It's not just Circus' location that's secretive, but also the nightly entertainment you're in for that's kept under wraps. Situated under the streets of Covent Garden, head over to this restaurant and bar and you'll get top-notch nosh and drinks as well as an impressive array of circus performances, with everything from fire-breathers to acrobats, drag to contortionists.

Gremio de Brixton

Tucked away in the crypt of a church, Gremio isn't quite what you'd expect. A haven for tapas dishes and sangria, it's got all the airs and graces of a hidden restaurant with the charm of Europe. Stay sipping on their house cocktails after your meal and watch as the venue transforms into a vibrant and buzzy party hotspot. 

La Bodega Negra

Watch the shock on your mate's face as you take them through a sex shop, only for them to discover this incredible speakeasy. The naughty-looking nook isn't what it seems, instead, La Bodega Negra is a fantastic Mexican restaurant and bar where you can eat and chat the night away.
