The Cross

Description

Back in the naughty 90s, The Cross was one of London’s premiere destination nightclubs. It closed with the redevelopment of King’s Cross and the original railway arches it once occupied now belong to Tim Dixon at Coal Drops Yard.

The Cross has returned, just 10 mins away from its original home, now residing on Wharfdale Road. The venue offers much more than the original - it still has a basement club now with an additional, slick ground floor bar, plus a first-floor restaurant that takes inspiration from the Mediterranean with smart small plates and two beautiful lounge bars, The Barn and The Red Room. In addition to all that, there’s a roof terrace that offers cracking views and lots of plush banquette seating to recline in.

The menu in the dining room keeps things compact with a mixture of snacks, salads and Med-influenced plates. Dishes include crispy squid with a sweet chilli jam, pan-fried cod with lentils, spinach, garlic parsley and chilli and lamb cutlets with Dijon mustard and pistachio crust. For dessert, choose from a selection of ice cream and sorbets or maybe a white chocolate cheesecake with seasonal fruit.

The drinks list is similarly tightly curated, with an organic wine list accompanying innovative house cocktails like the Jasmine Aviation (Bombay Sapphire gin, lemon, violette and jasmine liqueur), hazelnut old fashioneds, and a selection of low and no-alcohol cocktails.

After dinner, enjoy the rooftop bar, or one of the opulent lounge bars before heading to the gritty basement club and party until the early hours.
