Owner's description

Tucked beneath The Phoenix Theatre lies our charming escape from the London norm. Our lively and nostalgic theatre bar & Restaurant is located in the original dressing and rehearsal rooms of The Phoenix Theatre where Laurence Olivier made his debut in the 1930s in "Private Lives" with Noel Coward & Gertrude Lawrence. The restaurant is led by Celebrity Head Chef, Robert Kusy. 

With fascinating signed posters, paintings and pictures from decades of theatre productions, a restored art deco interior and hidden treasures in every corner, there's something new to see on every visit, and you never know who might decide to give an impromptu performance!
