Turn onto Phoenix Street, off Charing Cross Road and you should spot the entrance to The Phoenix Artist Club and as Dick Van Dyke said in his best Cockney in Mary Poppins: “That there is what you might call a doorway to a place of enchantment.”
Descend the stairs to discover a unique Club that has the most eclectic membership in London but where you too can join in the fun. Our lively and nostalgic theatre bar was once the original dressing rooms and rehearsal space of the Phoenix Theatre where Laurence Olivier made his stage debut in the 1930s in "Private Lives" with Noel Coward and Gertrude Lawrence and to where he returned in the 40s and 50s with Vivien Leigh.
Still frequented by stage, film, TV and music stars (though we’re too discreet to name names) The Phoenix Artist Club has been inspiring performers, writers and directors since its opening in 1988, as well as refreshing cast and crew from all the West End Theatres once the curtain falls.
With fascinating original posters, paintings and pictures from theatre productions spanning over 120 years, most of them signed and authenticated, a restored art deco interior and hidden treasures in every corner, there is something new to see on every visit and you never know who might be there to give an impromptu performance!
The Brasserie at The Phoenix Artist Club is the home of 'Simple, Fresh, British Dining' freshly prepared, locally supplied produce, cooked with care and presented with price. Our local butcher, McKenna's, Hatton Gardens, is a much respected institution, faithfully serving families for years. Our family fishmonger is Nic Rascale, who personally delivers from his shop in Primrose Hill.
Pre-Theatre 'prix fixe' menu available.
We are now accepting Christmas lunch and dinner bookings and spaces are filling fast, so whether it's a group outing with the office or a Christmas meal with the family, we're the place to be!
