Some of the theatre may not be for everyone, although still a lovely cafe/bar area to meet up with friends, or do some work in one of the cubicles.

The Soho Theatre is three venues in one really. There's the Soho Downstairs, the Soho Theatre (upstairs one level) and the Soho Upstairs (upstairs two levels). The events tend to be quite short, so it's not unusual for each level to have two events happening...More

Once again the wonderful Soho Theatre have presented a new work of political people power. There is always something poignant and authentic to challenge an audience on at this venue.. This venue is part of the force that keeps British theatre relevant.

We left Soho Theatre feeling absolutely robbed after attending one of their comedy shows in the downstairs bar. For £15 a ticket we expected this to be a night out, but all we got was one comedian who did a 45 minute slot. The over...More

Venue is good but the show by these two women was just awful. Remove “Penis” and “Vagina from the dialogue and you’d lose half the act. Some nervous embarassed laughs from the audience as they battered a model baby but we got up and left....More

Been here many times, it’s one of my favourite comedy venues in London. This time - for the first time - the show I was seeing (Kiri Pritchard-McLean’s Victim Complex) was in the upstairs venue. Yet another great space - oh and the show was...More

The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho

No need to pre-book drinks and a table. The area is a little small, but the bar service is good and people don't mind sharing tables. It's all part of being in London to squash up a bit.
