Circus is a beautiful collision of cabaret restaurant and cocktail bar hidden in the heart of London’s vibrant Covent Garden. The highly popular Pan-Asian menu, created and overseen by Executive Chef Andrew Lassetter, is designed for sharing.

The stylish surrealist interior transports guests into a decadent world of glamour and escapism from the moment they enter, with the highlight; a striking quartz 'Stage' table seating up to 28 guests dominating the room. As evening descends, the restaurant comes to life and the spectacle begins as diners sip exotic punches and cocktails whilst beautifully skilled performers twirl magically in suspended hoops and wow the crowd. The adventures continue after dinner as the music is turned up and the dancing begins.

Entertainment accompanies dinner every evening the venue is open, Tuesday to Saturday, including Saturday afternoons. They always keep the details of our entertainment under-wraps but you can expect anything from aerialists, to contortionists and acrobats, fire-breathers to hula-hoopers, burlesque and drag. Something different every night!

Book in to the restaurant or head over to the bar. Circus is perfect for either a cheeky martini after work, or a full soirée dedicated to diving into the sharing menu and sampling something unusual from our drinks menu. The bar and lounge becomes buzzy late weekend evenings when the DJs turn up the music and get things moving as late as 2am.

Unfortunately Circus are strictly unable to accept hen or stag parties. They reserve the right to refuse admission at the door.
