Welcome to The Troubadour!
The Troubadour is multifaceted: Earls Court’s most famous Café, the legendary Live Music Venue, an elegant Art Gallery, award winning Wine Shop and Wine Bar, and The Garret, our Luxury Serviced Apartment.
We will be open every day over the bank holiday weekend!

Welcome to our lovely website! Isn’t it pretty? It is still relatively new and as with all new things (especially technological ones) we have had a few teething problems (think broken links or missing pictures) but hopefully most of them are now sorted. However, should you find anything wrong or if you have any unanswered questions please don’t hesitate to email email@example.com and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. Lots of love, the Troubadour team!
“The Troubadour is a towering bohemian monolith held together by the glue of time. It’s purpose? To undo the tangled web of frustrated London life that barks and breeds outside it’s door.”
“No need for a flux capacitor here; I just have to walk through the doors of the Troubadour to enter the 1950s. Offering true vintage in a chic form, this cafe-cum-wine-bar-cum-music-venue is an experience I savour. The Troubadour’s charm oozes into the outside world too. Elegant tables are perfectly placed to soak up the atmosphere of Old Brompton Road. There is also an idyllic garden – possibly my most peaceful part of central London and an ideal spot to tuck into the best omelettes around.”

The Troubadour is one of the last remaining 50s Coffee Houses in London with a proud history as a low temperature centre of liberty, peace, and bohemian artistic energy.
One review calls us “the best eatery west of Big Ben” and we are pretty proud of our menu which is served from 8am ’til 11pm 7 days a week. We’ve also got a lovely hidden GARDEN (open from 9am until 9pm) and a pretty tasty cocktail list.
Downstairs is the Club where goliaths of the music world played in the 60s and 70s (think Bob Dylan and Paul Simon) when they were little supernovas in the making. The same can be said for today, we played host to Adele’s first gig and have recently seen Ed Sheeran and Amos Lee in our little cellar club. We have a jam packed programme of music and poetry and also hire it out for parties of up to 120 people.
Might you find yourself looking for an aromatic adventure, Troubadour Wines offers some of the most exquisite flavours of both classic examples and extraordinary discoveries, sought out especially by our fine wines connoisseur, Atilio Falco. We offer wine tasting evenings to anyone who wants to learn in a fun and relaxed environment, so feel free to sign up today.
The wine bar is our newest addition, a quieter, cosier corner of The Troubadour, nestled beneath the vast expanse of wine delights of the wine shop. Customers are welcome to sample wines from above or have a nibble from next door in little booths, watched over by our carved Victorian bar. The area is also available to hire out for parties or dinners for up to 25 guests.
If you don’t want to go home after a party or gig at The Troubadour Club, or maybe you want a night out in central London, you can reserve the Garret, which can sleep up to four.
We’re excited to announce that The Garret did brilliantly in the prestigious Alastair Sawday Reader Awards. From 1,000 places listed in Sawday’s British B&B and Hotels & Inns guide we were voted runner up in the Favourite Hotel or Inn category.
If you’re looking for a light and airy space for a drinks or dinner party or to exhibit art of any sort then check out our Gallery.
‘With more soul than a millipede wearing size 17 boots, ceilings and walls strewn with the instrumental heirlooms of a bygone bohemia, this 50s café screams throw-back. Successfully and audaciously blending 50s coffee bar, wine bar, club, music venue and breakfast bar with an easy smoothness, this live music haven is the cornerstone of Old Brompton Road, which has refreshingly resisted the modern humdrum of high street homogeny. Comfort and conviviality ooze as you can sup European classic wine offerings or New World fare, nurse a hot chocolate or bury your face in an omelette big enough to swallow you whole.’ Alex Homer
