Music, stand-up comedy, an impressive range of cocktails and delicious home-cooked Caribbean food served up in the relaxing atmosphere of a West Indian beach bar.
Theatre Royal Bar, Stratford, offers all the above, and sitting only 400m from the Olympic Park, there couldn't be a better place for visitors to the area to enjoy a drink this summer.
Located in Gerry Raffles Square, Stratford, the award winning bar provides a post-show hang out for punters at Theatre Royal, Picture House Cinema or Stratford Circus.
And with free live entertainment seven nights a week, the bar more than holds its own in the East End's creative heartland.
Monday nights are stand up comedy, Tuesday's 'Best of Newham' nights show off the best musical talent the borough has to offer and daily acoustic music fills up the bill with other performers visiting the bar regularly.
The food is basic but extremely satisfying Caribbean cuisine- rice and peas, curry goat, jerk chicken and other favourites and non-Caribbean sides and salads.
On the drinks menu, you have summery cocktails along with a good selection of lagers and wine.
It is open from 10am-11pm weeknights, and midnight on Friday and Saturday. Food is served from 12:30 until the evening.
The bar itself is a cosy and intimate venue, far too small for comics to hide from hecklers, and shows sometimes fly off into improvised mayhem. I have seen a comedian bravely battle through a set while a drunk Ukrainian man wandered on stage and started playing the piano.
Theatre Royal Bar is a 30 second walk from Stratford station, and therefore accessible on the central and jubilee lines, as well as the DLR, the mainline from Liverpool Street and a legion of bus routes.
