A nice little venue to watch comedy. I arrived early to pick up my ticket. The bar was a bit busy so I wondered around and found a place to eat before returning for a couple of drinks. With several performance spaces in the same building I was expecting a certain degree of chaos, but this wasn't the case at... More

I absolutely love the Soho Theatre! There is always a wide array of events happening with touring acts from around the world. I've seen world class cabaret there, I've seen ground breaking theatre there, I've seen Eddie Izzard perform there! Whatever you choose to see her its almost always guaranteed to be good and all of the different performance spaces... More

The entrance and bar areas were very hot and crowded but that is to be expected on a hot, sunny evening in Soho. We collected our tickets quickly with no problems. The Tiger Lillies were in the main theatre, which we had not visited before (there are also an 'upstairs' and a 'downstairs' studio, which are small and 'cosy'). We... More

I go here regularly for theatre and now to have a drink in the bar too. Becoming a really pleasant venue, mixed crowd, universally friendly and helpful staff and even decent real ale.

Small, intimate little venue. The service at the bar needs a lot of work and until that improves, I’d advise drinking somewhere else beforehand but other than that it was alright, good place to see comics trying out new material. We saw Paul Chowdhury who was pretty freaking good!

Staying in Soho

Neighborhood Profile
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.
