  • Visitor Information

The Corner StoreThis warm-welcoming pub in the West End is home to London's award-winning five-nights-a-week boutique comedy club The Funny Side of Covent Garden. Renowned for its good burgers and roasts, The Corner Store is a friendly place to drink (it has nice, comfy sofas and quirky cinema-style folding chairs) and has a large function room available for hire. Given its location, the pub is popular with tourists and students. Recent gripes have been made about staff being slightly stuffy.

The Funny Side of Covent Garden runs shows five nights a week (Wed-Sun) at The Corner Store and has a second venue in the City for Thursday night shows. The club claims to offer an upmarket yet friendly alternative to the usual London comedy experience, with the British Theatre Guide describing the West End venue as "a firmly established favourite on the London comedy circuit ? an evening of original, laugh-out-loud comedy". With space for just 60-odd people, the Funny Side is normally always sold out and so it's best to book in advance. Having opened its doors in 2006, the Covent Garden venue won the best small comedy venue category in the Chortle Awards 2007. The club also runs twice monthly comedy courses in association with Sprout Ideas. See www.thefunnyside.info for details and full listings.
