London Never Dies at The London Cabaret Club

Whatever your name is, be sure to book your tickets for London Never Dies launching this October at The London Cabaret Club. Created by London Cabaret Club directors Eveina Girling and Doni Fierro and following on from the brilliant success of the 2017 version, there will be new surprises and electrifying stunts plus incredible vocalists performing some of the most iconic songs from the Bond soundtrack. With 4-D special effects, and a fine dining menu created by new head chef Burim Asllanaj, check out all the details, here.
Eggslut’s ‘Eggfessional’ Booth with Bompas and Parr
It’s a bonkers idea but then, the restaurant is called EggSlut after all! With outlets in LA, Vegas and Tokyo, and famed for its Slut on the menu (cage-free coddled egg on top of a smooth potato purée, poached in a glass jar, topped with gray salt and chives, served with slices of baguette), EggSlut has joined forced with cool kids Bompas & Parr to unleash the first ever egg dining booth at the new EggSlut restaurant at 19 Percy Street, Central London. The booth can be booked via their Instagram page for a slot during which guests will treat it an ‘eggfessional’ – capturing cathartic confessions on camera. Now don’t all scramble at once…
