Despite the name, the entertainment here comes not from clowns in collapsible cars or daring young men on the flying trapeze but from a new breed of cabaret acts: the long banquet table doubles as a catwalk-cum-stage for fire-eaters, burlesque acts and dancers.
If the entertainment doesn’t make your retinas wince, then the gleaming white floors and walls might. The bar and dining areas are a little spartan, but there’s a softer lounge area if it all seems too clinical.
The drinks list delivers classic cocktails with a twist: bellinis made with blood peaches, margaritas made with hibiscus juice and agave nectar. The food is high-end (that is, pricey) pan-Asian dishes: star anise duck confit, Josper beef fillet steak. The scene gets clubby at weekends with regular DJs and even dancing on the tables.
