Quite possibly the smallest bar you will ever find, this venue used to be a public toilet and was converted into a very cosmopolitan cabaret venue. It has a prime central location but as nobody really knows about it you can always get in and get served pretty quickly or grab a table and take advantage of the waitress service. The only downside is that the drinks are not so cheap.
Seen numerous very good shows here, bits of piano and 50s style singing to more surreal performance art type shows. Very intimate and well programmed.
Oh and make sure you nip to the loo and work out how to lock the doors before going about your business. I won’t give it away but go check it out…

Went to see Eurobeat last night, a spoof of the Eurovision Song Contest. The show was very funny and audience noise was strongly encouraged, as far as the actual theatre goes, it was a classic old west end theatre, red velvet seats and fancy gilt detailing all over the place. The staff were great though, they obviously enjoy their work and were very friendly. Made such a difference to have the ushers making as much noise as the audience and actually having bar staff who can hold a conversation with you at the bar rather than shoot you an icy glare as they fleece you with their overpriced drinks.
A fun night, nice theatre, very entertaining show. Saw Into the Hoods before as well, they seem to be picking up the cream of the Edinburgh Fringe and bringing it to London, I look forward to seeing what they bring in next.
