Joe Allen

13 Exeter Street, St Pauls, Greater London, WC2E 7DT


Joe Allen restaurant, in the heart of the Theatre District, is a London institution that, like the London Eye, remains lively and fascinating. It used to be that you had to work to find the dark door and tiny plaque by the entrance down Exeter Street by Covent Garden, but now a proper awning marks the spot so there’s no confusion. Once you enter, you descend into theatrical nirvana, an exposed-brick dark-wood New York-style complex, plastered with show posters, photos, and programmes. The long bar, seasonally-changing North American menu and seriously A-list regulars are all crowd-pleasers. Jimmy the resident pianist has been playing six nights a week since the doors opened 30 years ago. Casual, reliable, and open from lunch til late, Joe Allen is one of the West End’s biggest hits. And how can an American restaurant not have a hamburger on the menu? Well, they do. Just ask.
