Welcome to our club!
Thank you for your interest in 'our family' that may seem a strange statement to make about a club, but it’s not our claim – it’s that of our members! We ‘entertain entertainers’ here at the Phoenix and we have been doing so since 1988.
The Phoenix Artist Club is a private members' club located in the heart of London Theatreland and our membership is made up of professionals from the performing arts and media industries.
This lively and nostalgic theatre bar is located in the original dressing and rehearsal rooms of the Phoenix Theatre where Laurence Olivier made his debut on stage in the 1930s in "Private Lives" with Noel Coward and Gertrude Lawrence.
In the late '70s it was transformed into a wine bar and restaurant with a decor to complement its theatrical past. The unique decor includes some very special artworks such as the costume designs of the Rhine Stone Ballet, a hand-made model of the Old Vic Theatre and prints detailing how to dress well in 1930s London.
The collection is also constantly changing as members regularly add their own memorabilia. Scattered around are props from past productions and signed prints from West End shows.
The Club is an institution amongst its members and is a gem that once visited is never forgotten. It offers a great atmosphere for networking, meetings or just a relaxing drink with friends and colleagues after work.
Membership is required after 8pm. No admission after 1am.
