The Victoria, Strathearn Place / Sussex Place, W2 - Theatre bar
See TQ2680 : The Victoria, Strathearn Place / Sussex Place, W2. The Theatre Bar was installed c.1958 with fittings salvaged from Shaw, Runtz and Ford's Gaiety Theatre of 1902-3 which stood in the Aldwych. Balcony fronts supported on Corinthian columns line the walls and a corner is counter set with boards from the shows, one signed Westwood Brothers suggesting that Bryan and Nonnan Westwood (working nearby at the time) may have been the architects for the installation. The bar-back depicts the Gaiety and there are two small box fronts in corners. The separate dining room was adapted after 1955 in neo-Queen Anne style, with panelling, fireplace and corner cupboards decorated with swags. These fittings may well also come from the Gaiety.
