Basement bar with the bar to the right. No real ale, just keg. Will not be returning.

Dating back to 1988, this bar/pub is situated beneath the Phoenix Theatre, and was once the dressing rooms and rehearsal space used by the likes of Noel Coward, Laurence Olivier, Vivien Leigh and Gertrude Lawrence; I went here the other day as part of an office bash.

The place is a bit confusing as it describes itself as a members' club, but we were not asked for any ID and what membership requirement there is, seems to revolve around entry after 9.00 pm - if you're in by 9.00 pm, then you can stay until the late licence expires; even so, no sign of any membership requirements were in evidence, even after 9.00 pm.

This is a nice subterranean place with an art deco interior, full of theatrical bric-a-brac. It's of modest proportions with a venue hire room to the rear. Staff are friendly and the place is generally comfortable. The bar runs along a large portion of the right wall and unsurprisingly, there's a large selection of premium lagers. Unfortunately there's no real ale but there are two keg offerings from the Revisionist brewery: Rye and Dark IPA. Real ale they may not be, but they were rather good - I've had a lot worse on cask; given the location, it's a bit pricey: £4.60 for a pint of the Dark IPA.

This is a nice place and the 'relaxed' membership rules are welcome. I'd certainly come back as the atmosphere is good and it's sufficiently niche to be passed over by tourists and West End-roving scum.
