Players Bar & Kitchen


Head into the Players Bar and Kitchen and join in one of its late-night singalongs - the bar’s piano is lit up later on in the evenings, and revellers and actors let off steam by belting out show tunes and classic numbers.

The kitchen is also a big draw for theatre-goers, serving up a popular pre-theatre menu. Expect a small but well-crafted menu of pizzas, jerk chicken and the Players Bar burger, alongside a long wine list.

We came here for dinner because we were seeing a show around the corner at the Playhouse Theatre and the reviews and menu looked good. So I booked us a table. When I arrived, they had a giant sign on the table stating it was reserved for me, so that was a nice touch. They have free wifi, but neither of our phones wanted to connect very easily.

Foodwise, I had a chicken liver parfait to start... more

Ready to take a fun retro trip to the 70's and 80's with an exceptionally good piano player/singer and an energetic, entertainting crowd that knows all the words to songs of that era - even though they were probably born after them? This is the place - and it's worth visiting regardless of your age.

A Brit friend and I were headed to another place on Villers on a Tues. (wish I could remember... more

This can be a little confusing if you're there to see a show and believe everyone else in the restaurant to be seeing the show too yet they're relaxing as the bell for the theatre goes off! We had the chicken which was cooked to perfection... more

Villiers street isn't short of your after work water holes. Everywhere you turn there's always a bunch of people standing outside having a drink which adds to the enjoyable hustle of a Friday night in London. I love it but sometimes you want a place that's a bit more chilled where you can sit and actually talk to the person you're with.

When I first came here, I thought it was a little... more
