The Big Chill HouseFrom the outside, The Big Chill House building looks spectacular, a floodlit white townhouse that puts the grimy environs of King's Cross to shame. The interior is equally shiny, with three floors of New York-ish glamour - lots of cosy nooks, low benches and a cream and grey colour scheme. Odd bits and pieces from the Big Chill Festival add a quirkiness that sets it apart from the run-of-the-mill style bars. It's also far enough away from Old Street that it has a certain identity of its own, attracting dedicated Big Chillers rather than passing trade. A comfy terrace adds to the summery vibe. The soundsystem is excellent and (as you'd expect from owners who started out running festivals) the music policy is entertainingly eclectic.
