Best private dining rooms in and around Shaftesbury Avenue

Shaftesbury Avenue is a major thoroughfare in London’s West End which runs from New Oxford Street, close to Fitzrovia, in a southerly direction to Piccadilly Circus, crossing Charing Cross Road around its half-way point at Cambridge Circus.

This busy West End street, which essentially bisects Soho on its western side with Covent Garden on its east, runs through the heart of London’s Theatreland with the many famous theatres that are actually located on Shaftesbury Avenue including The Shaftesbury, The Lyric and The Apollo.

The street’s close proximity to three major West End districts, each of which being home to a multitude of private restaurant dining rooms and pub function rooms, makes it an important street for access to venues with spaces for group dining events and standing drinks receptions.

Shaftesbury Avenue is accessible by London Underground with Tottenham Court Road tube station (Central & Northern lines) at its northern end and Piccadilly Circus tube (Piccadilly & Bakerloo lines) at its southern tip where it merges into Regent Street and Piccadilly.
