The National Theatre
The National Theatre has recently unveiled plans to radically expand its food and drink offering, including a brand new all day brasserie restaurant (HOUSE), an open-kitchen café and bakery (KITCHEN), a new craft beer pub with riverside seating (THE UNDERSTUDY) and an off-site venue called THE GREEN ROOM. The new relaxed restaurant, bar and garden has been developed by local social enterprise Coin Street Community Builders in collaboration with the National Theatre on an area of land behind the iconic building.
The Cut Bar @ The Young Vic
The Cut Bar is one of London's most popular theatre bars and restaurants. Set within the Young Vic over two floors this stylish bar and open-air terrace hosts an eclectic crowd of theatregoers, artists, suits and locals. A mix of classic and original dishes create an exciting menu from fresh, free-range and organic ingredients.
Carrara Restaurant, Bar and Brasserie @ St. James Theatre
Carrara is the first floor restaurant at the St. James Theatre, which first opened its doors in September 2012 becoming the first newly built theatre complex in central London for 30 years. The Carrara menu celebrates the best of British cuisine with an Italian twist, and the chefs use locally sourced, seasonal ingredients wherever possible.
With a great cocktail menu and quick and tasty food including burgers, bagels, pizzas or salads, the Soho Theatre bar is a perfect place to visit before a show. And they have a 1am license too!
This relatively new venue in Finsbury Park has craft beers on tap, cocktails on the menu and toasted sandwiches and sharing platters in the kitchen. A perfect spot for some watering and snacking before a show in either Park90 or Park200.
