Pantheon was built by James Wyatt. This opened on 28 Apr. 1772, and was designed as an indoor Ranelagh or Vauxhall. It was a popular place for balls, routs, and particu­larly masquerades. On 17 Feb. 1791 it became an opera house, the King's, Wyatt again being responsible for the necessary alterations, and on 14 Jan. 1792 it was burnt down. Rebuilt, it opened on 9 Apr. 1795, again for masquerades and other entertainments, until after further alterations it reopened on 27 Feb. 1812 as the Pantheon Theatre. Trouble over its licence and further damage by fire kept it closed from 1814 until in 1834 it was replaced by the Pantheon Bazaar, which in 1867 became the head office of Gilbeys, the wine merchants. In 1937 it was sold to Marks & Spencer, who erected a store on the site.
