With some of London’s most celebrated shows on their doorstep, including Hamilton and Wicked, it would be amiss to enjoy a matinee or evening at the theatre without a pre- or post-theatre experience at The Rubens at the Palace.

A selection of restaurants satiate guests’ every gastronomic desire, including The English Grill serving refined British cuisine, The Curry Room for authentic Indian food enjoyed in sumptuous surroundings, and The Palace Lounge for classic afternoon tea overlooking the Royal Mews. The New York Bar – with its striking red interior – provides a unique setting to hear live music whilst sipping a modern hand-crafted cocktail, or simply enjoy a post-dinner nightcap.
