|> About the Apollo Victoria|
Stage and Auditorium
An inspiring testament to art-deco design, the Apollo Victoria’s auditorium was once described by Gaumont-British News as ‘a fairy cavern under the sea, or a mermaid’s dream of heaven’. The striking originality of the decor gives any event a memorable twist whilst the 88,000 individual LED bulbs enable a wide variety of spectacular effects. Since its first musical success with The Sound of Music in 1981, the Apollo Victoria has enjoyed a wealth of West End hits including Starlight Express, Bombay Dreams and Saturday Night Fever. Also a popular live music venue, the theatre has hosted performers such as Liza Minnelli, Dean Martin and Cliff Richard. It is ideal for concerts, conferences, award ceremonies and charity galas.
The largest reception space we offer, the Foyer Bar of the Apollo Victoria can hold up to 250 people in a variety of different setups. Uniquely flexible, the Foyer Bar can stand alone as a venue for presentations, meetings, rehearsals and workshops. With a stylish bar running along one side of the room, the Foyer Bar is perfect for parties, standing receptions and lunches. It also acts as a perfect registration area and breakout space for larger auditorium hires.
Unlike any other theatre bar in the West End, the Elixir Bar offers a novel experience. Recently redesigned to match the magical theme of our resident production, this unique space is a suitable location for meetings, parties and lunches. With a cauldron of cocktails, a smoke machine and its very own sound system, the room is filled with energy and atmosphere. Offering exclusive packages during the show, the Elixir Bar is also available for daytime hire for those looking for a more original experience!
This intimate space is a popular area for VIPs, with an impressive catalogue of celebrity and royal visits. Available for hire during the day, or alongside a show during the evening, the Ambassador Lounge offers the utmost in exclusivity and elegance. 2013 saw a first for the Ambassador Lounge when it played host to its first wedding reception!
