Owned and operated by Ambassdor Theatre Group (ATG) the Phoenix was designed by Giles Gilbert Scott and Bertie Crewe. It opened in 1930 with the premiere of Noel Coward's Private Lives starring the author, Gertrude Lawrence and Laurence Olivier. Many star actors have appeared at the theatre including Maggie Smith, Diana Rigg, John Gielgud, Dustin Hoffman, Derek Jacobi, Kenneth Branagh and Stephen Fry. More recently the theatre has presented a number of successful musicals including, between 1991 and 2012, Willy Russell's Blood Brothers which became the theatre's longest-running show and was seen by over 5 million people. The theatre is now home to the award-winning Broadway musical Once.

Good sized theatre that allows decent views wherever you sit (not a massive place so you'll get a good sense of closeness to the stage). Seats were comfortable and enough leg room. Toilets are very small so don't get caught short on arrival if there's...More

To be honest... not sure? We didn't drink in the theatre.. we had a drink before the performance in the 'Phoenix' bar next door downstairs in the cellar bar. So sorry can't help I'm afraid.
