I love burlesque, I'm no connoisseur but I've enjoyed numerous shows and also been part of a couple shows as a musician. This place is ok but needs more and better quality actual acts and far less of the loud and unentertaining compere... Pros - - The decor is pretty. Very kitsch and a little tacky but pretty enough. -... More

Decor: lovely booths Accessories provided in our package were a wee bonus. The cons: The price because the food was truly awful from start to finish. We have paid far less for far... More

Firstly they try to bribe you with free shots to write a good review on facebook and TripAdvisor which is always a sign of a bad establishment. If you are good people will leave good reviews. The food was terrible! We arrived at 7.15 and the bread olives and chef's special appetisers were already on the table! The bread was... More

First off, food is decidedly average. However, as long as you realise not to take this place too seriously, then the service is good and extremely friendly (thank you Renata) and the entertainment is better than we expected. Get drunk and loosen up and you will have a smile on your face.

An elegant City destination, London���s famed Proud Cabaret nightspot and restaurant is modelled on a 1920s speakeasy, exuding all the glamour of a decadent bygone era. Designed by Russell Sage Studios and Danielle Proud, the venue, located just moments from Fenchurch Street, is darkly impressive, not only in its setting but in its notoriously titillating and extravagant programme of entertainment. A constantly changing list of events ensures guests enjoy something new and exciting every visit, from the best music played by top DJs to beautiful burlesque performances, live jazz sounds and clever cabaret, all by well known and breaking acts. Special event parties, one off's and series��� alike, provides an extra surprise and, of course, whenever you visit you���ll be treated to not just captivating cocktails and mouthwatering moonshine but superbly executed British dishes enjoyed retro Hollywood supperclub style and an informal bar menu featuring lighter offerings. After dining the Proud Cabaret party continues long in to the evening.

Neighbourhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighbourhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighbourhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
