Hidden away from the hustle and bustle of King’s Cross, underneath the colourfully decorated Megaro Hotel, is Megaro Bar. As soon as you enter the hotel’s restaurant Karpo, you go down the stairs and leave the noise behind as you are welcomed with velvet curtains and dark walls. The whole feel of the venue changes, it has a real speakeasy feel to it, dim lighting and an intimate layout make it perfect for a date.
The bar greets you as you enter, to the right is a general seating where you can relax and order food on leather sofas and intimate booths. To the left is the Picture Room which has on-going exhibitions adorning the walls, currently it features a London skyline at sunset by London based artist, Henry Thomas. The Picture Room is also where the film noir nights takes place, featuring a wide spectrum of classic films screened on a hidden plasma TV, they also host master classes, poker nights and private events.
Our favourite cocktail from the menu was the Lavendar Hill Mob Fizz-gin, lemon, lavender gomme, Zedda Piras and soda. The chestnut soup from the Chef’s Plates is also a must have, if you ask especially nicely you can even order food from the restaurant down the bar.
