Not another trendy wine bar... save the Cross Kings!

Rather gutted to learn that the venue where No Sweat has its comedy fundraising nights is... going out of business!

The Cross Kings on York Way, Kings Cross is tied into some sort of contract with Enterprise Inns (themselves in difficulty). I don't know the ins and outs, but Cross Kings owes back rent and has had the plug pulled on it. They are due to close this coming Friday!

The pub has two stages and hosts some sort of music or comedy event almost every day of the week, with great humour and patience. I'm guessing that in this area, which is being rapidly developed, the fate of the Cross Kings is to become some sort of a trendy wine bar.

We are having a last ditch effort to get a campaign to save the Cross Kings. Anyone who cares about this sort of thing could visit this link and ask Enterprise Inns to think again.

If there are any potential benefactors out there, please contact the pub straightaway. Telephone: 020 7278 8318. Email:

If we fail, at least come down to the last-night party this Thursday. The address is 126 York Way, London N1 0AX.
