twentytwentyone logo


Circus is a restaurant that is also a venue for cabaret style acts, where the staff become performers, as well as the diners. The interior, by Design Research Studio, takes its inspiration from the surrealist art movement, with a landscaped ceiling of fully mirrored balls and a faceted reception desk that plays with of the 3D signage like a kaleidoscope.

The main dining table brings a theatrical presence to the restaurant, doubling as a stage with stairs at either end for access and lit in a pool of spotlight. twentytwentyone worked with the designers to supply a range of furniture and lighting to compliment the dramatic design peferctly.
