warning - most plays and events are only about an hour so the cheap price is probably not quite the bargain it looks like but that said, I would recommend as it is quality and doesn't take up the whole evening leaving time for drink and food and discussing the play/comedy!!! would recommend!!!

The upstairs area at the Soho Theatre is a really great venue for about 120 people. We saw the Opera-Up-Close production of 'Carmen' there last week - and were completely blown away. We really were up close and the power of those classically trained young singers was truly an unforgettable experience. You really felt part of the action and when... More

Attended a comedy play for one hour last night. The perverts. That was the name of play. Play was excellent. Theater staff were ver attentive. Drinks are reasonably priced and the vibe was out of this world. I will definately go back

Went to see Puddles Pity Party which was excellent. However the venue is much to be desired. The bar, although service was quick, was obviously pitched at boho types and was shabby chic. For me I don't like bars which use chip board/MDF style walls and are decorated with old leaflets and posters and have garden chairs for seats. It... More

I have just seen Lampedusa at the Soho Theatre. Great venue and bar in the heart of London's West End but I was really disappointed by the writing because it was 2 monologues alternating with each other and the most engaging element was the eye contact the two actors made with the audience. Drama and theatre are about the interaction... More

Went to see Diana Chorley- Duchess of Camden show. we were in the downstairs theatre and it was well organised with sets of chairs around small tables. The staff were friendly and helpful and the bar had many different beers and wines

This is a fantastic venue for seeing mainstream and lesser known comedy acts at affordable prices. Over the years I have seen many comedians here, such as Phil Jupitus, Micky Flanagan, Josie Long, Frankie Boyle, Shappi Khorsandi, Nina Conti and Jack Dee amongst others and have never been disappointed. This particular time it was David Baddiel and whilst it wasn't... More

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
Soho
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighborhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
