If you're going - go with a big group (at least 12) and book the stage table. We had an amazing time. Yes, we had a set menu and the meal was a bit rushed -- we only had half an hour for each course...More

Overrated on food but entertainment good. Small venue and very busy. Limited food menu, average and overpriced. Cocktails good. Burlesque and trapeze and Bollywood acts great. Mistress of ceremonies tried too hard, cringey one liners to mostly male customers. Loud noisy groups at main table....More

Description
Circus is an innovative combination of West End cocktail bar and cabaret restaurant set in vibrant Covent Garden.The restaurant boasts a highly praised Pan Asian dinner menu, created and overseen by the revered chef Andrew Lassetter.The stylish surrealist interior, formulated by iconic British designer Tom Dixon, transports guests into a decadent world of glamourous escapism from the moment they enter. For those looking for a drinks or dinner venue in Covent Garden to escape the mundaneness of the outside world, then Circus is ideal; the cocktails are heavenly and the dinner menu will delight even the most discerning of palates. As evening falls, the venue springs to life and the spectacle begins as diners sip exotic punches and cocktails. West End London is synonymous with theatre and drama, so it is fitting that Circus hosts complementary cabaret style entertainment at centre-stage of the venue. The charming and mind bendingly skillful acts appear in little bursts throughout the night to entertain and delight.After dinner, the adventures continue as the music is turned up and improptu dancing often occurs. With knowledgable cocktail bartenders furnishing guests with cleverly crafted drinks late into the night, diners and drinkers alike can relax for an entire evening, with a seamless transition from bar to dining room to dance-floor.
