Propstore Pop-up Cafe at The National Theatre on The South Bank

The National Theatre has re-opened Propstore, the pop-up diner, cafe & bar outside its building in association with American Express.  The cafe is made of old scenery and sets from its productions, and filled with some favourite props from major productions.  Tip - try the Scotch Eggs - they're amazing.

"The National Theatre’s unique pop-up riverfront cafĂ©-bar Propstore returns this summer for a second year, featuring a brand new collection of props and scenery from recent National Theatre productions. Propstore will be open seven days a week throughout the summer from 3 May – 28 September from 12 noon daily, serving a selection of delicious street-food, English wines, Meantime Brewery Fresh Beer and Sipsmith spirits. There will be DJ’s and live music playing at the weekend until 2am.

The new incarnation of Propstore will include House of Commons scenery and benches from This House, the cityscape backdrop and spiral staircase from The Captain of Kopenick and the Victorian fireplace and mirror featured in The Magistrate. Scattered around the bar will be a variety of props and costumes including Ian McKellen’s suit of armour from Richard III, Luke Treadaway’s original train sets from The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time and Cillian Murphy’s tape deck from Misterman.
The kitchen will be serving English street food classics such as pan haggerty, pulled pork sandwiches and steak and ale rissoles. Spirits from Sipsmith, English wines courtesy of Three Choirs vineyards, Gloucestershire and draught beer from London brewery Meantime make for a predominantly English drinks list. Friday and Saturday nights will see Propstore transformed with DJ’s and live music until 2am."
