|> About the Phoenix Theatre|
The Phoenix Theatre’s beautiful auditorium, decorated in deep red, gold and dark wood, encapsulates the essence of a traditional London theatre. It is an ideal setting for photo shoots and filming and makes for an impressive venue for conferences, lectures and performances.The ideal back-drop for any shoot, the auditorium’s picturesque safety curtain is a rendition of Jacopo del Sellaio’s The Triumph Of Love. The large capacity auditorium is also excellent for conferences, lectures, presentations and training days, whilst the multiple bars provide ample, flexible spaces for break-out sessions. The auditorium is also available for showcase hires, but please note that the stage is steeply raked.
This expansive entrance to the theatre, decorated in cream and gold, is a striking setting for receptions and entertaining. Feeding upstairs to the stylish Noël Coward Bar, and straight out onto a quiet Covent Garden street, this bar is hugely flexible and effortlessly atmospheric.

Gertrude Lawrence Bar
Named after the international superstar and West End darling who starred opposite Noël Coward at the opening of the Phoenix Theatre, this bar is graceful and exquisite. One of the largest bars in the Phoenix, it is perfectly suited to formal seated meetings and workshops; the raised area at the front of the room lending itself well to presentations.
TIME magazine once wrote of the playwright, Noël Coward, that he had, ‘a sense of personal style, a combination of cheek and chic, pose and poise’. With luxurious furnishings and a fully-equipped cocktail bar, this opulent bar aims to capture the essence of this style, It is an homage to the man whose play Private Lives opened the Phoenix Theatre in 1930. Boasting a high ceiling and natural daylight, it is a prime entertaining spot.
Intimate and exclusive, the Ambassador Lounge offers a high standard in VIP entertaining. By night the room plays host to theatre guests who are looking for a more elite experience and by day it welcomes private meetings and receptions.
