Went and saw an excellent show, the venue is easy to get to being behind kings cross. There is food available but given that it cost £6 for a bottle of beer you will probably need to re mortgage. The venue has a decked outside area overlooking the canal. And some very expensive flats. The eg net was in hall... More

Kings Place is 'the' place for contemporary art and music. Hall 1 hosted a great concert by the Labèque Sisters and Ubunoir this evening with music by Moondog, David Chalmain and pieces by Katia and Marielle. The highlight for me, though, was the first item on the program, Philip Glass's Four Movements for two pianos. This was a fabulous performance,... More

Our first visit to Kings Place was for a concert held in Hall One, which is one of the two auditoria at the venue. A short walk from Kings Cross station it is well sign posted and easy to find. We initially had a drink in the Rotunda Bar. This is very scenic with a view of the Regents Canal,... More

Went to see a gig in their Hall 2. "Doors at 8" means "Musicians start at 8.01", which was a refreshing change. You can take drinks into Hall 2 but not Hall 1. The downstairs bar had a good range of slightly pricey drinks (£5.5 for Sam Smiths 7% Imperial Stout), though be warned that if you order bottles of... More

Good venue for a chamber concert, found it tricky to get something to eat at the cafe ( wheat free).

This was our 4th year of visiting this festival at Kings Place and it gets better every year. Perfect venue, well organised and a fantastic variety of talented singers. Roll on next year!

I was delighted to have front row seats for the Martino Tirimo's Schubert, The Great Works Piano Concert last night. I didn't know the pieces but when you see him cast a spell over the entire audience, creating such emotion from the piano all without one single sheet of music, it didn't matter, I was hooked. It's amazing that this... More

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
