Prepare to Rock Like There's no Tomorrow
Looking out towards the Thames while dining on fine wine, caviar and oysters may not make you feel like you've been transported to Caledonia, but Boisdale's vibrant live music restaurant in Canary Wharf is probably the best place to go for Scottish cuisine in London. They serve a traditional roast Macsween haggis, Loch Duart salmon, and Buck rarebit, along with scrummy sticky toffee puddings and crumbles. What find most unusual is their Cigar Library; not only do they have a lounge for smoking, but they actually have a cigar menu.
It makes me wonder what the place is going to be like on the 12th of April, when they are holding a special Eighties Jukebox Night. Do you know what 80s Scottish food was like? I can't say I do, but hearing the words 'eighties' and 'food' in the same sentence does not exactly make me think gourmet. Thankfully, I think it is just the music that is heading back in time, and when I hear the words 'eighties' and 'music', my outlook is a lot more positive.
Featuring the ultimate live party band, Permageddon, you will be able to choose from over two dozen eighties songs including Jackson family hits like Black Cat, and Beat It, as well as songs by Cher, The Survivor, and Europe.
Tickets range from £10 to £40, and aside from the music, there will also be a contest with big prizes valued at £500 to be won; these include a three course dinner for two with wine, gift membership, band meet and greet, top table, premium music tickets, and a song dedication.
