Circus is a collision of flamboyant restaurant and swanky cocktail bar in the heart of London’s vibrant Covent Garden. The three course Pan-Asian tasting menu is designed for sharing, with a vegan menu available. Guests can also 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 artists perform outrageous Pop-Up circus acts on the Stage table and wow the crowd. 

Pop Up 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 also 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 - Saturday for dinner, and Saturday brunches.
