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.

Getting in was quite tedious, took about 5 minutes for the guy to find our booking, we were part of a hen do, and we were meeting the people there, so we didn't know how big the group was, it was a bit like the Spanish Inquisition to start with. We got down there and there was no one at... More

Gorgeous in every respect. Not a place to go on a budget. Beautiful location, food good for what it is and drink no more or less expensive than most other of the smarter London bars. The waitresses though are lovely and stunning, the acts and production are professional. You get what you pay for, you will pay a lot but... More

We visited Proud using a Groupon deal, which allowed us a 3 course meal, a cocktail and access to the cabaret show. All of it was completely worth the money, and our friend, whose birthday it was, was suitably happy. Our waiter for the evening, Amdrei, was the perfect host and ensured that all our needs were catered for (one... More

It was my friends birthday. She purchased vouchers from groupon. Three people were not able to make it although the vouchers were bought and they charged her £25 extra per head that did not show up. This is a little ridiculous considering you've paid for them already to be there. So be warned! What I found displeasing is that they... More

I bought a Groupon voucher for my boyfriend's birthday. Amazing experience and food! Dennis was always checking on us and made sure everything was going well... I'll definitely come here again.

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 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.
