing with great sausage baguettes and coffee. A great place to hang out if you are early for a Kings Cross train - it's 5 minute walk and so peaceful. I have been to a couple of concerts there -... More

The venue is really not done justice by the photos online as the waterfront bar/cafe is absolutely stunning. The bartender knew to put an orange slice in our Blue Moon and was very polite, even though it was very busy. The 1950's style band was of a very good quality and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.

Obviously, your experience is colored by what you see there. Still, it is a good space, a convenient location (though tucked in a place you would never run across by accident) and they have good bookings. Besides, it is just relaxing to have a drink by the canal before the show.

Love coming here, and we do a lot. There's always something interesting on, the last thing we saw was a Kent folk band, and you can't beat the value (saver seats are £9.50). We go for a meal upstairs first usually, which makes a real night of it. It's never stressful; no matter how busy it is service is always... More

Went to see Jo Nesbo ( Scandinavian Crime Writer), speak recently at this fabulous Arts Venue. So impressed with this new addition to the ( once), very depressingly, dreary, unsafe, Kings X hinterland. Lots of art, music etc going on, with a restaurant and bars/ cafes, for indoor/ alfresco dining. Excellent meet up point and definitely be one of our... More

We have been attending this venue for a couple of years. It is found in a stunning building which also houses The Guardian and The Observer and is less than ten minutes walk from Kings Cross Station. As soon as you are inside it strikes as being dramatic and a place of style and substance. There is a café on... More

This is a great space in a great location. It is an excellent cornerstone of the regeneration project around Kings Cross. The room on the canal is great in a spring evening, and the staff are helpful and professional. The artwork and sculpture is interesting and sparks good conversation, and the coffee upstairs is good.

This a lovely laid-back place for singletons and families alike to relax by Regent's Canal. The exhibition space was airy and well-presented. Toilets were immaculate. Great venue to have coffee, a drink or have a chilled out lunch.
