About

Spiritland

Spiritland is a series of spaces for music lovers – a café, bar and radio studio in King’s Cross, a shop in Mayfair and a restaurant and bar at the foot of the Royal Festival Hall, all built around a deep love of music and the culture that surrounds it.

These venues were born from a desire to engage with music in the deepest possible way – to hear it as the artist intended, to connect with the emotions within, with food and drink to match.

The King’s Cross café and bar is home is host to a world-class Living Voice sound system – a unique creation playing in-depth musical programming along with talks, album launches. There’s also a full radio production suite available to hire.

The Mayfair Headphone Bar is a one-stop shop for the ultimate in personal audio, with headphones and players all ready to demo at leisure.

At London’s iconic Royal Festival Hall is Spiritland Diner, a spacious restaurant and bar where classic American diner fare is served up alongside a lively music policy.
