I was invited to do a review on Kings Cross Hotel. It was an easy choice to make because it is literally two minutes from where I live. I’d recently been to the hotel for another event so was already familiar with this popular Kings Cross venue.

When I walked into the bar I asked for Ross who was managing that night, and he happened to be right there at the time. I warmed to this guy, he obviously has a very busy job that he handles brilliantly and made me welcome. I decided to do this review on my own rather than bring a plus one, because it’s a nice casual environment and I sometimes like just hanging out at a bar on my own. In 2011 I travelled to New York and I had a fear that I had to overcome, and that was to be able to go to a bar on my own, as a single woman and not feel self conscious. New York took that fear off my shoulders, as I made a concerted effort when I was there to do just that, and I did!

As it turned out I didn’t have to dine alone because Ross joined me and we chatted away about what I do and the hotel. Ross didn’t actually get to finish his meal (pictured) because he was buzzed a number of times and duty does call. I stayed on and ate my tacos, which is the Wednesday night “Weekly Dinner Deals”. The truth is I didn’t actually finish them, I just ate two because I’m a small eater, I wanted to continue eating however I have a rule that once I’m full, no matter how delicious the meal is, I stop. I did enjoy a glass of bubbles which is only $4.50 in happy hour!
