Adventure 7: Circus

#JOESLONDONBUCKETLIST: 30 Adventures Before 30

I’m Joe – and I’ve challenged myself to complete 30 of the 50 activities in my book The London Bucket List before my 30th birthday. The challenge was set exactly 30 weeks before my birthday on 1 October. You can read about all of the activities I’ve completed so far here. You can download an electronic version of The London Bucket List at the bottom of this post – or buy the paperback here.

What is Circus?

You’ve not experienced fancy dinner until you’ve dined with pole dancers and acrobats performing just a few feet from your meal.

The pan-Asian menu at this Covent Garden cocktail bar is beyond delicious, but it’s the glamourously talented cabaret acts that make this a night to remember.

How Was it?

We dropped in for a couple of cocktails and were treated to some spectacular shows.

The lengthy banquet tables doubled up as a catwalk for burlesque dancers, drag queens and trapeze artists.

A fantastic start to our Friday night.

Is it a good date idea?

Absolutely. A great spot for casual drinks or a fancy dinner.

Dinner and a show has never been intertwined so spectacularly – and there’s plenty of spots in Covent Garden to bounce to afterwards.

If you stay late on the weekends, expect party anthems and dancing on the tables.
