Upstairs at The Gatehouse is a small pub theatre in Highgate in the London Borough of Camden.

The venue is a refurbished 1895 auditorium, upstairs from the Gatehouse pub, that has served over the years as a music hall, cinema, Masonic lodge, and a jazz and folk music club that once hosted a performance by Paul Simon.[1] Today, the venue hosts theatrical and cabaret productions.[2] It has presented a mix of off-beat and mainstream shows, including an all-female version of Hamlet,[3] modernistic interpretation of opera classics[4] and new musicals and dramas.[5][6]

In 2012 they staged a sellout run of Guys and Dolls as well as a new stageplay Iceberg - Right Ahead! to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the maiden voyage of RMS Titanic.[citation needed]

In July 2013 a revival of Noël Coward's 1956 satirical comedy Nude with Violin had a three-week run staged by the Logos Theatre Company.[citation needed]

Upstairs at the Gatehouse is run by Ovation Theatres Limited, whose two directors John and Katie Plews have served for over twenty years. The Gatehouse pub is a Wetherspoon property.[citation needed]
