About Phoenix Arts Club
Tucked beneath The Phoenix Theatre lies our charming escape from the London norm. Our lively and nostalgic theatre bar & Restaurant is located in the original dressing and rehearsal rooms of The Phoenix Theatre where Laurence Olivier made his debut in the 1930s in "Private Lives" with Noel Coward & Gertrude Lawrence. With fascinating signed posters, paintings and pictures from decades of theatre productions, a restored art deco interior and hidden treasures in every corner, there's something new to see on every visit, and you never know who might decide to give an impromptu performance!
Non-members welcome by reservation made online, on the phone or by email. Subject to availability.
Pre-theatre Menu 5pm - 7pm - 2 courses for £15
By securing a restaurant reservation, you and your guests are granted temporary membership to The Phoenix Artist Club for the duration of your visit.

Had a birthday dinner here with 10 people. Service was terribly slow even though the restaurant was not busy at all (4-5 tables maximum). Between being seated and receiving our mains it was nearly 2 hours. The staff left our table unattended for 45 mins, we had to wave down a waiter for more water/wine. Food was fine, albeit bland, but the wine was cheap and we enjoyed the show tunes from the man on the piano.
Loved it. Food was very nice and good portions and a lovely ambience. Have already recommended it to friends.
Staff hugely welcoming and really professional. The food and service were better than most. Our waitress was exceptional. Got us out 15 mins before showtime. The room is wonderful. Perfect pre-show setup - could not ask for more. Thank you
Wonderful start to our evening at the theatre seeing the amazing Come From Away. Delicious food and great staff. Planning another visit.
Great pre theatre get together. Thank you!
The chicken Kiev is the best that I’ve ever eaten.
When we arrived for our meal booking there was an issue that meant we couldn't get the table straightaway. The restaurant manager was extremely apologetic and compensated us with a complimentary drink. We were very happy to feel well cared for, and all the staff were charming. I really enjoy coming to the phoenix artists club, and recommend it to many people. Thank you for a wonderful evening.
Wonderful atmosphere, great service and really good food. A fabulous first evening eating at the Phoenix. We'll be back!
Think the Phoenix is a place just for drinks? Think again! We did but thought we’d check it out for dinner. When we arrived the doorman knew my name as soon a I said we had a reservation, we got downstairs and the staff immediately Guessed my name and showed us to the only empty table in the house. The place was really busy, turns out Friday night they have 2 live pianists playing everything from Billy Joel to show tunes and it is pretty raucous! I think we were the only people coming for dinner which felt slightly weird but we didn’t regret it one bit. We both had a marinated lamb rump with figs and garlic yoghurt and veg and it was cooked beautifully and totally delicious. A bottle of wine and desert later we were singing along with the rest of the club. The atmosphere was fantastic and so entertaining, not one for those looking for a quiet romantic conversation but definitely fun. I’ve always loved the Phoenix as a bar but now it’s definitely in my ‘places to have dinner in soho’ list. You should add it to yours too.
Fantastic food, great value for money.
Truly dreadful. Service awful. Ate there before concert at Phoenix Theatre. Ordered two course evening supper. Had to endure a full fifty minute wait between starter and main course. Only served after searching out and complaining to three different members of restaurant staff. Utterly clueless. A place to avoid.
I brought two friends who said "What a discovery!!" Nice the way we were offered a table in back room as we wanted to chat without music too loud. Nice, interesting menu, cooked well. Slightly too many inquiries re how was our meal, from three different staff. But overall it's excellent value for money and a great atmosphere. A London gem.
Excellent food and entertainment.
Booked having looked at reviews for places with entertainment in London. Had one of our best evenings in the city here. The food was very tasty, the service was great. what made the evening really memorable was the duelling piano entertainment - a couple of hours of singing along to greats tunes. thanks all - will definitely recommend and come again
Great!! We comeback as we are back on citytrip in London. Delicious experience, compliments to the chef en dining the food!! Grtz. Sam & Joyce Belgium
Another fabulous night at one of our much loved places to wind down. Thank you to ALL the wonderful staff who worked so hard to make our evening so enjoyable. The music and food were fantastic!!
Great food, great services!
Great food at very reasonable prices. Unique venue in the West End.
I love this place. It was very noisy that night and the staff were overworked but it is after all the holiday season. The food is always good and the people there the best.
Lovely evening, thank you
Amazing place for a pre/post theatre meal - or a great al a carte menu. So well looked after and food was amazing especially for the price. Main bar was busy with a booking so staff moved us into the restaurant space - thinking about our welfare from the start. Thank you Phoenix Team Then came back after show for nightcap and ended up staying till 12:30pm Fantastic
Great menu, service and food was delicious. Loved our time here again. Thank you
