This new venue in Palace Street SW1 is so close to Buckingham Palace, the corgis could almost walk their on their own. We previewed the first jazz gig there – and the rest of the season – by interviewing Carol Grimes a couple of weeks ago, and now, with Carol’s gig having happened last night…. it’s open. The best place to keep informed about future events are Dorian Ford’s blog and the St James Theatre website. Reports of sightings of corgis – or anything else to do with this new venue – welcome – I wonder how the room will work for different kinds of performers….). A propos of nothing in paticular, I’ve tried the bar food a couple of times and would definitely recommend that: a restaurant which doesn’t insist you have a full meal has to be a very good thing indeed!
