Café & Bar

New Diorama's front of house, public spaces and Café & Bar have been re-imagined by a team of incredible theatre designers.

Theatre design team Joshua Gadsby and Naomi Kuyck-Cohen have transformed our public spaces to better reflect the creativity and innovation that takes place on our stage.

If you're looking for somewhere to meet in Central London, need somewhere to focus on a creative project or just want an artitic environment just unwind - NDT's Café and Bar is now one of the best theatre bars in London. 

Opening Hours

We are currently open 8am - 6pm, Monday to Friday, serving coffee, hot & cold drinks, fresh pastries and a range of sweet and savoury snacks.

The bar is also open on selected evenings and weekend dates, one hour before and after scheduled performances. 

Best Theatre Bar in London

With enhanced access, and better flow throughout the building, we've listened to your feedback and wish list to ensure our new cafe boasts:

  • Free Fibre Wi-Fi - fast, or even faster, than what you'll have at home!

  • A suspicious amount of plug sockets, meaning you can plug in your laptop or charge your phone wherever you sit. 

  • More desk and surface space to come and work, be creative and socialise. 

  • A gallery through the space which celebrates the theatre making process and acts as a gateway to the creativity of the shows on our stage.

  • Free subscriptions to creative, design magazines and journals including Aesthetica and BOMB Magazine, as well as a collection of creative and theatre books to browse during your visit.
