What are your usual whereabouts at 10.30pm on a Thursday night? If the answer is “tucked up in bed” then this probably isn’t for you. But if you’re a night owl who is often found wandering the West End at that hour (ideally after a dinner or a show, rather than a late one in the office) then we know a place where you can continue your evening in style. And if you’re more likely to be found mindlessly scrolling social media in front of the TV, then we refer you to the immortal words of Sally Bowles in Cabaret (although we may have taken some artistic licence here):
“What good is sitting alone on your phone? Come hear the music play……”
Where exactly does one find live music playing at bedtime on a schoolnight? New theatre kid on the block, The Boulevard Theatre, has you covered. This exciting new venue is home to a series of post-theatre late night cabaret shows, with each evening (from Wednesday to Saturday – you don’t want to peak too soon in the working week!) having a different theme. Thursday is theatre night and sees West End stars performing in an exclusive cabaret by way of the suitably stagey name “Finale”.
