The Cuckoo Club is where London's It kids and art stars come to eat, drink, and be merry. This exclusive rock-chic club and boutique restaurant is located on Swallow Street in the heart of Mayfair, and the luxe address and glossy furnishings have attracted the likes of hip A-listers like Orlando Bloom, Brandon Flowers and Natalie Portman. Dinner at Cuckoo is guaranteed to excite, and the restaurant is suitable for every occasion from client cocktail-schmoozing to bespoke dinner parties with friends. The modern Euro menu by Rupert Blease is superb - highlights include the pan-fried Diver scallops in a pine nut paste with chorizo and rocket; and the char-grilled aged beef with smoked mashed potatoes.

Posh nightclub but poor music

I've been to Cuckoo in a Halloween party and in a Friday's night. The localization is very good and it's difficult to recognize the club from the street if you pass in front of it in the sunlight. During the night you can see luxury cars and nice people around there. As it's a membership club, it's... read more

The Cuckoo Club are racist people. My friend and I stood in the for ages and then finally got to the front. Despite the bouncer attending to those behind us first and me reminding him that he had not attended to us, the woman with the checklist was just a lying thing. She looked me in the eyes and said...

I have lived in London for 15 years. I have never experienced such a bad taste... People gathering there seemed to be superficial and distasteful. Some of them were quite rude. It was like a time travel to the 1990, being surrounded by people who were trying to look like someone special in an old fashioned way. Waiters and bar... More

8 of us went on the off chance after dinner to celebrate a friends 30th, with one of our party having been a few times. The bouncers immediately let the four girls (our wives) in and told the rest of us it would be a few minutes. 30minutes later we were still outside and decided to leave, having watched easily...

London clubbing has been going down hill lately but this actually turned into quite a good night, good looking crowd and not to packed. You will need a table if you want to get the most of it which will cost a few pennies but go in a group and you'll be fine. Enjoy the music upstairs and the chilled... More

Staying in Mayfair

Neighborhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
