The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

    Great theatre venue with a number of rooms / stages and a large reasonably priced bar on the ground floor. Good place to meet pre show. Staff were friendly, helpful and welcoming.

    Fantastic friendly theatre 🎭
    I managed to book a last minute ticket this afternoon to see “Boy Parts” having read the book and the performance was excellent! I had a coffee in the bar before hand and the staff are lovely and the coffee delicious and recently priced. I haven’t been here in years but today’s visit reminded me why I should give it a chance again…would recommend!

    Perfect venue for a quick drink.
    I've been here with my daughter so new it was somewhere we could get a drink after seeing Mrs Doubtfire at The Shaftesbury. Very pleased to find alcohol free gin on the menu ad well as 0.05% wine. Well done not everyone wants to drink. Nice to be able to enjoy a drink and dance to ABBA.

    Tight seats
    This new theatre is beautiful and the ambience delightful. Charming staff and the coffee in proper cups. However I was sitting in the centre of a row on the first balcony and the leg room was dreadfully tight - worse than economy seats on a plane. My very tall grandson would not have fitted in. It was also very difficult for people to pass by and they were only coming in from one side. I am surprised that this is not a risk if anything happened it would be really slow to get out. The play was wonderful though.

    Could be better but ok
    The venue was a nice size a staff was smile. The neon lager average which in my opinion is not a good thing. I had balcony seet and they are not designed for people of 6'2, I was very uncomfortable and was heavily thinking of just sanding up at the back. I was disappointed there was no merchandise but I don't know who's fault that was. The show that I saw was amazing "puddles pity party" I highly recommend. The venue has good underground links.

    Shows for all.
    This is my favourite theatre! It's the best place to see upcoming talent and even sometimes people that are already well known. The talent is very diverse so theres always something that is bound to be showing that is relatable. The bar is great and the whole atmosphere is welcoming.

Superb Adnams beer, well kept and a really good choice!
Went especially as we are Adnams fans!
Service wasn’t that friendly, similar to a Wetherspoons, order on the app and have your drinks put on the table with no interaction from staff.
Atmosphere (or lack of) was also similar to Wetherspoons, no background music which would have been nice. All the lights off behind the bar (perhaps they are saving power!?)
We were seated on really uncomfortable 2 foot high wood stools and asked to move to a soft seated booth but were told no as the manager wanted these for groups of 6. In the two hours we were there no groups of 6 arrived and a lone drinker took one nursing his glasses of water and a member of staff on a laptop took the other free booth. Thanks very much! (Roll eyes)
Disappointing and not what you’d expect from a venue with Adnams associated.

Awful mismanagement of the ‘ Biswa Kalyan Rath’ comedy show on the 22nd Dec. I have two tickets which I bought weeks ago and now get a separate email asking to waive all my commercial rights to my image as the performance and specifically the audience will be filmed and images , video etc will be used commercially. If I don’t I cannot attend the performance. Feel sorry for the theatre goers who will simply turn up not seeing the email and be forced to sign a waiver before being let in , if they do not they will be asked to leave ! Asked for a full refund and token compensation as ruined my evening as I certainly will not be signing anything.

I’m sure the theatre will simply blame the act. Sorry not acceptable.

I have been to the theatre and accompanying bar many times and each time I go I have a great time.
Primarily I go to the bar, but the shows I have seen (despite one, when I walked out...) have been great, especially The View Upstairs and Bourgeois and Maurice.
The bar staff deserve a special mention as they are absolutely amazing. I'm a member here and they always remember me and are so utterly pleasant. As a member you get discount and a later bar, but, I've found myself coming just to have a drink as the atmosphere is so nice.

My friend kindly surprised me with tickets to see a brilliant selection of comedians. Although I had been to Soho theatre before, I have not been for a very long time due to the pandemic. It was actually quite emotional to return. It is a sweet little venue and recommend thoroughly.

Great venue for small theatre space events. The seating is well laid out and a decent view from all seats. Always something different and caters for all tastes in entertainment. Tickets are very well priced. The bar is buzzy and decent choice of drinks at fair prices. Staff are always well organised. Well worth subscribing as always something interesting on.
