We are thrilled to announce the opening of Pavlova’s bar and cafe, located within the Victoria Palace Theatre.
The bar is named after Anna Pavlova, a Russian prima ballerina of the late 19th and early 20th centuries who fled Russia and when she arrived in the UK, was hidden in the Victoria Palace theatre, where she lived for 4 years.
Pavlova’s will serve serious cocktails and light bites with friendly, attentive service, meaning your theatre bar experience is special. As well as theatre goers, Pavlova’s is open to those who live and work locally, so those in the Victoria area can pop in for cocktails or take your pick of over 38 types of gins from the hidden gin cupboard.
The bar will be open throughout the day for those looking for a light bite. In the morning, croissants and coffees will be on offer, while, a selection of snacks, speciality paninis, charcuterie and cheeses will be available for lunch and dinner. The drinks list has been curated by the group’s Bar Manager, Jay Doy. The signature cocktail, ‘The Dying Swan’, has been named after Anna Pavlova’s fabled dance and features a music box that opens to reveal a rotating ballerina and a gin-based cocktail.
The theatre bar launches in partnership with Sir Cameron Mackintosh, owner of the theatre currently showing the hit musical Hamilton.
