The new concept has been inspired by The Alhambra Theatre of Variety – a popular music hall open from 1854 to 1936, located at the site of the current Leicester Square Odeon. Adventure Bar’s latest project has been designed by Finch Interiors and will honour the former venue with its décor and theme – a reflection of a typical night of fun for performers at The Alhambra during its prime. The Lost Alhambra will add to other concept bars in the capital managed by the Adventure Bar Group, including The Escapologist, Tonight Josephine, and Bar Elba.

Tom Kidd, Co-Founder of Adventure Bar Group, commented: “Each of our bars is different – we work hard to ensure that wherever possible we build a concept based on local history, and the site at Leicester Square is a great example of where we have been able to do this. Shelley Sandzer secured a site that works perfectly for our brand, and we look forward to The Lost Alhambra bringing debaucherous times back to this prime central London location!”
