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

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
