Inspired by the West End star of the 1700s and iconic feminist, Kitty Clive and her most famous character Mrs Riot, this cocktail destination with a cheeky and bohemian vibe is the perfect place to transport yourself to a different era of entertainment.
Using her earning power and fame, Kitty led the fight for actors’ rights, publicly shaming people for conspiring to pay female actors less than males. She also railed against the public’s habit of associating actors with beggars and prostitutes. Basically, she was a badass bitch!
Situated on Henrietta Street in Covent Garden, Mrs Riot is a bar smack bang in the middle of the West End theatre scene. Between St Martin’s Lane and The Strand, it is a short stroll from many theatres which makes it the ideal place to stop in for a delicious cocktail (or three) before and after a show!
You can’t miss it, because the outside is painted fluorescent pink and the inside is just as quirky, with a warm and friendly environment.
Every week you can attend ‘Musical Mondays’ featuring performances from stars of the West End and recent graduates – the stars of the future. Upcoming solo shows include Emma Lindars (13 September), Sophie Isaacs (11 October), and Steph Parry (18 October) with Future Stars Of The West End performing 6 & 20 September, 4 & 25 October.
Tickets are £10 (£5 for students) and free for show-biz and industry people (+ 20% off all drinks with a valid ID).
Every Saturday you can experience Drag Queen Bottomless Brunch hosted by Margo Marshall – a riotous afternoon of hilarious lipsync battles, outrageous bingo, games, and dance-offs. Alongside this guests will be able to indulge in bottomless cocktails from teapots including frothy pink Bellini’s, high-class rosehip cocktails and a St Germain Spritz – plus mounds of delicious vegan cupcakes from Ruby’s of London.
What more could drag someone out of bed on a Saturday morning?
Make a trip down to Mrs Riot next time you are in the West End, it’s great fun and you never know who you might see in there!
