Life is a Cabaret

26th August 2009

Multi-tasking is where it’s at folks. With i-phones doubling up as all singing all dancing entertainment centres housing everything from our social diaries to music collections, it stands to sense that our choice of night life venue should also tick all the boxes that constitute a great evening.

Located in the historic Old Truman Brewery on hip Brick Lane, The Brickhouse lies on the original site of the street's old music hall – a serendipitous home as the venue recaptures the spirit of the original 1930's supper clubs while remaining on the cutting edge of East London cool.

The dynamic restaurant-cum-supper-club is attracting a chic and creative young crown right from across the capital. The white minimalist-style space with its vast skylights is set over three levels and comprises a ground floor bar, dining and performance space overlooked by two galleried storeys – the first with booths and private dining and the second with four massive super-king sized double beds – all over-looking the action below. There’s also an outdoor terrace for al fresco drinks … and the smoking fraternity!

With regular DJs, resident Cique de Soleil style aerial duo Leo and Yam and cabaret and burlesque from the world renowned Globe Girls, your supper is sure to be served in style. The menu from executive chef, Matt Reuther is eclectic, modern and verging on molecular with highlights including Rare tuna with wasabi foam and Pork belly with langoustines and diners can either order a la carte or take advantage of the bargain five course £25 set menu.

With sculptures filling the space's nooks and crannies (check out work by one-to-watch, Louise Greenfield, who hails from the jewellery world and has evne worked with Vivienne Westwood), a 4am licence for night owls and a back door through which celebrities slip in and out with alacrity, The Brickhouse is both the perfect hideout and the place to be seen.
