An elegant City destination, London���s famed Proud Cabaret nightspot and restaurant is modelled on a 1920s speakeasy, exuding all the glamour of a decadent bygone era. Designed by Russell Sage Studios and Danielle Proud, the venue, located just moments from Fenchurch Street, is darkly impressive, not only in its setting but in its notoriously titillating and extravagant programme of entertainment. A constantly changing list of events ensures guests enjoy something new and exciting every visit, from the best music played by top DJs to beautiful burlesque performances, live jazz sounds and clever cabaret, all by well known and breaking acts. Special event parties, one off's and series��� alike, provides an extra surprise and, of course, whenever you visit you���ll be treated to not just captivating cocktails and mouthwatering moonshine but superbly executed British dishes enjoyed retro Hollywood supperclub style and an informal bar menu featuring lighter offerings. After dining the Proud Cabaret party continues long in to the evening.

As a whole the group enjoyed the show and would recommend people to go on an offer basis. The service was rushed in parts, our plates of food were being cleared when we were still eating. Would have been nice to enjoy the food and not be rushed. In terms of drinks, the wrong drink turned up and... read more

A fantastic way to celebrate a significant birthday. From booking through to the end of the evening this was mostly seamless. We did have a little confusion on a dietary requirement for one of my guests, however this was rectified quickly and without a fuss. There were a diverse mix of couples/ singles and groups with all getting into the... More

Visited Proud Cabaret whilst on a hen weekend in London. We were quite pleased with our seats which was a booth right in front of the stage. The burlesque and cabaret show was more tasteful to other shows that I have seen before although there were not many dancers, they just reappeared in other costumes with a different persona. The...

Neighborhood Profile
City of London
From its ancient past as a Roman trading outpost to its 21st century status as the wealthiest square mile in the world, the financial district known simply as “The City” is one of London's most historic and fascinating neighborhoods. Here high rise office towers such as Norman Foster’s Gherkin mingle with Roman ruins and architectural marvels from virtually every era in between, including Christopher Wren's glorious St.Paul's Cathedral, and John Soane's dauntingly classicist Bank of England. This neighborhood is also home to some of the finest restaurants and plushest hotels in Europe, in addition to an assortment of watering holes, upscale shops, and Tube stations. During the week, the City is abuzz with white collar workers going about their business; the weekend sees this area turn into a quiet haven for sightseers.
