Almeida Café Bar

The Almeida Café Bar is open from 11am to 11pm, Monday to Saturday.

The café is light and airy in the daytime, ideally situated just off Upper Street with Newspapers and Wi-Fi available. In the evening it becomes a lively bar for the public, audiences and actors alike. From pre-theatre eating to post-show grazing, the Almeida Café & Bar offers simple, quality dishes freshly prepared in our kitchen, good wines, great coffee, innovative cocktails and a warm welcome.

Simple, quality food, freshly prepared and locally sourced
We believe in small-scale, simple and sustainable. Our bread is baked across the road, our beer is brewed at Hammerton Brewery and our irresistible ginger beer is from Holloway’s Umbrella Brewing. We also serve Sacred Gin distilled in North London and we cook everything fresh in our small kitchen. Main dishes are served from 12pm – 7pm. Our bar menu, featuring toasted sandwiches and sharing platters are available before and after the performance.
