Top 5: London Cabaret Venues

4 January 2018 Katie Da Cunha Lewin

London is becoming quite the hub for the cabaret performance. You might be a newcomer to the wonders of live performance or you might know your stuff but have a read of our top five for some exciting new places to try this year.

Soho Theatre

The Soho Theatre put on an amazing variety of shows in their three-storey venue. They host a range of stand-up, experimental comedy and cabaret, performed by a diverse range of performers. The downstairs theatre, in particular, is perfect for an intimate cabaret experience, with its low stage and small tables. Look out for touring shows from international favourites.

The Soho Burlesque Club takes place every Saturday at the Hippodrome Casino in Leicester Square, the heart of the West End. Miss Polly Rae comperes an evening of glitz and glamour with a range of guest acts, and regulars such as Kitty Bang Bang, Laurie Hagen and Phil Ingud.

The London Cabaret Club
 
After hosting their first event in 2013, the London Cabaret Club has built up quite a reputation for hosting original cabaret performances. They combine shows with high-end dining to give you a sophisticated and glamorous evening out. They run two successful shows, the James Bond-inspired ‘London Never Dies’ and ‘Best of British Pop’ celebrating British pop music.
 
The London Cabaret Club is in Fitzrovia.

Royal Vauxhall Tavern
 
The Royal Vauxhall Tavern proudly celebrates queer performance, putting on a variety of live shows featuring a diverse range of acts. It aims to be an exciting and welcoming space for London’s LGBTQ community. In particular, look out for their infamous night ‘Duckie’, on every Saturday.

Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club
 
Just a short walk from Bethnal Green tube station is the Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club. They’ve been a social club since 1887, and now host a range of social events, from the sedate to the slightly more unusual. With nights like ‘Double R’, hosted by Benjamin Louche, and ‘Pussy Liquor: Garden of Eden’ a rowdy evening celebrating the more sinful things in life, this eclectic venue will definitely offer you something different.
