Once the West End's most salubrious cottage, supposedly the haunt of Wilde, Orton, Gielgud & Crisp, CellarDoor is now London's cult cabaret bar, secreted beneath the Aldwych in a space just big enough for cats (both feline and human) to swing. We're open until 1AM seven nights a week with free acts from 9PM each evening including drag queens, femme fatales, magicians, crooners, burlesque beauties & more.

What can I say.... it’s been one of my favourite spot in town for years now. Love the vibe, the music, the mixed crowd and the sense of freedom once you walk in.

Spent a few hours here on a recent Saturday night. It was brilliant, it is quite small but my husband and I did have a table. The entertainment was really good and the waitress was lovely. Would highly recommend.

We stopped for a drink on the way home, never been before. The venue is small, there was a drag queen who was brilliant. My espresso martini was surveyed in a mug which I thought was quirky. And the toilets tricked me.

I went the CellarDoor on Saturday after the PRIDE celebrations with a friend. We had such a fun time- the crowd were really friendly. Great entertainment, venue and energy- danced all night long. Cocktails were amazing and cant wait to go back : )
