Drinks and Views at The Lighterman

Riverside drinks and summer vibes
Written by: Amy Gatt

One of my favourite places to work from is The Lighterman in King's Cross – and with good reason.

  1. It’s close to my house
  2. It overlooks the canal
  3. It turns into a Kings Cross party hub at 5pm

On one of these incredible summer days we’ve been having recently where it was simply too much of a tragedy to be in the office – I decided to visit The Lighterman to get some work done.

What I had forgotten was that the summer holidays had started. Upon arriving at The Lighterman, all the fountains were on, families had congregated around them and children were running around splashing in the water opposite. Thinking the bar would be super busy was well, I rushed in to find a table.

Thankfully no-one wanted to be inside on a day like that, so the bar was mercifully free. I sat at a tall table near the bar (important) with a decent view of the canal (also important). I only ordered Diet Coke as I was working (my dentist will not be happy) buy my advantageous spot near the bar meant I didn’t have to interrupt my work too much.

As it started to get closer to 5pm, more and more people started queuing at the bar and it started to get a little crowed, and by the time it got to 6pm, it was clear I wasn’t going to get any more done. I packed it in for the day , and decided to go meet a friend of mine for drinks instead.

I will for sure be back at The Lighterman, for another breakfast meeting or just a day out of the office.

    I feel so blessed again in my marriage after Doctor ODUMODU brought back my husband that separated with me for one good year. Am ALENNA by name from ROMANIA. Even though i have mouths all over my body, it wont be enough to thank Doctor ODUMODU for his help upon my life. My husband separated with me for one year and have been in pains and agony without him. So, i searched for help everywhere but nothing worked out not until i meant Doctor ODUMODU. I explained my situation to him and he promised that my husband will get back to me within 48 hours as far that my heart still beats for him. I believed in him and he prepared a husband called me exactly when Doctor ODUMODU saicompelld. He pleaded and said he needs me back and now we are living happily again for the past 9 mouths. Everyone out there reading my article that needs help should contact ALSO HAS THE CURE TO THE FOLLOWING VIRUS. 1* CANCER CURE 2* HEPATITIS B 3 DIABETES CURE 4* RINGING CURE 5* STROKE CURE 6* WARTS CURE 7* HBP CURE 8* PREGNANCY DELAY 9* PENIS ENLARGEMENT 10*HIV CURE
