I went to The Box last weekend, and I have never been so disappointed in all of my life. The staff are rude, they over fill the club so you cant move or even breath! Had to queue for the toilet for 40 mins! But to top it all the performances are boring and not risqué at all, I've seen more interesting and risqué performances just at a burlesque night. And to top it all the place is full of chavs or cant handle their drinks so expect someone to fall into you then onto the floor. Dont go to The Box its A waste of money!
I recently visited The Box with high expectations for the entertainment and I was not disappointed! The staff were all very friendly and unpretentious. I was very impressed with the whole experience.
I went to The Box Soho last weekend and thought the burlesque show was good but the DJ afterwards was a bit disappointing. Overall I was impressed with The Box but they definitely need a better DJ!
OMG The Box is the best place I’ve ever been to in my life! I can’t believe that this group of guys sent 2 bottles of Dom Perignon champagne to our table :) Jamie Winstone was there as well, The Box is just the coolest place in London hands down! xx
The Box is simply put, the most unique place in London nightlife. Such a perfect fit for Soho. I’ve been 3 times now and every show has been better than the last one. Highly recommended!
I queued up for The Box in Soho last weekend, but the doorman said it was tables only for £1,000. It looks so so cool, can’t wait to come back another time.
Wow what a place The Box is! My girlfriend won a competition for a VIP table at The Box for the bank holiday weekend in August and I’ve literally only just recovered! It’s bloody expensive, but for a free night out it was amazing! I would give it 6 stars if I could!
I have been to many cabaret clubs over the years including le crazy horse and the Moulin rouge in paris and in my opinion they are just better that the box. Don’t get me wrong, it is a nice looking place but it just didn’t blow me away like other people are saying.
Went to one of the weekend shows at the box and had a great time. Slightly put off by the expensive drinks however, cocktails were about 15 quid! Nice ladies made up for it though.
Went to the Box over the weekend with some friends and by all accounts we were lucky to get in. Bouncers could be seen as being rude, but hey I didn’t want to waste time chatting to them anyway. Once inside the box you will be blown away as its incredible and really stand up above the other seedy cabaret clubs that are dotted around London.
The Box is an incredible venue, which should be respected regardless of what lies inside. Very discreet from the outside but opulent décor makes it really stand out from other cabaret clubs I have been to. Beautiful girls as well, of course!
The Box London really is something else, it is a club of very high standards both aesthetically and show wise. The dancers are amazing, and the drinks top quality although of course rather expensive.
If you dress like a chav you aren’t going to get in here at The Box. FACT. If you want to mix with the upper classes then dress like it. Some people need to make more of an effort.
Can’t believe how close The Box is to so many other clubs and pubs that I go to in Soho and I didn’t even know it existed. I read the ViewLondon review and had to give The Box a try as it sounded so up my street and it really was.
The décor and atmosphere of The Box is decidedly miles above the rest in this saucy Soho club. I went for an evening out and had a total blast.
Just wow is all I can say about this place! Had the most amazing night here at The Box last weekend. Was brought here for my birthday by friends and had a truly exceptional evening. The performances were a definite highlight. 5 star rating.
The cocktails here at The Box are just out of this world! Definitely some of Soho’s finest :)
A little over hyped in my opinion, I have been in the queue numerous times here at The Box in Soho and have only got in once. Really depends on what bouncers are on, but I will say that the club itself is pretty amazing, if only it were easier to get in!
My friends have been aching to come to The Box in Soho for ages as they have assured me it is the crème de la crème of the London club scene. Safe to say that this place does not disappoint. The vibe is glorious here and was fun trying to spot the celebrities out and about here.
I had been trying an absolute age to get into The Box in Soho and finally the heavens smiled down on me! Came for the evening on Saturday and this place is so gratifying.
The Box in Soho is so gorgeously select that you can bid adieu to the ruffians that frequent many of London’s Club scene. I have had the pleasure of spending a few fare evenings here and The Box only gets better every time you visit.
I thought I had experienced most of what Soho’s nightlife had to offer but nothing prepared me for the achingly cool evening that would await me here at The Box. My friend got us on the guest list and I honestly felt like royalty coming here. Have to say The Box is an incredibly saucy night out that only a mere few of us mortals can experience. A definite 5 star rating.
First of all, don't expect to get in. And secondly, it's The Box, play it cool and dress to impress. But not so it's obvious, yeah?! Ha! We have chanced it before and not had any luck, but when we did get in we loved rubbing shoulders with Cara Delevingne. Oooh.
I couldn't possibly comment on The Box as I didn't get in! My friends had got in earlier though, and they said it was every bit as bonkers as everyone says. They said they'd head back in a heartbeat - even with the queue.
The shows are ok, worth a watch if you can stomach getting past the obnoxious and self loving front door staff. The shows make this place go from dreadful to ok... If it wasn't for them the pretentiousness, ridiculous prices, rude staff, constant offers of drugs (and sex) would make this place make a night to forget and avoid.
After waiting for 2 hours the queue did not move an inch while doorman let may be a hundred in. There is no respect for people waiting outside and no information. If you are not let those people in just say it. Rude, ignorant staff is the least to say about them
The box club is a cabaret .people should try and know the difference between normal club and cabaret for and friends is a good place .
The most disorganized door I've seen. The guy that was at the door was clearly stressing out and couldn't coupe with such an easy and straight forward job(?). All the people dying to get in just made me not desire to be there. Flashing their cash and making full of themselves. Come on, its just a club. This pretentious clubs just make me think how shallow and ignorant some people are. Its a no no for me.
We got in on a guest list so didn't queue and were so excited about coming after hearing so much about it. The venue itself was impressive but the content was dreadful. The stage show was boring and cheap. Not shocking or entertaining. We also got treated like absolute c**p by the staff. We went out to the toilet and then weren't allowed back into the main room by security whilst the show was on. Which we'd waited 2 hours to see! The security guy was rude and we were made to wait in a corridor with only a handful of people so it would have made no difference if they'd let us in. We left with a bitter taste in our mouths having spent good money to be treated badly. I wouldn't recommend this to a friend
We visited this venue for a friends birthday. Under the hope it would be as exciting as a lot of the "IT" crowd have said. Upon arrival we were fortunate to get in quickly bearing in mind the party had put down £1,000 as a minimum spend for our room, and this would be done in just two bottles of vodka! Now i'm more than happy with a minimum spend and obviously i prefer it when its a challenge to spend that money on this occasion these prices are just excessive.
After the show the group came back up to find out as we had spent the money the room had been given away! And when we tried to get into retrieve our coats a bouncer wouldn't let us in we had to describe the items to get them back. We were disgusted Disgusted! The show was tacky and childish lasting 15 mins so it wasn't worth getting packed in an overly crowded room and confined by a variety of roped off areas.
Frankly if i'm in the mood for burlesque, i'll get the the Euro Star to Paris and watch Crazy Horse (fantastic)! Don't bother its a waist of money that could be spent at other establishments in London and have a much better night!
The problem with the Box is not that you may not be able to get in, It is the way you are treated.They made you feel like if you were trash.We are all human beings and some maybe richer than others but we all deserve respect.I have some news for you:You keep treating people like that and I can tell you that you are going down.Sooner or later you will.Even filthy rich people get tiered of places like yours.Chris, I hope when you are about town people treat you better than you treat others so they teach you a lesson on human respect.
Writing as somebody who *did* make it past this club's ludicrously subjective make-it-up-as-you-go-along door 'policy', I can confirm that your best efforts are rewarded by a venue with much more hype going for it than substance. Does 'anything go'? Of course it doesn't. The most risqué this place gets is equivalent to an edgy burlesque performance. There are occasional 'acts' on stage which are curious to enjoy, but anything but erotic. Anyone who thinks this equates to hedonism needs a good night out at a proper club where pumping music and rhythm whip the crowd into a throbbing mass. The Box is just a bunch of wealthy people (plus tragic wannabes) engaged in an overpriced circle jerk of mutual congratulation.
Save yourself the bother, don't believe the hype, and see to your 'needs' before leaving the house. Then get down with your bad self at any of London's superior, louder and more tolerant and accepting venues. There are some amazing places to enjoy but unless you're fixated by the need to be seen somewhere (even if it means a crappy night out) then The Box simply ain't it.
The most decadent and hedonistic club in London bar none. Reading through the comments on this page, it's obvious that people who give this place a low rating are bitter because they didn't make it past the queue. The hard truth is, if you're not wearing expensive clothes and you don't look the part, you won't get it. As for what goes on inside, my lips are sealed but put it this way, ANYTHING goes.
Hi people, The Box is pretentious. Its everything but not cool. Cabaret is the only good thing in there. Toilet attendant have more class then manager. Bartenders have high ego and hostess will turn you off. Taxi controller charge me double (50 to Highgate) because my wife was drunk?!?!? If you love music Djs are boring. But if you are thinking to go? Go! There are far more horrible places in London :)
The Box is the most daring and original club I have been to!!
The shows are awesome and you need to be open minded to see them. They are kind of like Torture Garden meets VIP Night club.. Some of shows are nothing short of amazing.. It makes shows at Cirque du Soir look a bit lame in comparison..
Raven the main performance host is awesome! 10/10..
The staff are pretty cool... As are the owners (there are several) who are normally about and probably the friendliest nightclub owners around..
The smoking terrace is sweet (like Maddox/Luxx) to meet and chat to people..
The Box has a main downstairs area which is where most of the tables are.. There are shows at 1am & 2am both lasting about 20 minutes.. Then upstairs in the smaller floor there is another show lasting 5 minutes at 3am.. Try and catch it all.
The Emperor's New Nightclub. Really, really horrible bouncers treating clients like dirt even though they're handing over outrageous sums for drinks. The main room smelled damp. The only saving grace was the hostesses, who were polite. Save yourself the bother - stay at home bossing yourself about in the mirror while drinking distinctly average wine and throwing handfuls of cash out of the window. For mugs only.
I absolutely love this place. The show they produce is flawless, intelligent and sexy, each of the performers offer a high standard of skill and imagination. They do use the same performers, but I have never seen them repeat the same material. The staff are very friendly, but sincerely not in an kiss azz way. The music is good and the clientele are not like the money grabbing WAGS you find in most clubs. It is difficult to get in, but each time I have gotten in I made sure to put on my glad rags and smile. Great fun!
We didn't get in. After forty minutes in the queue they spoke to us and said three guys, no way; that if we walked down the street and found three girls, any three girls, then we would be straight in but three guys, even wearing expensive suits, it wasn't going to happen.
So that's tip number one: have at least as many girls as guys in your party.
But, just as importantly, do not queue. The whole time we were there, not one person from the queue got let in - even parties of all girls, young and well dressed. You have to walk up to the rope, tell them you want to get in or you are going elsewhere, and you will get in.
If you are all girls, and look under twenty, then you don't even have to stop walking: they lift the rope when they see you coming.
The only exception to this was two guys who walked up and said they had a table and were let straight in, no questions asked. So you could probably blag you way in like this, as the people inside don't know what you said to the people outside.
The music that came out of the doors sounded the same as every other club, and the people who walked in looked and sounded no different from anyone else reasonably well dressed in Soho - but you'll have to ask someone else what the club is like, as this is just a review of the queue!
I went to the Box last Saturday for my stag do. My mates sot us in which did mean we avoided the queue. It had an interesting play list, the show wasn't all that shocking the staff were mixed some friendly some not so. As me and my brother didn't look like the money people mainly ignored us part from the transvestite who was the nicest person there. My recommendation is go if you want a sort of upmarket strip bar but if you've been to Amsterdam you might feel a little cheated. On the flip side most of my mates had a great time.
Went to the box on Saturday and after everything that I read I was gearing myself up for not being too disappointed if I didn't get in. Started queuing up at 10 ish and was told the doors open at 11.00. I would highly recommend if you do not have a table- then you should definitely queue early.
After waiting around 45 mins the bouncers came out and started scanning the queue for who they would let in and who they wouldn't. Its pot luck at this place- if you around 3k to spend on a table you are guaranteed entry otherwise its really based on how you look.
I managed to get extremely lucky and skipped the "guestlist" queue and "table" queue by talking to the manager and walked straight in :)
Staff were welcoming inside and the atmosphere was great! Good smart crowd, a bit preppy but definitely better than having some brainless bimbos that cheapen the place. Hope they stick to that policy to keeping it exclusive. So for the plastic/essex type girl-i wouldnt bother.
People dress smart and glamorous on a weekend but I have been told on a weekday a lot of the crowd come in alternative outfits.
I read that the show was shocking but to be honest I didn't think was THAT much different to any burlesque show that I have been to previously.
Drinks start at around £12 a cocktail so its not that much different to other London nightclubs.
All in all, I had a good experience and if you are lucky to get in, then its something different that London has to offer.
