Magic and Comedy

Once a mecca for the elite of the Magic World

Location: 145 Wardour Street, W1V

Description: 'Brooke's Magic Place'...well back in the 1970s, this informal studio on the 2nd floor was a mecca for the elite of the Magic World.

With it's own cocktail bar, capacious sofas and lush carpeting, it was for comic legends like Tommy Cooper, a home from home.

If you were after something magic, you came to this very spot!
