Bars at the King's Theatre

The King's Theatre is equipped with three bars located on each level, all serving a selection of hot and cold drinks and a small selection of bar snacks. The bars open one hour before the performance starts. 

Help us reduce single use plastic

With over 90% of plastic currently not being recycled, it is more important than ever to reduce the use of single-use plastic. To help do our bit, we have introduced a reusable plastic cup deposit scheme at the Festival Theatre.

If you wish to take your drink into the auditorium, remember to ask for a reusable cup in exchange for a £1 deposit from any till point (bars, café, merchandise desk or Bars App desk). To get your deposit back, return your cup to any stalls exit or the foyer. Any uncollected deposits will be donated to the costs of future green initiatives at our theatres.

You can pay for your deposit with cash or credit/ debit card separately or as part of your drink order, but please note the deposit can only be returned in cash.

If you use the Capital Theatres Bars app to pre-order and pre-pay for your drinks, you will be able to add reusable cups to your order on the app. Learn more about our environmental initiatives.

Want to avoid the queues?

We encourage all patrons to pre-order interval drinks in advance to avoid queuing at the interval. The Capital Theatre Bars App allows you to browse our drinks menu, order and pay for drinks all from the comfort of your own home or while on the bus on your way to the theatre.

Discover our bars

The Tudor Bar

A mock-Tudor country pub snug, downstairs from the main foyer, services the stalls. An endearing curiosity with a timeless appeal, the bar is located on Level 1 and it's the perfect spot for those sitting on the Stalls.

The Dress Circle Bar

A great bar to admire the period fixtures and fittings of the King's, located on the first floor (Level 2), this circular bar can service audience members sitting in all areas of the auditorium. Please note that due to its location, it might be the busiest bar on the night. 

The Upper Circle Bar

A beautifully fitted out, 1940s/50s period bar perfect for those sitting in the Upper Circle. Please note that the Upper Circle Bar is only open during our busiest performances.
