Open from early until late every day of the week, Spiritland is a space for great food, drinks, music and good vibes in the heart of King’s Cross.

By day, Spiritland is a casual, welcoming café with exceptional coffee and great brunching and lunching, serving delicious breakfasts, Allpress coffee, teas and seasonal food with a nod to the great delis of New York, as well as Italian osterias.

By night we move seamlessly through aperitivo, dinner and cocktails serving late into the night alongside an ever-changing and inspiring music policy played on our outstanding and unique sound system.

Amazing place to sample simple food well done, great drinks in a recording studio atmosphere, DJ, low lighting, great place for a great night out.

Great evening at Spiritland, loved the music balance of being a feature but also allowing for conversation. Food was delicious, especially the bbq chicken.

Two of us attended for an evening meal. We are audio engineers. So very much looked forward to this experience. But it wasn’t quite as good as we had expected. The acoustics of the building are far from ideal. The music sounds extremely muffled (I appreciate this is subjective). It felt like a bit of a let down if I am completely honest. Everything is quite expensive as well.

Lovely place for a drink or a bite to eat with music. Friendly service. Good selection of gins. Good beer. Good vibe. Good music and nice and cool (air con) and spacious on a hot evening ... everyone else sat outside. We did only have the almonds with a drink but I love them. Have eaten here before and the food was excellent.

Great food, service was excellent and we were given a lovely table outside instead of at the bar. Music was also top notch.

Amazing food and venue, have been before and really love the vibe and the food is delicious, but sadly had quite bad service this time. We had to really make an effort to get served, and then a couple of times things didn’t arrive. when we arrived it took about 20 minutes to even get given a menu despite requesting one twice. Was a special occasion and this slightly marred it. There wasn’t a set server so it all felt a bit muddled.

I recently had brunch at the Southbank location, which I enjoyed very much.
I was very disappointed with the Kings cross venue. The service was terrible and the it felt cramped. Not what I was expecting at all.

Working in the music industry, Spiritland is a frequent hot spot whether for food, drinks or a simple coffee meeting.
We booked it for a business lunch and had really flavoursome food. Not super filling so I'd recommend you order sides too, but it was delicious!
The atmosphere is usually pretty chilled and the service is friendly and efficient.

Have been here a few times now and always love the atmosphere. Great tunes on a custom speaker system in a beautiful setting. Not a place to come for a meal more for drinks and nibbles. Definitely worth a visit!

The staff are abrupt and the management rude .. if it’s wasn’t for the amazing dj’s and outstanding sound I would never entertain a pretentious soulless venue ..

Excellent food and music and the ambience was incredible however the service was a little in attentive taking a while to take our order and hard to catch attention to get the bill, easily rectified though and we’d definitely come back!

Service was good, food nicely presented but not plentiful. Ambience was fine, but the music was slightly loud for the size of the room and number of people (busy Sunday) found myself having to use a rather loud voice to be heard!

Within 5 mins of sitting down, Grace Jones was thumping through the speakers. No better way to start the weekend. One minor niggle... could you put a veggie hot sandwich on the menu? X

It was an ok experience. The food is overpriced for what it (£8.50 for a toasted slice of bread with some guacamole and a tiny egg?) and we the menu not exciting at all.
However the (young) staff tried their best and we could sit there for a long time without being bothered.
Nice atmosphere and good music. Just not a food destination.

Overall great place, love it. Only issue I’ve had the last 2 times I’ve been is the service. Sometimes orders didn’t turn up, were wrong or just took far too long. Hope it improves because I’ll definitely be back.

It was all very lovely ! The place itself is effortlessly cool, the atmosphere is nice and relaxed without ever being boring, the service was unobtrusive yet efficient, the manager, Josh was very nice and friendly . It was my birthday and my guests kept arriving in small groups , arriving and leaving in a constant wave of mini groups of 3-6 at a time ; food was top quality and even the quality of the white wine I chose ( a nice Gruner Veltliner) was outstanding. Can’t wait to visit again
