An evening to be Proud of

In less than two years, Proud Cabaret has become one of London's most lavish cabaret and burlesque venues, fusing retro Hollywood supper club with the glamour of Weimar-era Berlin.

Located in the heart of The City, the venue is modelled on a 1920s speakeasy. Guests descend two flights of stairs and enter a lavish yet intimate world of plush booths, leather banquets and velvet curtains. It's like being transported back to a bygone age of illicit luxury.

Other than the waitresses in period burlesque uniforms, perhaps the most striking aspect of Proud Cabaret is the attention to detail. This is manifested in the dry ice on entry that gives the room its smokey ambience (albeit without the smell), the candelabras on perfectly laid tables and the sumptuous menu, designed and prepared by chef Finlay Logan.

For our visit, we were fortunate enough to be seated in one of the recently refurbished VIP areas; tiered  banquettes that recreate the 1920s theatre experience. Dinner and wine were the ideal aperitif for the main course of the evening: the show by The Tassel Club, Cirque du Cabaret.

Once Hula Boy had performed his dizzying finale (we recommend you go see it for yourself) and exited stage left to rapturous applause , the tables were cleared and a DJ dressed like a Fifties usherette got the guests dancing well into the night.

Proud Cabaret makes for a memorable evening out, and one in which the audience makes almost as much effort with their attire as the staff and performers. We recommend it wholeheartedly and suggest you find out more at www.proudcabaret.com
