My husband booked the dinner and cabaret as part of a weekend of activities he'd planned. The restaurant was only half full which surprised me for a Saturday night. The Cabaret restaurant is situated in the basement, there is an upstairs restaurant/bar but this is not included in the Privee Dinner & Burlesque Cabaret offer. The evening comprised of a 3 course meal, a champagne cocktail, half a bottle of wine, and a shooter cocktail each, followed by a burlesque show. The meal - Served from 7pm, and included in the cost is a limited set menu to choose from (3 starter options, 3 mains, and 2 desserts) and some additional dish options to choose from but you have to pay extra for. They do not easily cater for allergies or dietary requirements - I am allergic to wheat so I struggled with a lot of the menu. Our waitress was very nice and asked the kitchen for some guidance, sadly the response back was there was little they could do. They could exclude elements of some dishes such as sauces and sides, but couldn't do a huge amount for me. This meant that a most of the dishes included in the price we'd paid, were either off limits to me entirely or I couldn't eat a significant part of them. This was quite tricky but fortunately I was able to do a bit of a mix and match and opted for the Lamb from the supplementary menu (which we had to pay extra for) accompanied by the quinoa side from one of the included mains. Dessert was simply vanilla ice cream which was intended as an accompaniment to 1 of the 2 inclusive puddings, neither of which I could have. The food we ate was nice (the lamb was very juicy and flavoursome) but due to the limited choice meant I had no alternative but to select from dishes I had to pay more for. So that brings me on to the Burlesque cabaret - we went on a Saturday night. The show starts at 9pm and if it wasn't for the hostess with the mostest, Delores Deluxe, who totally made the show, it would have been flat. Delores' singing, humour and overall sense of fun is the life and soul of the show. Alongside Delores Deluxe, performing that night was 2 members of the Folly Mixtures, a London burlesque troupe, who performed a couple of routines, and a belly dancer whose name escapes me. All were billed as being from the international stage, but to be brutally honest, although they were fun, their sets was very brief and seemed quite inexperienced. I've been to several cabaret and burlesque nights including the London burlesque festival, over the years, and I wasn't blown away. All in all we had an ok/good (not great or amazing) night, the food was nice, (not delicious or outstanding), and we didn't bother to hang around for the dancing afterwards. Is this somewhere I'd recommend to my friends to go to? In short, to be honest, no. I'd tell them to go to Cafe de Paris instead! @DeloresDeluxe you are wasted here!!!

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Knightsbridge
When millions of tourists want to shop 'til they drop, they do it along Brompton Road and its boutique-lined tributaries, including the world-renowned Harrods. And when millionaires want to flaunt what they've already got, many of them find Knightsbridge and Belgravia the perfect place to do so, often behind stately mansion walls or down quiet private mews. Delve beyond the ultra-luxe exterior and you'll find some of this city's cosiest pubs, quiet gardens, and all sorts of indie retailers and enterprises worth a short exercise in spontaneous window shopping. For those looking to take a break from shopping, Hyde Park, Kensington Gardens, and some of the city's most popular museums are nearby.

Burlesque night
Apr 2018 • Couples
What a pleasant surprise this was!

I bought a Groupon voucher for a burlesque and meal evening for two people so expectations were tempered. But I was impressed by the venue, staff and food. The entertainment wasn’t bad either with attractive dancers and a MC/Comedian who grew on you the longer the night went on (alcohol may help here)!

This is a place which deserves a visit for a fun evening.

Lovely but small
Jun 2018
We came here recently and really enjoyed the show and dinner! The dinner was great, the tables though are very small. The show was lovely but they only did a few dances and acts. It was very short and not worth the price for a cabaret show. I would recommend adding more acts for entertainment.

Groupon booking

Great night's entertainment.

Top tip: get a Groupon voucher.

Remember that there is a service charge at full price of the overall package. If you read the small print, you won't be in for a shock.

Too many people are marking the place down because they failed to read the small print.

I have not visited this the venue as of yet but have brought a voucher. The reviews on line where not so great so I was a little worried. To put my mind at rest I called the venue and spoke to a lovely lady called Natasha who I must say was so helpful and answered all my questions. Normally I would read a review and when it is negative I would not visit that place but I was glad that I made that call. I am really looking forward to going and will keep you updated on how the night went. I will be going sometime this year
