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

After hearing this reviewed on Front Row we booked tickets for Saturday night. This was an excellent production with all cast members putting on tremendous performances. The play was funny in many parts, dark in some, and slightly ridiculous in others. The bar was packed but staff were very good at serving, although drinks prices were quite high but then... More

Dracula is a brilliantly funny show and will have you crying with laughter. Have seen many shows at this venue and the productions have always been well worth the visit. The downstairs stage is worth a particular mention and the atmosphere there is always great.

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.
