If you’ve never watched a show before and want a gentle introduction to the world of burlesque, try The Play Room at Piccadilly Circus. On a Friday, the club travels back in time as you’re serenaded by Jack Valentine, a suited crooner singing Frank Sinatra hits whilst Delilah, a former underwear model, puts on a tongue in cheek burlesque show. Plus, singing trio The Puppini Sisters, belt out swing and jazz classics.
For something more sophisticated, the Bathhouse, a surviving treasure from Victorian England, will deliver. Once a Turkish Baths, the lavish and opulent surroundings add to the intrigue and glamour of its burlesque nights. The Tassel Clubs Dinner Party features different performers from the world of burlesque and cabaret whilst diners enjoy a three course meal.
Sometimes only a girly weekend will do, so book one of the many cheap hotels, throw on your tea dresses and enjoy an afternoon tea at Volupte, an intimate yet unassuming bar in Chancery Lane. Dubbed the perfect girly outing, Afternoon Tease boasts innovative cocktails, delicate finger sandwiches and fresh scones served by ‘Teasmaids’ (wearing traditional housemaids outfits but with a sexy twist!) whilst sultry performers entertain you. Acts range from husky voiced Nina Simone-a-likes to bold burlesque acts.
April is an ideal time to book one of the hotels in London as the city hosts London Burlesque Week. Between April 26th – 30th, London Burlesque Week acts as a centre stage for the world’s finest performers and boasts a packed schedule of high profile events, eclectic and diverse acts and an event that promises to push the boundaries of burlesque.
And whilst these are just a few of the shows on offer, in nearby Kent, The Britannia Grand Hotel hosts burlesque and cabaret shows every single night. The best part about this is never having to leave your hotel! So spend a night or two here to see how they entertain you in Kent.
