The dance is just as advertised. I bought an early bird ticket, making this a great deal. As an out of town guest I was pleased with how friendly everyone was. Black Tie Ballroom Club is a great concept and very well executed. I hope to make it back for another dance soon.

The best place to do partnered dancing if you like dressing up and prefer live music. Cheap at £10 for early bird tickets and the location in Fitzroy Square is charming, too. The Indian canteen in the same building does a three course set meal for £8 which is a bonus. The beginners half hour dance lesson is a thoughtful taster for those who can't do partnered dancing,The main drawback is they close early at 10.30 pm. The strict dress code helps the place feel period, and most glamorous women competition encourages effort dress wise. The vocalisr is a professional opera singer who can sing in tune,, and without a microphone, which makes a change. It's also pleasant to hear records and a band that are not ear shatteringly loud, and I liked the idea of banning mobile phones, but suspect ti went down less well with others
