Well might you wonder what goes on inside the curious corner building with its Taj-mahal-style architectural details and oriental roof… And once inside, Proud Cabaret does not disappoint. A plush and sumptuous night club with tables and briefly-clad cocktail waitresses transports you from Kemptown to the demi-monde of the 1930s – and a range of fun and and outrageous burlesque cabaret acts while you eat and drink. Performances are on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings — and the cabaret’s website has details of a number of packages including dinner from Proud’s bistro-style menu. Understandably popular with hen, stag and birthday parties, Proud Cabaret still manages to preserve a smoky intimacy which means that couples and smaller groups feel well looked-after too. There are also usually a limited number of non-dining, standing tickets available. The extraordinary venue (originally a mausoleum for the Sassoon family, can be hired for private functions.
