I was working as a London Fleet Street Magician in one of the most talked about streets in the city. What a great mid-week job this was. I was able to perform close up magic around the tables followed by a short cabaret before the guest left for the boat trip home.
The Punch Tavern gets its name from the legendary Punch Magazine. This former Gin Palace built in the 19th Century was popular amongst those who worked at the famous publication. These pub regulars lead to the naming of this Grade II listed building in the 1840s.
The watering hole has not lost its original character. The main bar remains, as does the rear dining room in which I performed.
There is a large selection of gin and whisky as well as both cask ale and a good selection of wines. The food is seasonal and has a Sunday roast to entice customers into the city on a day off.
I was working for a company called Media Futures, a digital consultancy firm. The company was entertaining guests from around the world. Before arriving at the restaurant, they had taken a trip on the London Eye before arriving via a boat trip on the Thames. Once they were settled they were entertained with live music and magic while they ate.
“Thanks for last night, Tim. Everyone loved what you did. There were lots of nice comments on the boat home. I am sure I will be back in touch. But for now, thanks again.”
