Places & Faces

Granger & Co, Kings Cross

Aussie restaurateur Bill Granger took a piece of Sydney side into his third and largest London restaurant, Granger & Co. Bringing sunny relaxed vibes and a matching laid back menu to a fitting piazza location in the Kings Cross neighbourhood. Offering up some well known classics to fans of Bills while adding a multicultural blend of flavours and textures to lucky diners all day and night.

The interiors simple design with minimalist decor shows some 1970/80’s railway ristorante influences obviously inspired by it’s location right near Kings Cross Station.  Its large glass facade and thoughtful materials make for a spacious, bright and airy feel that’s super chic yet relaxed.

You’re welcomed by a row of brass based leather diner stools high up on a deliciously pink salmon tiled bar giving you the perfect resting place to take in the pink terrazzo top and brass trim. Subtle lighting choices, discrete down lights, a variety of well selected lamps and 1970’s brass lamps running along the bar are perfect.  Surrounding the room are soft leather olive green banquette seating accompanied by rosa aurora marble tables, above, a chic gallery selection of bright and cheery artworks on a restrained precast concrete wall.  

It’s worth a good look at this cool, classy and contemporary restaurant opened in 2015 as an early example of a current wave of anti grey and white interiors.  It demonstrates an awesome selection of rich materials working together in a display of beautifully considered colour.  Interesting and edgy design with a slightly quirky personality, ultimately an interior to make you feel good.
