Espresso Bar

Espresso Bar at the National Theatre

Espresso Bar

Delicious coffees, freshly made cakes, sandwiches and snacks.

The National Theatre’s Espresso Bar is staffed full of talented baristas using Mozzo’s 100% Arabica Red Label coffee beans to make a brilliant but simple range of coffees.

Be it to stay or takeaway, make sure to pick up a National Theatre Loyalty Card. Valid in all of our bars and cafés, buy 9 hot drinks and the next one is on us. We’ll even make it a large.

We’ve also have a great selection of cakes, pastries, snacks and sandwiches; plus a wide range of soft drinks, wines and craft beers.

Voted one of the top 50 independent coffee shops in London by the Evening Standard, the Espresso Bar is your gateway to the rest of the theatre. Come during the day and take a seat in the Lyttelton foyer where you can relax, have a meeting or catch up on some studying. Or visiting us for a show? Then grab a drink and a bite to eat, kick back and wait for the house to open.

Find us on Theatre Square on the corner of the National Theatre, next to Waterloo Bridge.
