GS Magazine has been located in Kings Cross since it was launched in 1997.
Back then it was near impossible to find a decent restaurant without heading into the West End or Mayfair.
Now the area has been transformed into a diner’s paradise with a wide variety of restaurants and eateries on offer.
To add to the list of superior offerings Happy Face Pizza has recently opened, located just a short walk from Granary Square in Handyside Street.
The restaurant space is light and airy with the kitchen counter and central bar clad in terracotta triangular tiles and topped in stunning Italian green marble with matching steel gantries.
The restaurant features an 8 metre bifold screen allowing the space to be opened into the main building foyer, which also houses the Everyman Theatre, to create a truly integrated space.
The basement contains Supermax and on entering, you are led via an elegant pink staircase passing the steel-caged beer cellar into the 1970’s design-inspired Italian disco and bar.
Framed in deep red leather banquette and deep red velvet curtains, the stunning bar is constructed in Dzek Marmoreal Black Terrazzo, while the shelving to the rear is in rich Sapele.
The acoustic-lined walls and impressive sound system ensure a fantastic audio experience.
Happy Face Pizza is operated by the team behind the wildly successful Spiritland and they appointed specialist restaurant fit-out contractors, Bluecrow Projects, to create these warm and inviting interiors within what was little more than a concrete shell.
It’s astonishing to think that this whole area was a wasteland of disused buildings and warehouses just a few years ago.
The regeneration is incredible, a brilliant mix of residential, shops, restaurants and offices. Little wonder that Kings Cross has become one of London’s most popular destinations.
