Struggled to get a spot in the bar beforehand as it was so busy, but good lively atmosphere. Theatre is certainly more on the intimate side, but that's surely not a problem! Tickets etc. easy to pick up.

Visited to see The Lounge, a great play set in a care home. 97 years go by in a flash, an afternoon lasts an eternity. Its our future! The Soho Theatre Bar is good for pre show drinks and also a bite to eat.

We arrived early for the production so popped into the bar for a drink. The barman bravely made his first ever cocktail for me, and seemed over generous with the measures. Not to many seats in the bar, but everyone was prepared to share tables....More

Watched Alan Carr here, they do occasionally get well known warm Up shows so keep an eye open as theatre is small but that means close to stage / close to the acts and good location

This theater programs an excellent range of work with three unique spaces for stand-up, studio work, and a more traditional but modern headlong space. It occupies a relatively quiet road for such a busy and exciting area and the bar is a great place to...More

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

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.
