Cirque du Lagos


Following Lagos, London has long been the second cultural capital of Nigeria, the most populous nation in Africa. Whenever Africans want to shop, send their kids to school or simply relax abroad, London is their number one choice. Afrobeats music – arguably one of West Africa’s greatest exports – has now also found a home in London.

Cirque du Lagos is a London based concept club that fuses Lagos’ renowned party spirit with a circus-carnival themed environment. Lagos Cirque blends plush decor, superstar DJs, dancers and performers with the Afrobeats tracks that are taking the world by storm.

The Club


Tucked away behind an unassuming door on Mark Lane in London’s Square Mile District. And while the entrance may be subtle, inside the circus-carnival themed nightclub is anything but. Guests are treated to a thrilling assault on the senses from every angle, including magicians, burlesque angle grinders to afrobeats professional dancers, contortionists and stilt walkers among a host of weird and wonderful entertainment.

It is also famed for its superstar DJs, top mixologists and dazzling decor.

So put on your little black dress, iron your best shirt, polish those shoes and prepare for a night like no other

Our Story


The beginning

Cococure started in 2007 as an opportunity for members of the Imperial College London & University College London Afro-Caribbean Societies to network and mingle. Back then socializing between students and alumni was almost always done in the confines of the talking section of the library. The events were held primarily on Bank Holiday Sundays in London and over the Christmas break in Lagos, Nigeria.

Lagos Fridays was born

The Cococure brand took this elite group of people and together with London’s most exquisite venues, threw some incredible events. Unknown to this group of budding intellectuals, this was to be the birth of something bigger. 2014 marked the begining of a weekly friday night “LagosFridays” which filled a gap that was missing for a while. It also saw affluent africans partying together in London’s lush venues. Culminating in a mention in a standard article abtly titled : Rich, urbane and entrepreneurial: meet Africa’s new super-rich with a taste for the London lifestyle

New Year New Beginnings

In 2016 Cococure moved to a new home at Proud City Cabaret. With a new venue the concept of Cirque du Lagos was born. A club night fused with an African-style Cirque du Soleil, designed for sensory pleasure. Join us in embarking on this journey to uncharted territory it will surely be a delight.

We are here to make sure you have a great time
