I’ve just got back from a few days in London, and though the weather was gorgeous, I spent most of my time in various places underground.. All of these places are amazing.. go, now!
Cellar Door is an intimate bar beneath the Aldwich in a space which was once a toilet, and is now one of my favourite places to hang out.. they have an assortment of amazingly cool performers playing each night.. my favourite being Kitty La Roar and Nick of Time, who present the KitKatCaberet every thursday night from 9pm. Have a look at them mashing up Radiohead and Sinatra below;
Located underneath the railway arches of London bridge, The Southwark Playhouse is an amazing venue, putting on some great work.. Check it out!
At Greenwich, via the (admittedly slightly smelly) foot tunnel. Your best bet is a guided tour, organised by the Brunel Engine House Museum.
Okay, so this one isn’t underground- but it is in the dark.. The USP of Dans Le Noir is that you eat your meal in complete darkness, enabling you to focus only on taste and smell. Diners start in the (well-lit) bar, and can choose from four secret, colour-coded menus: blue for fish lovers, green for vegetarians, red for meat lovers, and white for ‘chef’s surprise’. Food is served in a pitch-black dining room, where you are guided and served by blind staff. Set dinner costs £39 for 2 courses and £44 for 3 courses.
The incredibly talented Belt Up Theatre have done it again, with this stunning version of Macbeth, performed underground in the haunted Clerkenwell Prison..
