This world-famous nightclub, situated in the heart of Soho, is the destination venue for burlesque and cabaret shows, top comedy nights, music gigs and legendary club nights.

Its red plush and gilded interior is stylishly retro, offsetting its diverse contemporary output. Madame Jojo's most celebrated show is Kitsch Cabaret, an evening of feathers, glitz and dazzling live music, the first choice for guests who want a fun, entertaining and glamorous night out.

Went here with a group of the girls for a birthday. We got the VIP tickets and had seats downstairs. Funny compare, incredible acts(Storm Hooper...just wow!) And a really hot guy! Drinks were reasonably priced. Overall a really enjoyable evening. Wish it had lasted a bit longer though.

Good effort, fun, but the compare made it seem very amateur. The acts were good, there were seven performances that evening: four competition entrants and the three judges. The Burlesque-factor competition format was cheesy in the extreme. And the Best-Dressed audience member competition was completely cringeworthy. The event takes over another venue for three hours, then the venue reverts to... More

Went in November for the first time, the early Saturday evening show 6:30pm, show ends 8:00pm and left at 8:30pm. Unfortunately the venue was changed to a bar/club due to a problem at Madame Jo Jo's, @ 2 minutes away which was a shame as I was looking forward to seeing the venue. The venue however was very conducive to... More

The show I saw with a friend this month had been moved across the street. The shows were fun and light, the girls put on a great show and the crowd was happy.

Although never been to Burlesque before & didn't know what to expect, plus when we saw the outside of venue in Soho we were a bit unsure but once inside (SL) as Madam JoJo's was out of action, we were really surprised & had a great evening, full of fun, lots of laughs, show only lasts an hour & half...

Fabulous acts, fabulous fun, camper than Kylie! Lovely hostess, reasonable priced drinks, yes the venue is a little tired but if you are looking for a good fun, entertaining evening, a location for a hen party or a unique London night out - this venue ticks those boxes. Great acts.

We went here on a recent visit to London, specifically to see the Folly Mixtures Burlesque Show. Like the old fashioned Cabaret Style arrangement, and we had a little table on the lower floor near the stage. We booked for cabaret and rinks only, so can't comment on the food / nibbles options available. As expected the who evening was... More

Went to Madame J's last night as part of a hen night, bear in mind the average age of the party was 40, we weren't expecting to be up dancing like loons, singing along and generally acting like twenty year olds, um, but we did! We had a belly dancing lesson in the bar (full view of the rest of... More

Fake singing and nothing more! We expected a show but instead there was only some live singing. Girls screaming next to us...! Regret paying the money and wasting our time. We could have had better time seeing a film!

Madame Jo Jo's is fairly iconic SoHo, and many of the shows are very good --- espeically Cabaret Roulette --- saw their October show and had my old idea of what Cabaret was like blown out the door.

Staying in Soho

Neighbourhood Profile
The go-to district for a good time in London, Soho hosts a wealth of world-class theatres and a compelling lineup of cafes, restaurants, pubs, bars, and clubs. At Soho's core is London's original Red Light District and the epicenter of the LGBT scene – and thus the city's hottest nightlife. For shopping enthusiasts, Soho is not only the home of London's greatest concentration of boutique shops, but also the most strategic place to set off on a tour of the world's most celebrated department stores. In the southern part of the neighbourhood lies Chinatown, with its multitude of delicious and affordable restaurants. Closer to the Thames, Chinatown's narrow and teeming lantern-lit lanes spill onto the expansive hub of glitzy Leicester Square.
