Went to see the Tiger Lillies and enjoyed the bar downstairs with pizza open windows and atmosphere. Then discovered a great cocktail bar upstairs. Will be returning even if I'm not seeing the show.

What an amazing venue this is. You can feel the presence of the music hall performers from days gone by. It is soooo atmospheric. The bar has such a nice feel to it and the pizza is delicious.
