The Lost Alhambra
Time Out says
Situated on the site of the old Alhambra Theatre of Variety, this Adventure Group cocktail bar promises just as much drama, with a weekly Drag Brunch.
When it opened in 1854 The Alhambra Theatre hosted one of the few bars to accept women without the escort of a man. Once described as the “greatest place of infamy in all London”, it had a reputation for banging nights out.
The leading ladies of the stage would descend underground after their performance, declaring, “Come, won’t you bring me my liquor?”. They would flirt, eat oysters, drink champagne and make eligible acquaintances.
Lost in a fire in 1882, the site was rebuilt, but said to be cursed by housing such debauchery and eventually demolished in 1936 to become the Odeon Theatre.
Now the bar has been resurrected it has again become the place for the ultimate after party.
