Enjoy the music forget the Rotonda
Oct 2021
Excellent concert shame about the Rotonda.
The Brodsky quartet were excellent. Having had three glasses of wine beforehand ( over £40) we booked a table for 6 for dinner. A mistake. A hamburger rare and a hamburger well done arrived exactly the same colour ,dark gray and so tepid the cheese had not melted, charged at £19.50 each. 3 people choose beef strips over salad, this arrived, the large portion at £22 each on an eight inch plate with lettuce undressed,topped with a few strips of cold cooked beef and some Parmesan shavings. Thinking the waiter had thought they ordered starter portions they called him back to be told that these were main course sized. Well after that we quite got the cold shoulder. The sixth main course was grilled cauliflower. With one pudding and one cheese plate three bottles of wine this feast cost £303.

Brodsky Quartet
Oct 2020 • Solo
Typical quipped the viola player that we had all been waiting for this concert originally scheduled for March then three came along at once. Such was the popularity of the Brodsky’s late Beethoven system that not one concert with numbered limited to preserve social distancing took place today at 2pm but repeat performances at 4pm (the one I went to) and again at 6pm as well as live streaming. All credit to both quartet and King’s Place for such resourcefulness in these dark days. And what a tragedy that the shutters are likely to come down on live performances soon for at least a month. Fortunately these performances of Beethoven’s (last) Op.135 quartet with the Op. 133 Grosse Fuge preceded by a Fugue from Mendelssohn’s Op.81 were not only worth waiting for but to savour and remember in the weeks and months ahead. It was also good to visit King’s Place again although apart from the Rotunda bar and restaurant where a televised Scotland v Wales rugby match was in full swing it was eerily quiet particularly in the foyers where the Pangolin gallery had hung prints mainly by British sculptors. Their ground floor gallery had a few visitors though.

A hidden gem near King's Cross
Feb 2020
Kings Place is one of those places that is not obvious, yet is only or 10 minutes walk from King's Cross Station. Perhaps when all the redevelopment has been completed, it will be more joined in to the rest of the area. Today it is slightly apart, but worth investigating for its programme of concerts and other events, its restaurant overlooking the barges in Regent's Canal and Battlebridge Basin and its excellent programme of visual arts organised by its partner gallery, Pangolin London.

When opened in 2008, King's Place was the first major multi-use new arts venue since the Barbican was built in the 1980's. I visit mainly for the arts programme, which includes the Kings Place sculpture trail, changing changing exhibitions in the lower level public spaces - the most recent being 'Nature Unwrapped' with artists such as David Mach, Charlotte Mayer, George Taylor and Bryan Kneale illustrating their different views of the beauty of the natural world, linked to a programme of concerts and other events following the same theme, - and the Pangolin Gallery itself which, on a wet grey February day, was showing the versatility and variety of work by the British sculptor Jeff Lowe.

All in all, an enjoyable visit, including a snack lunch in the cafe area, reminding us of one of the many stars of the London cultural scene which are temporarily closed due to coronavirus.

The Great American Songbook
Mar 2020 • Friends
Had a wonderful evening listening to Rob Rinder narrate the rise of the American Musical Theatre and film industry and the moguls who came from nothing and rose to fame.
Fascinating stories and wonderful music from a great jazz trio.
The Rotunda is a great place to eat too and Kings Place is the most brilliant venue.
Aren’t we lucky living in London?!

No dogs please.
Feb 2020 • Couples
A lovely place to chill. Excellent salads made at Green and Fortune café.
My only question is why are dogs allowed to come in, walk around the food, sit on seats, bark? Surely this a place where we can be dog free for once.

A modern concert hall
Apr 2019 • Solo
Enjoyed a concert with Yeol eum Son the Korean classical pianist. Good accoustics and seating in a modest sized modern concert hall. Easily accessed from Kings Cross station. Also has a good cafe/restaurant.

The seats...
Dec 2019 • Solo
Seats in concert hall incredibly uncomfortable, stark contrast to rest of King’s Place. Be prepared for stretches and physio if you brave it...

Excellent conference venue
Nov 2019 • Business
Close to Kings Cross station this is a very modern architecturally interesting venue. Glass fronted with lots of public and arts spaces its large and good for networking. The venue staff were very friendly and helpful. The cloakroom was especially efficient. The Halls were good for listening to speakers and the seats were comfy. The coffee and lunch stations were very efficient at the breaks. Plenty of toilets and they were clean.

Easy to get to from Kings Cross and St Pancras the venue is smart with good eating and snacking facilities. It is delightful to sit outside with your coffee overlooking the canal. The concert halls have good acoustics. The staff are helpful and you can leave your luggage at the cloakroom during the concerts. Lots of cafés and bars nearby with some novel shops just across the road
