Description: An elegant City destination, London���s famed Proud Cabaret nightspot and restaurant is modelled on a 1920s speakeasy, exuding all the glamour of a decadent bygone era. Designed by Russell Sage Studios and Danielle Proud, the venue, located just moments from Fenchurch Street, is darkly impressive, not only in its setting but in its notoriously titillating and extravagant programme of entertainment. A constantly changing list of events ensures guests enjoy something new and exciting every visit, from the best music played by top DJs to beautiful burlesque performances, live jazz sounds and clever cabaret, all by well known and breaking acts. Special event parties, one off's and series��� alike, provides an extra surprise and, of course, whenever you visit you���ll be treated to not just captivating cocktails and mouthwatering moonshine but superbly executed British dishes enjoyed retro Hollywood supperclub style and an informal bar menu featuring lighter offerings. After dining the Proud Cabaret party continues long in to the evening.

We went as a group of 10 for a hen party and overall had a great time. The decor and the atmosphere of the restaurant is great and the food was really good and so were the cocktails.

The main problem was the service. Our waitress took our orders at the beginning of the night and then we barely saw her again and had to keep trying to catch the attention of other table's waitresses (who seemed much more attentive) to order more drinks. We also only had one jug of water on the table for 10 people which wasn't enough (it was reaaaaally hot in there) and we had to constantly ask them to refill it as they never did otherwise. The busboy, however, was very quick to clear glasses and plates from our table...a bit too quick actually because he took things we weren't finished with, including a wine bottle with wine left in it.

The show was good but I've seen better burlesque dancers. The host, Joe Morose, made the entire show; he was hilarious and a great performer.

After the show there was a DJ and dancing which was fun but the dancing area is quite small and it gets extremely hot in there. They could do with getting air con.

I was taken to Proud as a Birthday treat and what a treat it was! From start to finish the evening was excellent. The staff were helpful and friendly, the service was good as was the food. The drinks are a little pricey but no more expensive than other City bars/clubs. The guy hosting the show made it, he is extremely funny (filthy) and engaging getting the crowd involved. The dancers were great, my only negative was the show ended too early, I would have loved the performers to carry on! After the show there is plenty of dancing.
If you want to get into the spirit of things ladies dress up it makes it so much more fun. I will be going back again. Great evening.

Attended on Friday 13th June, with a party of 7 celebrating a small milestone.
The food, the drink, the show, staff and entertainment were faultless, very professional and not in the slightest way sleazy.Felt welcome as soon as we arrived with drinks provided within a blink of an eye.
We booked and pre-ordered food using groupon (extremely good value for money).
And the feedback from all attendees was positive and eager to come back for the Summer Menu!

I attended the Proud Cabaret on Saturday 14th June for my Hen weekend, the show, service and food was excellent, I loved every minute and they turned the venue into a disco after which meant that we didn't have to go very far to finish off the night. It is a bit on the pricey side for drinks, so take a lot of cash as they only except 3 card payments per booking. I would definitely go again!
