VOC is a bar and restaurant tucked under an archway in King’s Cross. A 'gem' capturing the feel of adventure and discovery. We're named after the Vereenigde Oost-Indische, also known as the Dutch East India Company which, from 1602, enjoyed a monopoly of the Asian spice trade. We’re excited and proud to introduce our new small plates alongside our decadent, barrel aged cocktails - both inspired by the spice routes. Our bar and restaurant has gained recognition from well-known publications and have been featured as one of 'London's most stylish bars' and the 'World's Top 50 Bars'. We're a 'gem' worth visiting and we welcome you to try our new menu and cocktails for yourself. We specialise in bespoke designed cocktails based on centuries old recipes brought up to date with modern mixology techniques. Our cocktails have been aged in wax sealed bottles and oak casks to ensure their richness and ripeness - to replicate the feel of 17th Century drinking. In keeping with our concept, the bar is filled with bottles reminiscent of delicious potions; cocktail barrels suspended from the ceiling, antiquated spyglass, huge church candles and exposed brickwork. Guests can enjoy a meal in the restaurant as decadent as the drinking experience. Our new menu builds on our concept of adventure and discovery. Diners can expect to be transported to different regions of the world with small sharing plates inspired by the spice routes. Sharing and communal dining was the focus of the meals eaten by those adventurers and our dishes are influenced by that era.
