5-9 Great Newport Street will be an exciting new development in London’s Theatreland, incorporating a 319-seat theatre, a 66-bedroom boutique hotel and a 160-cover high quality restaurant.
The concept was inspired by the Arts Theatre, a club designed in 1927 for anyone with an interest in the theatre. The subterranean theatre will utilise an innovative hydraulic system that can be inverted to provide a completely flat-floored auditorium as required.
