A STATEMENT FROM THE TROUBADOUR
RUMOURS OF OUR DEMISE HAVE BEEN GREATLY EXAGGERATED!
You may have read that we are up for sale. The great news is that the sale is not the end for the venue but a new beginning, which will win us the backing and investment we need to secure a long and prosperous future for The Troubadour. We want to stress that we are open for business as usual – as long as there are hungry customers to feed and hungrier musicians wanting to perform. We’re overwhelmed by all the messages of support from our friends and customers. Thank you to everyone who has been so kind.
The answer is simple, if you want to support The Troubadour, please keep coming! Keep eating, keep drinking and keep watching the amazing, affordable live music that we put on every week. Recommend us to your friends; recommend us to total strangers! These are hard times for independent live music venues throughout the UK but with your help we can ALL survive

Jimmy Page visited The Troubadour in May 2015. He was happy to be pictured with Susie to show his support for our iconic live music venue, where young emerging musicians and poets continue to perform (as they have done since 1954!)
REVIEWS The Café The Troubadour is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year as it was established in 1954. It is one of the last remaining 50s Coffee Houses in London with a proud history as a 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 9am ’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
The wine bar below the Wine shop is a quieter, cosier corner of The Troubadour, nestled beneath the vast expanse of wine delights above. Customers are welcome to sample wines from Troubadour Wines or have a nibble from next door in little booths, watched over by our carved Victorian bar. The area is also available for exclusive hire for dinner parties or drinks parties for up to 16-25 guests.
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
Troubadour Club 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, Adele’s performed her first London performance here and we have recently seen Ed Sheeran and Amos Lee in our little cellar club. Last October we were honour to host Ronnie Wood and Mick Taylor in a secret gig prior to their concert in the Royal Albert Hall. We have a jam packed programme of music and poetry and also hire it out for parties of up to 120 people.
The Garret 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.
The Gallery 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
