Barnsbury

“My wife and I live in Barnsbury, just north of King’s Cross. It’s basically an 18th-century village within the city: tree-lined streets; elegant Georgian terraces. I love to sit in the lush green park at the center of Lonsdale Square. The neighborhood is set to be a new style hub: Central St. Martins art school, which Mike Leigh and Stella McCartney both attended, just moved to a new campus here. Large Glass (392 Caledonian Rd.; 44-20/7609-9345), an art space that hosts convivial openings, is a must, as is the Booking Office Bar (pictured; Euston Rd.; 44-20/7841-3566; drinks for two $30) at St. Pancras station, which is now a Renaissance hotel. It’s grade-one Gothic splendor, this vaulted room with paneling all the way around.” —Ben Evans, director, London Design Festival
