Its cool blue neon lights, front-of-house café and occasional late-night shows may blend it into the Soho landscape, but since taking up residence on Dean Street in 2000 Soho Theatre has made quite a name for itself.
If every there were a place in London to get a year-round taste of the Edinburgh Fringe it's here: because comedians and cabaret are an integral part of its bill, because so much theatre work from the Fringe transfers down here, and because with its multiple rooms, late shows and ever-buzzing bar, it does feel like an Edinburgh Fringe venue – and a good one too.
It has to be said that Soho excels in almost every area apart from the production of good in house work, something it's consistently struggled with (though it has many fine co-productions). But this barely impacts on anybody's good time, and it's hard to hold it against the most fun theatre in central London.

Just a minute or two off Shaftesbury Avenue , yet the theatregoing experience is so different here. I love this place. The bar is worth a visit all on its own. The performances and spaces are varied. I have seen everything from the bonkers Rubber Bandits downstairs to some pretty cool theatre and comedy in spaces upstairs. I wish London had more places like this right in the heart of town.
Right in the heart of Soho with nice eating and drinking establishments nearby, there is always a good show on here without the prices of larger venues - I love it.
