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.

We were lucky enough to get Kevin Bridges work in progress . Very small theatre so was nice and close felt like a proper comedy club. And Adams Bitter so all good ☺

We saw Nina Conti and Monkey at the Soho theatre (very reasonable at £16 a head) - the bar was rammed when we arrived to collect out tickets 1/2 an hour before the performance and we waited for that full half hour in a queue for seats as the theatre is not allocated seating but first come first served -...

Good choice of beer - Adnams Pale Ale very good & had Lagavulin on the whisky front . Reasonable prices. Very friendly behind bar and in basement. Relaxed venue in basement with bar - in fact didn't find the comedy last night funny - but venue was great.

Booked Susan Calman which was in the basement room - its small and intimate with a bar and toilets on the same floor. A great venue and handy to the night life of Soho......bars and food. it has its own café/food available but we did not have time to sample. Ticket prices were very reasonable for central London. Do look... More

The soho theatre was quite surprisingly cosy and nice. It has a good bar with sofa's and normal chairs. Its got quite a lot of space but becomes packed out towards show time. Its a small theatre. The view was great actually as we managed to sit at the front with the table and I should imagine that you wouldn't... More

I saw Pyjama Men here which was surreal and very American but funny enough. The theatre itself is divided into an upstairs and a downstairs where they have two different things going on at the same time. The downstairs section is typically grungy, rough and ready in appearance with a small stage and ad hoc seating. Very intimate. The bar... 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.
