WHERE YOU CAN SEE THEM
The Swan, Southwark is a reasonably priced restaurant that enjoys a privileged location overlooking the southern lifestyle. After a theater show you will be able to meet actors and celebrities. Some of the personalities we have met at The Swan include Mark Rylance, Dame Judi Dench, Stephen Fry, Jude Law and Derren Brown.
The informal aspect of the place means that you will probably meet higher level celebrities and have the opportunity to chat with them instead of watching them from afar.
The Ivy, Covent Garden is a great place to catch a glimpse of celebrities. It is also ideal for agent / client meetings if you forget that the prices are quite expensive partly because of the fact that you can see celebrities there. It is the most interesting place to meet celebrities and you are more likely to see celebrities there than anywhere else.
Joe Allen's, Covent Garden this American franchise is friendly and typical of New York breweries with brick walls, live piano music and an all-American menu. The prices are not excessive and the best time to see the stars is after the theater, around 10pm.
There are no private areas reserved for celebrities here so you can sit at the table next to them.
