Walking into Bloomsbury Ballroom, London Cabaret Club's new venue, a sense of exclusivity is immediately apparent.
The club has launched its new LCC Night Lounge, a night offering up theatre, music, food, DJs, a range of cocktails and, of course, cabaret.
Running from 10.30pm to 3am every Thursday, Friday and Saturday, I'd advise taking it easy on the drinks before this point if, like me, your Friday nights usually start straight after work at 6pm.
There are a strong range of cocktails here including Space Oddity (gin, lychee & rose cordial, lemon juice and egg white) and Sympathy For The Devil (vodka, raspberry & passion fruit purée, chilli, elderflower cordial and chocolate bitters).
But on this occasion my friend Joe and I were recommended a bottle Primera Luz, a solid merlot from Chile.
The venue itself is fantastic since not a single seat in the house has its view compromised, with dark blue, neon lights adding to its already impressive intimacy.
The performers enter the stage - tall, focused and of impeccable physical attributes that resemble catwalk models - and begin dance routines.
There are deft touches of ballet, flexible gymnastic moves and host of other routines that are hugely impressive in their technique and physical prowess.
The choice of music is fittingly upbeat, ranging from 90s classics to Ed Sheeran remixes before inviting the crowd to join in on one of its last performances.
It was, however, over a little quickly and it did seem disappointing that it couldn't go on a little longer.
Following the display, Joe and I soaked up the clubbing part of the night which is said to have attracted celebrities including Simon Cowell.
And it's not hard to see why, since as a journalist (someone pay for my drinks, please, anyone?), it was clear that champagne and expensive drinks are of the norm.
It feels like a secret, since it's tucked into the quiet Bloomsbury Square away from the chaotic Southampton Row just one road up.
The cabaret performance is a treat in high quality performance, offering up routines from a range of highly skilled professionals whose performance is hard not to enjoy.
Getwestlondon gives LCC Ballroom three stars out of five.
