I must admit to liking a gimic so when I heard about Cahoots, a tube themed bar, in Kingly Court Soho, I was keen to visit.
Look out for the signs “to the trains” when you are in Kingly Court and you will be greeted by a Cahoots “scoundrel” to check your name and talk to you as if you were in the 1940s. As you go down the stairs you pass the ticket office and then on into the tube!
I definitely recommend trying to reserve a seat in the one of the carriages, as you can then have the whole tube experience. A member of staff bounded over with a newspaper menu with 45 different cocktails, two tap waters and some popcorn.
To begin with we chose Cherry Top, a cocktail for two, which arrived in a large bottle with two tea cups. It tasted like an alcoholic strawberry milkshake!
Moving on, we had the Windsor is Coming (served in a cup with queen on) and Turning Over a New Leaf. If you like light and fresh cocktails that are not too sweet, I recommend the Windsor is Coming.
All cocktails are priced between £10 and £13, which is slightly more than other bars but worth the extra for the experience. Note: they will also add a 12.5% service charge on your bill.
TIP: If you want a table at the weekend, do try and book 3-4 weeks in advance as the only spaces left on a Saturday booking a week before were 4pm or 11pm.
