Christmas Menus 2017
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 (although 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's something new to see on every visit and you never know who might be there to give an impromptu performance!

House Rules 1) Please respect members’ privacy and refrain from making any unsolicited requests or taking any photographs. One day we will all be Jude Law. 2) Please ask a member of staff before moving furniture. As Maurice would say, “Don’t touch the props, leave the props alone!”. Imagine descending in your bubble and someone has moved the Grimmerie… 3) Our food is delicious, and our bar well stocked so please do not consume food or drink sourced from elsewhere. We are not in Digs now! 4) Our Club is closed occasionally for filming and private functions, so members are encouraged to check social media or call in before visiting. Just so you can boast about who is in. 5) There will be no chewing of gum at any time while in the Club. Or else, Maggot, you will find yourself in The Chokey. 6) Upon leaving the Club please be considerate of our neighbours. A Gondola trip down Phoenix Street shouting “Sing for me, my Angel” will not be appreciated. Other than that, “Anything Goes”
