Dinner and a show! That’s what’s on offer at Circus on Endell Street.
Kemey and I dropped by last week and had a delicious time.
Dinner? Pan Asian plates paired with inventive cocktails. I particularly liked my Miso Black Cod main (with pickled baby ginger & lime, £32). Kemey loved her Soft Shell Crab Salad starter (with green mango, lotus root and sweet tamarind dressing, £12).
Cocktails were tasty too. My Casa Ananas (Mezcal San Cosme, fresh lime juice, red chilli syrup, pineapple, apricot brandy, smoked chilli salt, £10). Kemey’s Red & Ginger (Perrier-Jouët, rhubarb liqueur, home made rhubarb, lemon, bourbon vanilla, ginger root purée, £12) was a fresh and flavoursome take on a Bellini.
The show? Fit guys and gals doing athletic acrobatics and sexy contortions to a sultry beat with a cabaret atmosphere. We were in the bar area and had a good view, but there didn’t seem to be a bad seat in the house. For an especially up close performance see about booking your seats at the “stage table” where between servings, your setting will be cleared away and the performers do their things inches in front of you.
Service during our visit was super swift and very friendly. I’d be inclined to go again.
Assuming the place isn’t completely booked for tonight, Circus would make a very smart venue for your Valentine’s date.
