That’s starting to change. The acts we selected to pose alongside Steve Coogan for our Soho-themed issue – shot at Madame Jojo’s, one of the district’s most venerable venues – all strut their stuff in the heart of Soho on a regular basis in wildly different ways.
And they’re far from alone, with corking established nights at the Café de Paris (from the Black Cat gang on Fridays and the Wam Bam Club on Saturdays), ‘Mat Ricardo’s London Varieties’ once a month at the Leicester Square Theatre and various Soho bars launching cabaret nights almost every week…
This Clapham DJ bar is also a restaurant, with a fairly simple menu combining Middle Eastern, American and Mediterranean influences. There is an extensive selection of burgers priced from £5 to £12. The wine list starts at £16 and cocktails cost £8-£9. Gigalum has a Happy Hour till 8pm Monday through Friday and till 5pm Saturday and Sunday.
