Had tickets for upstairs in the circle to see Bat out of hell. Comfortable seats with plenty of leg room. Good rake and good view in the seats we sat in. Nice theatre and an excellent show.

The performance of Bat out of Hell was spectacular! However, I did not like queuing at the ladies toilets for 10 minutes at the interval, due to not enough toilets!

The interval was 20 minutes. I didn't bother to leave my seat but if you wanted a drink you could pre book. Long enough for a toilet break if necessary!!

Resonably priced hotel near Dominon Theatre (1 Reply)
Im looking for a decent hotel at a reasonable price near to the Dominion Theatre however im looking for a triple room and seem to be struggling if anyone has any ideas it would be great to here from you. Many Thanks

The St Giles is probably the nearest hotel to the Dominion. Literally a 2 or 3 minute walk. They do have three bedded rooms and rates at the weekend are inexpensive but I would think the rooms will be extremely small and reviews are mixed at best. I think a bed factory is a fair description. Personally I think you would do better to look at the old fashioned friendly family run hotels in Gower Street and Bloomsbury Street such as The Morgan, The Ridgemount and The Arran House.

Live music? (4 Replies)
Hello, I am planning a weekend in London for my husband's birthday in September. We are staying near Euston Station and we are seeing a show at the Dominion Theatre one night. We love a night out but I'm not sure which areas to go to. We enjoy a relaxed pub/bar with live music if possible either in the afternoon or evening. Happy to travel to areas out with our hotel. Any advice much appreciated, thanks.
