SHEEKEY’S TURNS SPEAKEASY
J Sheekey Oyster Bar, the baby brother of the famous J Sheekey seafood restaurant that sits next door, is running a season of monthly Sunday performances. Lively music, theatre, comedy and improv performances are the order of the day, inspired by speakeasy cabarets of the prohibition era. Tickets are £30 and include dinner and the show, and the season runs until February 2012. For more information visit www.jsheekeyoysterbar.co.uk

FLORIDITA NOW OFFERS CABARET
Soho’s trusty fun-house, Floridita, has also jumped on the live performance bandwagon, launching a cabaret act on Wednesday evenings. The Globe Girls, a glitzy cross-dressing singing and dancing troupe, will be the stars, alongside other special guests. The cabaret menu is rather tempting: a three course dinner for £35 that includes the likes of salmon and tiger prawn ceviche, spit roasted suckling pig with garlic, lime and oregano and charcoal-gilled chicken churrasco. Performances start every Wednesday night from 7.30pm until midnight, after which DJ Ady Jay takes to the decks till 2am. For more info, see www.floridita.co.uk/london/cabaret
