Book a table, soak up the vibe and stay for the drinks at Cahoots Bar in Soho
Hidden beneath Kingly Court in a disused underground station, a roaring new bar has sprung to life. Cahoots is a 1940’s, post war inspired bar and despite the am dram it’s really rather fun.
To the noise of a distant tube, we walked downstairs and into a small room with a window, where we were greeted by a conductor who asked us in a very British accent ‘what the devil we were doing’ – thankfully we had a reservation so we left our very un-1940’s laptop bags and headed into Cahoots.
A glamorous hostess led us through the bar to our little table, which was an upturned trunk in an old train. It was packed. The detail was incredible, down to the accents, cocktails and mess tins that their food was served in.
We hit the cocktail menu (old newspaper) and chose the Give Peas a Chance (£10) and on their recommendation a Vera Lynn (£10). Despite the odd pea garnish, my Give Peas a Chance was a refreshing blend of Grey Goose, lime, agave and champagne. I could have drank pints of the stuff. Sadly they didn’t serve them like that so I knocked back several to make up for it. The Vera Lynn came in a camp as Christmas mug that you would find at your nan’s house and was a sweet mix of gin, Stone’s Ginger wine, apple juice, pear and elderflower cordial.
If we had been in the main bar we would definitely have settled in for the evening, but having got the tube to work already we needed to be elbow free for the evening. Cahoots has a late licence and music on the weekend, so I will be hopping on board again soon.
