Chose to eat here due to visiting Pheonix Theatre right next door so more time to relax and enjoy. A small menu but everything sounded tempting. 4 of us & all had different meals; all very happy with choices, everything was delicious. Attentive & personal service but not overbearing. Interesting venue, with lots of talking points. Really good value for... More

The Phoenix Artist Club is a real gem. We had pre booked on line a 5.30pm table reservation allowing plenty of time for the 7.30pm showing start of 'The Girls' in the Phoenix theatre above. We were immediately welcomed by the waiting staff who continued throughout to be both attentive and helpful. A nice glass of prosecco was presented whilst... More

Next to/ Under the phoenix theatre this is an ideal place to dine for pre-theatre dinner. I'd pre-paid and booked as part of booking seats to see 'The Girls', menu was around £18 a head and I considered excellent value for money. The ambience is excellent, walls covered in signed autographed pictures of past theatre artists. Staff are excellent as... More

Had dinner with a friendly native following a matinee, very impressed. Fab venue with loads of interesting theatre posters and the like, lovely cosy atmosphere. Attentive but not intrusive service. Small but interesting menu. Beautifully presented delicious food. Pleasantly surprised by the bill. A vast improvement on the chain restaurants we usually end up in! Will certainly visit again next... More

Lovely place! A big quirky and atmospheric with fantastic food and very good cocktails! My partner loved the duck dish and I really liked their baked goats cheese salad.

To be there: Phoenix space is very cool looking and cozy. You will prob have a sprain neck looking around at every poster on the walls showing autographs of famous artists on the show business. To eat there: Food was good and cook so nice and concern about our enjoyment he came twice to the table to chat about her... More

My first time here, as I was attending an event. The club has a wonderful, buzzy atmosphere and is atmospherically decorated with posters from historical shows and players. I didn't have much time, so after queuing for a while, took advice on what could be served quickly and opted for the platter of meats. I had to stand around and... More

After reading some of the reviews I though my wife and I could have a nice evening out. But this place does really disappoint. Overcooked pasta, meat they probably picked up frozen at the supermarket.

The Phoenix Artist Club - 'A hidden gem' - secreted away down a little side street (used in the opening sequences of 'Harry Potter') and tucked beneath The Phoenix Theatre lies this charming escape from the London norm.As featured in many films and TV Productions, Travel Channel's "The Layover" with Anthony Bourdain, written about by Rupert Everett in "Red Carpets and Other Banana Skins", visited by Princess Michael of Kent, Kiera Knightly, Jude Law, David Soul, John Hurt or Janice Dickinson to name but a few, inspiring screenwriters, authors and poets and refreshing worn out theatre staff from every London Theatre - you can perhaps understand why they want to keep us for themselves!We are the perfect antidote to corporate 'all the same' pubs. A private members club, open to the public and theatre goers for afternoon tea, group bookings or just somewhere to relax in old world charm. As the theatre lights dim and stage doors close, everyone that's anyone in The West End makes their way to 'The Phoenix' ( sometimes called 'shuts' because it never is!). You can join in the late night fun - simply produce your theatre ticket stub to Graham on the door - and if there's room - you're in!With fascinating posters, paintings and pictures from decades of theatre productions, much of it signed and donated by members, a restored art deco interior and hidden treasures lurking in every corner, there is something new to see on every visit - and you never know who might decide to sing from the shows or do an impromptu routine!Come on in, there is nothing like it in London - but - Ssh - it's a secret!!

Covent Garden
Whether you're headed here to check out the multitude of shops, theaters, cafes, pubs, and restaurants, or simply to be among the multitude of people who pass through this pretty part of town, you'll love soaking up the festive and historic atmosphere in and around Covent Garden. Even if you don't have tickets to the opera or a show at one of the many famous theaters here, don't be surprised if find yourself captivated by some impromptu act of a street performer wowing the crowds in Covent Garden's Piazza. If you do have tickets, you'll be pleased to note that many of the local eateries accommodate theatergoers with prix fixe menus, early dinners, and later than usual opening hours.
