Listed Status: II*Graces Alley
This well-executed bar is in Wilton's, London's oldest surviving music hall, built in 1859 to bring West End glamour to the East End. It has been rescued from near-dereliction and is Grade II*-listed. Evidence of its chequered history has been retained by bare bricks, varying levels and odd doorways. The papier mƒch‚ bar front has been restored incorporating the remaining fabric and some plaster panels survive on the walls. Seating is an eclectic collection of tables and chairs. Real ales and meals. The hall still has a programme of theatre and music all year round and can be viewed outside performance times. Open evenings only and closed on Sundays.
