With a full-scale, spectacular show, brand new for 2014.
Taking place at a grand-scale secret location – a magnificent 1930s hidden gem – tucked away just a minute’s walk from St Pancras Station, N1.
While the impresario of the establishment has been detained overseas, London’s favourite salon of extraordinarily talented performers re-opens at a new location – now hosted by the most dysfunctional couple in cabaret - Frisky (Frisky & Mannish) and Marcel Lucont.
Full line-up to be announced: a theatrical production to include world-class jaw-dropping circus acts, mad comic musicians, fire-breathing dinner guests, Black Cat resident showgirls Cabaret Rouge in their biggest 5-girl chorus line to date, a stellar line-up of cabaret performers and an after-party with live music and DJs until 2am.
£25 -Table Seating – Cabaret Style – EARLY BIRD
£17.50 – Mezzanine Seating – Unreserved – EARLY BIRD
£8 – After Party Only
Dining options available on request.

A brand new residency for Christmas 2013
Fridays 6th, 7th and 14th are now SOLD OUT
The historic Grill Room at Café Royal hotel will be treated to a feast for the senses this December, as The BCC hosts a series of low-key cabaret dinner shows – re-imagining the faded glamour and lavish excess of after-hours Victorian London. These cabaret events will be the first of their kind since the venue’s restoration and reopening, and not to be missed!
Expect to see the cream of the crop of London’s international cabaret circuit presenting exclusive acts in an intimate and uniquely opulent setting. Live musicans and wandering magicians brush shoulders with the city’s elite, to enjoy the artisan cocktails and festive fine dining on offer. All brought together by The Black Cat’s award-winning compères and conferenciers – Dusty Limits and Lili La Scala.
Dusty Limits & The Band
The Weimar compère beyond compare
Lili La Scala
Vintage songbird from a bygone era
Frisky (Frisky & Mannish)
Slinky jazz standards and quirky covers
Flaneur, raconteur and bon-viveur
Purveyors of playfully perverse musical comedy
Original and utterly compelling ukulele songstress
Supremely elegant gentleman juggler
Exceptionally entertaining showgirl dynamos
Close up magician extraordinaire
True to its original and glamorous spirit, Café Royal has reopened as a luxury hotel combining contemporary design with historic detail. The iconic Grill Room (originally 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 Grill Room 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.

JOINT STATEMENT FROM DUSTY, VICKY AND DAVID OF THE BCC:
Everyone’s favourite Friday night feline is moving on. After a year of critically-acclaimed, sold-out shows at Café de Paris, he’s feeling frisky and going on the prowl. (He’s always had a bit of a roving eye, to be honest).
Huge thanks to the highly skilled team of performers and technicians who helped us realise our vision for this dark and delicious spectacle – for their skill, dedication and most of all for the camaraderie that made every show sensational (and justified every hangover). Thanks also to the staff at Cafe de Paris.
Most of all, we’d like to thank our audiences for being so attentive, appreciative, and outstandingly attractive. We raise a glass to you all!
We wish the Café de Paris bonne chance with their in-house cabaret shows for next year. But it’s not over yet! The final 4 weeks of BCC at the Café de Paris are 90% sold out – to get your paws on one of the remaining tickets, visit the BCC website.
2014 is shaping up to be an exciting year for the company – and we can’t wait to share our plans with you all!

The word ‘phenomenal’ just about does it justice . . .
One of the best nights out that the city has to offer
A totally charming and whimsical night out
Glorious eccentricities. . . Finely-tuned louche delivery and devilish humour
The kind of experience that really does offer something for everyone
Cafe de Paris’ Titanic Ballroom has been transformed into a bohemian lair
A decadent and otherworldly show . . . the result is a truly unique experience
We strongly recommend that you attend.
Outlandish cabaret and variety work of the highest calibre, with acts flowing into one another . . . and the audience
A languor, a grace, which belongs to a bygone age
Slick, gorgeous, sassy and such fun. Loved the show last night. xx
THANK YOU for an amazing night on the 26th of April – we all thought it was one of the best nights out we have had!
Fabulous night watching the ever-awesome performers at The Black Cat Cabaret, with the heartbreakingly beautiful and talented Dusty Limits compering.
A great little venue and a superb show, I will definitely recommend it to anyone, except perhaps my Grandmother…
I was lucky enough to be at the opening and it was breathtaking! A really special night – definitely recommend sitting down for the meal.
Finally went to see The Black Cat Cabaret last night, after wanting to go for ages. Thoroughly entertaining, really enjoyed the diversity of acts, and the venue is plush – recommended!
Black Cat Cabaret was fab last night. Cafe de Paris is such a beautiful venue, great performances and way too much wine. . . Ouch!
The Black Cat Cabaret was an amazing time out – it is bloody good. Made an excellent 30th birthday.
This is a real night out! For those planning a visit to London, you’ll be entertained like in the old days.
Attended Friday’s show and loved it – thanks for an original and very special night out!
Amazing night! Great food and fab atmosphere! Highly recommended! Thank you for a lovely night xx
Dusty charming as ever, Laurie impressing with her reverse striptease, the dancers divine, and Vicky a revelation.
Ooh la la. . . We loved the petite French dominatrix. . . What a great show!
Amazing night at Black Cat Cabaret last night – now dying to run away and join a cabaret!
Beautiful food and beautiful people! We had a lovely night watching you guys, all the acts were spot on!
Amazing night out. Fantastic show and performers.
Amazing venue, excellent food (best steak I’ve ever had) and lovely show.
Impressed by The Black Cat at Cafe de Paris – pacy, cohesive, nice historical refs. Laurie Hagen, Cabaret Rouge, and shadow play stood out.
An amazing show! Fantastic variety of performers. If in doubt, don’t be. . . Go to The Black Cat!
Fantastic… the second time was even better than the first!
Sensational show last night! Like being dragged through a Toulouse-Lautrec painting by the scruff of my neck.
Truly dazzling show indeed yesterday, I never expected such a polished, witty & sophisticated affair, thank you!
Completely brilliant. Thanks to all for a spectacular night of entertainment and salacious gigglement . . .
Amazing! Seeing it again next week.
Brilliant show by the The Black Cat tonight. Love the Montmartre feel transported to snowy soho.
Black Cat Cabaret = best reason for travelling to London.
