A member of our party had paid for a table & drinks, half our party got refused entry for no reason other than it was busy. Shambolic organisation out the front, aggressive and rude staff on the door. Avoid at all costs.

After some 'gap years' I decided to try out a london club again and had been told that the cuckoo did it well. It was not a pleasant experience !! Door staff are exceptionally opinionated and outright rude- is there really a need for this ? Staff Inside the club were not much better. Quite an electric Mix of people... More

I went to this club with a friend after a good dinner in the Madison's restaurant. We were having such a good night till we went to the club. As we were in the queue, waiting for more than 25 min, we saw a few people arguing with the security guys. When it was our turn, the security guy asked... More

After a decade, The Cuckoo Club is still the coolest club in London. Themes and decor changes yearly and especially Halloween is a must.

Literally queued, a guy in the line suggested i take my glasses off, I laughed it off, got to the front, and the woman on the door just shook her head, and we were turfed to the side.... Really weird. There are many places in the area that I have had good nights at, I'd avoid this snooty place.

Had a reservation and still turned away for no apparent reason - very rude staff "we can cancel your reservation at anytime" apparently.

Description
Appealing to the more discerning late night London crowd tired of identikit, faceless bars and clubs with no creativity and soul, The Cuckoo Club features 5,000 square feet of ostentatious design, spread over two floors, and a founding committee that reads like a who's who of creative talent in London, described in the influential Vogue List as "formidable". Recently redesigned by Barbara Hulanicki, interior designer & founder of iconic fashion house Biba, featuring some of Europe's most proficient mixologists and an electrifying and eclectic musical output, The Cuckoo Club delivers unbridled, unquestionable glamour for London's party cavalry.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.
