But there may yet be some interest to be wrung out of the apparently never-ending scrutiny, as Moore investigates the early influences that shaped Margaret Thatcher and, in turn, the country she led for over a decade. In the interests of balance, it’d be nice to see, say, Simon Schama fronting a documentary with an alternative viewpoint, but we shan’t hold our breath. So it’s probably time to let her rest in peace for a bit after this.
Phoenix Artist Club
This legendary late-night bar and brasserie has been through something of a revamp over the last few years - all in an effort to return it to its art deco roots. Sagely they've kept the walls much the same, still festooned with headshots. Membership is required to gain entry, but non-members can make a reservation in advance. If you've been to the theatre then show the guys on the door your stub and, if there's enough room, they'll let you in. And if you really like what's inside? Membership starts at £10 a month, or £100 a year. Keep an eye out for cabaret, musical theatre open mic nights, impromptu performances and more - more often than not from West End casts (they often make a beeline for here). The restaurant serves modern-European food Tuesday-Saturday evenings from 5pm, with the kitchen headed up by Robert Kusy.
Venue says: “The Netflix of private members' clubs: membership from £10 a month. Pre-theatre dining, 800 shows a year and a late night bar!”
