Proud Cabaret

4 Minster Court
Mark Lane

Proud Cabaret runs supper club evenings from Wednesday through Saturday - you get a three course meal and a full evening's entertainment (and on the weekend your dinner comes with a glass of bubbly as well). The evening I was there, entertainment included swing dancing, cabaret-style singing, and a bit of burlesque stripping (including a surprising act where 'Agent Lynch' started off in an astronaut suit before getting down to her tassels). The venue is pretty plush - lots of red velvet and comfy banquettes - unfortunately our party was seated behind a giant pillar which meant a few of us had to get up and stand somewhere else to watch the show whenever someone came on stage. The food is decent - I certainly wouldn't go just for the food, but as something to eat while watching a show, it was better than expected. My beef carpaccio was tender, and the sea bass was cooked well and tasted fresh. The cheese platter was a bit disappointing - I was not really that fond of any of the cheeses, but oh well. It was a great night out to celebrate K so that's all that really matters!
