Cabaret Night at Floridita, Soho

Floridita, Soho

With knitting and crochet classes back on the scene, and vintage fashion gracing our catwalks, retro, it seems, is back in vogue in London.  All we need now is somewhere to go to show off our new vintage shoes and handmade scarves (which, although slightly uneven, we are very proud of).  And I’ve discovered just the place – Floridita Cabaret Wednesdays.

I went along to sample the cabaret entertainment and 3-course dinner that they put on every Wednesday night. 

The dinner we were served was good; flavoursome, well-cooked food, matched by very impressive, friendly and attentive service. There is the option to order off the a la carte menu, but we stuck to the Cabaret night menu.  I had a warm parmesan and courgette tartlet to start, chicken churrasco main, and banana and acai sorbet to finish it all off.

While the food was delicious, it was easy to become distracted from it by the amazing cabaret acts that simply stole the show.

And who wouldn’t be distracted by glittery red shoes, burlesque, feathers, sequins, West End singers, an array of wigs, and what must have been gallons of baby oil and make up? Punters drinking rum cocktails and nibbling on tapas at the bar even formed crowds around the restaurant area to watch the spectacle.  The main attraction were the Globe Girls – a 5-piece act, 3 globe girls and 2 globe boys, performing fantastic routines (featuring some impressive high-kicks and splits) to songs by the likes of Lady Gaga and from West End shows like Chicago. 

So if you’re into your vintage cabaret nights, good food, rum cocktails and generally need something to add some sparkle to Wednesday nights, then I recommend you give Floridita a try.
