Originally built in 2012 under the name of the St James Theatre, The Other Palace is the brand new venue that officially opened in 2017. Hosting a 312 capacity main theatre space as well as a smaller 120 capacity studio, the theatre is synonymous with playing new musical works and small-scale cabarets.

St James Theatre was built on the site of the former Westminster Theatre, which burned down in 2002. It then re-opened in 2012 with a production of Sandi Toksvig’s Bully Boy. Since then, the theatre has enjoyed a stream of successes, with most notable productions including the world premiere of Urinetown (2014), which later transferred to the West End's Apollo Theatre. Further stand-out musicals included Miss Atomic Bomb (2016), starring Catherine TateThe Last 5 Years, starring Samantha Barks and Broadway's Rent.

Purchased by Andrew Lloyd Webber in 2016, the venue transformed into The Other Palace and is dedicated to hosting new and rarely-performed musicals. The venue re-opened under the leadership of Paul Taylor Mills in February 2017 with The Wild Party, starring Frances Ruffelle.

Further musicals include Duncan Sheik’s early musical Whisper House (2017), followed by circus extravaganza La Strada (2017).
