Info for Musicians...

Our music dinners are shows (not background, except on the rare occasions we do jazz).

The acoustics are beautiful!  The tiled walls add a natural reverb which is truly very special.

Our guests are dining but they've come to see a show and tend to be attentive, not talking during performance.  All tables are for two people only which keeps any chat volume very quiet.

The nights have a following of regulars, and artists almost invariably want to come back (even if only for the food! ;-)

How to get a gig

We nearly always find artists ourselves.  We're always on the lookout for artists who excite us and who we feel will fit the vibe.

‍Gigs are only once or twice a month and so usually we have more artists than we have slots.

If you feel you feel you might fit the vibe then please do get in touch>>.

Soundcheck & showtimes

We ask that artists arrive by 5pm latest to setup and soundcheck before guests arrive from 6pm.

We obsess over getting the sound right!  The room is reverberant so the sound can be muddy if we're not careful, but amazing when we get it right.

Showtimes are 7pm for an hour, then 9pm for an hour with a new audience.

Post covid, capacity is now only 25 people per show instead of 35.

"The last gig I did that touched my soul was at The Wet Fish Cafe' in West Hampstead. It was such a beautiful, small place to perform and I felt very at ease there..."
