Part of a complex that includes galleries and office space that houses, among others, the Guardian and Observer newspapers, Kings Place's main 420-seat auditorium opened in autumn 2008 with a wide-ranging series of concerts that often span a week and are curated by a series of different musicians. Although Kings Place will be the permanent home of both the London Sinfonietta and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, there's also jazz, folk, leftfield rock and spoken word on the bill – some performances using a more flexible, subsidiary 220-seater room. There are decent food and drink options too, with the Concert Bar, Green & Fortune Café and a more serious modern British eatery, Rotunda, all under the same roof.
