It's a great venue with good music, atmosphere and wonderful show. However, I rang the place in advance to ask if cameras were allowed on the show, and made clear what kind of camera I had, they confirmed I was going to be allowed to take pictures during the show and not to worry. I made the effort to take a camera, only to be told right there that cameras were NOT ALLOWED. I was very disappointed as they could have told me that on the phone and I would not have bothered with a nice Nikon to look after.

Madame Jojo's is currently closed pending a review of its licence.
Part of Paul Raymond's extensive Soho empire, this late-night cabaret/burlesque/drag/DJ club and live music venue has a long and colourful history. It specialises in – but by no means limits itself to – showcases from emerging major label acts, or successful overseas artists hoping to crack the UK. It's home (every Tuesday) to popular and reliably hip, live alternative music night White Heat and (every Thursday) superior cabaret showcase Bête Noire. Look out too for the terrific fortnightly Magic Night.

I just had my hen night at madame jojo's we had the package with food and we all enjoyed it with some sing along tunes the drag queens looked amazing a real fun night out with the girls and all my friends have been raving about it since i will definitely be going there again soon!
Almost a two hour drive to get there for a pre-booked table and meal only to be told lastminute.com hadn't sent on our booking to them. Right now I should be annoyed with lastminute.com, but when the staff said they were not surprised and that it happened often then you have to ask yourself why Madam JoJo’s are desperate enough to use the inept services of lastminute.com. Some of the other reviews here sound like they’ve been written by fanboys/girls. I'm sure they had a great time, but my bad booking experience aside, some acts are good, some are not so good. Typical cabaret I guess. The venue is OK, but a bit small, certainly smaller than expected. Quite a few people were standing due to lack of seats so I recommend not pre booking, getting there early, and avoid the toilets as much as possible. I may go again, but I’m not planning it.
Just spent New Years Eve at madam Jojo's ....... Fantastic! The Burlesque was fantastic fun and the girls were excellent! The music was great ....just right for the party! Looking to go again soon
