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

PLEASE NOTE - The Phoenix runs entertainment with dinner from 8:30pm Friday to Saturday. Non-members will need to pre-pay per head when booking in our 'Dinner & Show' service times.
Phoenix Arts Club Members will not need to pre-pay.

Had a great meal here- pre theatre. The food was excellent- and far exceeded our expectations. The service was good- but we did wait a little too long for our main course... which was delicious- but left us a bit rushed to get upstairs got the show. Definitely worth a visit! 😊

We arrived 15 mins late to our booking but were assured that we were still able to get our meal in time for our theatre show. After enquiring where our mail course was twice, the food arrived at 19.05 and we had 15 mins to eat it before having to head to our show. Not a pleasant experience. We had to head back down to the restaurant afterwards to have our desserts and were able to stay for the performances.

Your staff are so lovely which is why we didn't really mind all the issues, it took us a while to get an order taken, our mains took an hour but when they did come, they were dry chicken Kiev, because I've eaten with you guys before, I explained this to the staff and upon examining the food, they replaced without question. Understandable it took longer to get the second lot out. The blonde Scottish waitress was really lovely and explained you had a lot of nice new staff hence the running issues. She hadn't realised the issues with the meal but comped us our sweet potato fries and a drink. I love your chicken Kievs! Entertainment was superb and made the night. I'm a top Google reviewer so will leave you a review there as well Thanks

We had an excellent evening. The staff were warm and welcoming. The menu was as expected limited however the food was of good quality. The entertainment was brilliant, really made the visit special. Would definitely return and have already recommended it to others.

I love this place for a pre theatre dinner and drink. Good atmosphere and delicious food. Always have to start with soup as I know it will be wonderful. Great value for money and service with a smile.

Another fantastic night at the Phoenix, best yet. Gingzilla was unbelievably talented, and her hanging from the Chandelier will live with me forever. Unbelievable food, great staff and an unexpected After party - took 10 of my friends for my birthday they loved it! Can’t wait to come back - thank you

Food portions were small especially the pork belly. We found the over head coloured light bulbs a little off putting whilst eating, we couldn't see what we were eating and the lighting gave the food a strange colour which we thought was a little tacky. Maybe keep the fun glitzy lighting for the bar / show area.

We didn’t enjoy the show at all. Not funny. Food is ok but they had run out literally everything we wanted... from order to desert which was rather annoying. Two positive points though: the waitress was nice and friendly and offered us our wine bottle in compensation and the music after the show was just great!!!
