King's Cross bars and pubs

Find the perfect place for a pint or a cocktail in King's Cross

Rob Greig / Time Out

After decades of being a hub for travellers, King's Cross is becoming a destination in its own right. Case in point: the number of bars and pubs in the area. Bar Pepito it an Andalucían sherry bar and VOC is modelled on a seventeenth-century punch house.

Think we've missed a great drinking spot in King's Cross? Let us know in the comment box below.

Critics' choice

To sit in, or to sit out? Inside, Sir George Gilbert Scott’s lofty interior; outside, you have a nearly ceiling-level view of St Pancras International station.

Bar Pepito

Critics' choice

Tucked away in a courtyard accessible via an alley at the foot of Pentonville Road, this rustic, Andalucían-themed bar is dedicated to sherry.

Big Chill House

Critics' choice

This London bar continues to earn acclaim from fans who are inspired by the artwork and tickled by the signage (‘brothers’ and ‘sisters’ on the toilet doors).

St Pancras Champagne Bar

Don’t let fatuous claims about this being the longest bar in Europe spoil what is a lovely pre-travel experience: glass of champagne in hand and tickets at the ready.

From Fluid Movement, which brought us Purl and the Worship Street Whistling Shop, VOC occupies a smallish, cosy space in one of north London’s most restaurant-intensive precincts.

Simmons

Venue says: One of the best happy hours in town! 4pm-9pm, Sun-Fri. Beers, wines and spirits at £2.50, a bottle of wine or two cocktails, £10. Plus more!

This now evening-only DJ bar still attracts a studenty, music-savvy crowd to what looks like a cross between an old-style corner newsagents and a Shoreditch-like retro bar.

Queen's Head

This site was once a tawdry, tired and transient tanking house showing big-screen sport, but it’s now been transformed into a great little neighbourhood pub.

Harrison

In Clerkenwell, this place would almost go unnoticed. Here, amid a Legoland of housing estates and shops catering chiefly to custom from the Indian subcontinent, it’s practically miraculous. Comprising a simply furnished room of stripped wood and tables occupied by after-work regulars, this corner pub enjoys considerable local status for being a smart but unpretentious spot for a decent pint, a natter and a Sunday roast. Früli, Timothy Taylor Landlord, Erdinger, Amstel, London Pride and Staropramen pour from the beer taps lining the long bar counter, staffed by friendly foreigners. Festival tables outside offer extra seating on sunnier days. Standard gastropub fare is well put together and fairly priced.

King Charles I

Hidden from the outside world, this homely pub provides rare ales, many whiskies, a roaring fire and the day’s papers to the surprisingly few regulars who frequent it.

We had a really good night at a brand new bar called Drink Shop Dance. Its in what was the sex shop under Drink Shop & Do in Kings Cross (one of my favorite places). I'd say its kings Cross' best late night venues, definately worth checking out!
