Studio Five to open at iconic Wembley Park Studios

Thursday 16th May 2024 |

Located within the 1,200-capacity Troubadour Wembley Park Theatre, the stylish, standalone restaurant draws on the locale’s historic connection with music legends and pop culture icons to tune into a unique dining experience for North West London’s cultural neighbourhood. 

Set to open in June, Wednesdays through to Sundays, the restaurant is a short stroll from Wembley Park station. It promises to be a destination for those seeking an immersive experience steeped in a storied history. Live entertainment from an impressive roster of talent will take to the venue’s stage, visible from all tables within the restaurant. Special nostalgic throwback appearances and a wealth of opportunities for students from local schools are also planned.

Guests can look forward to indulging in standout dishes such as crispy fried whole aubergine with coconut raita, Blythburgh Pork cutlet with Kashmiri chilli, and a modern take on fish and chips accompanied by minted pea puree and chilli ketchup. Each dish complements the lively dinners, vibrant weekend brunches and mood-setting pre-and-post theatre dining experiences. 

Over the last century, the site on which Studio Five sits has been home to Fox Films, ITV, and Limehouse. In 1964 The Beatles performed there, and in 1991, just six months before his untimely death, Freddie Mercury recorded his final music video – These Are The Days Of Our Lives – at the studios. From 1993 to 2017 the site was operated by Fountain, who brought in huge shows such as The X Factor, Britain’s Got Talent, and the UK-based episodes of Friends.

Adding to the venue’s credentials are Studio Five’s co-owners Olivier Award-winning producersOliver Royds, and Broadway and West End theatre producer Tristan Baker. Between them, the pair have been behind countless innovative productions of recent years including David Bowie’s Lazarus (Troubadour Kings Cross Theatre); Guys & Dolls (West End, UK, International Tours);The Railway Children (Waterloo Station, Toronto Roundhouse, Kings Cross Theatre); and Disney’s Newsies for Runaway Entertainment. 

Oliver and Tristan plan to utilise their experience in the entertainment industry to pay homage to their site’s fascinating heritage. Sultry interiors incorporating rich velvets, warm metal finishes and dark reclaimed oaks will embody a laid back, luxe speakeasy vibe and allow the existing character of the building to shine through.
