“Bringing together a Michelin-worthy menu, spot-on service and jaw-dropping spectacles, Circus really is the ringleader.”Gunpowder Magazine
Circus is a beautiful collision of cabaret restaurant and cocktail bar nestling in the heart of London’s vibrant Covent Garden. Our highly popular Pan-Asian fusion menu, created and overseen by Executive Chef Andrew Lassetter, is constantly transforming with new and exciting dishes.
Cocktails from our low-lit bar and lounge attracts celebratory groups in search of the happy combination of fine drinks, food, service and entertainment. An evening at Circus will take you from drinks, to dining, to dancing on the tables and all with a sprinkling of glittering cabaret.

The kitchen itself is a dynamic show with shutters opening onto the dining room, revealing the kitchen team hard at work.
The bar takes the crown for being the most unique and entertaining in London. Perfect for a cheeky martini after work, or a full soirée dedicated to diving into our sharing menu and sampling something unusual from our drinks menu. Our bar and lounge become buzzy late weekend evenings when the DJs turn up the music and get things moving until 2am.

Reservations can be made up to three months in advance. We require card details / deposits to secure all reservations. Be sure to read our cancellation policy fully before booking.
Online reservations can be made here for up to 6 people. If dates appear to be full please check with our team as availability is not always accurate. For groups of 7 or more – or any other enquiries – please call or e-mail our bookings team who will be happy to help.
We take reservations for dinner at our ‘stage’ table for 12 to 28 guests. Our other restaurant tables (each with a great view of the entertainment) seat between two and fourteen people. Please note that we do not take specific table requests aside from the stage.
Reservations are allocated at least two hours. Prior to or post dining, guests are invited to join us at the bar. Guests tend to stay on after dinner, especially at weekends when we have DJs playing until 2am.
Entertainment pops up during the night in short, sharp bursts. There are no set times, but most dinner bookings will catch two – three performances.
For groups of up to 7 guests, you can order from our a la carte menu. For groups of 8 or more, we serve our sharing menu only. The entire menu is served ‘sharing style’ so you don’t have to make any choices and guests get to try a bit of everything. The sharing menu is also available to groups of 4 plus if required. For diners with allergies or intolerances, let us know in advance and we will try our best to accommodate.

We don’t operate a guest list at the door – we just suggest that guests arrive as early as possible to ensure entry.
We ask that guests make an effort when visiting. There are no hard and fast rules (smart jeans / trainer are fine) but the higher the ladies heels and the sharper the gents suits, the better.
We very strictly don’t accept any hen or stag party bookings (or any large single sex group bookings) at Circus. We implemented this policy a while ago as we found that the balance and atmosphere of the restaurant was greatly compromised by lots of large single sex groups, and it made for an uncomfortable dining experience for smaller parties. To maintain the friendly and relaxed atmosphere of the venue we stick tightly to this rule and will not admit entrance any guests attempting to bypass this. The largest single sex booking we can take is for 6 guests with no exceptions.
We are strictly over 21s.
Monday to Saturday 9am – 6pm.
If you do need to cancel, we require at least 24 hours notice for all groups of 9 or less. Without this notice, we will charge £25 per head. Credit card details are automatically erased by our system a day after a booking. For group bookings of 10 and over please note that deposits are non-refundable and will be retained.
Unless we receive notification from you that you are running late for your reservation, we unfortunately will be obliged to release your table for other guests fifteen minutes after your booking time.
We take credit card details for all bookings. If you do not show and fail to cancel we will make a charge to your card of £25 per person.
The stage is our truly unique dining table which seats up to 28 guests (We take reservations here for groups of 12 plus). The table is exactly as its name suggests, the focal point of our nightly entertainment and at weekends, doubles up as an extended glittering dance floor.
Our venue is not huge, therefore any of the tables that we book for dinner have a great view.
Sorry but unfortunately not. Many of our guests join us to celebrate special occasions and often ask for special or specific tables. It is impossible for us to accommodate all of these requests so to be fair to all guests, we do not accept any requests whatsoever.
Our bar is open to one and all, so please do join us for drinks. There is no door charge, aside from Friday and Saturday nights after 9:30pm, when we charge £5 per person.
We take reservations for groups of 10+ (dependent on availability) in our lounge area, with the latest booking time being 7:30pm. We take a deposit to secure reservations. Please contact our reservations team for more information.
The average cost is £50 - £60 per head before drinks. As a suggestion we recommend 6 or more dishes, including mains, between 2 people.
For groups of up to 7 guests, you may order from our a la carte menu. For groups of 8 or more, we serve our sharing menu only.

For diners with allergies or intolerances, let us know in advance and we will try our best to accommodate.
