Hi guys! *waves* Guess who’s back? Back again? OK I’m not about to break out into an Eminem number don’t you worry BUT it seemed so fitting seeing as my last blog post was 11 days ago! Now I know that’s not a long time for many but it has felt like it for me! (In bloggersville anyway)
I hope you have all been well! If you follow me on Twitter then you will know I had taken a bit of a break from blogging due to assignment deadlines. I know many of you study/work/parent/blog all in one and I commend you for managing your time so well! It was quite refreshing to step back and take a bit of time out from blogging as well as social media because it allowed some me time. I was able to catch up with friends, do a spot of holiday shopping (haul post soon) and generally just chill out! I hope you haven’t missed me too much but without further ado let’s get into this post!
Over the weekend a group of friends and I went to Circus London to celebrate a birthday, check them out here. I was so excited when I was told this is where my friend was going to celebrate as it is not your typical night club! This was my first time visiting Circus London and I’m glad I went to experience something different on a Saturday night. It’s a lovely little cabaret restaurant in Covent Garden which serves mouthwatering food from a Pan Asian menu and let me tell you now, the food was to die for! I couldn’t get enough of the squid and many other items from the menu! Nom nom nom!
The evening kicked off with dancers performing on the main stage/table and was over quite quickly as the food would arrive shortly after. The atmosphere was very chilled with a steady medium between being able to have a conversation with your party and being drawn to the stage by the performances. The dress code was smart casual with most people making a real effort but not overboard which was nice.
As we celebrated a birthday, we were presented with a set menu to share which we preferred rather than to order individually, which plays to the advantage that the whole party can eat collectively. This was around £60-£70 per head which can seem quite expensive depending on how you view this but I think its reasonable for the amount of food we had, the quality of the food and the service on the night plus the show throughout the evening. There were a variety of dishes however some of them didn’t make it to the blog – let’s just say there were a few speedy Gonzalez’s around the table that night lol! But you can see the remainder of the food on the sharing menu for all that we ate.
Accompanying the amazing food were the cocktails and usually I go crazy with cocktails but I toned it down this evening hehe. I had a Beast of Byakko cocktail to drink which I was drawn to because of its description tasting sweet and tropical yet looking dark and stormy. It had a mixture of rum, fruit juice and the strangest ingredient I’ve ever had in a cocktail…. charcoal powder! Which is why on the eye it could look quite like an oreo milkshake rather than a cocktail!
And then there was cake!
As a first impression, I enjoyed the experience at Circus London as it was something different to a usual Saturday night on the town. We had nice food and drinks, received a good service on the night, and the entertainment in small intervals between meals worked really well and was a good way to break up the evening. I wish I was able to capture more but have a look at a few of the performances below.
Have you been to Circus London before? Is this something you would be interested in? Let me hear your thoughts and thank you for reading and I hope to see you on my next post! xx
