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.

Ladies, booze, and chocolate? Yes.

In a nutshell: Charlotte was our waitress and she was very attentive. The show was fast paced and the ladies were beautiful. Had some fantastic drinks. The Cheese Platter was epic.

I came here on the 6th Feb 2016 for my sister in laws hen do. Was unsure if it was my cup of tea and can honestly say it was one of the best nights I've ever had! The food was by far one of the better meals I've ever had in any restaurant. Our server Giuseppe had amazing customer... More

Few lads from work enjoyed an evening here at the end of last month. The food is good but bit on the sparse fancy side. The reviews about hidden extras is true, but the table dolly was exceptional. We would of liked here to come back with the beers a bit more often. The drinks are expensive, double figure cocktails......... More

I enjoyed the evening overall. But I was disappointed as the bill included the programme, which we didn't want, as well as charging us for a birthday cake which we didn't ask for and when it was offered to us we wasn't informed of a price. Also not including VAT in the price of the ticket but adding it to... More

What to say, from the greeting at the door to the look of the club it's everything you could want. Our greeter Adams was lively, friendly and stunning. Charlotte our waitress was attentive as she was beautiful. The drinks were well made and well priced. Very punchy cocktails. The acts were excellent. One of the best nights out I have... More

Nice venue and good food, disappointing service - I think due to the fact we went using a Groupon voucher we were sidelined and ignored.... no service for a good 20minutes even to get a drink, and had to ask for our complimentary cocktails. Food was tasty (waste of money ordering bread), but no waitress throughout the night and the... More

Having read a few negative reviews, I was very wary about this place. The final verdict is that it’s somewhere in the middle, neither amazing nor crap. The food is simply - ok. It won’t blow your mind and you might feel a bit ripped off when you pay £2 for two slices of the most plain, boring, crumbly white... More

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.
