The Grade I Listed Theatre Royal Drury Lane, affectionately known as The Lane and one of the oldest and best known theatres in the world, reopened earlier this year having undergone a two-year £60 million restoration.


Owned by Andrew and Madeleine Lloyd Webber, who oversaw the total restoration of Theatre Royal Drury Lane with architects Haworth Tompkins, the project celebrates the building's long history and cultural legacy, including the Front of House and opulent staircases as well as the world-famous auditorium which now brings the performers and audience closer together.

New food and drink spaces have been added to the restored theatrical and performance area making The Lane an entertainment and cultural destination open throughout the day. From casual and contemporary, to formal and theatrical, each of The Lane's spaces has its own charm: the spacious and regal Grand Saloon, the relaxing, all-day dining area The Garden serving cocktails, coffee and light bites, a cocktail bar inspired and named after high society photographer and theatre costume designer Cecil Beaton and finally the Rotunda Bar where champagne will flow and elegant Georgian architecture shines.
