The London Coliseum is home to The English National Opera but also plays host to dance and theatre. The big, bold and beautiful building is in fact London’s largest theatre with a capacity of 2,359, topping even the mighty London Palladium.
The original programme for the theatre was a mix of music hall and variety theatre, with the grand finale – a full-scale revolving chariot race – requiring the stage to revolve. The theatre was one of the first two places in Britain to sell Coca-Cola (the other was Selfridges).
There are four bars in the theatre, each offering great service with a range of fine wines and snacks.
The American Bar Restaurant offers pre-performance and interval dining. If you’re looking for something lighter than dinner, the Stalls Bar and Sky Bar offer sandwiches and snacks, as well as a full drinks menu ninety minutes before curtain up.
