This is a great place to go to with a group of friends. Very quirky and unusual. There were different cabaret style performances and a really great vibe. You can hire booths but visibility of the shows isn’t great. Recommend!

Definitely try this place out! We had a wicked girls night out - equally there were couples & mixed groups of pals too. Lovely cocktails, fab music, amazing artists, friendly & intimate setting. It’s stepping into a magical film set. 100% do this!

Clerkenwell
Owing to its proximity to Smithfield Market – the site
of an ancient meat market which remains in operation
today – Clerkenwell boasts a plethora of globally
renowned restaurants, fabulous local eateries, and
some of London's favorite pubs. This isn't merely a
focal point for all things foodie though. Spend enough
