The King's Cross stop for after work drinks, private parties and great cocktails happy hour is Be At One, on Caledonian Road. With minimalist interior as the perfect, cool background to your evening, a night that starts here is sure to be one to remember. The bar is also positioned conveniently up the road from King's Cross station for those missed trains and long waits. Book yourself a space now.

Right inside St Pancras Station, this pub is so conveniently placed you can pretty much hop straight from the bar to your train! And this pub doesn't just have convenience to offer, it's also a very special venue in it's own right. Decorated like an old manor house, the English heritage touches, hefty fireplaces and cavernous ceilings give it a very dapper feel. 

When it comes to a bar near Kings Cross, you don't technically get closer than inside the station itself. One of the most indulgent places to drink in the area, head on over to Searcys for Champagne, a smattering of oysters and a truly indulgent experience in a top, luxe space.
