Last weekend I went to a cocktail bar/cabaret restaurant in Covent Garden called Circus. I had never been there before and didn't know anything about the place, so I was quite surprised to see burlesque performers climb onto a long banquet table (where people were still eating!) and begin dancing and twirling through hoops. Just when I thought things couldn't get any stranger or more exciting, some sexy ladies entered and began playing with fire!
I plan to go back there sometime soon. Their cocktails are incredible - they have everything from lavender honey sours (Irish whiskey + French herb liqueur shaken with fresh lemon and lavender honey) to mixed berry juleps (cognac and bourbon churned with mint, seasonal berries, and demerara sugar).
