Where to find your free March issue of Gasholder


We look at how Coal Drops Yard morphed into what it is today. Plus all the usual food, nightlife, travel and arts reviews and previews



We’ve keenly followed the reincarnation of Coal Drops Yard through a mothballed decade. What will always be known to a certain generation as the home to legendary night clubs Bagley’s, The Cross and The Key has now emerged scrubbed up, gleaming – and open to the public once more.

In 2014 site owners Argent granted us a special tour, where we encountered rooms frozen in time, awaiting construction to begin on the retail project, complete with radical Heatherwick-designed curvy roof.

The new issue out today

Having snapped a raft of historic photos that day, in the new issue, out today, we revisit the exact same spots five years later, to see what a few million pounds-worth of reinvention can do for some old Victorian railway-turned-rave infrastructure.

The picture above shows what was once the famous outdoor terrace of Bagley’s, the place for a merciful breath of fresh air from the sweaty main room. And nowadays? Well, you can see what we did.


LOCAL ADVERTISING

Elsewhere in the issue, we check out the latest new openings in King’s Cross and beyond, give our verdict on the star-studded new West End production of All About Eve, pop to Richmond to check out the revamped Bingham Riverhouse – and count down the 7 hottest things to do this month.
