Cellar door were having a bit of a nightmare that day with entertainment not showing up and a large group (us) arriving rudely late (sorry!) but they pulled it out of the bag big style! Thanks so much - great cocktails (Starbucks must die very very good) and fab entertainment. Thanks (et merci beaucoup)

Well I cannot think of a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon! Afternoon tea, blackjack, bubbles, jazz and burlesque. Well worth the money for 3 hours of unique fun. I cannot recommend this place enough. It was a really fantastic experience and one that we are already planning again. And the toilet doors!.........what a great laugh.

Cellardoor promises all that I like, cocktails, entertainment and burlesque and even thou a couple of reviews have been a bit bad I do like to see for myself. I have to agree with all the people that say this place is poor and not at all worth it. The cocktails are nice but 11 pounds a hit is far... More

Last night was the first time in a couple of years I revisited this unique bar. I remember how much I enjoyed the atmosphere and entertainment. I thought to show this bar and the Kit Kat Cabaret to my girlfriend. The bar is pretty the same which is good. The show could be a lot better. The performance themselves were... More

Not worth the trip. Music was boring, staff unfriendly, drinks over-priced and general decor pretentious.

I've been coming here whenever I visit London for the past four years. Needless to say, I absolutely adore this place. It's what introduced me to cocktails when I was nineteen and it's very, very hard to go wrong with a drink here. It is quite expensive and also very small, but the drinks are cheaper if you arrive before... More

Great quirky bar worth a visit. Good selection of drinks, cocktails are expensive even for London. It is very small as you would expect so seating is at a premium. Good experience however was completely let down by the rude bar staff

We arrived just before 8pm as we had paid for guaranteed entry, however this wasnt necessary as it wasnt particularly busy. It went in waves as Hen parties arrived/left. Staff were lovely, cocktails were good and plenty of free popcorn. The drag-act DJ was fun (although should probably save up for a better quality wig) but he/she had a great... More

Spent two nights here and loved it! Lovely venue, very small so much better for couples or small groups. It is also very discrete so it's nice and private. Staff were amazing. Drinks were priced well and the cocktails were to die for! The acts were brilliant!! I am a massive fan of burlesque and loved it! It is free... More
