Hosted at the Hotel Café Royal’s historic, intimate Oscar Wilde Bar at Hotel Café Royal, the show brings together West End glamour with Soho bohemia in an opulent gilded setting.

The Black Cat Cabaret at the Wonderground is home to modern cabaret in all of its wondrous variety – from the sacred to the profane, the lyrical to the downright louche. Join our “wildly talented mix of international circus and cabaret elite” (Metro) together with three acts never before attempted inside the beautiful vintage Spiegeltent.
“Distinctly contemporary, fusing old-world glamour with original songs, burlesque and circus-style performances.”
- THE STAGE ****
“A glorious mix of dazzling acrobatic skill, comedy set pieces and risqué artistry…a truly authentic recreation of a bygone bohemian era.”
- EVERYTHING THEATRE ****
“The music throughout the night excels, knocking every element of drama or frivolity up a few more notches. Impossible to miss too is the magnificent Spiegeltent where all of the action takes place – almost another character in itself.”
-THI IS CABARET

Every Friday and Saturday night
The historic Oscar Wilde Bar (formerly the Grill Room) will be treated to a feast for the senses, as The Black Cat presents a series of low-key and intimate cabaret dinner shows. Expect to see internationally renowned cabaret artistes presenting exclusive acts in a uniquely opulent setting – cabaret singers, character comedians, highly-skilled performance artistes, magicians and live musicians – plus DJs until late.
True to its original and glamorous spirit, Hotel Café Royal has reopened as a luxury hotel combining contemporary design with historic detail. The Oscar Wilde Bar, formerly the iconic Grill Room, established in 1865 has been exquisitely restored to its original Louis XVI detailing and is now the place to enjoy Champagne, cocktails and a light menu. Nestled between the elegance of Mayfair and the creativity of Soho, the Oscar Wilde Bar is where great minds came together to change the world. It is in this very room that Oscar Wilde fell in love with Lord Alfred Douglas, Aubrey Beardsley debated with Whistler, David Bowie retired Ziggy Stardust and Mick Jagger, the Beatles and Elizabeth Taylor danced the night away.
All tickets include table reservation for the whole evening.
