We say

A stones throw from the birthplace of William Shakespeare, this converted methodist church is the scene of more modern day theatricals. Barmen spin bottles, pop corks and slide glasses in the downstairs cocktail bar of No.1 Shakespeare St, the place to go for a nights entertainment in the centre of town. Set over two floors, this contemporary establishment boasts a suave, stylish ambience that is matched by food of the highest standard and a beverage list so long you could return every night to try a different tipple. Tapas, served downstairs, is the ideal warm up with a group of friends, before you head up to the venue space, 'the chapel' where live music and entertainment ranges from local folk groups, to touring DJ sets, to comedy gigs and open mic nights. Indeed the eclectic line-up is fast earning No.1 Shakespeare St the title of 'best live music venue in Warwickshire' and for good reason - the central stage creates a wonderfully intimate atmosphere. Yet for all its late night charisma and party atmosphere, the place retains its classy touch. Service is excellent, food is fresh and the menus change seasonally, making the liveliest venue in town a great place to simply enjoy a tasty meal and sip on a cocktail or three.
