Smoke & Mirrors


Hailed as 'The UK's only boutique magic theatre pub', Smoke & Mirrors is a Denmark Street destination that already strikes notes as a boozer that doesn't necessarily do things by the book. 

Petite sister to Mark Bennett's Illusion Bar, Smoke & Mirrors is a destination of just that, smoke and mirrors. While many may think this space is but a standard pub on a side, Smoke & Mirrors harbours a theatre treat. With the space for 48 bums on seats, the Magic Theatre at Smoke & Mirrors is a place of fun nights and frivolity as magic evenings, comedy, burlesque and live music are ever afoot in a space brimming with romantic tables, low light and noir murals. Don't worry if you're not cackling over comedy, the main bar totes room for up to 120 of you too. 

Brimming with classic ales, proud pints and bottles of wine, liquid fare at Smoke & Mirrors sits in the realm of pub.  A sentiment strongly reflected in their intimate selection of award winning bar snacks. From handmade sausage rolls at two for just £3.50, or brie, bacon and cranberry pananis at £3.95, the bites are small but brimming with home-spun charm.

  • A word from the chef:

    While only light bites, Smoke and Mirrors keeps those tummy tinkerings at bay with food the likes of handmade sausage rolls at just £3.50 for two, and a chorizo stuffed El Jefe wrap at £4.95.
