A Theatre fit for a Baron

Location: 28A Comeragh Road, W14 9RH
Description: The 'Barons Court Theatre' is a pub theatre in West Kensington, and unlike many pub theatres that are located upstairs or in the back room, the Barons Court Theatre is located in the cellar/vaults below the 'Curtains Up Pub'.
The theatre has about 60 seats that surround the stage on three sides. The playing area is an intimate square surrounded by archways on the three sides where the audience sits. Sometimes the directors use the audience space as playing area and so the theatre has a very intimate feel - in fact you can look the actors right in the eye - not sure if that is a good thing or not!
With the Curtains Up Pub literally within spitting distance, it's an enjoyable place to grab an ale or a meal before the show.
