From clubs with late night live shows to exquisitely themed restaurants, this list has everything you will need when deciding where in London to take your client out to.

If you’re looking for the best, out of ‘The Box’, unforgettable night out, look no further than these iconic London clubs. From perfect cocktails, to unbelievable shows these 3 are guaranteed to please.

While all of our clubs provide a phenomenal experience, these 3 step outside the box and offer more than just a club, they offer a transportation to a world of cabaret, burlesque and all things weird and wonderful.

The best places to take clients in London


The Box, a hotspot for celebrity sightings in Soho is the self proclaimed ‘Theatre of Variety’, and an iconic spot which pushes the boundaries of cabaret and shows the more promiscuous, twisted side of London. This exclusive Soho members club is definitely one of the best places to take clients in London. Set up as a 19th century theatre the art deco furnishing and extravagant live shows make it the perfect place to take the client who likes to think outside ‘The Box’.

The sister to the club of the same name in Manhattan, it had a reputation to uphold from the minute it opened its doors, to create an entertainment that will be unforgettable and see how far they can push themselves.

A place that is to be seen to be believed, found in the corners of Soho, The Box is a sure to impress venue, with a decadent drinks menu, food served until late at night, and a cabaret of quirky until 3AM. Just remember to dress up in your best glamour and reserve your place beforehand!


The best places to take clients in London


If your client is looking for something a little different, consider Cirque le Soir, a staple club of Soho, and we would go as far to say, the whole city! Boasting 4 themed club nights a week, there is something here guaranteed to please everyone.

Their Mondays consist of the ‘most unorthodox’ party you will find in the city, and the best way to start a week off, with celebs and socialites regulars of this event, it is not one to be missed. However, if your client isn’t with you on a Monday, fear not as on Wednesday’s Cirque le Soir caterers to the Hip Hop fans with their Hype Hop night, dubbed as London’s original hip hop party.

For your client who is a little more adventurous, we suggest Censored, Cirque’s Friday night, offering a more edgy, unadulterated burlesque experience, with something exciting happening everywhere you look. Every Saturday, they host their reintroduced dark take on the traditional circus, Bordel. Expect theatricals, booze and an unbelievably after party. However, to avoid disappointment, a table booking is more than suggested, and remember to dress smart! The VIP club is really worth visiting and one of the best places to take clients in London. 


The best places to take clients in London


The club Reign, located next to Piccadilly Circus station, while only having been opened last September has already made itself a huge name on the London clubbing scene, and it’s not hard to see why. Offering shows containing everything from fire-breathers to acrobatics, the club does everything it can to preserve that vintage circus feel and make their customers forget where they actually are.

A definite must see and one of the best places to take clients in London. Self proclaimed as a mix of ‘Las Vegas and Moulin Rouge’, the club takes acrobatics and makes it look effortlessly sexy and exciting. But this comes as no surprise when you find out the creators are those also behind Cirque le Soir. This staple venue is a must attend show for anyone looking to impress, just remember, ladies in heels and gents in smart shoes. 

If you’re looking for something slightly more intimate, London’s sophisticated bar scene might be what you’re looking for. We have handpicked some of the best bars of the city that all have a little twist of something vintage to give your client an unforgettable experience!


The best places to take clients in London


Cahoots bar is a must for anyone with a love for anything vintage and is one of the best places to take clients in London. Inspired by the 1940’s, it makes you forget that you are actually in modern day Soho. And if a 40’s themed bar still isn’t special enough for you, this one is disguised as a tube station, and the theme continues once you enter the platform, to an underground vintage tube ride.

The decor is all themed accordingly, with tube seats, and suitcase tables, and vintage galore adoring this disused underground station. Our recommendation is to take your client on a Saturday, were they offer their Squiffy Picnic, with the poison of your choice and a picnic basket brimming with uniquely British treats. If that wasn’t enough, every Saturday they provide a classic British music experience, with swing music and war era themed costuming and sounds. This is the ideal unique place to take a client to show them what being British really is.


The best places to take clients in London


From the creators who brought you Cahoot’s, comes Bart’s, another period themed staple of the city which is one of the best places to take clients in London. Their motto, ‘speakeasy, drink hard’. Set in the 1920’s as a prohibition style bar set up American gangsters, the bar well and truly commits to its theme. Nestled in Sloane Avenue secretly hidden as a block of apartments, to keep the cops from raiding the place a password is required on entry (P.S. don’t worry, if you book with us, we’ll make sure you know it!). With their menu intricately designed as a comic book, it shows off their collection of signature cocktails, which comes with a hefty price tag, but pack a punch and are well worth it!

If the sharers aren’t your thing, you could go for one of their many exquisitely designed individual cocktails, of which you have plenty to choose from. However, if you don’t want to step out of your comfort zone too much, they offer a full selection of all the classic cocktails, from Bloody Mary’s to Cosmos.

If you’re a bit peckish, they also offer an intimate but delicious selection of Japanese food. Now, if for some reason you still don’t think this is enough for your client, you could take them to their weekly Criminali-Tea event on Saturday. This weekly event, disguised as an adventure of secret messaged to sneak in and avoid the cops, is the perfect way to spend a Saturday afternoon, and once you make it in, you are rewarded with their illicit liquors and a selection of their teapots with a twist and classic snacks.

But they warn you, the cops are always on the lookout, so be prepared for a raid!


The best places to take clients in London
