For over four months, The Phoenix Arts Club has kept cabaret alive with its digital live streams, providing paid work for over 100 performers from across the globe, and regularly entertaining an audience of 50,000. From the 1st August 2020 the Club reopens and YOU can attend the venue and enjoy all the magic that's expected from a visit to the legendary West End Club, with a socially distanced live performance! Say hello to Thursday nights with Showreel LIVE!

How many of you have been paying for vocal reels or begging cruise ships to give you a video clip for your Showreel? Well we're going to be doing it for you.

Welcome to Showreel LIVE - your LIVE Musical Theatre performance filmed and uploaded in minutes ready for your Showreel every Thursday night. To perform, simply secure your tickets & drinks using this ticket link. Then, on the night, you can sign up to perform.

You'll perform with a West End Musical Director in front of a live audience - and we'll make sure the camera, lights and action all make you look and sound superb!

It's a Phoenix first again - and time for US to celebrate the amazing talent that comes through our doors...YOU! We can't wait!

Complete your experience by indulging in the first Phoenix Street Food concept, the Bhangra Box! A culinary journey of three tastings freshly made by The Bhangra Boys of Covent Garden, famous for running the UK's oldest North Indian restaurant. Designed for both mild spice lovers and Scoville thrill-seekers alike, with choices for both meat lovers and vegans. The experience is served mild, with your choice of a mild tikka, medium masala or RED HOT madras sauce picked on the night and served on the side. The Bangrah Box is served in environmentally friendly packaging.

A limited amount of tickets are made available to the public. Secreted away down the same little side street used in the opening sequence of Harry Potter and tucked beneath The Phoenix Theatre lies our charming escape from the London norm. Our lively and nostalgic theatre bar & Restaurant 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. With fascinating signed posters, paintings and pictures from decades of theatre productions, a restored art deco interior and hidden treasures lurking in every corner, there's something new to see on every visit, and you never know who might decide to give an impromptu performance!
