Shows Upstairs

Upstairs from our wonderful little bar there is a fully equipped theatre for intimate live performances: come watch comedy, drama, and more. It’s like a little festival venue all year round. Booking essential – see Theatre for details.

About the bar & menu

Alexander Bar attracts a mixed crowd of interesting locals young and old as well as a smattering of tourists from the neighbouring hotels. The bar is filled with old-world charm and is engineered to get people talking.  The furnishings are warm and inviting.

Alexander Bar & Café is the ideal place to meet up with friends or strangers. Come for after-work drinks and snacks or for a light meal before or after catching a show Upstairs.

New Kitchen, New Menu

Our kitchen and menu has been redesigned and reimagined by chef Jason Whitehead. It’s simple and elegant with a selection of tapas, cheese and charcuterie boards. As an extra-entertaining treat, popcorn, chocolates and other snacks are available for shows. Just note that our kitchen takes a break on Sundays so only our snacks are available.
