Hot Flush! The Best Loos in King’s Cross

Where to enjoy the area's most luxe facilities when you need to go

There was a time, not really all that long ago, when nipping for a quick wee in King’s Cross would most likely involve an unsavoury variety of backstreet toiletry experience. We’ve flushed up a list of the best toilets in Kings Cross just for you.

Thankfully, as we all know, the area’s edgy vice and squalor scene of yore has morphed into one of the world’s most acclaimed neighbourhood reinventions, complete with a swish rash of cafes, bars, restaurants, shops and verdant public realm spots.

This thorough scrubbing-up has gifted Camden’s former inner city badlands with a proliferation of fabulous loos too, meaning a trip to N1C today should no longer entail any bladder-busting desperation or leg-crossing apprehension.

But where exactly do you find all these lovely facilities? And how might we avail ourselves of the pleasure? Read on and you’ll never be caught short for a top khazi in KX again…

šŸš½ Samsung KX

Samsung toilet room

A retail hub that doesn’t sell anything is the perfect place to nip in to for a quality waz, and Samsung’s coffee concession loos are always in perfect shape, with very posh toilet paper, to boot.Ā

šŸš½ Dishoom

We love the original Crappers at this note-perfect ye olde Bombay diner in Stable St – always worth spending a penny if you’re eating here, or just popping in for one of their famous bacon naan breakfasts.

With Tanoy hi fi speakers bringing the music in every cubicle, this high fidelity listening bar is almost as serious about its facilities as its sound system. (Spiritland)

A lovely juxtaposition of textured tiling, industrial tap fittings and moody lighting makes this bar/restaurant’s cubical-only lavs a winner.

šŸš½ CDY public loos

Some of the cleanest public loos around, these plentiful gender neutral cubicles are always handy on a day trip to Coal Drops Yard, particularly when enjoying the ‘beach’ of Granary Square fountains with diminuatively-bladdered kids.

šŸš½ Coal Drops Yard (back)

Borrowing from the Victorian railway infrastructure, these loos are a brickwork haven for anyone caught short while shopping or having ‘experiences’ in and around KX’s two main public squares (it’s right next to Vermuteria).
