Cafe de Paris | West End Night Club

by - 10:55

The short description describes it as a theatrical 1920's nightclub, with opulent decor and VIP guests. Hosts comedy, burlesque and cabaret. That it most certainly is!

We booked via Goupon, which included a two course dinner and a Kir Royale, and we were treated to nearly two hours of entertainment ranging from amazing circus performers, comedy bands and burlesque. This was all tied together by an amazing MC Rueben Kaye who has an abundant of flair and picked on the guests quite a lot. The MC was the "Queen of Australia" and used it to his advantage to raise a lot of laughs. Warning though, if you're easily offended by rude and sexual jokes then this isn't the place for you.

This is the sort of place that attracts Hen Parties and we had two in that night. One was a respectable 20 somethings crowd and the other was a rowdy 'less than intelligent' 30 something essex chavs. One had to be told to keep quiet numerous times by the staff. There were plenty of birthdays and a few anniversaries as well and each celebration was treated to a dessert with a sparkler to mark the occasion.

For starters, I had the Pork Rillettes and it was no more than a canape. A bit of pate on two very small pieces of toasted bread. Mrs Mayochup had Salmon Tartare and that was lovely. Definitely had food envy!

Main courses arrived and I ordered the Prime Ribeye Steak with Peppercorn Sauce. I was a bit nervous in how it would turn out as I was never asked how I would like the steak cooked but thankfully, it came medium rare which is how I like it. Mrs Mayochup had the Moroccan Spiced Rump of Lamb and that was also very nice.

I would recommend Cafe de Paris as an evening out or for something to celebrate as the food is good but the real money is on the entertainment which runs from 8pm to 10pm. You can stay and dance away in the nightclub afterwards if you so wish however, the drinks are rather expensive. You give you and idea, you're looking at £6 per bottle of beer and £14 per cocktail but given it's location and 'exclusivity' in Central London, it comes as no surprise.

There is only one criticism I can give it that you share your table with other guests. I don't mind that so much as it is similar with Wagamama's however, the amount of people they cram on the table makes it a little uncomfortable. In total, there was 16 of us on a round table. To give us a little more room I would suggest no more than 12.

Search for it on Groupon and treat yourselves. It will be a night you won't forget.

Score: 8/10
