The Theatre Cafe are expanding their brand to include The Theatre Cafe Diner, which will offer guests a new theatrical dining experience.
The diner will open at 154 Shaftesbury Avenue, London, this summer. It will cover two floors, and offer diner food, as well as hot and cold drinks and cocktails.
Like The Theatre Cafe, the diner’s walls will be covered in theatrical memorabilia, and singing waiters will perform musical theatre classics throughout the restaurant to entertain guests.
The Theatre Cafe Diner will also host special events and live performances from West End and Broadway stars.
Managing director and founder of The Theatre Cafe, Joe Davey, said: “It’s been a tough few years for our industry, so we are thrilled that The Theatre Cafe brand is expanding.
“The Theatre Cafe has grown so much from its beginnings as a family ticketing business, and we are delighted to be seen as a key beacon within the theatre industry. The diner is going to be an excellent companion to The Theatre Cafe, and I can’t wait to open the doors
and for people to experience a diner like no other!”
Restaurant director at Shaftesbury, Julia Wilkinson, said how thrilled she was that The Theatre Cafe Diner had chosen their location.
“The Theatre Cafe Diner will further energise Seven Dials’ dynamic F&B offering, and the brand’s dedication to showcasing popular West End theatre productions, will perfectly complement its setting at the heart of London’s iconic theatre scene.
“We are confident that the theatre fans and food lovers from near and far will be eager to experience this vibrant new operator.”
