Cabaret Des Distractions by Tigz Rice Studios 2014.

This longstanding Leicester Square nightspot must be doing something right - bar a short time during the '40s it's been open for more than 90 years. During that time it's played host to some pretty big acts, from Sinatra and Tony Hancock to Grace Kelly, Noel Coward and Marlene Dietrich.  

Today it's more about cabaret and dining, with the nightclub side of things available for those partial to a party. Expect more than a little tassel twirling titillation with burlesque a big part of the output, but there's also music, magic, jazz and more. Drinks can be enjoyed up on the mezzanine, too.

Giving Cafe de Paris one star is really far more than they deserve. A terrible venue with disgustingly rude staff who seem set out to make themselves feel important by ruining your night. It's an outdated, overpriced 'club' that no one who lives in London would ever go to. Once a diamond of the London club scene - it's now nothing more than an embarrassment.


Absolutely DISGUSTING treatment!! DO NOT GO! I booked for my birthday and received a polite email confirming saying there was an On Site Events Manager to deal with any issues. Incredibly RUDE, AGGRESSIVE, ACCUSING bouncers refused to listen or let me speak to a manager. We arrived around 10:30 as requested after only two drinks and were treated disgustingly! Ruined my birthday !!!!!!!!!! Maybe if you're from a wealthy background they might treat you nicely. Doesn't deserve one star

Me and a few girls were lining up to go in because it was her birthday they seemed like they were in a rush to get us in? Within 2 minutes we were told to step out of the queue? There were 7 of us and we had some serious money to spend! We just wanted to have a good time. Anyways we were dressed appropriately so the only other conclusion is they are RACIST! All of us were black girls but we did not think that would be an issue? Seriously don't even bother going if your black, you will just get embarrassed. Thanks a lot Cafe de Paris for making us feel like were back in slavery days


Amazing club with many beautiful girl and nice service. The line to the club is very long so better to be on guest list (Lux guest list is perfect (077 7509 2749 ). I really appreciate the music and great vibes ! I'll return soon !

Went there for my wife birthday with some friends and we had a fantastic time. All the staff were lovely and made us feel very special. Loved the show and we stayed until late dancing in the VIP section! Highly recommended

I've been to the cabaret dinner and show a couple of times and it is always a great experience. The venue is just magic and fits perfectly with the type of show. Food was good quality and drinks as you should expect in the West End. The staff know what they are doing. I will definitely go back there.
