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. By securing a restaurant reservation, you and your guests are granted temporary membership to The Phoenix Artist Club for the duration of your visit.

We had a lot of small flies around us all evening which spoilt us having a relaxed evening. However as we had been before we didn’t want to leave and miss the entertainment. Our waitress did say they had an issue with fruit flies that they thought they had sorted. We had a discount on a bottle of wine, we’d still come back as we love it here hopefully flies will get sorted

Thank you for helping with a surprise birthday party for Darin on Saturday. As ever food, drink, service and entertainment were five star. We loved Myra Dubois and though we stayed partying into the early hours.

We had a great time for my wife’s birthday (11 of us). Music food and especially staff were fantastic. We are totally suppprtive of Pride - London was exciting - and Ginzilla, and other performers were excellent, but we thought a more balance of the original show time theme and Pride would have made the evening better. However we and all our friends had a great time and everyone said an evening to remember! Thank you!👌😊

A wonderful evening spent in the Phoenix Club. The pre-theatre meal was well presented and very tasty at a reasonable price. The pink lighting added a atmospheric hue to the quirky, vibrant, restaurant. We didn’t stay late but I’d imagine it’s buzzing every night with singers, great music and a place for a great night out. Would definitely recommend

The food was good although the service was slow I got my food but my husbands order was wrong it did come after about 10 mins but we weren't told how long it would be, meanwhile I didn't have any cutlery to eat with anyway. The entertainment was different to what I saw advertised although the singer was good the music requests tended to be monopolised by those shouted out with the loudest voices. I think rather than just this some form of written request would make it fairer.

We recently had a pre-theatre meal at Phoenix Artists Club prior to attending a show. The atmosphere was very relaxed and authentic musical theatre, particularly loved the wall of actor headshots. We were a little delayed by traffic and did not have long to eat before the theatre but our waitress was excellent and the food came very quickly. The menu was very traditional but the food was wholesome and we particularly enjoyed our desserts! Excellent value for money and a great start to our evening. I have already started recommending this restaurant to friends and family.

We had a great time at Open Mic night - a full on West End performance with the quality of singing, but while having delicious food and the best service. Our waitress sang too!

A perfect West End experience you can’t get in just any West End theatre, where you can sing and dance along to the talented and charismatic performances, all the while sipping on well-made signature cocktails, munching on delicious libations and wandering around the uniquely decorated and historic theatrical venue. Service was hospitable and enthusiastic and we felt right at home from the moment we stepped inside. This place has an unmatched energy, guaranteed to make you beam from ear-to-ear at every turn. My husband and I will certainly be returning on our next visit to the city, hopefully bringing loved ones with us to share in the joy.
