"HOUSE OF MEIHUA"
-Sunday Supper Club-

COMING SOON to Courtesan!

"The plum blossom, known as the meihua (Chinese: 梅花; pinyin: méihuā), is symbol for resilience and perseverance in the face of adversity, because plum blossoms often bloom most vibrantly even amidst the harsh winter snow. The plum blossom is seen as a symbol of winter and a harbinger of spring. The blossoms are so beloved because they are viewed as blooming most vibrantly amidst the winter snow, exuding an ethereal elegance, while their fragrance is noticed to still subtly pervade the air at even the coldest times of the year"

Like the Meihua, burlesque and cabaret has shone brightest through some of history's most difficult times, bringing vibrance and beauty into a darkened world.

Courtesan brings you a new night full of wonder for all the senses with a rich line up of some of London's top burlesque and cabaret talent to enjoy alongside it's premier selection of dim sum, cocktails and female led wine list.
