Booking Office Bar

Posted on 2011/12/18 10:40:49 (December 2011).

[Tuesday 13th December 2011]
Went for festive drinks with the chaps from work this evening to the Booking Office Bar, which opened earlier this year in, as the name suggests, the old booking office of St. Pancras. Unfortunately Al, who had originally proposed the venue, was ill and couldn't come along with us, so we ended up as four - me, Andrew, Kyle and Iain.

I'm already a big fan of St. Pancras and this place more than any of the other eating and drinking venues in the station really seems to capture the appropriate air of grandness. Although the bar itself is quite modern, the walls have wisely been left more or less untouched, allowing you to enjoy the splendid red brick Gothic arches, and the overall effect works really well. The drinks weren't bad either - I had a very competent Negroni to start with, although the martini was perhaps a bit of a disappointment, being oddly served in a sort of wine glass rather than the correct Martini glass. Still, that minor niggle aside we had a fun evening.
