Night owls can let loose in the swarm of King’s Cross bars that are buzzing all week round. Follow the local example and avoid the next day hangover by lining your stomach at The Somers Town Coffee House beforehand. Don’t be fooled by its name, the ‘coffee house’ is more of a British pub with a twist.
Start the night with a pint at The Queens Head or Bree Louise , traditional British pubs with impressive beer and cider collections, before breaking into next week’s units quota at Big Chill House , and having a dance off on their roof terrace (weather permitting). For something more introverted, hit Meltdown , a gamer’s paradise stocked with consoles, the latest games and plenty of booze. For clever cocktails, go to Simmons Bar for creativity or The Lexington for a mean whisky.
