SquareMeal Review of Proud Cabaret City

Starting out with its City flagship, this 1920s-style dinner-and-daliance outfit now boasts sister sites in Camden and Brighton. Each offers a raucous mix of scantily-clad waiting staff, cheeky cabaret and demure burlesque, supported by a regularly changing roster of themes, from Vegas and Gatsby to Broadway and The Blitz. Most obviously suited to birthdays, stags and hens, arrive with your party head on and expect plenty of audience participation. Evenings start with drinks and dinner, before the lights dim as desserts arrive. Undemanding menus explore the globe to satisfy most tastes, serving up thoughtfully presented dishes including curries, beef fillets and poached fish with lobster tails. A warm welcome is pretty much guaranteed, making Proud a good introduction to the world of burlesque for newcomers. If you're looking for an easygoing dinner which puts entertainment centre-stage, this is worth considering.

It won’t come as a surprise to learn that there are no private dining rooms at this glamorous 1920s-themed ‘speakeasy’ – you’d be missing all the action on stage. That said, the City venue is ready made for exclusive-hire events, and there are also six, eight and 10 person booths, with packages coming in at £75pp.

We went to this restaurant for our Christmas party and I was disappointed. Thankfully, we were all in good spirits because the service was deathly slow. Our drinks (bottles of wine) took 35 minutes to arrive at our table. The food was below average. The quality of performers, bar two of them, wasn't anywhere near good enough what we should expect by London standards. This wasn't helped by the horrible sound system that provided us with nothing but feedback from the speaker above our table. In every area it seemed like corners were cut leaving us wanting and expecting more. Clearly this is an attempt to surf the popular wave of burlesque to milk people who work in the city. It wouldn't take many improvements to turn this around but at present it isn't good enough for what they provide by way of food, service and entertainment.

we had a fantastic night out on saturday. the show was great and all the punters had made the effort and dressed up to the nines. I think we may have been the last to leave at 2am, as a result the bill did stack up somewhat, possibly due to the vast quantities of wine we ordered. At £49 per head for a three course meal and a show I think its great value. The food was of a very good standard. The pork belly was divine and the meat from the lamb shank fell apart. Choclate fondant and cheese plate were the best of the puds we tried. The service was wonderfully attentive and charming. All the staff seemed very chirpy and looked like they were enjoying themselves – always nice! I will be back.

I was lucky enough to have my husband wine and dine me at Proud Cabaret last weekend! It was the perfect way to celebrate my birthday, and I'd certainly reccommend it as a top venue to indulge in some naughty, risqué entertainment. Waiters were attentive, topping up the glasses regularly…perhaps slightly too regularly! A fantastic evening not to be missed.
