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.

Very bad show...

The show was really horrible. Food wasnt so good as i though it would be. Service was 5 out of 10. Only staff behind the bar was friendly and nice. Try it your self and you will see. Definitely never go there again.

I tried this place again almost a year from my last visit. Again in a party & again great food, dreadful service by miserable bad attitude waitresses who really should be working in a prison canteen with more poor entertainment.

This was a works night out. The atmosphere was good the smoke set the scene. I was a little dissapointed with the show as i was expecting more burlesque. The compare was funny if a little crass. Food was good but drinks very expensive. The waitress was good very attentive. Glad i tried it. We did have a giggle

Wow, as a burlesque 'virgins' we weren't sure what to expect, but on entering a fabulous cabaret room greeted by sexy staff we took our seats. The food was excellent, albeit the package expensive, and the drinks were also very expensive. There are lots of comfort ale booths but we were sat on very hard very very uncomfortable wooden chairs.... More

We went to Proud for my boyfriends big 40 birthday and what a great night. The staff were so friendly, accommodating and sexy. The entertainment was excellent and a great club after, it is just sad that the public transport in London let's us down, as needed to get the famous last train home. I would advise this place to...

We actually went to Proud in Mark Lane, in the City of London. There are also clubs in Camden and Brighton. The burlesque cabaret was outstanding, the service was first class and the food excellent. The staff were friendly and attentive and couldn't do enough to make everyone feel comfortable and happy. The atmosphere was just right, old-time speakeasy. Spot... More

Went on a Saturday night with 6 girlfriends for a birthday. It Is a perfectly nice underground venue, probably good to get a table by the stage for atmosphere. The food was surprisingly good considering only £49 for 3 courses in central London - the lamb cutlets in particular were excellent. The drinks policy was rather odd, that you get... More
