CAFé DE PARIS
HOUSE OF BURLESQUE BRUNCH Takes place at CAFé DE PARIS:
3 - 4 COVENTRY STREET, LONDON W1D 6BL
020 7734 7700
First opened in 1924, Café de Paris is a stunning grade II listed building, boasting grand sweeping staircases, beautiful eye-catching chandeliers and other eye catching original features. Louise Brooks made history when she worked there in December 1924, introducing the Charleston to London. Much of the early success of the Café de Paris was due to the visit of the then Prince of Wales who became a regular guest as was Cole Porter.
During World War II, on 8 March 1941, the café was bombed and the venue did not reopen until 1948 but re-established itself as one of the leading theatre clubs in London, playing host to Judy Garland, Josephine Baker, Frank Sinatra, Ava Gardner, Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall, James Mason, David O. Selznick, Jennifer Jones, Tony Hancock and Grace Kelly. In the 1950s Noël Coward often performed cabaret seasons at the Café de Paris as did Marlene Dietrich. It was also used in the 2006 music video for I Think We're Alone Now by Girls Aloud.
The venue official dress code is Smart Casual - the venue and we politely request no sportswear, scruffy clothes or tacky fancy dress. Smart jeans and trainers are welcome. Saying that, we love our guests to get into the spirit and put on their Sunday best - cocktail attire, seamed stockings, red lipstick, suits, ties, spatz, heels, vintage, dandies, sparkles, victory rolls and pearls - all are very welcome.
