Although we had a few problems to begin with just managing to get the tickets sorted out for the Friday night show, we arrived at the club impressed with the atmosphere and dedication to the burlesque theme. The waitress was in character, sexily dressed as a school girl and the music pumping from the speakers was sufficiently dark and Gothic... More

Interesting to read the varied reviews for Bohemia Cabaret! We went on a Saturday night. Loved the ambience of the venue. Small and intimate, dimly lit with great 20s music. Bohemia doesn't pretend to be up-market and what they do works. I do agree with another reviewer that they were understaffed and service was slow, but personally we didn't mind... More

The Friday show is a waste of time. Two burlesque numbers and one cabaret number dragged out over 2 & 1/2 hours! Terrible!

I have been to bohemia quite a few times and adore the atmosphere and decor, the food is a taste of old European style and I was feeling brave and tried the borscht, lovely! The new Friday night setting for the underground is awesome and the show never disappoints with sexual exploration and adult fun, and the host is so... More

Cabaret disappointing. Half of the programme at the front and the other half at the back. The dinner was surprising OK for the price and considering it is not "restaurant" quality. This is the first time I have had beetroot soup (cold) but I loved it.

Do not go on a Sunday night. Unattractive, unprofessional and boring. Walked out before the end. Not sexy, not funny, not entertaining!!

This place isn't managed by anyone that knows about running a restaurant.The kitchen is under staffed. The waiters do not know how to prepare the tables...I.e setting the tables with cutlery, glasses does help! The owner spends her time on stage cracking basic rude jokes. Don't bother.

I booked a table for four of us well in advance and we ended up with a show mainly consisting of the backs of the cast. Having said that.... What a show!!! Spectacular host on stage- mama has a fantastic voice, great interaction with the audience and a comedian! Food was very good but they are just tapas so don't... More
