Everything you need to know about Notting Hill Carnival
Proud Cabaret City
This Mark Lane spot is from the Proud group - a chain perhaps best known for its live music space, Proud Camden. This City venue is part of a successful venture into the cabaret scene, with sister venues both in Camden and down on the south coast, in Brighton. There's an art deco, speakeasy feel to things here, with much of the cabaret following aesthetic suit. Shows range from music, burlesque and vaudeville to circus acts, fire-play and risqué dance. Keep an eye out for DJ nights, too. Food doesn't play second fiddle to the music. There's global influence, so expect Thai steamed mussels and sticky yakitori chicken skewers alongside fillet steaks served with black truffle butter, sea bass with a chilli and rosemary crust, and roasted turbot steak served with steamed samphire, salsify and hollandaise sauce.
Venue says: “Our flagship 1920s speakeasy venue is located in the heart of London’s financial district.”
