The Everyman Bistro has been a collective and artistic hub for decades. As the theatre has featured many future celebrities such as Bill Nighy, Pete Postlethwaite, Shirley Basset and the Fab Four themselves, John, Paul, George and Ringo. The bistro has always been a regular haunt of many of the theatre's patrons. Now with three places to meet, eat and drink all the way from breakfast ‘til late.
Don’t think you can only pop in if you’re there just to see a play though. Relax in the basement bistro, with its tranquil corners and wood-burning stove; people watch from the street level cafe; or circulate in the theatre bar. The theatre is also open during the interlude in shows.
If those two aren’t enough for you then head up to the balcony overlooking Hope Street – the only street in the world that contains two cathedrals – and look down on of the best areas in the city, you never know who you might come across.
Whether you’re attending the theatre, chilling after a long day, or popping in for a slice of cake and a coffee with friends, remember something Paul Coelho almost said; ‘theatre provides nourishment for the soul, just as a meal does for the body’.
