Once the West End's most salubrious cottage, supposedly the haunt of Wilde, Orton, Gielgud & Crisp, CellarDoor is now London's cult cabaret bar, secreted beneath the Aldwych in a space just big enough for cats (both feline and human) to swing. We're open until 1AM seven nights a week with free acts from 9PM each evening including drag queens, femme fatales, magicians, crooners, burlesque beauties & more.

I went the CellarDoor on Saturday after the PRIDE celebrations with a friend. We had such a fun time- the crowd were really friendly. Great entertainment, venue and energy- danced all night long. Cocktails were amazing and cant wait to go back : )

Popped in here after eating nearby. We literally stumbled on this little hidden gem. Good music, surprising impromptu burlesque show we had no idea this place was so quirky. We danced all night. Definitely one to try. I will be back.

I brought a ticket to guarantee me entry before 8:00,but I arrived at 7:00 on a Saturday night and walked straight in. Very small but fun for a couple of cocktails before you really begin your night

i'd buy the ticket. you could be lucky and it could be an utterly slow night. most likely it will be packed and you won't want to crowd in. or you might not even be able to get in. if it's your prime destination... More

All the times I've been (no reservation) there is no entry fee but there is service charge when a show is on.
