Vinyl Cafe is based at Tileyard Studios, a creative hub in King's Cross. The location is great - a short walk from one of London's best-connected stations, while also maintaining an element of privacy.

The layout can be extremely flexible when hired, with seating for up to 80 people, or completely cleared as an open space. Perfect for anything from private dining to product launches.
The cafe features distressed but modern interior, exposed brick walls, dust pink booth seating and rustic furniture dressed with flowers and foliage creating a beautifully quirky aesthetic perfect for any intimate event. The space is hugely versatile, suitable for a variety of events ranging from an informal drink's reception, birthday party, private dinner, supper club, Christmas party or any excuse for a party. Situated all within the ground floor, the cafe accommodates up to 28 guests seated along one long table with plenty of room to socialise. 45 guests for a standing reception.
Perfect for live gigs, DJ evenings, parties & gatherings of almost any kind. The bar/cafe interior is unique, leaning towards a 70s theme with Haynes Manuals, spider plants, Angle-poise lamps, formica and 70s illustration.
