A brand new martini lounge has opened in the heart of King's Cross.

The drinks menu features creative Anthracite twists on martinis, alongside classic martinis, plus a selection of timeless and more unusual cocktails.

Surprisingly quiet on a Wednesday night, very good service, and light and airy feel due to large windows. Pretty comprehensive wine list, only snacks eaten but good quality. Very quiet and great for a catch up with friends when you don't want to stand and shout at each other.

Excellent and atmospheric. Only one problem - too dark to read the menu!

We had come to meet friends for cocktails who had arrived on the train from Yorkshire. Cocktails were fantastic and the ambiance amazing.

Early in Anthracite's career and so the bar was quite quiet on a Sunday early evening. Cocktails were excellent as was the service. The vibe will crank up as more people get to know about Anthracite. We enjoyed the environment and will return.

One round of cocktails was made with the wrong spirit (tequila instead of vodka)... the Barman refused to accept the fact (without tasting the drink)... quite a heated exchange to get the drinks remade. Not ideal when you are paying a premium for the drink.

Went there few days ago and was pleasantly surprised with this hidden gem.
It was just a bit difficult to find the hotel entrance but overall, i loved the martinis and will be going back there soon.
