Looking for a night with a sprinkle of sensuality and seduction? Then you shouldn’t miss the fabulous Burlesque show at Wam Bam Club in the heart of London’s Piccadilly.
Each Saturday the Café de Paris in London’s Coventry Street turns into an extraordinary place and offers guests a first-class performance and the perfect burlesque-experience.
We absolutely didn’t know what to expect when we decided to join the show for my sister-in-law’s bachelorette party last Saturday, but entering the place we already felt the vintage glamour and historical atmosphere of the building. Café de Paris opened its doors in 1924 and since then established itself as one of Europe’s premier nightspots.
The show was opened at 8pm with dazzling lights by main host Lady Alex, who involved the audience from the beginning of the evening. After that, the “Cabaret Rouge”-ladies allured the crowd with a traditional Can-Can dance in pompous costumes and were followed by comedians, singers and magicians.
The cream topping were the burlesque dancers swinging their feathered fans, taking their gloves off slowly and teasing the audience with their secret smiles.
During the show we were seated at a lounge table on the upper floor, where we had a perfect view on the performances and could enjoy the royally treatment of our hostess, who was properly dressed in a Dita-esque tutu and a pink corset.
Although tickets can be bought for the showcase alone, the club also offers both two and three course dinner tickets where guests take seats at 10-12 man tables in true old cabaret style in front of the main stage. You also should not miss to subscribe for the free burlesuqe-dance lesson before the show if you wish for a taster in the art of tease.
Another highlight of the show was the after-party at 10pm, when the venue turned into a fancy nightclub. The burlesque-dancers on the stage made the vintage glamour atmosphere merge with contemporary house and hip hop beats.
Wam Bam Club at Café de Paris is absolutely the right choice for a glamourous night out in one of London’s most sparkling places where people still dress like movie stars and the magic of burlesque is spread all around.
