  • “Bringing together a Michelin-worthy menu, spot-on service and jaw-dropping spectacles, Circus really is the ringleader.”

    Gunpowder Magazine
  • “When you think every design concept has been exhausted, you find somewhere with hoops swinging mere feet above dining tables, a bespoke dancer's pole and giant silver flamingo feet on your table; that's why you come...”

    Marina O'Loughlin, Metro
  • “It's hard to concentrate on the food when there are fire eating ballerinas and scantily clad beauties whose antics on the suspended hoop would've made Houdini blush.”

    Anastasia Hancock, Fluid Foundation

Welcome to Circus

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 menu, created and overseen by Executive Chef Andrew Lassetter, is constantly transforming with new and exciting dishes.

Stay a while

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.
