Modelled on a 1920s speakeasy, Proud Cabaret City offers a high end dining and entertainment experience of unrivaled prestige. There is also an informal bar menu serving lighter dishes. The final insult was to come a few days later when we were charged for deserts, as the two courses should've been starter and main check your small print , you are also automatically charged for a programme on your table and £23. While some had gone the extra mile and donned flapper dresses and tuxedos, others had opted for jeans, a far cry from the suited executives pounding the streets above. Although the venue is pretty tired, Food and entertainment are excellent and as are the staff.
Both dishes were beautifully presented and given the privacy of our booth we decided to share which enhanced our dining experience. I have made an official complaint, but this still has not been resolved. The Proud Cabaret menu offers superbly executed British cuisine alongside international touches. The Midwest was lacking a major cabaret presence. The host was hilarious, the food was really good and they even worked my bf into the show. Choose from the extensive wine list, or watch as bartenders craft classic and creative cocktails.
Caberet was advertised starting at 1400. Proud Cabaret City events seem to be mainly attended by hen parties and birthday parties. The cabaret shows are great and you would be hard pushed not to enjoy them. There's global influence, so expect Thai steamed mussels and sticky yakitori chicken skewers alongside fillet steaks served with black truffle butter, sea bass with a chilli and rosemary crust, and roasted turbot steak served with steamed samphire, salsify and hollandaise sauce. My friends and I spent a very disappointing evening at Proud Cabaret which was purchased through Living Social, offering 2 cocktails and 2 courses with a Male Burlesque Show. The entertainment was hit and miss. It was all pretty good quality and tasty.
Proud is a great place but simply not right for The Carnival, hence why we have moved the show. I would so dearly love to rate this venue higher than 3 stars. It's always my go to place to give out-of-towners a Brighton experience to remember and it never disappoints. . Pretty liberal with music and will enjoy most tastes. Waited 10 felt this was enough! The list starts at £7 but the extensive menu offers indulgence of the highest kind, and particularly recommended are the Hanbury Spring Punch and the Cool Geyser.
Good food, great service and fab entertainment. The layout of the room is so that everyone can see and join in. Came here for a ladies lunch right before the Holidays. The quick-witted host brilliantly warbled a string of tongue-in-cheek show tunes, including Anything Goes and Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien in between poking fun at himself and at the audience. George and I promptly arrived, ready to be seduced by the sultry world of burlesque…. Currently closed, the Hanbury Club is one of the most beautiful venues in Brighton, perhaps too pretty for Brightons drinking habits hence the closure in late 2009. Rightly so, they should be proud as they deliver a wonderfully saucy package of food and fun.
Our evening was perfectly executed and full of hedonistic glitz and glamour. You got us here, lovers of cabaret. Well I was, but my husband having never experienced burlesque was a little less gung-ho. At this point the combination of cocktails and romance seemingly made us both feel rather whimsical and nostalgic a perfect date night! The food was preordered which made the service super slick but our waitresses were also engaging, friendly, helpful and super hot! Performers tested new material and ideas with a very diverse audience who attended the cabaret for the price of a few drinks. After dinner the main tables are cleared away for the dance floor and if you leave your balcony or edge of dance floor table this will be hijacked within minutes. Great food and nice show.
I have got to say it was not worth what we paid. Please see +Carnival:+A+Circus+Opera for show times etc. A successful cabaret venue contributes to Indianapolis achieving its vision of being a world-class city, and fills what was once an unmet niche in the local performing arts community. The building itself is hugely interesting as it was like going back in time. It does attract hen dos and birthday parties looking for a more sumptuous experience so it may not be for you if you prefer a more subdued affair.
It is now hugely expensive, poor quality of food, plastic performances, and the disco music after 10:30 is a deterrent rather than an invitation to stay for a dance. The whole experience is something that will stay with me for a long time. I have also been to film nights, where the venue seems like a completely different place. Still, I like to think it goes towards the performers, who put on a very good show. When I visited Proud in the City, my table was places directly next to the stage where I was able to enjoy three courses of fantastic food whilst watching three beautiful women dance over the course of two and a half hours, interspersed with superb presenting by comdian and performer Joe Marose. All in all, I would still go back because of the show but I wouldn't hold my standards too high for everything else.
Gathered my belongings and girlfriend and left the establishment! You definitely need to be ready for a bit of tit for tat, so having a bit to drink helps. When we started this adventure almost a decade ago, we could never have imagined then that we would be here in our very own glorious venue today. As downtown Indianapolis continues to grow, we are also thrilled to be a part of an emerging new cultural district — Library Square — alongside our neighbors the Arts Council of Indianapolis, Phoenix Theatre, and of course, Central Library. Some may wince at the £34-£49 package deal, but you can catch their 2-4-1 offers on their website or Groupon to get a bargain night out. There's an art deco, speakeasy feel to things here, with much of the cabaret following aesthetic suit. Last chance to see this unique Kinks exhibition at Proud Central. Some standard burlesque, an amazing performance with fire and they even had a male performer which made a nice change.
The audience participates in a direct, emotional conversation with the artist and leaves feeling contacted and personally touched. This sort of place is right up my street. Standards are high and I believe he has his eye on the ball with ensuring Brighton competes with the best of London. I will say though, they asked him to volunteer and said they would poor beer into his mouth. Whoever gave performances thumbs up obviously has never seen burlesque done really well. Enjoy a three course dinner and choose from our exclusive Proud cocktail menu.
