It was time for a good outing and one of my oldest and very best supporters was entertaining me last night. He and I have a close relationship within the boundaries of how these arrangements run, so I knew it was going to be something special.

I was not disappointed.  This modern day spin of a French vaudeville circus is located in trendy Oxford at the Slide Lounge Nightclub. It turned out we had arrived a bit early so I suggested we go for a drink at the Midnight Shift, a gay bar located just up the street.

The Midnight Shift bar has been there for many years, certainly I remember going there a few times in the late 1980s as a young whippersnapper. It’s an iconic Oxford gay bar with a trendy bar staff and clientele to match. I guess my very vanilla, heterosexual supporter was a bit hesitant venturing in to this somewhat unknown territory but my sensual manner and delicious low cut outfit convinced him to enter this particular den.
While I could see he was a bit uncomfortable at first, it’s a really well laid out ambient place, with great service. We both enjoyed our drinks before we left for our big event.
Arriving at the Slide Lounge, the doorman greeted us dressed in a top hat and tails with a cheeky French accent and a French themed hostess escorted us to our table . What a cosy room! Opulent chandeliers, themed lighting and an awesome music score doing Oxford Street night-time entertainment proud and that helped set up the night for an unforgettable experience.

We started our circus adventure with a Slider cocktail and a Cosmopolitan.
Out came the MC Verushka Darling a 6ft drag queen that had legs up to her armpits, mmm leg envy, bah! She introduced each of the seven courses of food with a stage act in between.

What spectacular entertainment! The acts ranged from acrobats and jugglers to fire eaters lying on beds of nails, not to mention the sexy exotic dancers. All up the show is a really erotic affair and my eyes and ears were popping with the stimulus. I was feeling very flushed but just managed to compose myself – somehow.
The atmosphere, lights and stage effects were brilliant and the show was a very slick run operation. Outstanding! If you are going for the show you will be delighted.

As for the Autumn menu, I think in trying to be so unique it lost the plot a little. Some examples of the dishes were a goat cheese ice cream and a balloon that holds the aroma of popcorn ;-O  as well as a  latex glove issued to use to eat mushroom pie, off beat? YES! To be very honest, we would have been happier with just three courses of more conventional food.

All up if you want a night with a difference I can highly recommend this experience.

My wonderful supporter decided to take me back to his circus tent and practice some acrobatic moves of his own, Ha! Another great night!
