Wilton Music Hall is best for...

Romantic Bars
Crumbling walls, decaying opulence, balconies and hidden rooms, Wiltonís Music Hall is romance. The Mahogany Bar hosts the majority of the action and you can smell the history in what is one of Londonís most beautiful old buildings. Find a corner, huddle up and drink it in.

Places with Wow Factor
Wiltonís is an All In London favourite, in fact it was once named our Venue of the Month on the basis of its wow factor. The old music hall is all about the preservation of the siteís heritage. Exposed brickwork, intimate tumbledown spaces and the very accommodating Mahogany Bar are all part of its charm.

Romantic Places
Thereís no denying the romance of the past and since Wiltonís is the worldís oldest surviving grand music hall, its intoxicating credentials are safe. Crumbling, dilapidated and all but derelict Ė the romantic setting for ping-pong tournaments, theatre and music - it will not disappoint. Itís survived two world wars and with the help of the Wiltonís trust this amazing monument to London will live much longer.

The All In London Review

"Wiltonís makes for the kind of place to show off the fantasy of London"

All In London Rating: 9 / 10
Added Mon 07 Nov 2011 - Reviewed by T.A.O


Secreted away at the end of an alley amongst the congestion of Tower Hill, it seems apt that as soon as you clap eyes on Wiltonís Music Hall the surroundings no longer seem to exist. With parts of it dating back to the early 1800ís, Wiltonís is a landmark of heritage that somehow manages to transcend its age with a current line-up of events and random jollies. A dilapidated building thatís kept sacred by the work of the Wiltonís Trust, the place has character by the (exposed) brick load. Crumbling walls, fairy lights, pianos and well-trodden boards make this a place that every Londoner should see. The Mahogany Bar itself may have lost the very bar it was named after, but that doesnít detract from the lively mix of in-the-know hipsters, locals and relic hunters who fill it with ease. Apart from this main room there is of course the main music hall, which brings you theatre, gigs, cabaret and recreations of the art of music hall entertainment itself. As if this werenít enough, there is also a Mezzanine Room in which to relax, as well as the Green Room that comes complete with ping-pong table for fans of the fashionable sport.

There are various snacks served in the bar Ė mainly consisting of filled beigels on this occasion Ė and a discerningly stocked bar, full of St. Peterís Ale along with a couple of draught beers. Wiltonís makes for the kind of place to show off the fantasy of London, and while the technology around us propels us ever faster into the future, the past is still where itís at
