Circus is a collision of cabaret restaurant and cocktail bar in the heart of London’s vibrant Covent Garden. The four course Pan-Asian tasting menu is designed for sharing, with a vegan menu available, and guests can enjoy fun signature Circus cocktails and mocktails.

Guests are transported into a decadent world of glamour and escapism from the moment they enter, with the highlight of the restaurant, the 'Stage' table, drawing everyone's attention. As evening descends, the restaurant comes to life and the spectacle begins as diners sip exotic drinks while incredible circus and cabaret artists perform outrageous pop-up circus acts on the Stage table and wow the crowd. 

Entertainment accompanies every meal, including weekend brunches. The details of the performers are kept under wraps but guests can expect anything from jaw-dropping aerialists, to mind-bending contortionists and acrobats, fire-breathers to hula-hoopers, burlesque and drag. There's something exciting and different every night!

Brunch lovers will enjoy pop-up circus performances while they dine on a scrumptious three course brunch menu, with a vegan menu available, and brunch-goers can upgrade for 60 minutes of bottomless prosecco or mimosas for just £20. 

Book in to the restaurant or head over to the bar for a drink and bar snacks. 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 the drinks menu. Circus is open every Wednesday from October for dinner, as well as Thursday - Saturday for dinner, and Saturday brunches.
