Hoping to replicate the success of Piano in Kensington, irrepressible crooner and ivory tinkler Bazz Norton has taken over what was previously the Rouge cabaret lounge in Smithfield. Rouge is the (inherited) colour in a dive that looks like somewhere that Christine Keeler might have frequented in her pre-Profumo heyday. Listen to standards from back in the day mixed with more modern material played in jazzy style until late (not Sundays). It’s high-spirited, friendly and inclusive – even the biggest Glee-hating grouch is likely to be sucked in. And with no cover charge to bump up prices, it’s also an affordable night out – so order a bottle of Laurent Perrier (£62.50) as the band plays The Night They Invented Champagne, or take it easy with a Chilean Sauvignon Blanc (£20.95). Booking essential.
