The Lighterman King’s Cross

King's Cross Building

“The Lighterman pub, dining room and bar, is the brand new addition to the restaurant and bar scene at King’s Cross….The beautiful contemporary building is designed by this architecture practice and spans the eastern side of Granary Square. The interiors are sleek and industrial, with large open spaces, floor-to-ceiling glass windows and exposed concrete. The Lighterman is named after the workers who operated “lighters”, the flat-bottomed barges that were a common sight on London’s waterways in the 18th Century.”
