Expect live music, floor shows, alternative circus, dancing girls, roving performance, comedy, aerialists and a host of other entertainment contributing to a feast for the senses.

The Café de Paris is one of the original homes of Vaudeville in the West End. Regular performers throughout the early years included luminaries such as Noel Coward, Marelene Dietirch and Louise Brooks, who made history when she introduced the Charleston to London at the venue in 1924. Café survived a devastating bombing in World War II , and has contunued to provide the backdrop for many of London’s wildest moments ever since.
“It‘s about time we started to claw back the West End from the ranks of insipid, recycled musicals and featureless big box clubs. We are taking our cues from the great parties of the past and creating something fresh and exciting for 2011 in the capital; a new Golden Age for the 21st Century” - DJ Lucifer Box
