One of the most busy, roof-raising nightclubs in London . Saturday nights at Cafe De Paris nightclub are huge with previous A List guests that include Puff Daddy, Prince, Helena Christianson, Kellis, Jodie Kidd and Vivienne Westwood.

We came here for a private party and I was surprised with the venue, so somewhere that’s very touristy, it seem quite peaceful. I haven’t experienced the venue open to the public, but I thought it was very opulent and I liked the fact that you went downstairs to access it.
This is a large run-of-the-mill London nightclub in Picadilly. Relatively painless to get in, you can easily afford to get a “VIP” table/area if you feel like investing in a bottle (circa £100 for vodka bottle) as a group.
Decor is interesting and the service is good. The whole place gives the atmosphere of a 19th C cabaret club. Waitresses are in suitable attire.
Crowd is varied and the music is pretty chart like, but with a penchant towards R n’ B. Has GoGo dancers also and smoke machines.
Quite a few music videos have been filmed here for its unique decor.
Great location, tucked away right off Leicester Square. Great decor and design, unlike most London places. Lots of tucked away rooms and great atmosphere.
They have different events on here all the time and always a great night out.
The Cafe de Paris, is one of the most famous and durable venues in the world. With a glittering history, spanning nine decades, the Cafe has consistently played host to a wide variety of powerful and absorbing performers and guests-members of the aristocracy, eminent political figures, royalty, dazzling pop stars, captains of industry, superstars from the silver screen.
Opening its doors in 1924 the Cafe de Paris quickly established itself as one of Europe’s premier nightspots. Much of the early success was due to a visit from the Prince of Wales, who became a regular guest bringing with him the crme de la crme of European society.
Much of the early success was due to a visit from the Prince of Wales, who after an impromptu midweek visit became a regular guest bringing with him the crème de la crème of European society.
In 1939 the Café was allowed to stay open even though theatres and cinemas were closed by order. People gossiped their way through the blackout and the Café was advertised as a safe haven by Martin Poulson, the maitre d’, who argued that the four solid storeys of masonry above were ample protection. This tragically proved to be untrue.
On March 8th 1941 when two 50K landmines came through the Rialto roof straight onto the Cafe dance floor; eighty people were killed, including Ken 'Snakehips’ Johnston who was performing onstage at the time. Ballard Berkeley (who later played the Major in Fawlty Towers) was a PC constable first on the scene who was shocked by the bodies, many unmarked at their chairs, and looters cutting ring fingers off corpses.
The Cafe De Paris re-opened in 1948.
Frank Sinatra rubbed shoulders with Tony Hancock, Eartha Kitt with Spike Milligan, Grace Kelly with Noel Coward. Anyone who was anyone was seen at the Cafe.
When Puff Daddy wished to celebrate the European release of his new album - when Sony wished to celebrate 20 years of the Walkman - Prince wanted to throw a secret gig for the elite few - he got on stage at the Cafe. From the James Bond party to the Vivienne Westwood catwalk show to the Spice Girls party to Lennox Lewis celebrating his world titles.
The re-modelling of the VIP rooms in 2004 included decadent drapes, an Alice in Wonderland red velvet padded corridor and 7 huge red velvet beds. Stars such as Christian Slater, Kelis and the ubiquitous Calum Best were swift to test the bedsprings!
You pretty much need to be on a guest list to get in but it isn’t impossible.
Cafe De Paris is a well known restuarant and nightclub in the heart of the west end seconds from Leicester Square.
Unlike other clubs it doesnt try too hard and hide behind an unmarked door, the welcoming sign invites you in but the velvet rope still marks its exclusivity. Another guestlist venue, with the best night being on a saturday night through londonparties. Expect the usual high entry prices and drinks but what you get in return is a HUGE , decadent nightclub that screams out old school glamour. With commercial music that is perfect or a night dancing away. The VIP balcony over looks the main club and is much less crowded than the dancefloor below. A good night out.
