Yes, it is ordinarily a theatre, but since its 2015 revamp it is also an events venue, hosting everything from regular club nights to orchestral performances. It is the oldest still functioning theatre in the district, and the first legitimate Broadway Theatre. And, with a pedigree like that, it definitely attracts its fair share of celebrities.
The decor stays true to the original 1913 design, maintaining a stunning marble staircase, opera boxes, and beautiful flowers and cherubs everywhere, preserved from the original designs by Alfred Rosenheim. The lighting is state of the art, and depending on what sort of an event you are attending, you will feel immersed in the whole experience.
The main club nights focus on building great energy, with international DJs playing live, spaces opened up for dancing and socializing, and plenty of delicious cocktails and bottles. Catering scales up from the full bar all the way to full bottle service. And if you want an even more extravagant night out, they have a VIP lounge and a Presidential Balcony available to rent most nights.
The Globe Theatre club offers a wide variety of specialist events. One such event is a biweekly burlesque show. But this is not a sleazy strip club event. Going back to the golden age of cabaret and striptease, it features dancers who are beautifully skilled and creative, with immense stage presence and costume designs that will leave you in awe. They also feature circus acts, acrobatics, live bands, etc.
If you are looking for the perfect place to host a birthday, launch a product, or hold any other sort of large scale event, this is the perfect place. It has the capacity for full catering, 1722 guests across three levels, and accessibility options. And many of their regular and specialist acts are available to hire for your event, making it very quick and simple to plan an over the top party for all your friends, loved ones, or coworkers.
Because of what a varied venue it is, you will naturally need to make a reservation. If you show up on the day they could be all sold out, they could be having a special event or a private party, or they could even be set up for a film crew to record. Even if you are on the guest list, you may be turned away if you show up on the wrong day. So make sure to make a reservation, not only for entry, but also for whatever services you will need, as there is no guarantee that you'll be able to get last minute bottle service or VIP lounge access.
As far as dress code is concerned, it is smart casual for most nights, but some specialist events require more formal attire, and some may request particular clothing, such as fancy dress, or black tie optional. So make sure to double check what the dress code is for the night you are attending.
