Dining and dancing: London Mums visit Sound Cafe at The Cumberland

Need a mum’s night out or somewhere kid-friendly? Then look no further than Sound Cafe at The Cumberland in Marble Arch.

This rock star-themed venue offers nightly live music until 10.30 pm and has a decadent Americana menu to fit the bill with accompanying cocktails.

London Mums headed down to see if it lived up to the hype…


The Atmosphere

With a history spanning 90 years, The Cumberland is no new hotel and its central London location is perfectly placed for visitors in Marble Arch.

While the hotel has been a firm fixture for many decades, the Sound Cafe space is a new interactive addition that hosts entertainment, music, sports, food and drink for when you need a breather from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Although London Mums attended without any small guests, the Sound Cafe allows children of all ages complete with a three-course mini menu. The venue felt spacious, comforting and with lots of soft lighting.

The tables and chairs were well placed and there is a dance floor area at the front (for when the cocktails kick in!)

From the moment we sat down the waiter greeted us warmly and we even found out his favourite place to go on holiday! The drinks arrived promptly and the food was fresh without any waiting. While we were there to dine, we think it would also work well if you fancied a liquid lunch or girls’ night out. We were sold!

The Edibles

The Sound Cafe’s Americana menu has recently been revamped and now boasts a few of their old classics with more modern additions.

Available are an array of dishes including meat feasts for two, southern chicken with blue cheese sauce and ribs and BBQ sauce, all a little naughty, but ever so delicious!

The drinks menu has cocktails galore including some such as Green Goddess and Rocket Man.

They also offer some classic salads and a vast dessert menu (we can confirm, the apple cobbler was the winner). Tip. Go hungry, the portions are huge!









The Entertainment

With different singers crooning on stage including 90’s belters and some more modern hits, the backdrop with a live band set the scene for a fun night out.

Sound Cafe offers different entertainment every night of the week, and if you love to let loose then the open dance floor at the front is the perfect space to go for it. Kids are not sidelined either, they can even get up for a little boogie should they wish!



In a nutshell

As the evening drew to a close and London Mums reluctantly bid farewell to the culinary treats and cocktails, the Sound Café was still buzzing with diners as we left.

The venue was upbeat, entertaining and fun for all the family, perfectly placed in central London so we feel it will also work with children visiting the capital.

With prices starting at £14 for adult mains, and kids eating free with every adult main meal you could also grab a bargain. Sound Cafe, we will be back, but next time with little ones in tow!
