London’s Top Four West End Theatre Bars
A trip to London isn’t complete without seeing a West End Show. After the curtain falls, it’s time for a drink in one of the theatre bars.
The Grand Saloon on Theatre Royal Drury Lane has over half a million pounds worth of statues, so you can imagine it’s quite fancy. The bar also has one of those grand staircases that make you feel like you’re the main character in an old Hollywood movie. Grab a drink and play up to your imagination before you descend to the cobbled streets of London.
The Dress Circle Bar at the Gielgud Theatre has a brilliant mezzanine, the perfect viewpoint for watching people below. It might be a bit of a squash in there but it’s so grand that it’s worth it. Make sure you look up to see the beautiful chandelier twinkling away.
At the London Palladium you’ll find one of the most glamorous bars in the West End, the perfectly named Cinderella Bar. Ornate pillars, glittering chandeliers and even a little balcony to look out from makes this one of the top places to drink after watching the actors tread the boards.
The Terrace Bar in the National Theatre is also fancy, but with more of a modern twist compared to the others. If you’re in Theatre Land you’ll need to cross a bridge to get to it, but from the bar you’ll see the incredible West End over the Thames. Order a glass of bubbles and gaze across London out as you natter about the show you just saw.
