Leicester Square Theatre

Formerly known as The Venue, Leicester Square Theatre gave the beery, dank space something of a facelift in 2008 and opened with a bill of comedy, cabaret and theatre that included Joan Rivers, burlesque star Polly Rae and an experimental take on Oscar Wilde's 'Dorian Gray'. Its diddy basement bar is one of the most intimate places to catch a comic or cabaret turn in town.

In my eyes, it has no faults. Make this your new guilty pleasure.

This theatre is intimate. A great way to see any comedian or show. I went along and saw Chris Ramsey who was very funny. Even though I was sitting at the back I felt like I was close to him and really easy to see him.

This basement venue situated just off Leicester Square has a really intimate feel to it and I like the fact that there is a well-stocked bar either side of the seating area so you can get served easily wherever you sit.  The seats themselves are comfortable and well racked so you get a good view anywhere in the theatre - though perhaps not a so perfect from the rows of side seats set at an right angle to the stage.  Worth keeping an eye out for who's on here - they get some top acts - and I would much rather see them perform in this intimate space than at the cavernous O2 or Wembley Arenas.

This is a great, intimate venue where despite where you sit, you have a very clear view of the stage. The front row is so close there are even signs asking punters not to put their drink on the stage! I've been there many times to see comedians such as Richard Herring and Jerry Sadowitz and enjoyed myself every time.

Great for alternative nights out and comedy. The venue itself is really comfortable and wherever you sit, you have a great view.
