We went in a group, for a birthday. The drinks are expensive and the food was nice, I ordered the beef, and that is what I got with some leaves of spinach and gravy. If you want chips or anything you have to pay extra quite disgusting when you are paying nearly £70 a head. The show was cheesy, enjoyable but again not worth the money, it was over quickly and I have been to Burlesque nights before that have been much cheaper and lasted the evening. Although we all had a good time it was a very expensive night and not one I would recommend to anyone, better ways and places to spend money.

Volupte is a small lounge club come restaurant. There is a nice bar upstairs where you can get drinks and hangout and downstairs is where the shows are performed. We were escorted downstairs and the waiter was there very quickly to see if we needed anything. You can have a full meal or snacks we got some snacks and they were nice.

The decor is nice bits of it can do with being neatened but it doesn't take away the ambiance of the place. The staff are very professional and attentive.

The compare we had was excellent, it was excellen value for money as there were a few comedians all of whom were good and several burlesque performers - all of whom had a very unique act and were different levels of good.

It is an intimate settling so wherever you sit it's a good seat.

I think some of the meal prices were a bit high but from what I saw of what the others tables were receiving, you would enjoy your meal.

Overall a very good night would definitely recommend it.

I was so excited about seeing the James Bond Theme show for a friends birthday but to be honest it was a real let down. On arrival it looked great the upstairs bar was nice and the cocktails were good however cut to downstairs and I quickly was ready to leave! The food was OK, just ok though certainly not worth what we were charged but the show was incredibly poor.
Gracie the host actually had a great voice and I felt was a little wasted in the dingy club, it all looked very amateur once you were in the main room. Fabric thrown up anywhere and a make shift stage on the floor..... To add to this the acts were pretty poor. My friend had loved the Hurley burley burlesque show so we thought it would be a great treat or her birthday however the acts were very messy and lacked class, to be honest the whole thing felt like they'd thrown it together at lunchtime to make some cash.... A real shame as we were all really looking forward to the show.

The bar upstairs was lovely, cocktails were delicious. They were running late with taking us downstairs and the food was slow. The starters were not very nice, the main course was lovely and the desserts were ok.
The venue itself was not classy or well maintained. The pianist was fab, and the singer was great but I expected more along those lines. I was not expecting the strip joint shows that came out and I was not pleased. The magic show was inventive and there were lots of things that were good, but unless you really want to watch girls get basically naked there is no point going.
We paid for the vintage ball - there was no band. I was very disappointed in that in particular.

My husband & I were treated to the the show by friends. We started the evening with some amazing cocktails (fantastic selection with lots of sweets & puddings as themes - delicious!). The show was very entertaining, all of the beautiful ladies were very talented - amazing figures, very sexy! and we enjoyed every act, the pianist was very talented - we enjoyed his songs & the magician/compare pulled it all together - a great show all in all. The food was very good not the best but I ate and enjoyed all of the courses. We would definitely go again and would highly recommend to others for a thoroughly entertaining and rather different evening out. I would probably dress up a bit more in keeping with the theme next time - so many people had and they looked fab.
